Please help..

Hi all..

Sorry to bother..

Please read my story..

I reached a point in my life that I starved myself everyday to play online games at the game center. Sometimes I played up to 10-24-48 hours consecutively without sleeping.

I was 15 y/o that time. Before, I weighed 140 lbs with a height of 5'8. Then, in 3-4 months, my weight dropped to 100 lbs. This weight had stayed for 3 months, then I cut the bad habit and regained weight. It didn't end just right there. There were also another points in my life when I returned to that bad habit, but not as severe as the first one.

I would like to describe the medical complications I feel right now as a 19 y/o boy who should've been in his prime of his life, but I'm afraid that all of u would feel annoyed of my wall of text.

It's just, was my weight at 100 lbs dangerous enough to-what some medical websites including Wikipedia claim that anorexia/eating disorder could-shrink/irreversibly damage the organs in my body? Including the heart, lungs, bones, and ultimately, the penis and brain..

Please help this 19 y/o boy of misery..

Hi "boy of misery",

Sorry to hear about your health loss. This is an issue that many young people are experiencing these days. A prolonged lack of food can be detrimental to your health but not nearly as bad as dehydration.

The human body is surprisingly resilient in recovering from past neglect or injury. To help your body overcome and heal the damage that was done make sure to try the following:
  • Drink plenty of water, start with 6-8 cups a day.
  • Get at least 8 hours of restful sleep per night.
  • Eat a diet high in good fats and vitamins (such as chicken, eggs, carrots and broccoli etc.)

If you do the above for a while your body will soon enter into a state of repair. In this state your body is working hard to fix any damage done to it, where as before it was only able to maintain basic functions for survival.

You will also be nutritionally deficient. Purchase a quality multi-vitamin at your local grocery store, it can take a while to replenish the essential vitamins your body needs so use them for at least 30 days.

Good luck and good health to you!

thanks for the advice..

But, i dont know.. I've hit the 100 lbs mark.. I googled this and found out that this weight was dangerously low for my height (5'8)..

I remember once, I didnt eat/drink/sleep for 2-3 days, I was just playing online 'first person shooter' games such as 'counter-strike', the one that pumped adrenalines. Then, I collapsed, fainted, when I was walking on the way home. I was still having a little consciousness that time though..

I know bout that human body's capability of healing itself and stuff.. But still, I was 100 lbs.. It's a Body Mass Index of 15 to 15.5..

Re: Please help..

HCG Diet protocol directs you always about the perfect diet. i love the way it works towards weight loss.The HCG eating plan is particularly restrictive through with donít just the number of calories you may consume per day, but what types of foods makes up many calories.
