AmandaBecoming vegan is the best thing I have ever done, yet for some reason people’s reactions to my choice aren’t always positive. I have had so many people telling me, you’ll get sick and you can’t live without meat, well last time I checked I wasn’t dead! I have way more energy being vegan than I ever did before. I do circuit training three times a week and have joined the MVS boys to do strength training once a week. It’s fantastic seeing the look of suprise on people’s faces when I tell them how much I can bench, squat and deadlift… here’s a girl who is apparently meant to be so sickly from lack of iron, who can bench more than some guys!
