will i gain weight by eating this?! - March 26th 2010, 01:17 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I usually dont eat 3 meals a day. only 1 a day. i think this is the start of an eating disorder.

but if u cud answer this that wud be great.
i havent eaten anything all day except for 2 ricola cough drops,
and a packet of low fat gushers. and just a sip of pop.

is that gonna make me gain weight at all?

Met you from a tie between u and me buddy,
Saw you from my wired eyes with a twisted little lie, and my mind told me negative when i had a wish to own you with my heart, buddy and you split like twigs, senses told her i fell for him, and she told me "i loved him, and go get him" And while i said "negative he said "correct" <3

Me and ? = 3 days which =correct

No, and you need to look into getting help. Not eating is extremely unsafe.

Hey Winter,

From what you described, it definitely does not seem plausible that you could possibly gain weight from what you ate. That being said, however, you ate an extremely small, unhealthy amount. Remember that your body needs regular nutrition with an adequate amount of calories, in order to function. To go on the way you did today, your body will shut down.

Have you ever talked to a doctor or anyone about your eating issues? I'd highly recommend it, because the thing is, eating problems don't just go away. They get worse and worse. I really would hate to see you in the hospital with medical complications from your ED behaviors.

Please, reach out to someone. I know how hard that can seem, but you deserve help. I promise you it's possible to get to a point where you can like your body, and eat a healthy amount for it.

Since your question has been answered, and I can't see any other responses saying very different things, I'm going to close this. Please feel free to PM me if you have questions, or ever want to talk. Please take care of yourself and get some help. I believe in you.
