Welcome Amy Catherine!

Great to have another Oregonian as well :) I'm in Portland, just minutes from Gresham and we have dozens of others in the area. This is where Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness is based.

I'm glad you have been inspired by some of our recent projects. Brendan has a new book coming out in 3 months, a 300-page book published by Penguin.

Thanks for posting a link to your site as well. I'll check it out.

We'll be starting forum gatherings on a regular basis soon. loveliberate on the forum is going to help set that up.

We hope to see you at some of our get-togethers.

Thanks again for finding us and welcome aboard!

We are an awesome family and Sunday is the slowest day on the forum. You will be greeted with at least another dozen or so welcomes by tomorrow :)

I've met about 40 people on here in person, many helped out at the Vegan Holiday Festival and I see others while traveling.

We are indeed a great family here!

welcome acatherine13! "Fit and nourished" is what we're all about here.

Looks like it's Oregon vs. Germany as far as new members go... :wink: 8)

Yep:

Brendan's book is great. The information he has definately help me eat healthy and stay healthy. You'd be surprised how easy it is to stop eating junk food once you are properly nourished. Your cravings just go away.

welcome, great to see you here!
you'll notice that the more high quality foods you eat, the less you'll have cravings and the less food you'll need to eat because the foods contain more nutrients....highly dense nutrition
that's what raw foods are all about too
whole, fresh nurishment, plus lots of fiber and water

there are dozens of members from Germany. We have over 600 members who have posted something, at most a couple hundred "regular" posters and a bunch who come by every once in a while. And a bunch of spam members that haven't been deleted because it is so time consuming.

But aside from Oregon, Germany is the top spot for our members. Texas is another place with lots of members. Toronto and Pittsburgh seem to be popular among our members as well.

We have members meet up all the time on travels, vacations, business trips, etc. It's really great! And we're a new forum, only 1 3/4 years old.

If you have friends who'd like to be part of a community like this, please encourage them to come on by.

I'd be willing to waste time cleaning up the memberlist...although you probably have to be an admin for that, better suited for you if that's the case...
