How + Why I went VEGAN | 30 pound weight loss + Tips for New Vegans

How and why I went vegan! Plus before and after pictures from my 30 lbs with loss (I’m 5’9″ for those wondering why I don’t quite look 30 pounds heavier in the before. I’m tall so when I gain weight, it’s more evenly distributed but trust me, at the start of summer 2015 I weighted 168 and by the time I moved back to LA in October 2015 I weighed 138. I weigh bit more now, about 145 which is a healthy weight for my height…but more about that in tomorrow’s video :)) So in this video I talk about losing the weight, why I went vegan, how I did it, and I share some tips for new vegans or anyone curious about trying a vegan diet.

I hope you find it helpful and realize that ANYONE can be vegan. I was soooo not a “typically vegan”type….I liked vegetables, but then again I liked all food! I could not imagine this would be a path I chose but it’s honestly one of the best things I’ve ever done 🙂

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments! See you tomorrow!!
