Not eating much

basically the past 3 weeks I havent been eating lunch or breakfast mostly because im lazy. but after a while I noticed I had went from 109 lbs to 106. I told people that I was mad about it and I will try 2 stay healthy, but truthfully I was happy. I wanted 2 lose weight. I wanted to be skinny. No matter ow much I lvoed to eat, I decided in my mind I wud rather not eat then eat. Is this bad?

Answer #1

Yeah, thats definatly a bad thing. If you want to lose weight while trying to stay healthy heres what to do.

First, try eating 6 meals a day, it may seem like much but the more frequent you eat small meals the more your matabalsm speeds up, this will help you burn more calories causing you to lose weight at a healthy pace.

Another thing to do is drink more water. During a workout your body will sweat out the water you contain thats in your body. The rest you drink, you’ll pee out the rest. This works, trust me. I used to wrestle weighing in at 165. In a two month period I lost about 13 weighing in at 152. This will keep you hydrated along with losing weight.

If you can’t do those things, try to watch what you eat. Im not saying to go on a strict diet, but if you consume fewer calories, your body will adjust to the calorie intake burning off more unwanted fat. Also avoid carbs when eating meals (breads,potatos,ect.)

By the way, if your 5’5 weighing in at 106, thats pretty skinny. Don’t try to be like the aneritic celebrities. You look good the way you are. As long as you think it, nobodys elses opinon matters. Let me know if you have any questions.

Answer #2

You have a BMI of 17.64.

BMI is equal to or less than 18.5 (Underweight) A lean BMI can indicate that your weight maybe too low. You should consult your physician to determine if you should gain weight, as low body mass can decrease your body’s immune system, which could lead to ilness such as disappearance of periods (women), bone loss, malnutrition and other conditions. The lower your BMI the greater these risks become.

“What should a minimum calorie intake be?”

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

Answer #3

you are a tiwg!! that is not healthy!! if you want to lose weight (which you do not need to at all you are at least 14 pounds underweight) you need to exerise more and eat healthier. Google losing weghit you find great ways to cut cal. intake, but you personally don’t becasue you are skinny that you might get ill

Answer #4

your 5’5 and you ONLY weigh 109, ok 106 now, but damn! im 5’5 and I weigh like 125 adn I still look good, im no where near fat but you your starving urself, do you want to be a bean pole, because thats not an attractive thing guys like for ya to have some curves!

Answer #5

Ummm… YEAH!! You’re starving yourself! If you don’t eat your body isn’t getting any nutrients and after a while, your body eats its own muscle trying to get the nutrients it needs! How tall are you? Because, usually 109/106 is underweight.

Answer #6

well, I have days like that…well bout everyday…I just dont want to eat…I loose my weight but somehow I gain it back…but you better careful…it vould turn into somethin bad

Answer #7

You have an eatting disorder if you’re 5’5 and weigh 106… Seriously. I’m only 5’3 and I weigh about 115. -_- You make me feel fat when I’m not. And that’s not a compliment.

Answer #8

Not exactly starving…but you look nice to me, so thats sort-of anorexic. Your cute, healthy-looking and all that stuff, so why try so hard to be healthy and kinda starve yourself.No matter How bad you want to eat, if yo want to eat badly, EAT! you dont always have to be around 110-100…anyways…Yeah thats all. Just eat if you want, and exercise a little, not too much because boys dont like muscled girls. Trust me.

Answer #9

I know hundreds of people have said it but the worst thing to do is starve yourself. no because you will get really sknny and ill but in the long wrong your metabilism will slow down and you will put on more weight than to begin with! If you dont enjoy eating big meals have several smaller meals a day and combined with exercise you will be thin but healthy :)

Answer #10

OMG I know this… Don’t skip breakfast. If you want to skip a meal then skip dinner. It works with losing weight. My friend recently skipped dinner and already lost 4 pounds. If you skip breakfast you’ll go on this “love food, hate food” routine. It simply ruins your diet and makes you gain EVER mORE weight. You’ll get confused. What ever you do, DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST!!! :) :)

Answer #11

Yes it’s really bad. You will start to gain weight eventually because your body will go into starvation mode and will hang on to fat in case you don’t feed it again. The body is smart and sensitive to what you do to it and skipping meals will only make you unwell and seriously unhealthy. It also effects your hair and teeth and skin. take a look at a short post I wrote about this a couple of weeks ago. Hope you start eating again after reading it.

Answer #12

It is very bad becaus my aunt starved herself and was in the hospital at 94 pounds and almost died. so…EAT!!!
