From Cancer Scare to Vegan Fitness Model At 40+!


When someone has a health scare, like a possible
cancer diagnoses, it usually results in a vow to change habits, eat healthier, start
exercising, and more. However, few follow through on such a change of heart and even
fewer do what my guest today did: go from a full-blown cheese-loving omnivore to a vegan
fitness model, all after the age of 40. Hi it’s Emily from Bite Size Vegan and welcome
to another vegan nugget. Today I’m excited to introduce you to Crissi Carvalho, better
known as the vegan fitness model. Crissi has been in the fitness industry since the tender age
of 16, and while most people seem to peak young and start the downhill trend towards
middle age, Crissi has gone against the grain and is the fittest, and healthiest she’s
ever been at 42! Just take a look at this mother of two. Now let’s hear from Crissi about her journey
to vibrant vegan health. Well Crissi, I want to thank you so
much for taking time out of your busy schedule to be on the channel and help share your experience. Thank you. It’s my pleasure to be
here speaking with you. Great! So, to start off to give people
kind of an idea of your own story, can you tell us when and why you went vegan? Back in around and about 2012 is when
I started…experimenting with the vegan diet. So, more of a plant-based diet. However my
journey to that started a lot before that. Mainly from having a few health conditions.
I had a bit of a cancer scare and my best friend also. We were all around about 36-37
at that stage, so very young. So, having problems with our health and being somebody that’s
started in the fitness industry from the age of 16, I found it…well, why is this happening?
So, I started self studying and that led to studying nutritional medicine and how foods
can actually heal our bodies. So, I started the chemical route. I took out chemicals,
preservatives, additives – try to stick to more of whole food. I wasn’t vegan at that
stage. 2000…from 2012 to 2013 I started doing things like fasting, detoxification methods.
So, that…the more and more I learned about the way we’re meant to eat is the more that
led me to veganism. It was a bit of resistance on my side because born in Germany – I’m
European. I loved cheese and I wasn’t a very big meat eater so that was not a problem at
all. And so yeah, so gradually that led me over to become a vegan. And the more I learned
about veganism the more I realized it was exactly who I was. Definitely an animal lover,
and it was really weird for me at, what was I… …39, and I never made a connection that
beef is cow, and bacon is pig – things like that, which so many people are like that now
you know. And it’s not until you put that out there that they have the ‘Ah Ha!’
moments, and I really feel that that’s…we need to be a bit gentle with people. In that
respect is showing them the connection. And now I’m an ethical vegan. It probably only took
me about a year of transitioning and that’s what’s kept me vegan. It’s so easy once
you reach your own personal health goals as a plant-based…on a plant-based diet. To
easily to go back and have little dibbles and dabbles of cheese here, or milk there,
or cake here. But when you head over to the ethical side you don’t even want to partake
in that, and that’s exactly what I become. That wasn’t the original…original purpose
of me going vegan but wow, it’s forever now. So, can you tell us a little of your
journey into becoming a fitness model, how did that happen? Again, around about the same time,
it was such a big shift in my world. I had lost my…I started in the fitness industry
at around 16 till about 30 and then I became an interior designer. And then from there
I…the big world global financial crisis. I lost my job and I had to really look at
what I was gonna be. You know 30..again, coming into 36, 37, 38 I was starting again and health…I
had no problems at that time as I just discussed. And so I, actually decided to go back into
the health industry and the fitness industry. So, I really started on my certifications,
studied the plant-based nutrition. And to launch back into my career, and to prove to
myself that as a newly vegan, I could be as fit and strong as all my peers, I decided
to do a competition which was just last year 2014. So, I had around only 8 weeks to prepare for
the competition and with all my 13 years…14 years previously in the fitness industry,
I just molded my new plant-based nutrition, and my old fitness, so called health new knowledge
to get out. Before I knew it I have been now…now competing for just over a year and in that
time I’ve done around about 8 competitions, 14 stage shows, and out of those 14 I placed
all one in around about 12 of them, and some in the masters category, and it’s been amazing.
People have been so inspired by someone that is vegan that can achieve these results in
such a short time, but also someone at my age. And I think I’ve pretty much proven,
not just to myself but to so many, that we don’t need meat protein to build muscles. And because
I’ve competed once before…twice before in my 20’s I definitely think this is a
better way, a faster way, a more nourishing way to build muscle, and to stay fit. Yeah,
it’s been an amazing journey so. Well, thank you so much again for your
time. I really appreciate you because I know that you have a lot of clients, and a lot
of stuff going on, so thank you so much for taking the time to be on the channel. Thanks so much. I hope you enjoyed hearing from Crissi about
her journey back to health and making that connection to the deeper ethical side of veganism.
Now bringing it back to the surface, I’ve had the privilege of seeing the inner workings
of Crissi’s fitness coaching programs and she’s been an important part of my own journey
back to fitness, part of my dream team, if you will, with Derek Tresize from last week’s video
and Robert Cheeke’s new book “Shred It.” And here’s a little peak into my progress. So check out Crissi’s services if you want

