Hello everyone! My name is Pat, I'm a 30 year old dude living in Squamish, BC which is the outdoor recreation capital of Canada! Obviously living here, there certain expectations to live up to. I love it! I am not vegan, but I am very interested, well lets say I'm disgusted at being part of killing and/or torturing animals for our so called gains...About a year ago I made an overnight change to vegetarian due to the movie "Forks over Knives" and "The China Study". It really changed my life. Now I support and promote a healthy, plant based way of living.
A little history: My whole life has been active, from the typical sports as a child to pro-am and proffesional sports in my later years. Some of these sports include, snowboarding at a proffesional level, downhill mountain biking at a pro-am level, motorcycle racing(streetbikes), MMA at all levels, and fitness at all levels.
For my years of sport participation, I have also hired more then a few different persoanl trainers and coaches. So I decided to become one myself. I mean, get paid to workout, research, and profile people.....that sounds pretty good right!? As I am still attending school for PT training, I have noticed that the fitness industry has a hard time support being truly healthy in a vegetarian or better still a vegan way of life. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills! It's so obviously clear to me and I didn't even search for this knowledge, it found me and just stuck, it's like a higher power has guided me to vegan ways of thinking because it is right! (not religious)
With that said, my health has turned to a more spiritual outlook on life but more so optimising my brain/body function!
On average people use 10% of their brains, well I'd like see what happens when we use 70, 80, 90% of our capacity. Imagine! A healthy lifestyle including truly raw, organic foods that clearly were meant for human consumption is the current step I am on. More then ever, I wish to help people realise the truths about corperations and the food they sell us, not to mention doctors and pharmaceutical companies and what their agenda's are all about. They don't care about us and I'm sick of being played!!!
I appreciate the opportunity to be part of a group like this, that will support my choices, help me find answers, and also provide proof that this stuff actually works and works well...! Thank you. Over and out.
