Hi,

My name is Markanthony. I’m from (and currently reside in) Chicago, Illinois, I’m 52 years old, 6’0” and 215lbs. I have been a Vegan for almost a year now, and I do not miss being a carnivore one bit. My reasons are very spiritual; much like I would imagine most that are here and I don’t see myself ever going back to being a carnivore. Besides, my mind, body, and soul are functioning exponentially faster, more efficient, and more powerful than I’ve ever experienced.

I had been weightlifting for over seven years (as a carnivore). One day while doing my Power Squat routine, my hip blew out. That was about a year and a half ago, but I’m happy to say I’m back at it…thanks be to The One. I am an early morning lifter (I’m in the gym at 5am) and I find the gym is my sanctuary.

I think being a Vegan weightlifter is a solitary existence, so I am extremely grateful for this site. I will not have a relationship with a carnivore; no offense to anybody, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.

I hope to meet people who share the same passions for life and the living as I do, forge strong relationships, and hopefully make a positive contribution or two as well.

Maybe I’ll even meet someone…

Geez!!!

Thanks...

Hi, welcome to the forum! Are you going to the Chicago vegetarian festival this weekend? Or I think its this weekend, hopefully it didnt already pass. If you search for it on here there are a couple threads about it with details.

Hi MarkAnthony

Welcome...when you say your hip blew out..was it that incident that made you go Vegan??? Did you find out something about the way meat metabolizes and draws minerals out of the bones perhaps???

Just curious.. :)