  1. wow! how inspiring!!! thanks for this very interesting interview! Amazing how vegans are present in the fitness industry, didnt know that.

  2. Go Aussie vegans! I'm living in the UK and a newbie vegan but so great to see Chrissi on your channel. She's an inspiration and so are you. Like Chrissi, I started this for health reasons, but it took only a few days of watching vegan videos on YouTube before the ethical and environmental issues gained equal importance. 👏🏼

  3. @Bite Size Vegan Crissi has some wicked hair! 😛
    And you're looking fit as f*ck Emily! Keep up the amazing work girl! xo

  4. I'm a new Vegan,
    and i want to get fit. I walk 6 to 7 miles 5 days a week, but im not sure if that's enough.

  5. Amazed by how young she looks! 😮
    Superb video and it was so inspiring to hear from Crissi. Absolutely loved that part she mentioned "when you meet your health-goals on a plantbased diet it's easy to start dipping back into cheese, etc. if you're not into the ethical side of it" because it's so true and this happens to so many people when they only know about veganism as a diet.
    AND BY THE WAY: your progress is INCREDIBLE!

  6. wow, awesome video!!! I love Crissi, been following her on IG for a while, she is rad!! I wish she had a YT channel (hint hint).

    Thank you for this interview, you guys both rock.

    ps. you really do have a dream team…dang amazing progress Emily! <3

  7. Love Crissi!

  8. Woah Emily, looking good! 
    Brilliant video. 🙂

  9. Crissi is a great lady it is people like her and yourself Emily who should be role models for young women. Also you got some serious gains going on and in quick time too.Amazing achievement

  10. Are her kids vegan?

  11. She still look great at her age, sorry i have hard time understanding her accent, British? I've been 90% time vegan for 30 year now, when everyone around me in my hood, old hood, aquaintants or my family and friends either dead, dying from cancer n diseases, old, wringles, limpy, lumpy, age spot, slow, fugly, weak, big belly, fat, sick, tire or too old n fugly for their age 30s. Just check my profile vids of youtube, trinhcuong1964 to witness yourself at age 55 year young so speak, still strong, sweat, sensational, solf, smooth, sensual, sassy, fast, alert n fresh nice smell young looking skin tone even i growed up in war torn country of Vietnam n eat lot dairy at age 20s due faulse dairy ads, may be we should have class action lawsuit at dairy industry which have caused lot sickness in USA n world.

  12. Omg you're almost at 50000!!!

  13. Amazing thanks!

  14. OT:  Love how your tank top extends the forms and colors of your body art–wonderful!  Thanks for posting this interview; to say Crissi Caravalho is inspiring is to make a gross understatement!  And the gains you have made in a short time are mind boggling.  Well done!  I am pushing 43 and feel that things are only easier, and going to get better for me fitness-wise, as I proceed in this lifestyle.  Staying healthy on a plant-based diet is kinda a no brainer : )

  15. great interview and very inspiring!

