30 Bananas a Day!

Hey guys..

I have been raw vegan for almost a year now. I was eating a handful of almonds or walnuts (soaked overnight) every day and I was tested for high trigylcerides! I stopped eating nuts completely but I was experiencing a LOT of cravings. I tried to eat a ton of dates for high calories. I would do well for 2-3 days but then I would start feeling voracious at dinner time and would end up ordering takeout (like a tub of guacamole, or avocado rolls sushi, baked potatoes, even junk food sometimes like vegan quasedilla). Off late, I have found that if I add one whole avocado to my night salad, I feel okay.

If one avocado a day too much fat? Did anyone experience similar issues? What are the healthiest fatty foods and what quantities can they be eaten in? I am thinking avocados, coconut meat (or shredded dried coconut when coconut meat is not available), or chia seeds.

As per cronometer, I get 4200-4500 calories and fat content of one avocado is 30 gm. I eat roughly 20 days and 10 bananas every day and different fruits for lunch and a large salad for dinner. I don't eat high fat anything else. My carbs/protein/fat ratio comes out to be 88/4/8. Can I start adding coconut meat or chia seeds to my diet? or should I switch things up by rotating the foods where I get my fats from?

Thanks!

Yogi.

Hi.  I am newly vegan so adjusting has been trial and error.  Fitness is my job so I exercise hard and need to re-fuel effectively and I also find that if you are exercising you do need more fat (in my opinion/experience).  I rely on avocados as it's natural, they taste amazing and add substance to a salad.  I also still eat french bread, which I know many people don't as they've cut out gluten/wheat but I find proper french bread toasted a great addition for me adding valuable carbs/starch to my salad or vegetable based meals.  So I will often slice an avocado and spread it on my toast with a few drops of tabasco or some lemon juice.  I think if you're craving avocado just have it as the alternatives such as nuts are higher in fat and dried fruit is hard on digestion. Frankly, don't beat yourself up over the avocado, just go for it! :)
