Do you have any Companion Animals?

None at the moment, but I'm an animal lover!

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I have just recently decided to become a vegetarian for once and for all. I quit red meat several months ago due to seeking a healthier diet, but after watching several documentaries about all the animal cruelty in the world today and about how we eat the worse possible food, I have decided to change into a better self. It's been pretty hard, I'm not going to lie! Most of my friends are still meat lovers and they think I'm either crazy or I won't be able to stay this way for very long. So I decided to expand my friendship horizon to a new level and I'm seeking to meet people who share the same interests as I do.

How do you define your lifestyle? (eg. vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, etc.)

I'm currently Vegetarian, but I'm transitioning into Veganism and hopefully very soon I will be 100% Vegan. July 12, 2013 Update: I have fully converted 100% into a vegan diet and I could't be any happier! I not only feel a lot more energetic and healthier than ever before but I also take big pride on my new diet and try to tell as many people as possible! Being a vegan is a lot more complex than I ever imagined. It's not just about what you eat, but also about how you become more conscious about animal exploitation as a whole! For instance given up on everything that includes animal byproduct such as leather for example. This is another big step I'm currently working on. (The hardest stage of becoming 100% vegan in my opinion).

What interests you in a vegan diet?

Healthier life and animal welfare.

Introduction

Hi everyone! My name is Andre and I just recently decided to become a vegetarian (Going Vegan soon). It's been the best thing I did in my life however, I feel like a fish out of the water since all my friends are still meat eaters.
