I am so happy for him! Plant based since 7/2019 and loving every day💚 Reply vegaNora says: February 10, 2020 at 7:57 pm Fantastic work, man! I’m one of those reformed carnivores who lived a very active & athletic life until “the rest of life happened” & my ever-present inner vegan was (temporarily)silenced. So, here we are, age 46 & I’ve finally parsed all my values, convictions & commitments, etc & (so far…) I’m down 31 pounds. Took the scenic route, but got there despite it all. Not even one year in, I’ve surpassed my weight-loss goals. Once, I was afraid to walk around the block, but learned the other day that it’s finally (!!!) easier to be more active & feel more motivated during the spring & summer months. All this goes hand-in-hand w just being more comfortable in my own skin, despite all “the extra” there will be after such a dramatic weight-loss transformation…oh well! I’m looking forward to more “vegan gains” in the form of weight loss, much-lower cholesterol numbers, as well as continuing to experience all the positive effects I feel so far—my knees & feet no longer hurt when I wake up, & perhaps my chronic back pain (although due to a serious injury), may alleviate somewhat. To everyone who’s ever felt any positive shifts in their health by going whole-food vegan—keep on rockin! I’m inspired by these successes bc I know that I can & will achieve a better quality of life by choosing vegan life, as well. ☮️❤️ 🌱 Plus, there are these really random & cool moments that happen just while running errands, like the cashiers who thank you for bringing reusable bags & containers to the grocery store; or anyone who’s bold enough to be openly curious about the tofu you’re buying… I swear I’ve recommended so many YouTube channels to ppl who aren’t afraid to show their curiosity about how & why tofu or tempeh are the best-ever quick dinner ideas. I’m always giving out recipes for stuffed baked sweet potatoes, tofu scrambles, sauce ideas…I mean, dayum—it’s so rewarding when someone shows genuine & respectful interest in that combo of items they’re scanning or bagging! It makes me so happy to tell the lady at Target (cheapest tofu where I live) about the benefits of freezing tofu, or why I’m the only person to whom she’s ever sold tahini… Always been an early bird, but only recently I’ve been doing early-morning cooking & meal prep. The neighbors in my building never interact, but the other day, one guy asked what I was making bc it “triggered his biscuits n gravy obsession.” 😳 When I told him about the tofu/chickpea curry, & the mushroom-gravy stuffed spuds I’d prepped, he was kinda surprised but still interested. Personally, the phrase “Vegan Gains,” is defined by any moment we plant-based eaters & vegan lifers capture anyone’s positive curiosity. That’s what I felt way back when I “met my first vegan…” lol, we were fairly instant friends & I’ve been asking myself “WWND” for 20 years—or whenever I’m faced w an “I’m vegan at any random restaurant” situation. Dude, I never meant for this to be soooo looong… is it like, “for every calorie burned, a paragraph gets added to a social-media comment?” Idk… rock on tho. 👍🏼 (Typo edit, after all… 🤣) Reply Calm says: February 10, 2020 at 8:01 pm I think there is even more Protein in Plant based Food then in Meat .. And its healthy too Reply Mr M says: February 10, 2020 at 8:06 pm Good start on your weight loss journey, still overweight though so keep grindin, you'll get there. Reply Matt Hazard says: February 10, 2020 at 8:11 pm Alright I have to be brutally honest here. For someone who has been in rhe gym "all his life", the guy is far from being ripped.The progress he made so far is remarkable though. Thanks for sharing.

Reply Steve Schudin says: February 10, 2020 at 9:01 pm I was also deeply impressed with Game Changers. I have been Vegan for the past month except for one meal (in a hospital cafeteria, ironically).

Reply Stephan Burse says: February 11, 2020 at 12:05 am I was a pescatarian for three years before 1/2/2020 and decided to give veganism a try. I also watched The Game Changers but have toyed with the idea even before that. I started feeling great a week after I started (at first my energy level was super low but I figured out it was because I wasn’t eating enough lol). At the beginning of February I decided to weigh myself though I said I would and saw that I lost 10 pounds! I decided to give veganism a try for better health and not necessarily for weight loss and I feel that I’ve gained both! What I initially said I was only doing for the month of January I now have plans of continuing.

