30 Bananas a Day!

hey guys, this is my first post ^_^

i've always been a big eater, not leaving much on my plate.

when i was 16 to a few days before my 22 bday, i was a binge eater. massive binger and then faster. i'm talkin' weight gain of a pound of day minimum from fat (most likely) when i would binge. by eating 'disordered' i mean a 5000 calorie friday, a 5000 calorie saturday, and a 500 calorie sunday - monday - ... thursday, consistently. by binge i mean on junk. my friends would say i'm still bingin' today, but i would say i'm not. i haven't felt as alive and guilt free since i was 15 :-) plus a binge in 2006 would be a pound of cookie dough, a jar of peanut butter, a bag of salty chips and a bag of trail mix, for example.

between those years, i cycled between weights, with my lowest being around 98 pounds to my highest being around 185 pounds. my height is 5'3 and a half. 

my 22 bday, september 13 2012 was my last 'binge' on crap, and my last day of inconsistent eating. since then i haven't fasted or overeaten. from that day to mid june of 2014, i consistently ate ~1800 calories average, with a majority (save about 2 months last summer) of the time being high carb, low fat vegan. my sources of carbs were legumes, potatoes, squashes, all vegetables, all fruits, and on occasion fatty fruits.

starting mid june of 2014, i started to smash in the carbs i craved. 2500 minimum. i tried calorie restricting (sticking with 2000) in early july but quit that about a week later.

my appetite is large, like i said. i have no trouble getting 2500 minimum. 

but it seems that most high carb vegan women i have seen eat about 2500-3000 calories daily. these inspirational women, with high fitness, don't seem to eat past 3500. i'm talkin' freelee, emily from bite size, sasha from rice n raw, anji bee, kristina, megan elizabeth, rawvana...

for august of 2014, these are my stats:

eating between 2700-3000 cals a day: 4 times in august

3000-3500: 8

3500-4000: 8

4000-6500: 12

i eat a high carb low fat cooked vegan life style, some times raw till 12, and wonder, am i eating too much? i know they say eat as much as you care for, but maybe i over eat?

today i ate:

breakfast: a 5 banana + 1 T sugar smoothie

breakfast 2: 1 lb medjool dates (~30), small head iceberg, ~8 small stalks celery

lunch: 1lb medjool dates (~30)

lunch 2: small head iceberg with 2lb red potatoes (~10 small) (lil' sugar/cumin/cinnamon/paprika)

dinner: 3lb red potatoes (~15 small)

i am a full time graduate student alongside workin' about 20 hours a week minimum in an elementary school and preschool.

i cycle about 4-5 days a week, with some light calisthenics each day.

too i drink about 3 liters a day minimum, sleep about 8-9 hours a day minimum, and rarely sit on my bum. i have too much energy ^_^

yet i have gained about 10-15 pounds since june of 2014. not awesome, what can i do?

when i started mid june i was ~113 pounds. now i estimate i'm about 125, maybe 130.

i was ~115 before my bingin' started at age 16, and leveled at about 115 when i stopped binging ~2012-june 2014.

any comments would be helpful, or if not, that's okay too.

have a good one ^_^

Thank u! Honored you guys were here to help ^_^  

This week calories have been leveling ~2500-3000 a day.  Never restricting, just not eating all the food in my cupboards.

I get slightly stressed if I sense my body is hungry and in need of calories (Like during the middle of my preschool teaching...), because I know it will switch to storing fat, the way I trained it in the past... I try to have juices and dried fruits with me at work and keep a steady flow of carbs in me.

I'm not sure what the fall season will look like, but I feel I am less bloated this week, I'll keep going :-)