  16. She's an aussie!I thought as much when i heard her speak 🙂

  17. I love this! When I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and Depression I did research and decided to try veganism. Your videos have been a huge help since I also weight train and have always been taught about needing meat to gain muscle. I've only been vegan for a month now but I'm feeling amazing, have zero cravings for any animal based products, and am finally starting to lose some of the weight that my body was holding onto thanks to my disease.
    I love your videos! Thank you so much for all you do.

  18. wow, now we all want to know how you made this awesome gains in 3 months only???

  19. Emily, you're looking fantastic! Like, wow! anyways, I was wondering if you could help me out with my situation (or make a video since Halloween is coming soon). Basically, I'm in 9th grade, but I'm really short and look really young so I want to trick or treat again! Its fun for me. However, I just became vegan this year and I don't know how I'm going to do it. Every time someone hands me a non vegan candy, do I tell them I don't want it ? If I trade with my friends the product will have been eaten anyways, so ethically it doesn't change anything. Should I just give it up completely this year? Anyways thanks Emily! I know it's kind of early but I'm obsessed with Halloween. Last year I would have already picked my costume out!

  20. CUTE TANKTOP Em!

  21. Holy crap your progress is insane! Go work! @Bite Size Vegan

  22. Emily, your body is looking amazing!! Please share what you've been doing the last two months to get so ripped! Thanks 🙂 x

  23. Could you please, please, pretty please, get Scott Jurek to be on an interview? For me, he's a lot more interesting than a fitness model, because he's an ultra-endurance athlete (which is the kind of event I like to do), and he's been vegan for a much longer time.

  24. In the video at 2:25 to 2:26 she said detoxification methods, not sure why that was put as question marks in the closed captions.

  25. You're both beautiful & full of life it's lovely to see I really love your channel Emily! Also your cheek bones are friggen amazing! Keep up the good work! xxx

  26. Crissi looks amazing! And look at that body of yours too, Emily! Yay for living long healthy lifes 🙂

  27. Emily why are you blinking so much, it hurts my eyes xD

  28. Wtf. You look awsome.

  29. @7:15 mmmmmm grrrrrrrrrr yum yum . atb tx

  30. Another great video 🙂 
    If you dont mind me asking, what do you use to edit your videos in your interviews? I am trying to figure out how to display both people on the skype call in the video like you do. Thank you !

  31. Crissi is the vegan (and better) version of Stephanie Keto Person, without the greassy pans and oily plates(not to mention, without the cruelty to animals). When will they learn?

  32. 50K!!!!!!

    "Celebrate good times, COME ON!!!"

    awkward dance moves ^_^

  33. What an amazing lady and role model!!! Thanks for sharing Emily 🙂

  34. Hey, the bunny tattoo changed sides… 😛

  35. I'm 44 and it wasn't a health scare quite yet, but impending doom of the "family curse.". My Father died 7 years ago from a heart attack and had his first amputation due to diabetes and peripheral neuropothy at about 60 years old. My 6 yr old daughter has muscular dystrophy and my wife has MS. I also have a 10 year old daughter and have decided I not only need to be around longer, but functional longer as well so I can take care of my girls… I figured out I have about 16 years until I am the same age as my father was when he had his first amputation. That was my main motivation to get healthy. I started juicing after watching Fat Sick & Nearly Dead, lost 55 pounds on a 90 day juice fast. I was afraid to stop juicing until I had a solid "after plan." I had watched Forks over Knives during the juice fast and decided that was it. I have kept the weight off and I feel great. Great video and thank you for such a balanced approach to promoting the vegan lifestyle… it makes more and more sense to me the longer I go.

