Hollaback!

#1 Postby Ravi » Sun May 07, 2006 9:54 pm

I've been vegetarian for about 20 years, tried being vegan (made it 2 years), but am now back to lacto-ovo-veg. Currently living in Seattle, WA and looking forward to hearing how other active like-minded folks can perform at the top of their game with a Vegan/Veg lifestyle.

I'm not a bodybuilder by any means, but enjoy lifting, and doing endurance events: biking, running, tris...its all good!

Welcome!

Thanks for joining the group. Cool to see another person from the Northwest.

Don't worry, not everyone here is a bodybuilder. We have athletes from all types of sports and non-athletes as well.

Thanks for finding us and explore the forum for lots of tips about vegan sports and nutrition.

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.

Well.......it is not about how it made me feel, or the ethicality of it....it was a family thing.

If your family, friends and community are not supportive it can be very hard! I became vegan while involved with someone, and it has been very hard on him, and our relationship. He is not vegan, and doesn't "believe in it".

I have been excluded from get-togethers because there was a question of what to feed me.

Now, with that said, I am a stubborn Yankee so I never waiver :) , but that doesn't mean it isn't hard at times. That is why a community such as this is important. It's a safe haven where you can ask questions and get an answer that doesn't involve "...if you just ate meat, you would be able to (insert your personal challenge here)."
