  3. If speaking of life affecting books: Fit for life by Harvey and Merylin Diamond - I read this book when I was like 17 and it literally changed me - I was a vegetarian at this time, and it was then when I first started with the vegan diet, and more recently: Skinny bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin that brought me back to vegan after years of vegetarian lifestyle.

  13. Hi, everyone I am new to the forum, but not to the fitness/vegan way of living (I don't call it "lifestyle" because I think that's not what it is). I've always recommended to others (who seem to have no control of their diet and workouts) to keep a log of what they eat and what they do, but I've never kept one myself, so now I've decided to give it a try and see if it is going to be helpful at all. In this log I intend to post my workouts, things I eat, moods and general physical state. I expect and hope for opinions, suggestions and even critisism of your side
  14. Hello, everyone I am from Bulgaria and I've been a vegetarian for as long as I can remember. In my late teen years I became vegan, but a couple of years later I went back to vegetarian because I let the doctors persuade me that the hormonal problems that I was experiencing back then were caused by my diet. Much, much later I got sick of eating all that crap so here I am.. I've been working out (in one way or another) almost all my life. Nowadays, among other things, I teach yoga and do personal training. My personal workouts include ashtanga yoga, a lot of high intensity interval bodyweight training and cross training. It is really nice that I've found this forum, 'cause I'm getting sick of pepole trying to impose their opinion on me, that workout without meat is a lost cause.
