Howdy all! I'm sure this subject has been touched on here in the past. I *love* fasting and light eating - was raw vegan for years and can't wait to get back to it again. One of the reasons I…Continue

@MarkalarkFruits, my personal favorites-> (bananas, dates, pineapple, watermelon, apples, and oranges) and greens, my personal favorites-> (spinach, kale, bok choy, and broccoli). I also occasionally have potatoes and black rice. IMO adequate calories and enough rest will do it regardless of what specific foods you eat.
@adam i rarely eat overt fats and my muscle recovery is fast.
anyone want to be in a strongman competition or see one, I'll be competing in Huntington Indiana's YMCA Heritage Days Strength Challenge on June 23, 2013. http://huntingtony.org/programs/for-healthy-living/sports-recreatio...
@Chris HeymanI tried doing floor presses with my barbell but chickened out when the stand I had the bar on started to wiggle. I just do plyo push ups and dips between some barrels I have in my yard.
Yoga is awesome! I need to start doing it again, I just felt so good after it. I'll throw in a session or two per week and see how that works out.
I'm always hungry too. It seems that no matter how much raw fruit and veggies I eat I can't stay full for more than 2 hours. If I eat raw all day I can consume an upward of 5000 calories (and still be a little hungry) but if I have a cooked vegan meal in the afternoon I feel good with 3000 calories. I have daily weight fluctuations, probably due to water retention? Lets say I eat 100% raw fruits and veggies, I'll wake up around 2-3lbs lighter than usual. With cooked food for my last meal, I will wake up at my "normal" weight. Not sure how that works out seeing how I eat more calories eating raw, probably does have to do with digestion and absorbtion.
Thanks for that, good to know!
Well if you are feeling good and seeing progress then thats what counts.
I am so happy to hear that! Thank-you for the input.
I am always hungry though. I am new, so perhaps my digestion is not as good yet and I do actually need that amount in order for my body to absorb nutrients. Lets say I only assimilating 50% of what I am eating right now. 50% of 4000 is 2000 calories. Who knows, but the bottom line is that I am always hungry right now. Did anyone else experience this when they first went fruit based. The cooked potato meal I am eating at night while my bananas ripen is the only thing that fills me and keeps me full. Probably b/c it is hard to digest. Butttt I would love to hear what people have to say.
idk about all that massive amount of calories 4k+ unless your burning that much. because you can only put on so much muscle mass. i dont think that just because you eat more your going to put more mass on any faster. im 5'8 @ 145 so 3k-3.5k calories is good because i know im not burning that much.
Karl Ess is a low fat vegan bodybuilder and i think he said he eats around 3k-3.2k calories hes the biggest lowfat vegan bodybuilder i have seen so far.
Oh... you guys are lower than I would have thought. But it's working for you guys so that is great. Once I get an ID, from the University I am visiting, and then a gym membership w/ said ID, I am starting up again. Just got back from a trip and then had end of semester before that. Have not had a real good routine for 2 years. So frustrating.But about your calories, that is encouraging to me b/c I was thinking to weight lift and put on mass I would need 5,000+. I am only planning on weightlifting 30-40 mins a day 6 days a week. So then I should be fine at 4,000 increasing slowly as I put on lean muscle mass. I did not want to have to eat more b/c it gets expensive.
