Hi:) I ve been maintaining my weight on 1640 cals a day which i feel is plenty for me (increased from before as I was eating under 1,200 and didn t want to carry on this unhealthy way) Over the past week I ve had a few very very naughty days(holidays uh) where I have gained about 3kg.. Now my question is, I basically needed to gain these 3kg but my plan was to do it slowly at my pace... But seeing as I have gained them accidentally by having a few crazy days, do I go back to eating 1640 a day ? Will that make me eventually go back to the weight i was maintaining at 1640cals? Or do I have to increase overall to maintain this new weight? Thank you

I have been dieting and cutting back on portion size for the last 3 months. Lately, I feel so sick when I eat anything. I can only take a few bites and I am too full. I have been keeping count of my calorie intake and most days I am under 800, some days way under. I am 21 year old female and I am 5ft 11 so I know this isn t enough calories to stay healthy. I am losing 2 lbs a week and I can see I am gaining muscle from working out, but I am afraid I am screwing up my metabolism. I am not sure how to fix this problem. I can t force myself to eat more than I already am, it makes me feel so sick.

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
