Hello From Alaska.

#1 Postby godlover1171 » Thu Jun 22, 2006 11:12 pm

Hello to everyone out there. I'm not a vegan yet, but I am making little changes daily to my diet to become more vegan. Welp now I will give a little history and my motivations for becomming a vegan.
Welp I have been a bodybuilder for about five years. Hold on there ladies, don't be hoping for a ripped picture yet. You would not know if you looked at me that I was a bodybuilder. I have a lot of knowlege about bodybuilding, but so far, I havn't been able to put it into use. I am loosing bodyfat right now, and in a few months I will be trying to build up. During all my years as a...Ahem... Bodybuilder, I have done a very high protein diet. Chicken, Steak... almost any kind of animal product.
This leads me to my motivation. I am becoming a vegan for the health prospects of the diet. I am not doing it from a religious stand point. Any why that is about it for now. Until next time. Train hard and get big.

The ethical considerations arent too shabby of a motivation to go vegan either.

Welcome!

Great to see another bodybuilder here, and someone from Alaska. I know I've shipped a movie or two out that way.

You came to the right place for motivation, inspiration, and information about bodybuilding on a vegan diet.

We're happy to have you here, and start exploring, you'll have fun!

Welcome aboard!!!

Welcome! My avoidance of animal products is not based on religious beliefs either, but rather on ethical idea(l)s.

Welcome ! :D

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.
