How did you hear about the VFM Program and Crissi Carvalho?

I heard about Crissi through Instagram and Youtube when researching individuals in the Vegan bodybuilding scene!

How did you feel before your VFM program? Were you happy with yourself? Did you feel healthy?

Unhappy with my body, unconfident and wanting to make a change. I felt “healthy”, but not where I wanted my body to be.

Were you vegan before starting your VFM program?


What were your goals when signing up to your program? Did you achieve those goals?

Lose weight and change my overall physique. That quickly changed to wanting to begin competing! I successfully achieved both of those goals and it pushed me to want to continue to get more serious in competing.

How quickly/slowly did you start seeing results?

Pretty much immediately!

Are you now closer to your goals? How has Crissi helped you to achieve those goals?


Has your VFM program changed your life? How? What about your family and friends lives?

VFM changed my life by showing how easily it is to be strong, confident and a true athlete as a vegan. We can radiate health and happiness through our actions on this lifestyle and this gave me the confidence to continue to pursue that.

List three key points you have learned from your VFM program.

  1. Health first. Always. 
  2. Listen to your body!
  3. Keep it simple. 

Will you continue to follow the VFM lifestyle now that your program has ended?

I have kept with the lifestyle since my program ended, adapting many of to principals to how I work with my new coaches. Vegan for life baby!

Have other people noticed changes in you? Have you inspired them?

1000% yes yes yes!!! I sure hope I’ve inspired others by my sharing my journey.

Did/are you enjoy/ing the program?


Would you recommended it to friends and family?

Absolutely! Especially for those new to the lifestyle. I feel Crissi is amazing with individuals transitioning and gives plenty of options.

Have you set any new goals for the future?

Yes! Planned my 2018 competition season.

Please tell us anything else you LOVED about your VFM Program!

Can hardly express with words what the friendships I have built through VFM mean to me. I met someone who I now consider to be one of my closest friends and have countless others who I communicate with regularly. It’s truly so special and amazing to have so many others to relate to when I don’t have too many people in my day-to-day life that understand.
