Welcome!

This is not the place to be if you want to continue eating meat. :(

People who come here have a strange habit of going vegan. :D

But I just recently came across this board and people here are way more mature than the other bodybuilding board.


So true! Looks like you have already gotten a warm welcome.

Welcome to our site!

Thanks for the comments. As I like to say, I think we have the friendliest and most welcoming vegan forum. We have all types of people from all over the world and somehow we end up becoming good friends, hanging out together in person, or plan to travel in the future to meet up in person.

We have lots of people who are very informed on vegan issues and those who are inspiring and motivating. (Thanks Natalie for the comments and thanks Kourtney as well).

I live with 2 other vegans and it's great. Topher and I visited with a bunch of kids today and he passed out a flyer for Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness to them :)

As Michael Hobson said, people who hang out here do have a tendency to go vegan :P

Welcome to the Vegan Fitness Team!

Welcome!

That's awesome that you've cut out beef, pork, and chicken!!! I bet you'll find that eating a plant-based diet is easier (and better tasting) than you'd expect.

You dont want lobster-- your vegan :wink: . You mean you want to find a lobster (i.e. a loyal mate that will never leave you, just like lobsters are loyal and monogomous -- only to be boiled alive and thereby taken away from their life partners :cry: and for what? For somebody's few minutes of cullinary pleasure? :cry: no joke, this is all lobster fact ).

anyway, i hope you find your lobster soon Aaron, and she lives up to the standard set by these amazing creatures. :D

Welcome aurovon.
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Welcome aurovon, I'm sure the people on this forum will help you give up animal products. I've been a vegan since february and I was really surprised to see how easy it was to become one.
Things are moving forward

Nothing in this world that's worth having comes easy