My dad switched to a plant based diet when his dr told him he needed meds for high blood pressure and cholesterol and he was able to reverse that diagnosis within 3 months. He never took the meds just changed it with diet! Reply V says: February 11, 2020 at 4:05 pm Vegan for 2.5 years and at the age of 30 I'm in the best physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional state of my entire life! Blood work is perfect and I've cured all of my physical ailments! Reply Jennifer McCall says: February 11, 2020 at 4:35 pm Great video! I also switched to a vegan/whole foods diet after watching Game Changers. Seeing how the athletes could perform and train with a vegan diet really inspired me. I had that old mind-set of if I was on a vegan diet I would not get the protein or energy I needed for my hard workouts and cycle training. I was soooo wrong. Now I have been vegan for 5 weeks and feel amazing!! It's not as hard as I thought it'd be and I've lost almost 10 lbs!! Reply Vegan 4 Love & Life says: February 11, 2020 at 4:49 pm Thank you for sharing your story!! It's very inspiring!! 200th comment!! Reply Katarina Browne says: February 11, 2020 at 6:06 pm Maybe for men is like that, that you can eat all day long and not put on weight…. I'm plant based vegan and I do need to take care how much I eat and not in the evening to maintain my wish weight. I'm also not eating rice and not often patato….

Reply Wife Of Khan says: February 12, 2020 at 5:45 am Wow! That before pic looks like an uncle. He looks 15 year younger in the after photo! Reply Nick Ger says: February 12, 2020 at 6:57 am from dad bod to douche lul 😂 Reply Jeremy Leal says: February 12, 2020 at 7:26 pm Vegan, non vegan you can build muscle and or lose fat. It’s not because this guy went vegan that he lost more weight it’s because he maintained a calorie defect over time. He could have stayed keto, ate balanced and or went vegan. Secondly the game changers movie is mostly hype. You take a handful of elite athletes who happen to be vegan and talk about how they operate at an elite level. I’m sorry that cyclist that claims going vegan boosted her leg press to 600 lbs from like 400 at 60 reps. Give me a break there is a hell of a lot more to that then going vegan. What about the 1000s of elite athletes that are not vegan 😑😑. I personally think it’s awesome to eat healthy, try to be balanced, eat your plants and get exercise but this overhyped nonsense about it being a cure all is a big turn off. Especially for those who don’t know anything about nutrition. They watch a movie like the game changers and think their health/fitness is going to evolve overnight. It really grinds my gears lol that they leave out the gear that the IFBB and strong man athletes take like they all got/look that way because they are vegan. Be smart, eat balanced, get exercise and you will feel good and look good! there is no magic label for that! Reply Thijs Smudde says: February 12, 2020 at 8:43 pm I want to see this guy in 12 months visit his old friends. People won't recognize him.

Reply jaghad says: February 13, 2020 at 6:09 pm Lol. Poor sap! Propaganda movie, and this guy falls for it. Amazed that you couldn't eat normal portion sizes before. I bet you never had vegatables to your meat or low fat dairy products or oatmeal or fruits etc. It's has absolutely nothing to do with you eating animal products or not. You just ate crappy food. Highly processed foods, pieces of meat with lots of fat, french fries dripping with oil and so on and so forth. Going vegan for ethical purposes I applaud. Talking about health is nonsense. Besides, you probably lost a large amount of mucsles. Hilarious. Reply tru tube says: February 13, 2020 at 6:16 pm 0:35 LEWIS HANMILTON!! NICE Reply Landon Barretto says: February 13, 2020 at 6:54 pm Good for you. I did the same thing – I never even think of meat. Reply Chris Has The Spins says: February 13, 2020 at 7:35 pm Awesome story! I myself have been vegan about 6 weeks now since watching the documentary and have no intentions of going back to a meat and dairy based diet (after 30+ years of that kind of diet). I think what isn't mentioned enough is the fact that A) a lot of the popular plant based meat substitutes you get in the store are very high in saturated fat – however there are brands out there that aren't i.e. LightLife is great, you just have to read the labels…..and B) you don't have to just eat "fruits and vegetables" – I am still eating big delicious meals like burgers, tacos, meatloaf etc, obviously just with plant based meat. I don't feel uncomfortably stuffed and lethargic after meals – it's fantastic! Reply Jeannine says: February 13, 2020 at 9:04 pm ur saying an overweight vegan needs exercise. thanks Reply Fredrick Williams says: February 13, 2020 at 11:57 pm I have never been more motivated to go vegan. I know the feeling of eating meat and dairy, let alone junk food majority of my life and now that I'm 32 years old and learning more and more about the real power of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes than ever before because that's where you really get all of your nutrients and minerals from. and your body absorbs them more than meat and dairy. Dan, I congratulate you on your success and wish you nothing but the best.
