Hi everyone, I have been a vegan for over year, and eat about 80% raw (can't give up cooked legumes just yet). I recently joined a Cross Fit gym and am in love with it. The only downside is the Paleo attitude of all the members. When the members meet me, they can't believe I am a vegan and are convinced that I won't last or progress in the workouts. They have mentioned that eventually I will eat meat again because I have to. Because Cross fit is mostly strength and power training, I want to prove them wrong. As a marathoner and triathlete, I found no issues with energy being a vegan. I'm just starting out in Cross fit so I don't have anything to compare to but I feel good so far. I'm just wondering if anyone has any insights on the paleo diet and will I improve and increase strength and power without falling victim to cooked meats. I really love the way I feel being a vegan, but I don't want to be fatigued. I want to prove all of the Paleo believers wrong if I can. They don't think getting ripped and fit is possible as a vegan. Any suggestions/insights?
