Hello, I have been a vegan for maybe 1-2 years now. I live in a forest and eat mostly the food i grow. Hope to get to know some decent folk on here.

Cheers.

You live in a forest where? That cool, living off the land is a dying art. Awesome you get the best of both worlds, you live in the forest and you still have internet access. Welcome to the league, I mean, forum. haha.

Indeed, it is nice living in a forest. It truly feels like the most natural place to be living.

I must admit now, I am sure it will come out eventually, I work in an abattoir. I kill and dress animals 3 days of the week. The vegan diet started, for me, as an experiment which seems to be going well so far. Anyone who wants to get hostile over that fact can in advance get fucked, I am open to intelligent discussion about this as in everything.

I might come across as hostile or detached at times, that is how I am, but these are some things I would love to discuss:

-Fermentation & brewing
-Foraging and sustainable living
-Weight lifting
-NUTRITION on a vegan diet especially! I find most vegans I meet have TERRIBLE diets.

Again, I look forward to talking to many fun and interesting people

And that is how my first post would look if not for the fact I got messed up on homebrew.

So you are a Vegan for health over ethical reasons?

I was previously a pure carnivore, supplemented with a little fermented food. I did not believe it was possible to be as healthy as I was without eating meat or any animal product. I will repeat to clarify that this is an experiment

Well, I started veganism for weight loss, I confess I became vegan by accident. Of course, I started reading and researching, onne thing led to the other, and after watching many documentaries I can honestly say I've stayed vegan for humane reasons. I wouldn't have lasted with such shallow reasons as vanity.

You should not be so defensive. But you should also know that most of us here love animals. Try to stay open to this lifestyle, listen and observe without judging or building a wall. I preach kindness to all, that includes other people wwhose opinions and beliefs might differ from mine.

I am very open, I want to hear people's opinions but most of the time, with this subject, I am just bombarded with hatred and nobody learns anything. While I recognize that there are some terrible things going on with factory farming and other inhumane practices, I cannot say I would remain vegan for ethical reasons. The animals I deal with exist purely for the purpose of the meat trade, live VERY good lives (if sometimes a little short), they are treated with great kindness and killed humanely. Sadly this is not the case in most other places.

Thank you to everyone who has welcomed me so far :)

Welcome :D BTW my vegan diet started as an experiment too about 3 years ago. I have lifted weights for over 20 years and I've been a competitive power lifter and bodybuilder. I became a vegan for vanity reasons and I have stayed a vegan for other reasons but if this diet would have interfered with my ability to grow muscle and be strong I would have dropped it, luckily the opposite was true :D

I will have to disagree with you there Lawsonsj, when I was on a high meat diet I found I was much stronger for my weight, I found it very easy to stay lean and build muscle.

No problem everybody's different. I know that I feel much better on this side of the fence :D I hope your experiment works for you and you stay a vegan. BTW If I can offer in any advice on your diet let me know. I have helped a lot of folks that are bodybuilders and powerlifters and folks that just want to get their food to work for them.

Oh BTW here is a link to my journal viewtopic.php?t=27490 not to bad for a girl :wink:

Take care
Sandra
