Hello everyone

#1 Postby Flapeth » Wed May 23, 2012 8:30 pm

Hi,

I was a vegetarian for one year and then gave up, several years back. Well I eat meat because I'm lazy and used to it, but I do strongly hate the mistreatment of animals and the unnecessarily large consumption of meat particularly in the US.

I want to be as healthy as possible, I already take supplements, so I figured if it's healthier to not eat meat then why should I?

I'm here to hopefully learn some more on how to get all of my nutrients, vitamins, and proteins without meat and dairy, to be a full on Vegan and see how it goes.

I'm enlisting in the Army and love physical fitness so this should be interesting :)

Hello and welcome.

I found vegan RD site to be good for telling me about things I would (or might) need as a vegan: http://www.theveganrd.com/2010/11/recom ... egans.html
Check out the nutrition section here on bodybuilding.com too... there are some helpful posts there.

Once you've committed to a healthy lifestyle and have found a few recipes you love it gets easy to stay on track. :)
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Stcalico, that's a great website, I just started reading some of the article and I greatly appreciate the honesty and realism of it.

I will take notes about the vitamins and minerals I need, etc...

Thank you
