so i went vegan aug. 9th, 2015 and i weighed around 112-114 ish.
during late august until early february i was in a rigorous swim schedule, meaning every morning i would swim 2 hours a day and every saturday compete in swim meets.
during this time i ate a lot bc i burned a lot of calories each day. honestly i thought i would lose weight when transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, but instead i put on about 5 lbs ;-;..
i'm not sure if this weight was from muscle because of my swim routine, or if it was from fat.. being 117-119 really upsets me because i have been around 110's for around 3 years..
i also noticed that my abs weren't as defined as they used to be when i wasn't vegan. i used to be very lean and have little fat on my stomach, but now my tummy is a kind of soft and it makes me insecure.
how can i lose this weight?
what kinds of foods should i be eating?
how many calories should i consume in a day?
( i'm 5'5, age 16)
*also swim team is over so i'm rarely exercising, i just ice skate, rollerblade, and do the occasional ab workout,
( maybe someone could give me a workout routine??)
From my understanding, the only reason a person gains weight (except for medical reasons) is due to eating too many calories. It would help to know what types of food you are eating.
I know they avoided overeating things like tomatoes, bread, pasta, potatoes, things that were high in calories and sodium. But I also know they were both cutting at that time.
It happened to me as well, I took 10 kg in 1 month after going vegan !
