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 had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
