  1. I buy my soy milk from a supermarket called Tesco (UK), 1lt is about 65p and I think is one of the cheapest and tastes ok. Some other are more expensive, up to £1.20.
  2. I don't think there's a huge difference but it depends on what you're going to buy. A meat eater can buy fresh meat or fish and spend a fortune, vegan meals, mock meat for example, are never that expensive, some fry's products I buy from a local health store are never more than £3.50.
  3. After few months of training occasionally I've now joined a local gym and started a new routine, I'm hoping to train more regularly 3 times a week. I also go jogging twice a week, been doing it for a couple of months and it feels good to be running again.

  4. Keep up the great work Robert! I really admire what you've achieved so far!
  5. Nicely put! I feel for you, alchol brings the worst out of some people. What's your job? And here's to a better saturday night!
  6. I don't think my job is vegan, I use computers, monitors and other similar equipment which I'm sure have some sort of animal products. I once read that most computer and keyboard contain such products so...
  7. Fantastic stuff, well done guys, great fight!!
  8. Thanks Alex, you should definitely consider a career as a contortionist! Crystal, I think we were 13, I'm sure there will be even more next time!
  9. Hey guys, here's some pics from yesterday's meet-up with some of the guys from veganfitness and the mighty Daywalker! It was a good night and we had a nice meal at a Thai buffet-restaurant. The table What's going on?? More awesome flexibility Me, Matt and Alex The group
  10. Hey all, I've been to Mount Vesuvio, Pompei and Naples with my friend Mark, here's some pics. Vesuvio is easy to climb, you can drive up to 1000 mt and then climb to around 1150 which is about 100 mt short of the top. We had a good time, Naples is the place where I was born, it's a crazy city and they make the best pizza in the world, we had one every day. lava river from the 1944 eruption the crater smoke! view from the top the boys Look how far it was! Me in Naples' Piazza Plebiscito
  11. I agree, we should benefit from even better technology when it comes to transport. Prius is a great example, we have the technology to build enviromentaly friendly cars and that should be the way forward. I suspect that the oil industry is slowing down this process, I don't think we will be seeing any major changes in car technology until there's oil to be sold.
  12. Nice pics, Helsinki looks cool! So much vegan food to choose from! Is there a big vegan comunity in Finland? How did you like that valsoia ice cream? I've tried it in Italy last week and it's the best I've had so far.
  13. Nice! I shall see you at Mildred's!
  14. I had an interesting conversation with a non vegan friend last week. He said that a vegan shouldn't have pets if he really cares about animal welfare. Most pets are bred for human enjoyment, even if a vegan finds a stray cat or dog he/she is supporting in some way the breeding industry. Technically, a non vegan person may want a pet but he's unable to find a stray one because a vegan found it first. The same applys to a vegan giving another vegan a pet because his cat just gave birth to few kittens. The mother and father are possibly related to a breeding farm of some sort. If our vegan cat is related to a breeding farm and goes hunting, aren't we indirectly responsible for the death of innocent birds? They would still be alive if it wasn't for pet breeding. Possibly different rules aplly to different pets but cats will probably hunt even if we feed them meat. Does this make any sense? I can see where my friend was going with that even though I suspect he was playing the devil's advocate, but he made me think. I don't have a pet but I'd like to one day, would that be ethically vegan? Or would I just have a pet for my selfish enjoment? Then if we don't feed our pet a vegan diet, aren't we supporting the companies that produce food for pets by killing other animals?
  15. Keep me posted Alex and don't worry about driving on the wrong side of the road, you get used to it pretty quickly!
  16. Let me know if you intend to stop in London, Tarz and I live in the same area and it would be great to meet you. I'm starting a new job the first week of October and I'm not sure which shift I'm doing but any time after 6-7pm should be fine. Are you moving to Scotland for good?
  17. Hi & Welcome!! Check out this link for info on how to get vegan supplements in the UK http://www.veganbodybuilding.org/supps.htm The website is also very informative.
  18. You should have no problem getting calcium from natural sources, Check out this list. http://pages.interlog.com/~john13/recipes/calcium.htm Apricots are also rich in calcium and you can always get calcium from some fortified foods like soy milk.
  19. In my view one's diet won't make the acne go away, it's an internal inflammation and needs time or medical treatment. It may be easier to get rid of your eczema by using some good moisturizing cream. The only drug that seem to work with acne is roaccutane but I wouldn't reccomend it unless you've had it for many years. Check out this thread for more info on remedies. viewtopic.php?t=498&highlight=
  20. Had the same problem, I now take a spoonful of hemp oil twice a day and the pain was gone in the space of a week.
  21. Hi guys, received this message from a friend on myspace, can anyone help? Please forward it to anyone you know in LA. Thanks! Subject: Up to 40 cats in immediate danger! PLEASE RESPOND TO ALEX AT writebiz@isp. com or 818-795-8891. Hello, My name is Alex Salisbury. I am the manager of an upscale apartment complex in NoHo. I have a tenant who has been here since 1990, and in the past few years, he has collected somewhere around 35 to 40 cats of all ages. We were completely unaware of this, until the inpleasant aroma began wafting from his apartment. He is alone and not in good health, and has become a recluse, though he feeds them very well and they seem healthy, are indoor cats only, and range in age from birth to around four years. His daughter is finally going to come on Labor Day weekend and take him to live by her in Las Vegas, but she has made it absolutely clear the cats are going to be taken to the Humane Society to be put down. I have been trying to place them for the past two months, calling every society and shelter, including the Humane Society, who said if they did take them, they would indeed have to be euthanized. Everyone is full and I am at wits end. My children and I are very involved with rescuing, but none of us have any more room for more! I know that his daughter will just take him and walk out and shut the door, leaving me to find a solution to this sad ordeal. I am just looking for places who will take two or three of them, and if I can find enough of them, at least most of these darlings will be placed or at least have a chance at life!! Please, please if you can help me with any information and/or leads, I would be so, so grateful. These precious innocents do not deserve to end up this way. Thank you in advance for ANY advice you can give me. I am so very upset over this, and have made at least fifty phone calls to places already, attempting to get help. The shelters, etc., are so overloaded, it is just such a serious problem, and all the little abandoned creatures have so much love to give and surely did NOT ask to be born!! Sorry, didn't mean to get on a rant, but I am really running against time to save these felines. Again, thanks for whatever help or info you can give me. Sincerely, Alex Salisbury PLEASE RESPOND TO ALEX AT writebiz@isp. com or 818-795-8891

I've been to see a surgeon and the operation to correct it involves inserting a bar to push the sternum out. I'm not sure if I should have it done, I'm still thinking about it. I've been told that my lungs and breathing are normal but I sometimes feel a weird pressure building right in the middle of the chest, it's a feeling difficult to describe. I wish your gf all the best, it's a big surgery and I hope she'll get better soon.
