Hi I am Thabo a vegan athlete, Welcome to my Vegan weight site. I am happy to have you here. I have been a vegan for 8 years and I have benefited a lot from the Vegan diet.
One of the ways I benefited was losing a lot of weight which became a blessing in disguise because it made me get interested in finding ways of how the body loses weight.
I have always had a huge passion for food but my change to a vegan diet occurred in my early 20s where I wanted to help my mom lose weight after finding out how easily I lost weight.
The reason I moved to a vegan diet was because of an illness that I had when I was 20 years old which was life-threatening called clogged heart arteries.
Basically what happened was that throughout my life up until 20 years old I use to eat lots of meat, fats and sweets.
I paid less attention to vegetables as I believed that my fitness would take care of my health. At the time I also had no proper guidance of nutrition at home.
Over the years this caused my heart arteries to clog up with cholesterol and this was my worst experience I tell you.
What mad it worse was that I started getting a lot of chest pains whenever I ate food.
My father and I went from one doctor to the next trying to get help from this condition but all the doctors could not help us because they saw nothing wrong with me as they said I was very fit.
A friend of mine,who was also an athlete, who was facing the same experience as me was also told the same thing by the doctors (They couldn’t see anything and said he was healthy).
On one weekend he went to perform at a sport event (dance competition) and he had a heart attack ( I know right, Imagine how I was feeling).
Luckily enough he survived this ordeal and surprisingly only then did the doctors admit it was clogged heart arteries (I know this was a bit late to discover).
It was at this moment that I knew that I had to drastically change my diet or else I would also have a heart attack.
This is when I embarked on the vegan diet and to be honest it was trial and error when I started because no one around me knew how to follow this diet.
I started reading magazines and information for unclogging heart arteries and most information was leading to a vegan diet and to my surprise the chest pains started to disappear.
What is more I even started loosing huge amount of weight as I followed this plant based diet (vegan diet).
This intrigued my interest of understanding how the body actually loses weight as most people I saw use to stuggle.
From this vegan diet I started having high amounts of energy when I was doing my sport and I felt lighter than all my competitors.
Below is a video of my story
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
What sparked my need to guide people on the vegan diet was the trend and request I got from other young and old athletes (dancers) who said they were having something similar of getting chest pains.
This was when I knew that there are some many people out there who can benefit from this diet and my new way of living.
I also thought what if I could also be of help to people who are also struggling to lose weight since I was using a diet which made me loose so much way.
I Want to help people learn how this diet works and also how their body works for losing weight and how they can use it with proper information so as to be nutritious and help loose weight with a proper vegan diet and more.
Most people were also asking me how I lost weight with this diet so I aim to help people with this too.
I will be providing all the research that I do on a daily basis since I also run a dancing club which helps athletes get fit and be able to control their weight.
My dance club is TTDANCESPORT.COM and that is what I have been running from 2016 until now.
