liftandcode Posted July 29, 2008 Share Posted July 29, 2008 Hi all, I'm a 27 year old male from the Boston area.I'm so glad to have found this site. It's been a tremendous help these last few weeks. I've been a vegetarian for over 2 years, eating some seafood here and there. My girlfriend and I went "unhealthy vegan" for about 7-8 months back in 2006/2007, but fell back to veg/pescaterian. I've been back training hard for about 3 weeks, 100% Vegan. I feel much more knowledgeable now than I was a few years ago and hope to stick with it permanently this time. It also helps that I know a few vegans personally this time around I used to be seriously into bodybuilding, got to about 170 lbs w/ 10% bodyfat from about Age 19-21. Then things fell apart. Back then it was all grilled chicken and pasta. I've chosen to live a cruelty free lifestyle and am hoping to get back to that weight as a strict vegan. Currently I'm about 230 lbs at 5'7'', which is grossly overweight. I'm still quite muscular, just trying to drop fat while gaining/maintaining muscle. The good ole BB mantra I guess. Had a good workout last night. Squatted 225 x10 and 245x6. I may need some motivation here and there on the Vegan diet but really am looking forward to keeping it strict. I also want to say that Troy really motivated me with his green smoothies. I went out and got a blendtec and a pump and seal so I could bring them to work Still waiting on the pump and seal, but I've already had quite a few green smoothies at home.
