Re: URGENT ! Recovering Anorexic :Why am I Gaining Weight with LESS than 700 Calories ???
Well, any time you increase your calories when you have been drastically undereating, you will gain weight. I mean, you body wants and needs to put on weight, so any little calorie increase will probably make you gain, but I doubt you are gaining as rapidly as you think and I am 99.9% sure that most of it is water weight. Once you start to eat 700, then 800, then 900, then 1000 calories a day, you body will SETTLE at a healthy weight and stop gaining,but right now it is desperate to put on weight. Have your periods stopped?
