100% Raw & Getting Stronger

I have to share this information with you because people always ask where a vegan gets their protein (not to mention a raw vegan).

I have done weight training on and off for the past 30 + years. I haven't always been consistent and there have been times when I didn't make it to the gym for periods of time.

This time when I went raw (May 2008), I decided I didn't want to lose muscle. I made sure that I was regular and consistent in my weight training routine. I have to say that I am amazed at how strong I've become Not that I wasn't strong in the past, but I am almost 58 years old and haven't been this strong for a long time.

I am writing this for those of you who visit my blog and think that by going raw or becoming a vegan, you will lose muscle. That is not the case. If you work out with weights consistently and push yourself to higher weights when possible, you don't have to worry about losing muscle.

I don't ever remember having such hard thigh muscles. I plan to continue pushing myself to see how well I can look as I reach my 60s and later years. I am committed to both my raw lifestyle with fitness cross training.
