Help! I can't stop loosing!



Recommended Posts

So I had surgery March 18th and I have lost 100lbs in 6 months. I was a low BMI and only had about 100 to loose. So I have met my goal and I do t want to loose any more. I still struggle with upping my calories. Still intaking about 6-800 a day. I'm never hungry and have a hard time forcing myself to eat. I still do Protein Shakes and usually with drink most of my calories trying to get the Protein. I don't know how to up my calorie intake without making poor choices. Is anyone else going through this,or have home through this. I'm afraid that the loss will never stop and I will just wither away and die. Oh and I cannot work out because I burn more than I eat.

Yes! I add Peanut Butter to cream of wheat, and rice cakes. I do Greek yogurt everyday and I have tried using 2% milk instead of day free. I do use regular cheese when I eat cheese. And have stopped purchasing fat free anything.

As much as I hate to reference it, because I hate it. What's your current BMI? There is nothing wrong with getting slightly under your target weight. There will most likely be a bit of a weight increase as you get further out and your body readjusts to the new weight range.

Well there goes that!

Ummm... My only other suggestion is adding a Meal Replacement shake a day in addition to your regular diet.. Not a Protein shake but a true Meal Replacement like slim fast, ensure, etc...

Oh and smoothies! There's a massive amount of calories in those healthy numbers!

Oh and thanks :)

I think you literally need to eat something every 2 (no longer than 3) hours. Whether you are hungry or not. That's what I do. My doc said that a lot of people lose their hair because of the extreme calorie deficit, and I did NOT want to lose my hair. So, I have pretty consistently (for about 6 weeks now) hit 1200-1300 calories per day.

I eat about every two hours--hungry or not. After my morning run I drink a high 200 calorie RTD Protein drink (@5a.m.); at 7 a.m. I have a 70 calorie boiled egg; 9 a.m. (my off period) I have my oatmeal that I add Protein powder to--about 130 calories; my lunch is at 11:39 a.m. and I usually do tuna and crackers-250 calories; between 2&3 p.m. I eat an ounce of cashews (160 cals) and a string cheese (80 cals); dinner is between 5&6 p.m. and it is usually a beef Soup, salad n chicken, or fish n veggies ranging from 200-300 calories. I drink a casein Protein Drink before bed.

It's hard work, it takes a lot of preparation, it's not always comfortable, but I have gotten used to it and I have yet to lose my hair. I am very happy with the rate of my weight loss. Not too fast, not too slow. I know you are further out than me, and being a low BMI'r like yourself, I hope I am not in your same predicament, but I truly hope this helps you up your calories. Good luck to you.

I know it illegal but I also know pot stimulates appetite. Friend of mine good portion of his large intestines remove due disease. After loading significant weight, this was the only thing that turned that around . He would have died without it.

Ahhh this is what I'm afraid of! I'm a low BMI'r and only have about 100 pounds to loose as well.... but that's awesome that you've met your goal in only 6months! How is your skin? (sorry, I'm very curious... my surgery date is next friday 10/11)
