I have been 50 to 100% raw for approx. 3 months now. I want to lose approx. 20 lbs and usually, any attempts on my part to lose weight are very easy and I lose weight quickly. However since going raw I'm not losing any weight.
I want to know if anyone knows of any resources that may help me track my calories on a raw diet or will give me sample daily raw menus and quantities. I diet best when I have a set plan or menu of what to eat each day. I just want to knock out this 20 lbs and then I won't need to worry about calorie counting as weight gain is normally not an issue for me, the only time I have gained unwanted weight has been after child birth.
I am not sure what might be sabotaging my diet right now because normally a vegan diet would have me dropping lbs like crazy, however I have never gone raw before now and apparently something is not quite right. I drink lots of green juice and do at least 2 green smoothies a day. I am also vegan.
Please help as I'm not used to carrying any additional weight and if I can't get rid of it on the raw diet I'm going back to eating meat and cooked foods, which I don't want to do. I don't want to lose my raw glow :-). I eat salads, raw vegan smoothies, green juices, and very small amounts of whole grains a few times a weeks. I also take flax seed oil, fish oil capsules (not stopping either) and some olive oil on my salads, vegan yogurt, raw nuts and l do eat lots of bananas and avocados as they are the only things that feel me up, I'm a tall woman that works out a lot and I need something of substance to keep me going.
