Welcome to the web site! I am new on here as well. I will tell you that the HCRV is the best way to not only loose weight but get truly healthy. I have been vegan for a while and jumped to the HCRV and have lost 20 LBS. and gained tones of energy! Just water to say welcome and I hope you see success with the HCLF vegan lifestyle. Best of luck and stick to your guns!
