New Member from Germany!

Hey guys,
I am amazed to see, how many members this site already has. I checked out the site after having read Robert Cheeke's "Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness" Guide, which definetely gave me some serious insight in how to approach a solid, healthy, and all-providing vegan diet.
As of now, I am working out 3, occasionally 4 times a week, since I'm quite busy with my final exams in school. I am vegetarian since June 2011 and turned vegan just 3 months after in September 2011. I don't regret or miss anything. The main reason for my change in diet is that I no longer wanted to contribute to animal's suffering.
Many of my colleagues have asked me, if I would still manage to be as sporty and maintain/build up quality muscle. Their doubt is basically the foundation of my motivation. It pushes me forward in my workout sessions and helps me gain in perseverance. I love it!
I am happy to be a new member of this site and wish everyone best of luck in achieving their goals and maintaining a healthy life!
Cheers,
Leo

Hello Leo,

Sounds like you have the same reasons and motivations as me. Welcome and hope to see you around here. :)
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

Hey leo, warm welcomes to a fellow newby on this board!

Hope you achieve much and prove those guys wrong who have doubts, or rather just most people have misconceptions about being vegan and being fit and gaining musclemass.

best of luck

Thanks Vit!
Hoping to prove those guys otherwise, and maybe they'll start to rethink about the whole idea of veganism and that vegans do not necessarily fulfill the stereotypes (given a healthy, balanced diet).
Good luck to you too, mate!
