My sister and I both have an eating disorder as a result of childhood trauma. She was anorexic… and I almost ate myself to death by eating too much. I suggest that you get with a good specialist (psychologist) who can help you deal with pre/post verbal experiences as a child and beyond. You might also look for a vegan nutritionist.

You need to learn about the “rule of ten.” You should not eat less than ten times your ideal weight. If you eat fewer than this number of calories, your body reacts by slowing metabolism which makes it even more difficult to lose weight over the long term. As an athlete, you will want to up your caloric intake along with your activity. You need high quality fuel which is best met by eating a low-fat, whole foods, vegan diet. You can eat a lot more food (bulk) if you eat the right foods. Here is what you need to eat:

+ Legumes and a few nuts. Do not over do the nuts or eat too much oil. Legumes (beans) provide essential proteins. 2+ cups

+ Whole grains. My favorite is brown rice. Avoid processed grains like white bread because these have a high GI. Processed foods often have ingredients that are harmful. 3+ cups.

+ Vegetables, including leafy green vegetables. Learn to make a green smoothie. Recipes are on the Internet. Eat a variety of whole fresh raw vegetables and steamed vegetables. Leafy greens are important. 3+ cups.

+ Fruits. These can have calories, but they are digested slowly over time and provide you with essential nutrition. 3+ cups

+ As a vegetarian, make sure to take B12 supplements.

+ Get at least 15 minutes of sunshine on your skin each day so that you can produce vitamin D. Otherwise take a supplement for this.

Avoid or minimize the following:

+ Dairy and milk and whey.
+ Eggs.
+ Meat
+ Fish
+ Do not take C supplements because leafy greens provide this in much better (more complete) way. You can over do vitamins.

These are not required for a healthy diet contrary to the consensus reality. Look at the work of T. Colin Campbell and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

I guarantee you that others will follow the consensus reality when it comes to nutrition (eggs, meat, dairy). Do your own homework.
