You should be eating a well balanced diet, include more of prtiens, and vegetables and fruits, but cut our on carbohydrates, avoid carbohydrate rich fruits and vegetables. There is something called as 'glycemic index' of foods. Eat the ones with low gycemic index. For more details speak to a dietician.

Diabetes diet- Increase in fibre intake.

Take 4-5 small diets, instead of 3 heavy meals.

Intake of fresh fruits and vegetables to be increased.

All fats are high in calories, so you should always watch your portion sizes.

Hi, I believe I have a eating disorder. I could go days with just eating barely a snack. I’ll go all day without really eating anything and sometimes binge at night or barely eat anything. I’ve been told I’m malnourished and to drink stuff like ensure but I don’t really do that anymore because when I drink it at night it gives me indigestion and I can’t sleep. Sometimes I’ll very really finish a whole plate of food but my stomach is still rumbling but I’m not exactly hungry. I weigh around 105 now and I’m 5’5. What do you think is wrong?

Also if I eat to fast or to big of bites my heart will beat very fast for about 10 minutes or more. Im 5 9, 31 years and 215 pounds. No health problems besides this. It makes it so I can t enjoy meals anymore.

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
