    Chef Alyssa Gorelick, 29, who once was the chef at Charlotte's first vegetarian and vegan restaurant, made a change in her life: She returned to eating meat. Why did she do it and how has it effected her life? At least part of her motivation to becoming a meat-eater again is the strenuous interval work out program she follows at Madabolic, Inc. Along with the rest of the exercise class Alyssa moved every three minutes from punching a heavy bag, to using a 5lb jump rope, and various exercises using weights.
