Hello from NJ.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. My name is Craig and Today I decided that I would become vegan. I'm 29 years old and I've been bodybuilding for the past 12 years. When I started bodybuilding I was 18 years old, 270 lbs (fat)!! Never ate veggies or anything really healthy. With hard work I got down to 200 lbs with 6% bodyfat. Now I'm at a solid 215. And to be honest I'm sick of eating animal products. To be honest I never even imagined that a vegan could be a bodybuilder. Therefore I'm glad that I found a site that is dedicated to the bodybuilding vegan. I plan on getting a lot info from this site, and wouldnt mind some begginer advice.

Hi Craig! Welcome to the forum! It's so great to have you here. It's interesting that you feel "sick of eating animal products." Is going vegan something you've been thinking about for a while now and just thought you couldn't do it while bodybuilding? Or is it something that just struck you suddenly? I'm just curious as to what prompted the change (which I think is AWESOME, by the way! ). So... how did Days 1 & 2 go for you?


Glad to have you here, as I'm sure you'll be able to provide some great feedback and advice for lots of people who are newer to bodybuilding/fitness, and you can tons of great advice from people who have more experience with a vegan/plant-based diet! Welcome aboard, Craig!
