Re: want to put on weight

You need a hug and I am sending you one!
To put on weight you must increase the amount of food you eat. However, you say you have several issues. Why do n't you ask a doctor who is on line as we speak? Isn't that better?

Re: want to put on weight

Hi there

I was just like you did not know what to eat or nothing. but mine was because I wanted to abide by the 'healthy way to gain weight rule'. I had to do everything perfect and I searched everywhere for a guideline, a clue anything to show me what so called 'perfect' was.. but everywhere told a different story, different set of rules.. so I decided to do it my way the way I could say yeah, I can manage that.

You should sit down with some paper and a pen and write down the foods you normally eat, but also the foods you are willing to try. Then using your list make up a plan of what you would eat each day. Starting from breakfast, then snack, dinner, snack, tea and if you could manage it another snack before bedtime. eating before bedtime sure helped me go from 5 stone to where I am now.

I wish you luck with your recovery and hope you find a way which you can achieve it.
I am always here if you need support x

Hello jonathanb,

The most responsible advice i can supply you with is to see a nutritionist specializing in eating disorders.

Speak with your primary doctor and if it's possible,have a complete physical performed(blood test included).

Respectfully
Phoenix
