Need alot of help....
« on: September 02, 2005, 01:09:51 AM »
After the last couple of months, due to eating things accidently (don't ask, but I was in hospital for 2 weeks) I've managed to lose 10kg, 10kg that I didn't have to lose in the first place and the next person who says u've lost weight and looking good I may actually murder....... I have surgery a week away and last time I lost half a stone just 'cause I felt sick most of the time. Do any of u guys have any ideas how to bulk up, 'cause I can't lose any more weight and chocolate and build up shake is not the answer as I've found out.........
Any ideas most appreciated...seeing the dietition tomorrow, but I just can't keep the 50kg target despite what I try. Its driving me nuts and making me very miserable........I like the old me not this one, who is literally a shadow of forma self.

Your probably losing lean muscle mass due to being laid up in hospital. I think they only way you are going to get this muscle  back is to be excercising to rebuild that muscle which (Im guessing) your probably can't do too much off. If your not eating properly or enough your body enters "starvation mode" and will burn fat and predominantly muscle to keep your body ticking over. This may explain the large weight loss.

You could gain weight easily by eating more calories than your maintenance level - this can be done by eating healthy foods - you dont have to eat just sugary/fatty foods. Eating a healthy mix of carb/protien/fat will also feed your body the key nutrients it needs to repair your body from the damage of surgery plus youll feel healthy inside.

I hope this helps and If I dont make much sense feel free to private message me.
