30 Bananas a Day!

I came back from having a body metabolic assessment just recently and I was told that my body was running just under 1250 calories a day.

I guess it explains why even though i exercise 3-4 times a week, I find it difficult to build tone and definition as the body is trying to preserve as much fat as possible because of the lack of calories I consume.

I was so shocked considering I thought I was eating so much. I find by the time my stomach stops bloating, it's supposed to be meal time. I would appreciate it if someone could give me some tips to up my calories.I want to know how to do this without having to sacrifice my desire to maintain a low fat vegan diet.

LOL great minds think alike ;-)

If you aren't already, you might want to look into using cronometer to track your calories on a daily basis. That will help you track your progress,

Smoothies are a great way to up calories, especially when using calorie-dense fruits such as bananas and dates.  Once date season rolls around, look into Datorade (dates blended with water). The following video by 30BaD member MelissaMixedUp is mostly targeted at those who want to lose a lot of weight, but has several good tips for upping carb calories on low fat raw vegan diet:

get up at 6 am with the sun so you have more time to eat and burn calories during daytime to jump start your metabolism 

eat dates  banana / date smoothie is the classic way to up your calories
