    A higher metabolism helps with working off shit, and I'm scared of it getting lower as I eat less. So...how do you keep it up while mainting <200 cals/day? I've heard some say that the 2468 diet is good because of the 800 day, which keep your metabolism up, is that true? Someone help I need to...

    Hey! It’s quite hard to find the information I need on anorexia and recovery, and caloric needs overall, so I hope I’ve come to the right place here! So, I’ll start like this; I’ve always been extremely uncomfortable about my body. I was always kind of chubby, but had a time where I completely...

    So by high restricters I mean those of y’all who eat less than 500 cals and often try to eat absolutely nothing most of the time. (That’s my impression of high restricters, Sorry if this is wrong?) mid consider myself a low restricter, I eat around 1000-1100 a day. But only because I’m so...

    I’ve eaten normally for two days in an attempt to fix my metabolism but now my stomach is solid and painful. I hate this so much I feel like I’ve lost control and I’m going to put weight on. My tdee is 2400 or 2200 on the lower end, I’ve probably eaten that for two days am I screwed? I also...

    I’m planning a metabolism weekend where I eat around 1500-2000 which is still under my tdee of 2200. I’m hoping this breaks my plateau. Does this make me invalid? Will it even work? Also, my logic is also that if I eat the foods that I’ve Been hella craving I’ll satiate it and also remember how...

    Even though weight loss calcs say I could loose 5lbs in 2weeks on 800, I’m convinced my body is broken because I’m convinced I’m maintaining and possibly gaining. How can others with a lower bmi be loosing on 1000+ consistently when I can’t loose on 800 at bmi 18? Ffs I’m so frustrated and...

    I was restricting ~800/900 cal/day for a really long time. I haven't lost any weight since a few months and three days ago I noticed +1 kg (morning, after toilet). I know it can be water weight but still - my metabolism is reeeally slow. Im really frustrared... Everyday I was struggling with...

    Hi all, For the past year or so I’ve been restricting myself in order to lose weight. In any case, after I became a little under a hundred pounds, I decided I’d start making the choice to work out and do strength training much more frequently. After a bit of this I realized there’s no way I...

    Hi, I've been reverse dieting for the last few months and I've been eating abt 1500kcal daily for the last month, but I've gotten sick, so I barely ate anything for 4 days. Could that slow my metabolism again? I planned to start restricting once November starts. Could that be too early? Thanks!!

    I messed up my metabolism this October by restricting low and fasting A LOT. What are some ways I could get my metabolism working well again? Or at least better than it is right now? And do you know of any ways to really speed up metabolism?

    i eat about 600-800 calories a day with some light exercise. i was losing weight fine until my bmi hit the 14s, now i’m lucky to lose even half a pound every week. i heard having a couple days of higher eating can help, so i ate in the 1000-1600 range for three days about a week and a half ago...

    Hi, I've been reverse dieting for like 4-6 weeks now. I'm kinda dumb so I ended up tracking my calories poorly but I've been eating 1000-1300 cals for 2 weeks now and I'm luckily not noticing any weight gain. So here are some questions I have: When can I start restricting again ?? And what...

    Do you avoid carbohydrates and how much of protein do you eat daily? Recently i have red that it's good to eat as much protein as possible in the first stage of losing weight and add carbohydrates progressively later. How many grams or % of carbohydrates, protein and fats do you eat daily? How...

    I have been dieting since April 2021 on 1200-1500 kcal a day. In February 2022 I increased to 1600 kcal and by August 2022 I was eating 1800 kcal (and I gained 5-6 kg total). Until August 2022 I felt painfully hungry all the time even though I was eating 1500+ kcal. I have very recently been...
