Calorie Struggles

March 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

One major struggle I’m having with my transition to a raw vegan diet is that I feel like I’m not getting enough calories.  I know this is mostly my stomach being used to heavier calorie rich foods.  In order to get the same amount of calories I have to eat A LOT of veggies and my stomach just can’t fit them all in!

The last couple days I’ve been constantly hungry.  It is not unusual for me to have a week of constant hunger and then a week in which I have very little interest in food at all.

I’ve been relying on hummus and whole grains this week as they fill me up.  My husband wanted meatballs for supper so I warmed up some falafels for myself.

I’ve also been doing a lot of reading and research lately.  I’ll bring that to you later this week.
