I have to admit that I'm suffering from "sticker shock" when it comes to the amount of calories this way of eating is recommending. I've had the whole "3500 cal in a lb and you have to eat at a deficit to lose weight" drilled into me for years. Also, I'm planning to start the HCRV lifestyle after Jan 1 and the thought of eating 10 bananas or 6 oranges in 1 sitting is making me feel like I'll be sick of eating so much of one thing.
Any advice?? thanks!!!
use cronometer.com and use how much is needed for your body nutrient and calorie wise. do not go hungry but no need to become a gluton.
That many bananas in a smoothie really isn't so hard.
Thanks... I was planning to make a smoothie for breakfast to help get all the fruit in.
I applied for an account with cronometer.com and apparently there is such a time difference they sent it to me and when I went to activate it it was already expired :-( hopefully I can get this figured out or use another site.
thanks for the replies :-)
Maybe start slowly. Add more fruits to your diet together with higher dense calorie foods. Eat as much as you feel is appropriate for the moment. You can eat less but you'll probably feel good about the diet but not GREAT. Feeling great is the aim when eating raw. Don't push yourself to something you don't feel you want to, yet.
Some people recommend eating more greens instead of more fruit. If you add more greens, you'll probably don't want and need that much fruit. It is partly about the nutrients too.
But i'm not going to promote that since it isn't the place to do so. But 3500 is a lot. Maybe too much. Depends on you activity levels right