  36. Wow your transformation! Was that over a year? Or just a couple of months?!

  37. I think this woman seems like a great role model for people of any age. also, her hair is awesome. also, I like the setup of this video chat (side by side) compared to your other ones. it makes it seem like you're next to each other kind of

  38. Beatiful example!

  39. What do you say to those people who say that with out slaughterhouses,dairy and meat industries there would be less jobs and more people begging on the streets?

  40. Holy shit! You're rrrrrriiiipped!!! Respect!

  41. Thank you Emily +Bite Size Vegan Inspiring, both of you!

    Sharing some of my story, I turned vegetarian in 1977 (9 years old) after a ruptured appendix left me with blood poisoning. I was told by medical staff that it was a close run thing and had been given just 24 hours to live. Having had the operation and making a full recovery, I continued to persue the vegetarian lifestyle. It was also during the late 1970s that my doctor (a skin specialist) advised me that my bad eczema was likely to be caused by dairy products, so I was advised to try the available alternatives at the time (goat's milk) with mixed results.
    I would still have dairy products from time to time, and I would just put up with the pain and itchy skin thinking there was no other alternatives. Looking back now I realised how ridiculous this was!
    Fast forward to 2003/4 when my Mum was diagnosed with colon cancer, (she too was a vegetarian) and, even after two operations to remove parts of her colon, and various treatments (conventional and alternative), eventually died in July 2004 shortly after her 61st Birthday.
    From then onwards I began to look into food and how it affects the body. There was some flirtation with macrobiotics, gluten free and dairy free diets, eventually leading me to look for real alternatives to dairy, eggs and the like.
    In 2013 I embarked on a diet rich in nuts, fruit and grains and vegan fats. This led to me feeling tired, lethargic and just added to my depression, also gaining nearly 10 pounds in weight. Having had a history of anxiety depression, this was not at all helpful! So off the meds, and onto a HCLF fruit/plant based vegan lifestyle, investing time into research and reading up about other people's results, I am now feeling more energetic, (I always loved my racing bicycle!) and much more confident.
    Still learning and searching for new tips, hints and experiences that I can add to my life to improve myself, and to find answers to my questions about family inherited genetic predisposition to cancers etc.
    Thanks for sharing your lifestyle and journey Emily, and girl, you are looking lean and rrrriiipped! Inspiring, looking forward to your video on getting ripped, wanna look more lean myself, so most interested!

  43. Your stomach <3 please could you show us your routine?

  44. Hi Emily! I'm not sure how to start this, but I came across your videos for the first time a few months ago. I'd been vegetarian since the beginning of the year for health reasons. I'd seen a few of Freelee the Banana girl's videos, and honestly, her confrontational style of spreading the vegan message sort of turned me off of veganism. Until, that is, I found your channel. Your intelligent, genuine, and passionate way of speaking showed me a side of the vegan community that was all new to me. I confess that some of your videos on eggs and dairy proved hard to swallow for a vegetarian, but I eventually realized the almost ridiculously simple truth: by consuming any animal products at all, I was indirectly participating in obscene animal cruelty. Within the week, I became vegan.
    I write all of this to say, in short, that I am so grateful to you for everything that you and your channel do for veganism, and what they did for me. Thank you!

  45. @Bite Size Vegan You look amazing!!!! I am going to turn 40 and I look like I am in my 30s.  This video was perfect! I am planning on getting the fittest ever to defy stereotypes and be a living billboard for veganism, lol!!! Thank you for being part of my education journey of only a year and a half :)!!!!  You are amazing!

  57. Great video!

  58. 42!? wow haha, thats awesome (:

  59. awesome looking !

  60. Age and "thought" CAN inhibit health, but if you have the will you can accomplish ANYTHING! I had weight affected issues like 'bad knees" and degenerative discs in my back. But I have persevered with being a high-raw vegan for 5-years now and don't envision myself "turning-back". thanks for this vlog, Bite-Size!

  61. Look at your amazing body, Emily! When I saw that, I couldn't help but say "Holy F*ck!!!". You look INCREDIBLE! Amazing results!

