About My Story

Hey there,

My name is Jason, and I hope you're having a great day.

A couple of years ago I first encountered the concept of a vegan diet, and I have to admit it felt very foreign to me.

I mean all my life I had been told I was dependent on animal products for my survival and for optimal health... especially for building muscle.

Now...

Due to a couple unfortunate reasons I had been struggling with ill health for more than a year which made walking up a set of stairs immensely challenging and working out quite impossible.

This meant most of my time was spent in lying position and passing the time with Netflix and ice-cream.

I had grown weak, skinny and was pretty depressed about my situation.

My ​several doctors' appointments lead nowhere - so I ​figured I would have to take the matter into my own hands.

Remembering having read something about the health benefits of a vegan diet I started researching the matter.

As the ethical argument also seemed really compelling I thought 'What the hell it can't get any worse' and decided to give it a go.

Fast forward to the present, more than two years now, and I can say that this decision has been absolutely life-changing for me.

I simply feel great (not only physically but also because I know I'm not contributing to unnecessary pain, suffering and death).

Now this website of mine, Vegan Liftz, was conceived out of scratching my own itch.

After I had gone vegan I was searching around for science-backed information on how to fuel my body with a plant-based diet, lift weights, look better naked, become healthier...

...and quickly it became apparent that there was no such resource online. 

As this was something that I needed, and seeing as others were probably in a similiar situation, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

My mission here is to:

I'm also thrilled that tofu scramble entered into my life.

  • check
    Cut through the bullshit, lies and quasi-science that permeates the fitness industry (and also some vegan groups online).
  • check
    Provide you with the best possible evidence-based and actionable advice so that you can start making those vegan muscle and strength gains and optimize your health.
  • check
    Finally, I would like to prove that it is indeed possible to build a great physique on a vegan diet.

That you need animal products for making gains or to be healthy is nonsense.

The reality is that tons of people have built amazing physiques on a vegan diet, and so can you (with the right information regarding diet, training and recovery).

With my sub-par genetics I've managed to put on roughly 24 pounds of vegan muscle, and I plan to put on many more.
