Raw Teen: calories?

Hi everyone! Im a 16 year old newly raw [already] vegan. I wanted to know how many calories I should consume? I am a bit over 5'5 and weigh about 105 lbs. I am moderately active. Also if there are any other raw teens out there, any advice or tips about being raw would be great! Thank you!

    About 2000 calories should see you ok, dont forget about iodine when raw most do and think they can get from fruit. Eat some seaweeds a few times a week.

    Dont forget the b12 sublingual supplement, study recently i read showed raw vegans have higher risk of heart disease due to low b12 /high homocysteine.

  • Meee! I'm a raw teen. Definitely try making 'gourmet' raw foods to impress people and show off how awesome being raw is. I made a raw cake and everyone was like 'WOW, this is RAW?!". also, getting some friends to go vegetarian/vegan really helps going out and stuff. bring raw treats with you to the movies and stuff to snack on. :)

  • heeyyy!! raw teen hereee :D

    I have never worried about calories personally. If you just eat when you are hungry, lots of fresh fruit, veggies some avocado and nuts and stuff....calories are not that much of a concern. This is my personal experience..just thought I'd sharee :D
