    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...

    Ok maybe I’m insane or just plain stupid, but I believe (and hope) this 7 days water fast could help me sort of reset my fucked up metabolism. See, I’ve been drinking alcohol a lot (alcoholic style) for the past couple of years. And since I highly restricted every day to save my calories for...

    So my situation right now is very difficult. I have some serious health consequences (edema, pain, difficulties walking, inability to gain body fat). So every time I am trying to gain weight I am only gaining that painful fluid and that is why I think I might have undiagnosed refeeding syndrome...

    Last year I've tried recovery for the second time (first time was in 2013) but I guess I failed again. I can't handle this higher weight I've been on since a year now (BMI 28). My body just doesn't feel like it's mine and I really want to lose weight again but my metabolism is shit (bought a...

    Hi, so I started fasting for 2 days then broke it with 200 calories and continued as normal for another 2 days (rolling fast) I’m taking a day off today because I don’t want my metabolism to get used to minimal food. How much should I aim to eat on my day off? I’m 161cm and 44kg if that’s...

    I plan to eat 400 cal/day during the next 6 weeks. I know that it's better to high restrict, but I don't have a lot of time to buy, cook or think about food atm. Once I'm able to come back home, I plan to reverse diet up to maintinance again. I'm scared my metabolism will drop during this next 6...

    Hi, through youtube recommendations I discovered subliminals which prevent binging or cravings. There are many more topics like removing negative thoughts or self hatred. I tried some and they can be really effective for a Period but after using one often it decreases and the urges kick back in...
