Getting back into shape...

#1 Postby bill1987 » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:15 pm

I have been vegan for almost four years now and i made the transition from being a vegetarian because i realized the hypocrisy inherent with a vegetarian diet. Right after i made the switch i made a conscious effort to eat healthy and stay active and subsequently got into good shape. Still in fairly good shape as this point as i go to the gym 4-5 times a week and i am again making the effort to eat a healthy plant based diet after not placing as much emphasis on my diet as i did previously. Right now i'm about 165-170 lbs and want to lean out a little bit and then add some muscle. Happy to be part of the forum as i have been lurking for awhile haha

All the best with your goals.

Don't be afraid to start a journal, you'll probably pick up some great advice, encouraging words and you have a really useful reference tool to look back on to review what worked/didn't work. Kind regards and good luck MF.
