Good morning from Scotland

Postby k1ngtubby » Tue Feb 28, 2012 11:40 am

Hello everyone,


Just recently joined the forum from Scotland.

Having been a vegetarian for many years, I appear to have become vegan almost by accident. I have never enjoyed milk so opt for soya or oat milk instead - and due to a real commitment to improving my fitness I have stopped consuming all ofhter diary products and processed foods.

Hope to be able to use this forum to get some advice, and motivation from others about how to continue in my (small) quest for improved health and fitness - without resorting to stereotypical advice from the mainstream magazines - eat steak, venison, chicken etc!!!!

Thanks for the welcome.


I'm from Galston, in Ayshire (well live there at least).


Fitness wise - years ago I heavily into training in martial arts, with a fair bit of free weights for conditioning - I had an excellent training partner (he was a personal trainer in Glasgow so essentially got the benefit of his knowledge and experience for free).

I then got married and allowed all the hard work slowly morph into chilling on the couch, eating dominos and drinking copious amounts of beers!!!

Dropped a fair bit of weight so far (5 foot 10 - started at 96kg - now 84kg) but keen to improve my fitness goals as I seems to have hit that wall that I'm sure we're all familiar with.

I now feel as thought I go into the gym, headphones on, and go through the motions.


On here for some dietary / fitness advice - maybe a bot of motivation and help motivate others.

Haha! Small world indeed. Grew up in Kilmarnock.


Train at the Galleon. Just like to get my head down and get through my work out.

Just back actually. Knackered. About to sit down and work out some sort of training log, as even though I'm losing weight - I feel like I'm just idling along with the some routine.

Where do you train?

I done work experience in the Galleon for a bit towards the end of last year! It's not bad in there

I'm in at the weightlifting club in the Shortlees school, been there for about 16 months. Pretty good!