  62. Well done Emily you got pretty ripped in only 2 months time.

  63. Another great video 🙂

  64. What an amazing transformation in such a short period of time! Would love a video on your fitness routine 🙂

  65. i thought our jaw line looked way sharper than before. only towards the end of the video did I see your progress. way to go.

    PS: put on a lil bit of weight. 🙂

  66. Thank you broccoli.

  67. I'm starting weight lifting and transitioning to veganism, hope i look as good as her

  68. You gals all rock! Thanks for your videos Emily!!
    Since Oct 7, the date I became vegan, (I was a vegetarian for almost 2 yrs), I've lost 7 lbs and didn't even try! I keep eating and eating, but yet lost weight! Vegan is the way to go, no question!!! I'm in my 50's and have always been active, …. but now I feel even more exuberant! Physically, I have a pretty demanding job, I have my own cleaning business and clean 30 hours/week! And have been doing this for 18 years, plus raising 2 children!
    We always ate a lot of vegys and fruit, but weren't vegan… my daughter has shown me the way, and I love it! As soon as she showed me all those documentaries, I changed instantly! (My son isn't vegan, but at least he has stopped eating chicken fingers and meat slices!!!) There wasn't even a question about it! I am an animal lover, and I will do what I can for them for the rest of my days!!!! Thx Emily, you're awesome!

  69. Great! Thanks for sharing her story

  70. Your transition is amazing! Could you do a what I eat in a day video (with macros and cals)?

  71. Wow! She looks sooooo young! Stunning!!!

  72. Wow! I hope I look that hot when I'm 40!

  73. wow she is awesome! and a beautiful hot mom!! As soon as she started talking tho I immediately thought of freelee the banana girl..lol
    they must both be from the same part of Australia. I like her accent

  74. oh wait! did she just say she was from Germany?!

  75. Emily, the captions have disappeared or have they ever been place ? Merci.

  76. I'm vegan and looking my best at age 38! This was an inspirational video. Thanks!!

  77. 42???????????

  78. Strewth mate, you sure she's German? Fair dinkum!

  79. Hi Emily. Thanks for all of your great videos! This video was very inspiring. As North American diets become more processed and carcinogenic I think age has become passe. This video is a brilliant illustration that diet determines longevity not chronological age numbers. I am a new vegan (10 weeks). It was much easier than I thought. I did for both health and Animal Rights. Going to check out your website.

  80. I was really really ill when I graduated high school. I had aching joints and my muscles would be achy and cramp up all the time and I was often really fatigued. I hated not having energy, and I knew I had to do something to cleanse my body. I had already stopped eating big animals, but I was still eating lots of chicken, fish and dairy. So then I cut out all meat and dairy and went on a raw vegan diet. I experienced a lot of cleansing and felt a lot better! I was singing the praises of the raw vegan diet to everyone I knew! I ate a lot of food, but then I sort of hit a wall and was starting to feel really fatigued again. I got sick of nuts and seeds being the only heavy foods I could eat and everything else being so watery or fibrous, I did a lot of things to my food to condense the nutrients but I still found it really hard to get full and satisfied without eating so many nuts and dried food that I felt sick. I could not get myself to feel as good as I did at first.

    I would crave cheese a lot and cooked foods. I ended up eating out a lot because I would not prepare myself even vegan cooked food at home, cuz I thought cooked food was bad for my health at the time, but I would allow myself to have cooked vegan food when I ate out, so that made me want to eat out really frequently because my body was craving beans, potatoes and I just could not say no to it, but I always felt so guilty about eating cooked vegan foods.

    Then I started buying raw cheese and I could not get enough of it. I put on a bit of fat right around my belly and got some health problems returning from eating the cheese, like runny nose and pimples, but I was so hungry and had a hard time controlling how much raw cheese I ate. I felt like I had to be raw because I had a really bad mean boyfriend at the time and he called me "tubby" a lot, even though I was not chubby. Then one day out of the blue he sat on my back and strangled me. I am still a bit injured from this now, but for a while it was a really bad injury.

