In January 2017 I became Vegan.
My transition started in November 2016, as I learned about brutal slaughter houses and the unnecessary torture animals experience every day. I also learned that we don't need animal protein to be healthy, have enough energy, or to get stronger. My knowledge as a bodybuilder for over 10 years, did not hold as much truth as I thought.
Since November '16, I cut out all beef, then next I said "no more" to killing chickens and removed all dairy. Next was fish and lastly eggs. I am not only making a difference in saving these innocent helpless animals lives, I am kinder to the environment, my body and my wallet! I've lost weight and being Vegan costs about 40% less. Wanna experience veganism with me? I wrote up an example of my daily diet to help you get started.

Living as a Vegan is compassionate to both the animals and my soul. I would never personally shoot a cow in the head, chop off pigs tails or cut off the beaks from a baby bird, which are just a few of the brutal acts happening every day. Now I fully am removed from another person doing this on my behalf. I am no longer in denial that animals are suffering. Being Vegan means I have decided to live a lifestyle that does not support animal exploitation.
