rendermatt Posted August 18, 2008 Share Posted August 18, 2008 Hi all! My name is Matt. I live in North Carolina, US, I am 5' 10" 135 lbs currently, rising, trying to gain weight. My goal is around 155 lbs at least. I want to really bulk up. I have been vegetarian since fall 07, but I frequently make "mistakes" because honestly gaining weight is a higher priority for me than vegetarianism. However, I haven't eaten meat since July 14 and since then have eaten less and less dairy. You might call me a "bad" vegan but, in my own words I would describe my views as this- if I had the choice, ideally I would eat an entirely vegan diet. I try to get as close to this as possible. I guess you could also call me a "localvore" (I think thats what they call it) meaning that ideally all my food would come from my local farmers market. And finally, I try to avoid processed foods as much as possible. I just really don't know how to make it happen which is usually why I end up going to dairy or meat if it seems like I have no food and I really need some calories. I have the vegan cookbook "veganomicon" coming in the mail, it should help me. Its just that I was raised on a pretty typical diet with mostly processed foods and very little fresh produce, and I don't really know how to live off the stuff. I noticed the meal plans in the article section of this website, I will check them out. Again hello all and I look forward to communicating with you guys!
