30 Bananas a Day!

I'm a 17 year old girl. I'm 6'3 and weigh 70 kg. I have been vegan for a month and a half.
I play competitive basketball 5 days a week. Have soccer matches every now and then. I train crossfit 5 days a week. Bike 15 - 20 km one day a week. Eat an average of 2500-3000 cal a day.
My main source is dates and bananas and dried figs. I usually eat raw till 4. Where I eat potatoes or rice and veggies with spices. I drink 3-4 liters of water a day.

From everything I have read; I should be losing weight. I know it takes time. I'm not saying y am I not at my perfect body I'm just saying y am I exactly the same or even gaining?

1.5 months is not a long time...be patient

Like I said there should be change; maybe not huge but a change

You don't notice any change at all? How are your mood, energy, endurance, strength? No difference at all? 

Also, what about your hair, nails, skin etc? Your digestion? 

There are many things that start to heal once you go vegan and start raw 'till 4. Maybe you don't lose weight because your body is busy healing other stuff in your body. 

And also, how much sleep do you get? That is really important. 

Remember, weightloss shouldn't be the goal, but more like a "bonus" of having perfect health after a few years. :) 

Your body doesn't agree..


Ya I sleep at 10-11 and sleep for 8-9 hours and actually my energy is awful nw I'm always feeling sluggish and faint I get dizzy a lot now even though I'm ingesting more iron than before. Digestion is a bit better(used to always be painfully bloated) nw I'm just gassy sometimes not all the time.havent noticed any difference in hairs nails or skin ? Just had my period so not sure about mood because all I remember is being passed if u know wat I mean :D and I'm out of breath way faster than before so I'm guessing endurance was affected?
I tested eating chicken again just as an experiment but like I thought I got a huge painful bloat so whether I lose weight with this or not I'm sticking with it I guess I have no other choice :D
Try eating more whole fruits (fresh dates and figs not dried.)
I eat fresh dates but fresh figs are very expensive here in canada :/ haven't eaten them in a while though

You're very young and VERY active.  I'm 22 and not nearly as active as you are yet I also eat 2,500-3000kcal a day.  I'm not an expert but I really think you need to eat more.  Also, make sure you get some good veggies into your diet if you haven't already been.  One last thing to try is having your b12 levels checked in the near future, in case you decide to stick with this lifestyle.  You will probably benefit from b12supplements.  Watch Freelees video about it here:


Most important thing, eat more!!

It's just that I used to eat a max of 1600 cal do for me this is already insane but I will try to add more maybe 3000-3500 from nw on :D
