"I wouldn't overeat on nuts if I was you.  Even though they are listed as having loads of calories and fat you only absorb a small portion of that because of how easily they just pass through.  I'd focus on having more protein…"

Do I need to gain weight to get my period back?

My last experience with this was 1.5 years ago. I had lost some weight and as a result my period disappeared. I wasn't underweight or anything, but I wasn't eating any fat and was over exercising. I decided to eat 3000+ calories a day plus eat an avocado a day to try and get my period back. Fifteen pounds and two months later I got my period back, but I was unhappy with myself. It took me six months to lose the fifteen pounds plus an extra 10-15 lbs more. I cut out fat again and was training…See More

Being a "normal" vegan...

I've been on and off RT4 for around 2 years. I tried the Potato diet (lasted not even a day), the Starch Solution (I gained so much weight on this, but I was also still "smashing in the carbs"), and I've tried raw vegan (2 days, guys...2 days...).I decided to go back to RT4 in the fall of 2016, but instead of eating "unlimited calories", I ate until I was satisfied, I focused more Vegetables, and since March 2017 I've given up on white potatoes, rice, soy products, pasta, and bread. And I don't…See More

I went pesceterian in the fall of 2014 because I didn't really like the taste of meat, also my sister was a pesceterian and I thought it was interesting. By the spring of 2015 I was a vegetarian, almost vegan except for eggs. By April of 2015, I was a committed vegan and started researching the lifestyle to get a better understanding. The reason I made the transition was a mix of health and ethical reasons, and I watched several documentaries after making the switch (around July 2015). I found RT4 right after going vegan and was able to maintain the lifestyle for several months, but colder weather and lack of willing parental support pushed me to drop RT4 (I remained vegan, of course) and go more Starch Solution. Unfortunately, I had missed my period for half the year, my skin was dry, and my running was being impacted by inadequate nutrient intake, so I had to reduce exercise and eat higher fat and more calories. Thus, by Spring 2016 I had gained almost 20 pounds and was mildly depressed. I was training for the marathon at the time, so I transitioned back into RT4 and by July/August I was down 10 pounds. I lost my period again (it had come back during the Spring), but instead of ditching RT4, I increased my caloric intake and cut back on the intensity of my runs (not the distance). I maintained my weight and got my period back within three months. However, two months later I lost it once again (January 2017).

I ran a marathon in May 2017 with a time of 3 hours 41 minutes, a PR for me.

I've been seeing a nutritionist who has me incorporating a whole foods plant based protein powder into my day, and I've recently started eating more fats again. Usually 2 tbsp of a nut butter per day. In fact, between two days, I've eaten an entire avocado after going without one for almost 1.5 years. Fat will not make you fat.

*My reason for upping my fat intake to 10-15% is because I've realized that the heart is fat and muscle, and without enough fat in the diet the body will break down muscle, so it could break down your heart. That's scary, and as an aspiring ultra runner, I need to eat more fat so that my body doesn't break down my heart. I need my heart...
Oh, and my stupid freaking period hates me and I need it to come back.

I do not eat salt or sugar(unless it's in my darn nut milk), oil, animal products (duh), and I avoid all processed foods except molassases. oh, and i don't eat potatoes or white rice. Personal preference...
