I'm interested to see what people have to say about this topic. Most non- 80/10/10'ers would immediately try to bash this into the ground.
I am sixteen years old. I have never had a period and have extremely small breasts--so pathetic that it is almost impossible for me to find an actual bra that has a small enough cup-size. Double-A is not small enough. I have large hands and feet (anywhere from a 10W to an 11 in women's; I usually wear men's shoes because they fit better for whatever reason), and I'm 5 feet, 4 inches tall--an average height, but my mom's side of the family is average and my dad's side is tall, and I'm pretty sure that I've got more of my dad's genes in that area, because of my shoe size--not that that ensures anything.
If you read my profile, you'll see that I have an eating disorder (anorexia) in my relatively recent past, during which I was at a dangerously low weight (this eating disorder, when it was still this active, lasted one or two years). This, in addition to me (assumingly) being a naturally late bloomer (even before the disorder, I was way behind the other girls in middle school), was very likely caused by the malnutrition. I don't doubt that.
BUT, it has been more than seven months since I came out of treatment. I might just be impatient, but I'm seriously worried about my development (being taller would be great, but obviously it's not an absolute must)--that I'll never be able to have children. I'm worried that my body might not be getting everything that it needs to grow, or worse--that it has been permanently stunted (I'm hoping for the first one!!!)
So, enough of all that rambling personal information: what my question is is this: What do you think of adolescent (and child) development on this lifestyle? Should I be getting more protein and fat, and/or certain vitamins and minerals, and/or should I just be eating more? I'm already working on gaining weight, at 3500-3900 calories per day. (I weigh around 102 pounds, if that sort of information is useful.) I'm almost certain that it's possible to raise a child on a largely fruitarian diet, since that was humans' original diet (before we screwed it all up). But, like at infancy (with mother's milk), might the 80/10/10 ratio have to be skewed a bit? I eat overts every day (a serving of almonds or walnuts or an avocado) and usually get about 5-6% protein and 6-8% fat. My calcium is usually okay (at LEAST 50%, usually higher, sometimes in the nineties), and so is iron (although maybe less so?). I don't know how much those have to do with growth, but I'm mentioning them just in case. Has anyone ever actually succeeded in raising a child on this kind of diet, I wonder?
I just want to make sure that I'm not doing any harm to my body. Feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)
