What's your opinion on vegan or completely natural body builders? I'm not either, my sister is vegan and so it's just practically all the time I don't eat meat, eggs or dairy and it's been like that for almost 2 years. I started going to the gym about 9 months ago and have really shocked myself in how I've put on 10kg and look a lot bigger and toned. All without animal protein like whey, pre workouts or over eating meat, eggs or milk. Should I consider changing my diet ?

It’s not absolutely necessary in order to gain muscle but imo you would have better success without a vegan diet.

But if it works for you and you’re happy being vegan then there isn’t much reason to change it unless you really want to.

9 years ago I tried to kill myself. I was in and out of hospitals and treatment centers from then on. I was self destructive, I lost people I loved, and I did whatever I had to do to cope with my misery. I dated a guy who forced himself on me and who abused me whenever I did something he didn’t like. I went away to college to try to start over and realized I couldn’t get out of bed to go to class. I tried to transfer back home but I stopped eating and wound up back in treatment. I dropped out of college and couldn’t work much more than a part time job. I struggled daily to get out of bed. I hated myself. I stopped sleeping, self harmed frequently, I was a mess. I thought I would never get better, and I never expected it to make it to my 21st birthday. But now I’m in a healthy, beautiful relationship with the girl of my dreams. I go to school full time, play college softball, work part time. I’m applying for nursing school while training to be a lifeguard. I have some money saved for when I’m ready to move out with my girlfriend. I never made any plans for a future, because I was positive I wouldn’t have one. Luckily, I am in an amazing place in my life. I should have never made it this far, but I am so thankful for all the reasons that I am. For anyone who thinks they can’t go on any longer, for anyone who swears there’s no way it’ll get better, it does. Please wait, you deserve to be alive to see it.

Six Years Ago Today.

November 9, 2010

2

It’s just a great week for historical events.

Seventy-eight years ago (November 9-10, 1938), Nazis ransacked hundreds of Jewish homes on Kristallnacht – “The Night of Broken Glass.”

Last night, vandals destroyed shop windows and graffiti’d anti-Semitic slurs in Philadelphia.

There are selfish, hateful bigots among us. But they are NOT all of us, and we – the people of the United States of America – outnumber them by far. We are all ages, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual preferences, backgrounds, and political views. We are so much bigger than an election result. And we are stronger than they take us for.

As Mahatma Gandhi once said: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

As one of my favorite fanfiction writers once wrote: “Sometimes kindness is all we can give. Sometimes kindness is enough. Always be kind.”

With those things in mind… Protect yourselves and your loved ones. Be there for each other. And above all, be safe.
