Hello from the southern hemisphere....
I only just discovered this site, glad to see that there are so many vegans out there that are into weight training and so much good information...
Here is a bit about me...
I've been Vegan for 4 years (was vegetarian before that, until I saw the light), I'm currently training 5 days a week...
I'm 6'3 and 225 pounds at the moment, but I'd like to bulk out a little more, hoping to get to about 240... I can get bigger, but then I have to buy new clothes...
Chris

Welcome Chris!

Great to have you here. I know we have a few people from the Southern Hemisphere and we're always looking for more :P

I would love to be your size!

Best of luck with the bulking process and we look forward to hearing more from you. Welcome aboard!

Thanks for the welcome everyone...
Being fairly big to start off, isn't always an advantage...
Getting rid of body fat is my biggest challenge, so it's all about getting the balance right between, lifting big, eating enough and keeping the body fat at a reasonable level...
