:oops:

I know, I don't belong here. But I just recently came across this board and people here are way more mature than the other bodybuilding board. I know for a fact this board will help me more with the information that I seek. Anyways, just wanted to say HI! And...if it helps I plan on only eating seafood when it comes to meat.

Yeah, I don't disagree. I need to do more research on if I should drop off the seafood too.

I use flax and vegan DHA for the omega 3's. For protein I use pea protein. You don't need fish 8)

hey aurovon,


Welcome to this board. While many here are compassionate and passionate vegans that will tell it like it is without sugarcoating the meat issue, :evil: we are, in my opinion, still very respectful to all and welcome anybody that chooses to genuinely partipate. :D 8) There are lots of people who first came here eating the standard American diet, or as vegetarian, pescatarian, basically non-vegan. So please dont feel "shunned" here at all.

Just dont be posting any marine creature recipes or ask for any!

I hope this board informs, inspires, educates, and raises awareness. You will find discussion that is informative, inspiring, thought-provoking, as well as funny, frivolous and sometimes just down right ridiculous, very light-hearted and silly.

And then you will find people that think having a 6 pack no matter what they eat is a "curse." His name would be Jonathan.

I have met some of my most favourite people in the world on this very board.

In other words, the perfect balance. 8)

I hope you like it here. :D

P.S. WARNING: Robert Cheeke can inspire veganism EVEN FROM A HUNGRY TIGER!!!!!! Trust me I speak from experience :wink: :D

Thanks for the welcome. I was actually reading an old thread on this site called "Why fish?" which has good information on why NOT to eat it. It makes sense, without a doubt. I hope to do more research on what kind of vegetarian diet I can intake to change my lifestyle. It can be my New Years resolution :lol:

There's this vegan chinese place downtown, in the bathroom someone wrote "fish are friends not food". I thought it was sweet.

Welcome aboard.

so true, they are. I have seen fish that are like dogs. For example, when there "owners" came home from work, they would swim up to the side of the tank closest to the door and stay there, as if to greet. I think pet fish, especially with no other fish adn in small tanks, is horribly cruel. Fish get bored too, swimming endlessly in circles in a small tank. :cry:

Did you know, for example, that lobsters are very loyal mates and usually stick to one mate for life!!!! THAT IS AMAZING!! :D How many humans can you say the same of? Not many, unfortunately.

I can go on with fish facts and stories that would raise your consciousness of these amazing marine life forms, and generate respect for them. The bottom line for me, though, is not that creature is loyal, or smart of whatever. The point for me is that I dont need to kill a fish (or support its killing) to eat, so I choose compassion/life/mercy over taking another living things life, merely to please my tastebuds. :D


anyways, sorry to have gone on but I wanted to respond to what Aaron said about fish being friends, not food. SO TRUE! :D

P.S. When will I ever find my lobster? :( :wink:

Ha that lawyer bit is funny. I almost missed it.
Welcome!
I think you've seen enough rheteric for the moment, so I'll leave it at hello and nice to meet you :D

(edited because I remembered how to spell rhetoric and didn't want to look dumb :) )
