No weight loss?

    Hi Everyone. I've been reading the forums for a few weeks and was encouraged to join because of the wonderful feedback and supportive environment. I'm new to raw and had a question.

    I've been trying to move from a SAD diet to a vegan/raw diet over the past few weeks. I try to eat as raw as possible through lunch. A typical day includes a raw smoothie (fruit and water or almond milk, a banana and hemp powder) and fruit for breakfast (pineapple and mango, eaten separately), raw veggies and raw salad dressing for lunch (tomatos, 1/2 an avocado, peppers and zucchini), some raw nuts, and a for dinner either a smoothie (banana with almond butter) or eziekiel bread with tofu or a salad.

    I feel great and have a ton more energy. But no weight loss. Anyone else experience this? I've read many posts that talk about weight loss. I'm trying to eat as raw as possible for better health so the weight loss issue is not of utmost importance. But it would be nice to lose a few pounds.

    Thanks in advance for your response.

     Hi, pursegirl
    It can be a problem with a metabolism. I had this kind of problems with weight loss, I turned to the hormone clinic and they help me with all my problems. I can advice you Mayo Clinic to find a qualified doctor.

    Looks like too few calories and too much fat to me.  It wasn't until I stopped eating so many nuts, nut butters, oils, seeds, and avocados that my weight loss started.  I got into all this raw gourmet stuff and although tasty, was just too heavy.  Eating mostly fruits, greens, with an avocado here and there, or a few truly raw almonds is the only way I was able to lose weight without calorie restriction when I went raw before.  This time I'm going straight from omni to raw vegan, which has been rough.  So far...so good...first two weeks were evil, but now I'm starting to feel the benefits--specifically with energy.

    I agree with Rawvegandancer. I use avocado, nuts, coconut oil, etc to help maintain weight rather than for weight loss.

    Dear pursegirl, it's been a while since you wrote this post. I wonder if you finally lost some weight. As far as i can see from your description, it doesnt look like a metabolism problem at all. You don't lose weight because of eating avocado and nuts which are high caloried, but dont stop eating them! It would be unhealthy if you cut this fat intake. If you still would like to lose several pounds or kilogramms eating raw, try green juice diet for weight loss. You can do it just one day and every time you get hungry, just drink a green raw juice parsley with cabbage and apples, for example. If it turns out to be easy, extend it up to 3 days.

    If you want to lose weight, you have to do exercises regularly, eat healthy food, add low calorie volume to every meal and walk in the morning time. Drink coffee an hour before working out. You start to lose weight definitely by following this method.

    I would definitely recommend that you read about hormone therapy. This will help you solve your problems.
