Hope no empty calories are consumed, at that restriction you need to make every one count!

Why the quotes around celiac "disease"? Celiac is a disease

I've experimented with the food combining theory as an omni and saw no benefit. Maybe an individual thing?
Are you saying you're avoiding all grains?

Not your **** again. You still breathing? I left this forum once because of you, so deja vu with you.

You've got a good handle on things, it sounds like. I still make the "not-enough-calories mistake" sometimes, even after 26 years of veganism.

Although food-combining is a popular topic on various nutrition blogs and forums, there are no peer-reviewed studies supporting this concept. Unless a person has a digestive issue of some type, there's nothing wrong with eating different kinds of foods at the same meal.

Good to see you on the forum again.

Thanks! I am aware of what and how to eat to get me the nutrients on paper, but the thing is, I don't always feel like eating that much! As for omega 3 and calcium, I'd rather use flax and sesame seeds as they're about 3-10 times cheaper. Also, my diet can sometimes reach 50% fat - that's nothing I fear.

Thank you! I ain't eating oats, though. By the way, I've learned not to mix the opposite types of foods as they each require a different digestion which may lead to cancellation of digestive fluids or just make the food spoil while in the stomach.

Yeah I think it boils down to caloric intake, but as long as I don't feel weak and my strength doesn't decrease I could be a stick and not give a ****. By the way, I tend to fast in the mornings thus it's easy to eat less during the day.

And once again, thanks to both of you!

Emma JC It sounds like you are good at listening to your body and cutting out some of the wheat has been helpful and now that you are reading the Cronometer correctly you may be able to gain back some of the weight. I can imagine that being as tall as you are that your metabolism is probably quite high and more calories are needed to sustain you.

If wheat is an issue then how about more potatoes and sweet potatoes and alternative grains, as Jamie suggests. A easy veggie chili over boiled or boiled/then roasted root veggie is delicious and nutritious and filling... just as an example. Tahini drizzled on top and some avocado on the side could increase the fat content with all the fibre intact. Burrito bowls are also a great source of deliciousness and as many calories as you wish to pile in - a base of rice, then beans, then veggies, greens, herbs, avocado and topped with an amazing dressing. I learned to make them from watching High Carb Hannah.

Oh, and bananas.... so many great ways to eat them and having oatmeal in the morning, topped with bananas and berries and that can also be drizzled with tahini (the link above is a pic I posted here a couple of days ago).

All the best with bringing your body back to a healthy weight and fat content! Keep us up to date.

Jamie in Chile It sounds like going back to a regular use of cronometer might be helpful for you.

I would focus on trying to eat more food overall. Try and eat larger portions.

Try snacking on nuts. They are filling and have high fat, but it's considered healthy fat. As long as you consider yourself underweight, you could try snacking on nuts even if you don't feel hungry. Also walnuts are a good source of Omega 3 on a vegan diet, and almonds are a good source of calcium.

Try to avoid too many meals that are only fruit and veg, add some grains/legumes e.g. beans to these to make them more filling.

Good luck.

Skinny, but still losing weight

Yo! I've been skinny all my life. One and a half years ago I became vegan. In the first months of my veganism my weight was the highest it ever was in my life - 76kg (167lbs). Before veganism my weight was around 72kg. I'm around 6'3. Back then I calculated everything with Cronometer, so I know I ate 3k calories daily. Now, however, I weigh 67kg (147lbs). I don't really know why. The last I weighed this low was 6-7 years ago. My diet indeed is different, but I've been changing it all the time. The weight kinda started dropping after I felt ill and passed out, which, I believe, was due to overeating grains (binging on pasta and bread). I looked up symptoms and found out it could be celiac "disease". I haven't eaten any grains for two weeks at least now, and the stomach problems ceased. The weight loss, however, seems to continue. I'm not really worried, but I'm interested in your opinions as to what could be the cause of it? Yeah, maybe caloric intake. But maybe it's for the better as heard from Robert Cassar. It could be fat loss, it could be muscle loss, I dunno. I didn't know I had 5 spare kilos of fat, though! Anyway, has anyone else experienced weight loss even though while already skinny?

Edit:
Oh, ****. I just put my recent diet in Cronometer. It goes from 1000 - 2500 calories daily.
