so my long-story-short is I’m 32 years old, I weigh 188lbs, I’m 6’7” tall. Basically I’m super tall and super skinny. I have been depressed for a long time and recently changed my life to try and start feeling better (along with therapy). What I’ve started is eating vegan, Whole Food plant based, with zero processed sugar (I was using fatty sugary foods addictivly to feel better). I also haven’t done any exercise in a long time, and last time I was regularly active was 8th grade baseball. I started doing daily calisthenics and cardio, which is why my calorie count is high. So I’ve been using the chronometer iOS app to track my calories daily and see my needed intake. I’m trying to gain weight so I selected that option within the app. After inputting my body info, and my daily workout, the app says I need to consume 3,400 calories per day?!?!?! Back when I was eating double bacon cheese burgers this was easy... this is an insane amount of food as a vegan. And I think I’ve been under eating most of the last 50 days. I started using chronometer about 5 days ago and even if I try really hard to hit thst mark I haven’t (the best was 3,100). The last few days I’ve gotten around 3,000 but that is with many handfuls of nuts and a 2-3 in between snacks with fruit and peanut butter on a rice cake. Not a lot of healthy greens. I feel like I’m eating a lot of sugar (Natural from fruits and stuff) and nut butter and nuts just to bump up my calories. It doesn’t necessarily feel healthy, although this might just be in my head. But I feel like eating lots of whole veggies is a problem because they fill me up but have VERY LITTLE calories. I mean I had 200g of Brussel sprouts yesterday and that was only 70 calories! Yesterday I had about 1,800 calories of nuts, grains and peanut butter. How do others keep their calorie counts high on a vegan diet? How do you get enough veggies at the same time? Is lots of nuts, grains, peanut butter and fatty foods like avocado good to have daily???
