Hey guys! I'm following a 100% raw vegan diet since 2 months, and I eat everyday 1500 calories (maybe sometimes I eat more, but I usually don't eat more than 2000). Yeah, I know that Freelee and others recommend to eat at least 2500 calories everyday but I think this would be too much for me because I'm quite sedentary (I'm a student and I spend most of the time at the computer or doing my homework and I workout just 40-60 minutes 4-5 times every week).
Since I started this diet I try to keep my fat intake low but I'm always craving for fatty foods, especially avocados and coconut meat! Most of the time I find really difficult to resist and I eat more fats than I should. The result is that I feel bad and guilty. Honestly I can't figure out why I have these cravings. It's really frustrating. I'd be glad to have some help :)
eat what you crave. This is your body and we crave what we need.
Just like a heroin addict craves heroin, just like a caso-morphine addict craves cheese.
Just like a undereater craves dense calorie sources (fat).
fats are essential for the brain to a certain degree, heroine is not.
You are simply not eating enough carbs. 2500 is the bare minimum for ladies, read more about how to do rawtil4 or HCRV here: Aloha to 30BaD's Welcome Wagon!