     After leaving the toxic relationship, I gave up raw cheese and I finally decided to allow myself to eat cooked vegan food whatever whenever I wanted. I met a really supportive man, who is now my husband and he helped me to eat more cooked vegan foods and give up a lot of the fears I had about eating beans, bread, potatoes, and other vegan cooked foods. I actually had to stretch my stomach out because I was not getting enough food when I was raw. It hurt and also gaining weight back hurt, made me feel achy and sore all over. After a few months eating cooked vegan food I stopped feeling so achy and sore and I was in a lot more stable place mentally, when I was raw I had a mental fog a lot. I was able to think more clearly, and I had a lot more energy, and no more fatigue from not getting enough calories. I needed to do some cleansing because I could feel I had more toxicity in my body, but instead of fasting I did the Andreas Moritz liver cleanse and for that only one meal needs to be skipped and it really powerfully cleanses out the liver. I felt a lot better after that too, and it is so nice to experiance cleansing without being hungry for days.

     It has been about 4 years since I started eating a cooked vegan diet and I have been doing lots of physical therapy for my back and neck injury, it is healing up finally, it has taken a lot of time, patience and persistence and I am so glad that I am a vegan, because when my injury was really bad I was very sedentary and I know that being vegan has really saved my body from what people go through if they have to be sedentary on a standard American diet. I would have gained a lot of weight and it would have put pressure on my back and neck, and who knows where I would be with my healing process if I were not a vegan. I am not sedentary anymore, I do a lot now, thanks to healing up fast, and not putting on any pounds while being sedentary, that now I have been getting back into dance and my body is responding really well and I am getting my muscle tone back really fast. I am pregnant now, and I am going to raise him or her vegan and I am really excited to be a vegan mommy!

  81. WOW. I am 41, been through exactly what she has from interior design and working in the fitness industry EVEN having cervial cancer scare to endometriatis now so I am motivated and inspired by Chrissi. Thankyou Bite Size Vegan for your passion of sharingVegan health.

  82. …also 42 and fitter than ever! 😊

  83. In this video Crissi could easily pass for her 20's or at most early 30s.  I'm amazed that she's 42.  Encouraging!

  84. I have a feeling she went from vegetarian to vegan. Still the message is clear green energy is the best!

  85. Very encouraging video. I'm 61 and been an omnivore all my life. It's only in the last year that I've started to research the change to vegan. Your videos have helped a lot in helping me understand vegan is the way we were designed to eat. Getting ready to make the change in the days to come.

  86. I would love to get ripped like Crissy but the problem is I fear for unwanted attention. being cat called is one thing but have perverts following you is creepy.

  87. wow she looks amazing!

  88. Many things are similar. Me:
    Diagnosed Stage IV cancer 2011. (age 40)
    Let myself go a bit (up to 108kg)
    Started 5:2 Diet (age 42)
    Started Cycling (age 42.5).
    Lost 25 Kg at about a 1kg/week, down to about 83Kg. managed to keep the weight off by cycling
    Went vegan initially for health reasons (5 months ago).
    Then watched a lot of vids, and committed to staying vegan for the ethical reasons.

  94. My daughter came out for our wedding and asked my husband and me to eat everything she cooked for us for 2 weeks…little did we know she was cooking vegan meals, after the 2 weeks we were married and had In N Out food truck for our dinner. Needless to say we woke up the next morning feeling tired and groggy. Since then my husband has become a vegetarian and I'm Vegan thanks to my daughter.

  95. Have you changed your diet (meaning macros) with your new workout routine? You look freakin amazing…and she is so inspiring! I'm in my late 30s, so it was refreshing to see someone closer to my age doing this. She looks 25!!!!

  99. You are an awesome inspiration. My own diet going alkaline and now vegan is the best thing I’ve done. There is no going back. I have started this last year. And I’ve been vegan since last November. I am 48. Crisis and you are both inspirations!
