  1. i prfer sumo deadlifts too, maybe because i've got longer legs, and u dont have to pull the weight as much distance. Right now i'm on 180kg for 75kg bodyweight which isnt spectacular but i havnt been doing them for too long so maybe i could boost it to 200 within a couple of months....i can only hope, and train smart
  2. I dont see how grains can be bad for humans, most of the worlds long lived populations eat loads of them and they're pretty much a staple diet for many countries. 8000 years isnt very long geologically but its enough to adapt to eating grains, jsut a humans adapted to drinking other animals milk; not that i'm advocating this, but thats cruelty issues environment etc, not the fact that its 'not natural' I dont think humans can naturally live on just fruits, veggies roots and nuts, sure you have raw foodists but these plants are all pretty seasonal, personally i dont think its possible to live, say in the UK on raw vegan food that is NOT imported and not farmed using modern agricultural techniques. and also whether we're *meant* to consume grains or not, whether its natural or not, can we thrive on them...i think so. Ditto for legumes.
  3. aaaww thanks that was a while ago, ive got some better ones now but when i post them they're absolutely massive and take up the whole screen, i tried to do that on another thread last night, but deleted them cz they were so big, do u happen to know how i can er post them normal size :/ The video isnt really about cruelty (though the dairy one might be, and the fish one does talk about waste), but rather about just how ing so many meat products are. a VERY interesting point the guy makes though....surely by eating all this sh!te (i.e. burgers, kievs etc with very little actual meat, but rather skin, mechanically recovered meat, organs, fat, rusk, water, gristle, breadcrumbs etc) LESS animals have to die then if say, burgers had to be made out of 100% lean meat and the rest was thrown away... clearly it would be better if people just didnt eat meat but quite frankly i'll feel a surge of...well definately not satisfaction, more consolation next time i see someone eat a chicken kiev as opposed to a chicken breast, or a sausage instead of a pork chop!
  4. whole episode on youtube. There is also one for fish and one for dairy too
  5. Hi everyone! I've posted here a few times but must have been a year or so hows everyone doing? Admittidly since i've last posted i've not kept 100% vegan fidelity, but for the most part i've been pretty good (still vegetarian) still trying to improve fitness...have had a couple of amateur boxing bouts and right now i'm trying to get some serious raw strength, would love to discuss diet and training etc with ppl...

    Hey everyone!

  7. A biology degree clubbing watching boxing and mma doing boxing badminton walking eating travelling b!tching about people (come on guys...we do this just as much as the ladiess)
  8. smoothies are lovely...i cant imagine a non vegan one tasting nice somehow...what would it have in it....milk or yoghurt; doesnt sound nice with fruit pulp

    Hey everyone!

    I'm from the north of england, near manchester, ive been to london a few times...cant say i'm acquainted with Mildreds yea it does suck not knowing any vegans (vegetarianism and veganism is also a VERY hot trait in girls IMO) but in time i'm sure i'll find some around...

    Hey everyone!

    Thank you! Vegetarianism...which id like to hone into veganism is really helping me get motivated fitness wise, alot of people have repeated the standard nonsense that you cant be strong blahdiblahdiblah, and I've already proved my friends wrong on that, but I'm really up for getting some elite strength and fitness, the boxing season is over so i have no more fights an I've got about 8 weeks of non boxing training to get some obscene strength and raw stamina...I might have to post some then and now (well in the future) pics, and hope that everyone including myself sees a difference....also i might give intelligent dieting, something i rarely do a go...looking forward...i'll have to check out some of the fat loss articles

    Hey everyone!

    I would say that's just because of a very poor knowledge of basic biology and/or what 'vegetarian' means. A few centuries ago, though, it was believed that fishes weren't animals. Hell, even up to know some humans say, not just that fishes don't feel pain, but that they aren't animals! (and never forget that humans ain't animals either... ) How come you don't know any other vegans in real life? Where do you live? I live in Chile... yes, Chile, South America, and I know lots of vegans. Well... I'm an animal rights activist, so that might explain why. Aaaanyways. Welcome again! All the best, Samuel. Thank you how come i dont know any vegans.....i wish i knew :/ maybe people just arent very nice where i come from I know a few vegetarians though (again, non fish eating ones, in fact personaly i gave up fish before giving up organic and free range meats) I'm from England...britain has an unnacceptably high meat consumption come to think of it....probably only surpassed by the US who's bitch our country has shamelessly become :/
  14. Hi guys and gals A few months ago i wrote a few posts bt I've not been around for sometime... So far my diet isnt completely vegan (totally vegetarian though, including fish; how that has ever considered to be vegetarian is beyond me), but I'm hoping to get rid of eggs and milk in my diet... I'm confident that chatting to other vegan athletes will help unfortunately I dont even know any vegans IRL My fitness interests are boxing, which is complemented by running and bodyweight exercises and occasionally weights; and occasionally swimming and badminton... looking forward to chatting to y'all
  15. however you spell his name: Mariusz Pudzianowski, strongest man in the world! nuff said! Most ppl accept you can be in shape and vegan, even very athletic, but strongest man in the world.... Realistically though, a world leader would be great; come on Obama, you know you want to...
