Guest Cindy Posted September 5, 2014 Report Share Posted September 5, 2014 Hello, I read your articles and saw the video conference at the Milken Institute and I would love to start CR. I see that CR without Mulnutrition is really the traditional way of eating in my country of origin, Taiwan, where everybody eats moderately until 80% full. I am 33, 166cm and 57kgs. I have no idea how much I should be eating, but according to Cronometer I need 1340 calories a day. Can this be trust-worthy? I have difficulties to know exactly what to eat on a vegan diet with my calories, and I am not sure if I am calculating correctly... basically I have a really hard time eating only 1340... I wonder if you have any tips for me to get my calorie intake lower. I used to be bulimic and had binge and purging episodes, I have the purging aspect pretty much in control now, I no longer eat to throw up...but I feel immense guilt if I think I ate something I shouldn't or too much, but every meal I feel I eat too much. If I try to eat less I get cravings between meals and end up eating more. So I feel I am going around a circle of failure, there is no way out. I have been vegan for 1 year now and vegetarian for 8 years. I rarely use oil and dislike salt. In August 2013 I started experimenting with the 80/10/10 diet and the Raw Till 4 diet but they don't work for me and I gained 7 kgs. Now I eat Dr. McDougall's diet since 2 months but have not lost any weight. I know I feel my best at 49kgs, and I just want to lose these 7 kgs I gained on experimenting with 80/10/10 and Raw Till 4, because I love to run and my performance has decreased a lot. I have a lot of difficulties eating smaller portions because my stomach has expanded so much from 80/10/10, and it's hard to satiated nowadays. Any tips on that? I would love to be your test subject in the university, but I live in Switzerland. I would appreciate any tips you have to help me with your program, because I truly believe CR without malnutrition is the best way to get rid of my food fixations and achieve optimum heath and longevity. Thank you so much. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
