I am not 100% raw. More like 75% raw but I try to eat as much raw as possible. Usually it ends up being 80-85%. The most cooked food I do eat, is a bowl of oatmeal sometimes in the afternoon. Then I might have some soup or cooked potato or a vegan taco (yum) for supper but always with a large salad. I am trying to skip the oatmeal though as I do not like the way it drags me down. I usually do not have it that often anyhow.
At any rate, I am underweight. I have been vegan for some months and I did a juice fast through the month of January. I recently started to eat more things like Avocados and put olive oil in my dressings and such to increase my fats. I have a recipe I posted for coconut milk which tastes better that dairy, honestly, way better. BUT, coconut milk is very high in saturated fats which I understand I need some. A thought was that I could add a couple TBSP shredded coconut to my salads as I used to do that and I like the way it tastes but I already ad about a 1/4 a cup sunflower seeds on my salads which are high in fats and vitamin E and I also eat about three to four large avocados a week. I found out when I entered all my foods that I usually eat online, that I was only at about 1800 calories and I should be eating more. So, i kndof started doing that. I am also exercising more. Mainly working on cutting wood and walking which builds muscle and that is weight.
Any tips? Am I doing the right thing When will I start to gain weight?? Should I add anything to my diet? Will eating more raw foods help me gain weight?? Sorry for all the questions but any tips would be appreciate.
