wow, it's been ages that I've been in a forum like this
I've already browsed through the place a couple of times, and it really seems to be packed with cool and friendly people.
I'm only 21, but I've been interested in bodybuilding for a couple of years already. However, I never took it too seriously, more of a side hobby, but I've maintained a decent physique through the years. I've had an international upbringing, so i got to travel a lot, experience a lot different cultures, states of mind... All the knowledge I've gathered in my life this far just gave me a kind of push to go vegetarian about a year ago. It was also related to some health problems in my family, so health and fitness is a really big thing to me, and I care about it passionately. It was the thing that gave me the kick. The more I read up on vegetarianism and veganism, i started to move from a mainly health-oriented perspective into ethics. I've always cared about animals, grew up with tons of them around, so this is a no brainer. There was no way I could continue to do anything that contributes to animals getting killed, tortured, enslaved, and the likes of that. Went Vegan a couple of months ago, and it's only been absolutely positive this far.
Now, I've also started taking bodybuilding more seriously, exercise regularly, read up on info, and I think I'm doing pretty well so far.
Hope to meet some nice people here
Adios, for now.
