Hello all!

#1 Postby hoppimike » Tue Nov 22, 2011 4:52 pm

Hey hey :)

I'm just a normal mid-20s guy who recently went raw vegan (or at least mostly) with the intention of curing myself of Candida (along with some supps). In doing all this, I learned about the vegan and raw vegan bodybuilding movements and I really want to be healthier and stronger, so I thought I'd get stuck in and get some meat on these bones!

I'm also sure it's a great place to discuss male health and nutrition on a vegan / raw vegan diet!

So yeah.. hi guys and I look forward to getting stuck into the forums!


Mike :)


-- oh, ps, I found out about the site via the interview with Robert on Raw Vegan Radio. Seems like an awesome guy and the site sounded cool! :)

welcome! Just started up going vegan as well. Truly love the change its been for me in my life and I love proving people wrong about bodybuilding and being vegan/vegetarian, it can be done and strength can be built as well. Have you tarted training yet?
Bench: 230 for 5 reps
Squat: 325 for 5 reps
Dead Lift: 340 for 4

Hiya, Mike

It's gonna be fun watchin' you get balanced, get strong, and--sweet!--get ripped. Even if you don't post pics, take measurements of yourself and file it away somewhere. Take the numbers out every other month once you feel yourself building and have fun seeing how far you've come. Gonna be a good journey. Welcome.

Suggested stats: Chest, bicep flexed at right angle, forearm, waist, thigh, calf, body weight.

Erm, well I might be a bit bumpy to start with as most of my dietary focus is aimed at Candida cleansing as opposed to gaining muscle or toning my body. So I might just get to know people and learn steadily in the mean time :)

When Candida is gone and my health is resumed, this will be my next goal!

Darn thing! :)

It's temporary, Mike, and it's already on it's way out. You're doing great!

Thanks Robert! Yeah the interview was great. I realized recently, that as well as using vegan and raw food to heal me of my current health problem, I also want to use it to strengthen my body, look nice and be the healthiest I can be! :)

and thanks again Baby Herc, I do definitely feel like I'm making progress. It's been a long journey and a lot to learn... but it's been worth it!!
