I can go for English sausage, too. Not as spicy but I heard they're a mouthful and best enjoyed hot. Heh heh...

Are you telling that Mexican food is made with real Mexicans?

*abuses thread as means to get advice*
[Careful, some annoying medical stuff you may not want to read - nothing gruesome, but it might still be TMI? I'd rather disclaimer it than not, anyway.]

Hi community,

I've got a problem. The problem is that I don't eat enough - I'm simply rarely hungry, and I rarely eat if I'm not hungry. I'm very thin and am underweight, but not in the least anorexic - yet I've now reached a point where I'm concerned about my health as by nutrients. I've had various plans to eat properly twice a day (instead of snack across the day and one properly in the evening), they've not stood the psychological test of time.

Can anyone give me an idea how I can motivate myself to eat more than my body (wrongly) suggests I need? I'm rather afraid of losing any more weight, to the point that BoyToy has had to "soothe" me that we'll get a means to weigh me and "prove that I'm not losing weight".

Mind, I'm not concerned about how I look - I look as healthy as a couch potato can look (very fair skin), if unusually thin; my bones don't protrude unhealthily. What's caused my concern is that my stomach seems unable to cope well with food lately, and gets bloated up with air with alarming frequency (to the point where my stomach feels hard when nudged at with my fingers).

Maybe I'm fretting over nothing, but knowing I'm underweight as by WHO (as is my mum - we both don't eat very much because we don't get hungry easily), I feel this frequency of stomach issues is something I can't just ignore.

Advice, anyone?

I seriously doubt pinksie would want to
look this 'chic'.


Dear Blogsie,

I'm gravely concerned about pinksie's [non-]eating situation. Possibly one of the best things she should do is see a nutritionist in tandem with a therapist; the combination of the two should be able to help her get a grip on it. Also of paramount importance is to start an excercise regimen, there's nothing like high physical activity - sustained all the time - to get the appetite stimulated so that you have no choice but to eat more.

So in all sense above, you will be both invigorating your mind and your body to consume more food, thus provide yourself with more calories and vitamins. Because if you continue not eating regularly it will not only drain your strength, it will also fuck up your mental capacity, which will affect things in your life like the quality of your job performance, attention span, mindfulness, alertness, emotional states....and even your social and love life.

Advice, anyone?
Here's all I can tell you:
1. I have found that vitamins stimulate your appetite so try that first, it won't hurt you at least.
2. Try to drink one nutritional supplement a day (In the US it's products like Ensure and Boost) just like above, it will not hurt you.
3. There are other herbal supplements but I wouldn't reccomend those unless you have made sure there are no medical reasons first.

Pink,

what is it that you eat during the day? If you are eating thing that have lots of fiber in them, that might bloat your stomach and cause the air problem. Since you don't eat very much and its (mostly snacks) maybe that coupled with what you eat causes you stomach to go into shock. Just meaning that it can’t churn the food like it should.

My advice for what it's worth:

1. See a general practice doctor (just to explain what is going on)
2. Make sure you eat breakfast and vitamins
3. 1 protein drink (ensure, boots) something like that
4. When you eat a snack eat something that makes your stomach work to grind the food (i.e... celery, grapefruit)
5. If you eat a lot of meat cut back on that


**** part of #2*****

Start your day with a small to medium size breakfast. Studies show that if you skip breakfast then you are tell your body that there is not enough food for you at this time and it starts using its reserves for you body. And over time you body will come accustom to that feeling and it will no longer react to you not eating breakfast.

Dear Blogsie,

I made a new friend last week, I met him on the way home on my train, he was the ticket taker. We talked for a bit and someflirting took place and got his number. I just had him over and we had some hot passionate love. I'm seeing him again on Friday, gunna spend the day at Starbucks over coffee then maybe come over to mine before he goes to work. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. ahhh...

Love you all!
Silvsie

Dear Blogsie,

I absolutely love it when people I know take advantage of life and live as passionately as they can. Like silvsie.

Like I had posted before, it takes courage to be happy, and just as much to know when to let go of happiness so that there's room for more of it, in a different form, later on.

Dear Blogsie,

I'm going to order up a bunch of hot male escorts to show up at the Squink's house so to strap her to her bed and make mad passionate love to her all night. With wine and chocolates and everything.

Dear Blogsie,

I seriously want Jatsie to make hot passionate love to me. Not just sex, but a very sensual, almost painfully pleasurable lovemaking.

Oh, and I make a great omelet in the morning.

xoxo

Um… why don’t you do that for me? *sniff, sniff* you don’t love me anymore, you don’t come home for dinner anymore, I have it on the table waiting, I do your laundry, I darn you socks……. Wait wrong man….. Oh well, back to what ever you were doing

Me and my mom have always been really thin as well. But I've always had quite of an appetite, but still didn't gain weight until I had my children and even better after I turned 40.
Your concern is different.

First I think you should see a doctor as Bulldog and Trep said and do some tests for allergies. I don't know how much dairy products you eat, they can cause problems. My mom turned out to be allergic to lactose which means she must avoid milk, cream and such products. Anyway, she had pretty much the symptoms of her stomach that you're explaining.

I guess your current life situation (I don't know much about your life situation when I think about it.) allows you to have these habits of snacking and only eating properly once a day. Get a kid! No, I'm just kidding. I just found my life got much better when it comes to eating habits when I had to think about others than myself. Perhaps you and BoyToy can make some agreement to have at least two meals together. It's always nice to have a meal together with someone. I don't know if it will help your lack of appetite for food, but I do believe that proper meals will give you more of the nutritios carbs, vitamines and proteines than snacking.

Take care of yourself pinksie!
Let us know what happens!
Lena
