In Response To: Type O athletes/vegans (Andrea)
I naturally found my way out of the vegetarian maze even before I happened upon ER4YT. The last 4 years were macrobiotic and I was losing muscle mass after heavy work-outs. Eating meat was a gradual process and this diet helped to push me into areas I thought were impossible: I acutally have those illusive washboard abs now, and that's after 20+ years of heavy exercising and dieting. My bodyfat remains at 8% with really no effort whatsoever. Over the summer, I pushed a litle and got down to 6% and was really ripped.
I had a vegan friend visit for a week last month and in sympathy ate the same food he did. Even though I was very careful to stay away from the avoids, I really felt terrible by the end of the week: My energy levels weren't stable, I wasn't recovering from my workouts and I looked all bloated.
The lesson here is that my O body does best on meat protein sources. So if I feel good ( and look good) most of the time, why fight it?
