Original Post by fluffydragon:

Since you are 17, you should never eat less than 1500 calories. I would strongly advise against doing a fasting routine like is suggested above, even for a few days, especially since you're still growing.  We aren't lions.  Or rats. Or strictly carnivorous. Predators do this because it's both inefficient to kill and eat every day, and if their bodies depended on daily eating, they would not do well during some seasons. Humans 'can' go a few days without eating, but we don't have to, and frankly, there's no reason to.

I completely agree, but don't want to get into an argument about carb cycling, IF, and everything else. Because you are still growing, you should actually be eating more than the CC calculators are going to say. Finding a good teen calculator is a good start. This one tells you your BMR and you shouldn't ever go below this amount of calories. Then, depending on how active you are, you add on a certain percentage more. If you're sedentary, try multiplying your BMR by 1.2. Hope this helps!

I didn't say they couldn't carb cycle. I don't even really know what that is, but what I am saying is that a 17 year old female should never fast.

Add me to the list. My co-workers sometimes bring in their kids. When they do, I"ve been known to shut my office door so they won't come in and bother me. Yes, they are allowed to run loose sometimes. It's incredibly annoying.

I had to ask one of my co-workers to please stop asking me when we're going to have kids. Because, seriously, staaahp.

Ever since my friend said that all newborns/infants look like tiny old men, I cannot un-see it. 

I don't know what to do with a crying baby  that I can't communicate with. They smell bad and at least my cats know how to use a litter box.

My niece and nephew at least are finally to the age I can communicate with them and they're growing on me. Other kids? not so much.

Weight Loss Eating breakfast at 1am bad? Nov 15 2012

A) that's not enough food.

B) If I'm not mistaken, you don't need to lose any weight. My husband is 6'4 and needs to get down to 195 lbs. He'd be emaciated at 165. I know that's not everyone though.

I also wanted to say that my husband and I are really close. We are best friends.  I once thought that nothing could break us. We never fight, unless it's about my ED. I don't understand why this is comming up now, since I am not even close to being underweight. He says I can't go under 122 (bmi 18.5) and that is a compromise. Blah blah blah. He rather me be overweight. Anyways, off the subject. I just wanted to tell you all that my husband and I have a good relationship, so him saying he leave me if I go below 122 is a shock.

18.5 is UNDERWEIGHT and UNHEALTHY.

if you are responding to your husband's genuine concerns with 'blah blah blah'. I can see why you are having problems communicating.

Why should he support you when you want to be unhealthy?

What's more important to you? your weight or your husband?

One of my favorite cheapie but filling meals were ramen noodles with an egg cracked in and a half cup of mixed frozen veggies.  I still keep tons of frozen veggies in my freezer because they're good for a lot of things.  I'll add a bag of frozen cauliflower to mac n' cheese to thin out the calories. 

Good luck with everything - hugs.  Things will get better.

My husband and I have been close to where you are now.  His ex roommate once went without food for a full week so she could make sure her dogs ate.

M S G (mono - sodium glutamate) a flavourant enhancer normally used in Chinese cuisine can be very addictive and also retains water in the body. Ask the waiter / chef not to use M S G: sometimes they oblige.       

I honestly haven't seen MSG used in Chinese food in years. All the places I order from have 'no msg' on their menus or on their walls.

I don't know if this was intentional or not, but DO NOT eat less than 1200 calories a day.

You need to add fat to your routine, AND you need to eat more. A lot more.

You know your weight has plummeted, so you know you aren't eating enough. Losing 14 lbs in 'a couple of weeks' is SEVERE. Are you even keeping down your food at all?

You are doing SERIOUS damage to yourself because you aren't eating enough. Being cold is a sign that your blood is not circulating correctly.

You are my height and 126 is borderline underweight. You may not 'need' to gain weight, but you need to repair your metabolism, which may mean gaining weight for a while. Your body needs more nutrition.

I'm donating this morning! Last time I made an appointment, they told me that I Need to ask for my '3 gallon' pin next time I come in :D

So, I"m pretty sure I used to be able to enter this as a custom activity, but now I don't see a way to do it. Any ideas?

For what it's worth, I was brought up southern baptist. I decided I was more comfortable as an atheist than a Christian. I can't believe in a god that would send my friends to hell for all eternity because they didn't believe in said god.

I don't believe in a heaven either. My best friend believes there is nothing after this life, but I like to hope for reincarnation. Can you imagine how boring heaven would be? forever?

I think your uncle's legacy will live on in your hearts as a life well-lived. Remember him always, and he will be there.

Motivation How do you deal with the wt gains even though you are doing everything right? Oct 23 2012

If you are 242, you are likely not eating enough calories. you do NOT want to go down to 1200, especially if you are working out. If you're worried now that your body is adjusting to loo low a calorie intake, then you'll have the exact same problem down the road going to 1200.

More importantly, you are not a short, sedentary woman. 

If you are eating close to 1200 right now, you are not doing everything right, I'm sorry.  You might also just be on a plateau.

The other poster was correct about the weight of the food itself vs. the calories.

If you weigh yourself, then immediately drink a half gallon of water, you will 'gain' 4 lbs because of the weight of the water. Try weighing yourself only every other day, and only in the morning right after you wake up and start your routine, but before you eat or drink anything. It will also give you a better baseline.

How many calories a day do you eat now and how much do you work out?

3. I like to change up my calorie intake. I don't eat the same amount each day. I try to keep my body guessing. I have low and high calorie days. Some days I eat 500 calories and some days 2000.  If i eat something that puts on water weight the next day I always go for a low calorie day and drink plenty of water and stay clear of salt.

You should never only eat 500 calories a day : (

Although i did see on this one show on youtube that this girl lost 50 lbs taking these !! But im not saying i am . But also is my ED gone yet ? Yes im thinking about starving and purging and all that but im not physically doing it again yet . Im still eating a lot !! And im certainly not underweight even though i wish i was but. I just have thoughts thats it so im fine right ?

No. If you are thinking about it, thinking leads to doing. Do not comfort yourself by 'just thinking' about starving.  If you think about it too much, you'll do it. You'll tell yourself 'just one day'. It's never just one day. If you are thinking about it, your ED is not gone.  Stop wishing you were underweight. Underweight is bad.

Hint - People sell things. They say they will work so they can sell them.

There's not anything good about them. She's delusional. And addicted.

Repeat after me. Pills don't work.

OF ANY KIND. 

Laxatives will move WATER out of your body, it doesn't reduce your fat.

Don't take green tea pills. Don't take cranberry pills. Don't take Laxative pills. The only thing that works permanently is a healthy lifestyle.

When I was in High School, I knew one gay person. When I was in college, I knew a lot of people who were single, some who had sig others, but a wider variety of preferences. 

Today, I know of at least a dozen people in Poly relationships. This is completely different from polygamy - these are people in open relationships, sometimes paired off, sometimes not. 

I still can't quite get my head around it - maybe it's just not for me. But they seem pretty happy, so I'm not passing judgement, it's just not my thing.

My husband and I have been married for six years.  And we seem to be above average for our age group. A number of friends or friends of friends have recently split up. A couple of friends are in permanent relationships but unmarried for various reasons.

I know a guy who used to have a .. erm. sex dungeon for lack of a better term? he had a woman who literally lived in a bathroom at his house (total sub). Today he is married and has a kid.

I know a lot of interesting people.  Some change, some don't. Oddly, I don't know of any who are in a true polygamous relationship - one husband, more than one wife, nor the opposite of one wife, more than one husband.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
