From Butcher to Vegan Body Builder: A Story of Transcendence
Fraser Bayley has an unusual story – having gone from being a mentally ill butcher to a passionate vegan advocate and bodybuilder. In a struggle to overcome serious mental illness (including bi-polar disorder, ADHD (a learning disability) and severe social anxiety), Fraser chose to walk away from the butchery industry for good. He never realized how health, fitness and Veganism would then come together as transform his life in many amazing ways. Today Fraser operates an online vegan health and fitness brand called Evolving Alpha with his wife Lauren, which helps other vegans and curious non-vegans get healthy, fit and strong via a range of plant based, vegan nutrition programs and coaching options.
“I remind people on a daily basis, to be the kind of vegan you would have wanted to meet – before you became vegan. When we can lead from that place, we can change lives and help so many animals in the process. Part of my health and fitness motivations within Veganism is to be a strong walking billboard for this beautiful lifestyle. Because so often once someone see’s that change is possible on the outside, they change on they change on the inside too. To help others transcend old beliefs and limitations and take part in this rapidly growing movement.”
Fraser will be sharing his unusual story about going from butcher to vegan. Why he made those changes, the struggles, the triumphs and the emotional journey that ensued. He will also discuss the best ways to get strong, healthy and fit as a vegan and how to share your vegan message in a way that reaching many and inspires people to take massive action to change their lives.
