Hi guys, Stephen here. Been vegan a bit over 2 years now, I'm 20 years old, and just want to be stronger, healthier, and all around better.
I just recently decided to start exercising. I lifted weights for the first time in my life just a week ago... instantly addicted. I am following a beginning strength program and I'm really excited to track my progress and see myself visually and statistically get stronger. Really pumped.
So my goal is to gain muscle. I'm 6'3" and just last week weighed a measly 148lbs (gained 4-5 lbs so far). I'm pretty much set in terms of my workout program, but my diet is a whole different story.
Before the last 2 weeks, I was the unhealthiest chip-chomping soda-guzzling vegan in the world. I cut down completely on caffeine, chips, even quit smoking. I have since completely changed my diet, and was hoping for some of you who have been doing this for a while to critique my current diet. So I'll be posting in the Nutrition forum shortly after this.
Anyways, things about me: I live in Louisville, from St. Louis. Love disc golf, movies, plan to major in computer science, i like to make music on the computer (I'm not very good but here's a sample --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPFr5caVODU&feature=plcp
So anyways, glad I found this site, looking forward to being on here regularly.
Here's what I'm working with:http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m51 ... 340017.jpghttp://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m51 ... 340018.jpghttp://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m51 ... 340019.jpg
Yeah, I got some work to do.
