time to introduce myself. Well, i'm a brand spanking newbie. I can't say that i've been a Vegan or a Vegatarian for x amount of years or have any redeemable claim to fame when it comes to this lifestyle... yes i'm coming from the Dark side.
So a bit of back ground and my motivations... for the last 10+ years i've tried most diets to get myself in shape... i can't even say that i've ever really been fat on the other side of the coin i've never really been super lean either - just in between and to the normal eye you'd say i'm healthy.
And there's the rub! You see, when i have been in the shape i want to be for my chosen sport cycling i've had to starve myself on a caloric deficit and as you probably know this takes a mighty discplined mind to keep to starving yourself - inevitably i always fail and put all the weight back on. I'm Sick Of It! And i think this lifestyle will solve this problem - cause if i'm eating right... i can eat as much as i like without torturing my body and still reach my goals - especially the ones i thought were out of reach.
The other thing that has attracted me to this lifestyle is that i work in a stressful job in a fast paced industry and in order to perform my best i need to give my body the best nutrition possible + stripping away all the bullSh*t... i really just want to get back to making life a bit more simple.
So there you go guys - my motivations are somewhat selfish and that's the honest truth however i also know that in the process of changing my habits i will inadvertantly become another part of the collective good that this lifestyle represents.
Above all i want to keep it real - so i thank you in advance for your support and hopefully i can provide the same.
