Hi everyone,

I'm Liquidstateofbeing, or as people call me off the internet: Do (same pronunciation as 'doe'). I'm a 22 years old male from Belgium, who is currently still studying (Environmental Management). I try to live as conscious as possible, without giving up too much of this modern lifestyle. But luckily, it's hardly ever the case of giving something up, it's just about making an effort.
My username stands for my view on life. We're not static. We can change whenever we want, and how we want (but again we just have to make an effort).

I have no real experience with bodybuilding, but I've had to urge to do something about my stocky physique and bad posture for quite some time now. And it's time to act! To be honest, I'm not vegan but I've been a strict vegetarian for the past four years now. I came to this veganbodybuilding discussion board because I think this is the most knowledgeable place for information about bodybuilding without meaty-products. And I think it's a good change to get a taste of the vegan lifestyle.
What has been keeping me from joining other boards and going to the gym so far is that I'm intimidated. I'm just another stocky (vegetarian) guy who wants to get bigger, I can imagine that they've seen plenty of those.

My other problem is that I have a lot of trouble with figuring stuff out all by myself. When I get a set of clear rules that I can follow, there is no problem. But when I need to extract all different kinds of information from different sources I don't seem to be able to do it. So finding perfect exercises, meal plans and so on is really troublesome for me. (This doesn't mean I don't want to make the effort for finding stuff, but I'll definitely need some guidance on that...)

Well, this is it for now. If y'all have any more questions about me, I'll be happy to answer them!

Read some books, I like Robert Cheeke's book and Brendan Brazier's books, they are very clear cut on why what and how to eat and work out.

I've already gotten my hands on 'Thrive' by Brendan Brazier, now I still have to find a copy of Robert Cheeke's book (I did read his article on veganbodybuilding.com though! But the more the merrier.) Thanks for the tip!

I've also made an appointment at my local gym for an introduction session, so i'll see how it goes from there on.

Nice, yeah fill us in. Maybe start a journal here in the training journals section and check out other people's as well. My is a shitshow but some people actually keep a detailed log of what they eat and their workouts.
