Hello from the Land of La La

#1 Postby SAW » Fri Apr 07, 2006 11:07 am

Hi all,

I broke the rules and posted a question before introducing myself. :oops:

Anyway, like many of you (I'm guessing), I discovered this site while searching for vegan fitness resources. I've been vegan for around three years and vegetarian for around nine. I've always been fit, but a little while ago I decided to start getting serious about eating a more complete diet and building muscle.

I don't believe in proselytizing to non-vegans about what animals go through, but I do believe that setting an example with a healthy physique is almost the responsibility of all vegans and can be far more powerful in terms of getting others to take a closer look at the lifestyle.

So I am determined to be living proof that vegans get enough protein :roll: and set an example for omnivores whose only other exposure to veganism may have been some guy at the health food store sporting Zombie Chic.

I know I will definitely learn a lot from all of you and hopefully you will learn a thing or two from me.

Best,
SAW

Welcome!

Don't worry, you didn't break any rules, I just "saw" your post yesterday and wanted to learn more about you and give you a proper welcome to our group.

Awesome that you are in L.A. Good to know, since I will be there in August along with a handful of people from the forum. I think we have nearly 10 members in or around L.A. so that should be great when our Vegan Vacation takes place in the city of Angels August 3-9th.

Thanks for the intro and we look forward to hearing more from you.

All the best and welcome aboard!

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.
