I've been back in MA training for about 6 months now ...

Hard to compare my own pre-vegan energy/strength/endurance levels with my post-vegan levels as I have to take an additional 20 years of aging into account.

A 54 I seem to be a fair match with men 20+ years younger than myself and men my own age who are around 30% bigger than me, body size wise, though.

In terms of how my vegan diet has served me, long term, I'm not at all displeased.
