What I eat in a day after 6 Years on a Low-fat raw vegan diet.

I know this is a long time coming, since I’ve been getting requests for a while now, but here it is finally – My very first ‘What I eat in a day’ video vlog!

In this video I include some information about how I combine my low-fat raw vegan diet with the structure that has helped me so much to heal my addictive/compulsive eating in Bright Line Eating.

I also talk about the best way to store cucumbers, if you like buying them in bulk like I do 🙂

And I walk you through how I plan my food using Cronometer and show you how I’m meeting ALL my nutrients needs by eating an abundance of raw fruits and veggies.

I’d love to hear what you think of my first What I eat in a day video! 🙂 🙂  so please comment below.

May all beings be happy and FREE (particularly of food and weight obsession)!!

  1. Great vlog! Loved it. Loved to see how well you’re looking and the food you eat. Also loved all the tips you gave. Thank you. Looking forward to more.

  2. Dear Anthea,

    As always incredible informative, you are a real (raw)foodie, but then that’s probably the one thing, which I would like to add (to your eating regime)

    It was through you I got in touch with Tyler Tolman. One way or the other he knows something about fasting and I just think, that any proper eating regime must have this balance between eating and fasting. That’s all!

    Keep up the good work

    yours Hans

    1. I absolutely aree, Hans. I’ve done some short 3-4 day water fasts in the past and they’ve been great, but I haven’t been able to manage the overeating that happens afterwards. Now I feel more confident that with my BLE and raw plan I can manage that. In time I hope to be able to report on how that goes, but for now I’m enjoying the 15 hour stretch between my dinner and breakfast! 🙂

  3. You’re looking really good! And it all looks so good too. But I’m just a beginner at raw foods and having problems eating just 1500 calories per day! I usually don’t quite make it but getting closer! And I’ve lost 13 pounds so far. I have another 30 to 40 pounds to lose. I also see some health issues improving so I know I’m doing the right thing for me!

    1. Thanks so much, Cecile. I’m feeling great. Sounds like you’re doing great. Well done on your 13 pound weightloss. Woohoo!

  4. Anthea, I loved your vlog and have a couple questions. First, what is a Cronometer? And, how do you evaluate the nutrients you are getting in your diet? How did you find out that you need 36 grams of protein a day? OK, that was 3 questions. Thanks for all you information.

    1. All the best athletes track their calories, so why shouldn’t we, Yulia? Seems to work very nicely. Hope to come visit you in July Yulia! 🙂

  5. Hi Anthea!! I just have to ask, as a fellow BLE’er, how do you do with the almond flour? It doesn’t trigger cravings, etc? Or are you just using miniscule amounts? Great job on your vlog, keep it up!

    1. Great question, Caitlyn! The recipe actually called for rice flour, which I would never touch. Almond flour is really just ground almonds, so not really flour. That was the first time I’d tried it while on BLE and it didn’t seem to trigger anything at all. I had it two nights in a row, because I made a batch of the cauliflower and then haven’t had any in a week since that day. So I guess it wasn’t a problem. I noticed though that the combination of spices and fat from the almonds was a little More-ish, but I’m wondering if it was just that it was novel for me. But sometimes when things are really tasty like that they can be triggering even if not sugar or flour.

    1. Unstoppable, Zoey, that’s what it takes. It’s not about how many times you fall off. For me that has been more than I can count. What matters is getting back on.

  6. What a wonderful video…..I had just eaten, and it made me hungry all over again. But more than that, it made me feel so grateful for our beautiful fruits and vegetables and the awesomeness of a LFRV lifestyle. So happy for you and your success and your sharing so openly…you are helping change our world for the better!

  7. Hi Anthea! I loved your video and you are looking so good!! You look very radiantly healthy! I found it very helpful to see what you eat in a day and about the chronometer!! Really enjoyed this video and would love it if you made more, I would watch them for sure. Thanks so much for making it!! Have a wonderful day!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  8. Anthea,
    Impressive! Mind if you tell me the total oz quantities from each food group, total calories, and % of each macronutrient? 🙂

    1. Thanks Huda. That info is in the video. I write each day’s macronutrient ratio down the bottom of my food journal log on the bottom left. It’s also in the cronometer screenshot at the end of the video 🙂

  9. Thank you for sharing your food plan with us – very valuable information. Could you tell me at what times you eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, as I was wondering how you get the 15 hour fast between breakfast and dinner?

    1. Hi Julie,
      I eat breakfast usually about 8-8.30am, Lunch about midday and dinner from 4.30-5pm. That’s how I get 15 hours in 🙂

  10. Hi Anthea,

    I noticed your B12 said 0% on the chronometer. Do you take a supplement for B12? If so, what do you recommend?

    Thanks!

  11. I have appreciated your blog and have just watched what you eat in a day. I’m surprised that you eat Iceberg lettuce as it lacks hardly any nutritional value.

  12. Hi Anthea

    Delighted that you’ve found a way to eat well and be in control and at peace with your food.

    Wishing you wellness xx
