Don't buy dried fruit. Limit yourself to a handful or two of nuts or seeds per day, and 1 or 2 pieces of fruit. Your cravings can be for a variety of reasons and will probably go away after a few weeks of healthy eating. Book: Engine 2 Diet Our bodies have what they consider a set weight; whatever they have gotten used to. Your mind triggers you to eat at that level; it takes at least a month to reset that. There is also a nutritional filter in our brain. Basically telling us to eat until we've gotten enough nutrition. Along with good mix of organic veggies, taking a good multi vitamin helps with this. Often we are simply thirsty, or our mouths want to be entertained. I like sipping on some filtered water with a splash of fresh lemon juice and lots of ice. Use an online water calculator to know if you are getting the right amount of water. Here are some other basics...Health basics: drink the right amount of water--use an online calculator, usually take a multi-vitamin, combine your food properly, eat 80% alkaline foods, exercise properly, avoid poisons (research fructose & aspartame, pesticides, gmos), look at getting the B12, electrolytes and organic sulfur you need, research the best and worst foods. Increase health and cut costs by eliminating junk, all store drinks, grains cooked with legumes are high in all essential amino acids, and soups for breakfast, and invest in organic veggies as much as possible. Electrolytes is one of the main keys, having the right balanced amounts. When you want more plant-based foods, here are some recipes.

I hope you give Exploring Life the best answer. but i have just a few things I'd like to add. You probably know this already, but you didn't mention it so, just to make sure we've touched all the bases. for everybody who wants to get all the nutrients and not gain weight, its important to exercise. And its even more important for vegans (since their food has a higher carb to protein ratio), and its even more important for vegans who don't want to gain weight and tone up (like you!) You really should be doing at least 150 minutes of exercise a week. Even more would be better. Just don't get obsessive. I love dried fruit. And nuts. And I too have inadvertently gained weight eating them. Absolutely necessary for us to ration them. I only buy one bag of dried fruit a week and one can of nuts a week. Even that might be too many but I go shopping every week and I just make sure to buy the smaller bags and cans. I also have a tendency to skip real fruit. so once i run out of the dried fruit I eat more real fruit. Although dried fruits and nuts are really good for us - the fruit is high on sugar and the nuts are high in fat. So they are not good "diet food". Also there is nothing irreplaceable in dried fruits and nuts - so if you feel you have to completely avoid them - that's probably ok.

Include more pulses and soy products, maybe a bit more sea salt in your diet... And distract yourself with other activities so you don't think so much about food. If you're truly hungry you will still eat and it's healthy. If you weren't really hungry but just bored, you will just forget about it.

It sounds like you're doing well! Are you still maintaining some appointments with your eating disorders counselor? Eating disorders can reappear, and it's wise to continue to keep some professional support.
