Question Whats Going On? - March 20th 2009, 04:19 PM

I never has a eating disorder. I love food too much. But after i moved out of my parents house food is hard to come by. My daily diet would be like candy, junk food and buger king. I know that i have very poor eating habits but thats what i was raised on. Fast food. But anyways i have bumped into a old friend the other day at the mall and he was like "Did your boobs shrink?" i was like yea i think so. He asked me if i had been eating i said yea i eat when i can and what i can. Most of the time i have no money so the dollar meun is all i'll get.

But I dont know i'm just kinda upset about this whole loosing weight from my boobs instead of my tummy. anyone know whats going on?


Peace
Be Safe!

Hello Jodie!
Well; as no one here is a medical professional - we cannot be 100% sure as to why you lost weight in that particular area but it just so happens that when one wants to lose/gain weight in the certain area - it usually doesn't happen as we can't tell our body what areas we want to shrink or expand therefore it does it in the unwanted places. Unfortunately; that's just how it is. We can't pick and choose.

I would definitely enquire about getting some financial help because it sounds as though you are eating a very poor diet at the moment and although these junk meals have a lot of calories packed in - they have very little else; no fibre, no minerals, vitamins etc! It's just fat, sugar and tons of calories which just leads to artery clogging as it's not even the good fat; it's the saturated fat - which explains why you're losing weight and not gaining.

So yes; do speak to someone about this if possible. It would be extremely beneficial to see your dietician as well; who can help figure out a good healthy-eating diet, suited to your needs.

Good luck and take care!


& it's just like she's in another world.

Hm...I think I'm going to move this to General Health as I think you'll get more replies there than in Eating Disorders. If anyone disagrees feel free to move back. [:

I know exactly what you mean. Food is a HUGE deal now huh? I moved out the night of my 18th birthday with my boyfriend. Money is important, and food is hard to come by. And since he gets off at 9-10 at night, no one wants to cook and we go out. Fast food is sometimes the only thing we eat.

All I can tell you is get the basics in the house... Like these.

-Spaghetti noodles and sauce.
-Boxes mac and cheese
-Top Ramen
-A bunch of diet soda.
-Orange juice
-Some kind of fruit
-Hamburger
-Hamburger helper
-Tortillas
-Cheese
-Eggs

Those are foods that are cheap and can be used for all kind of things. That's some of the stuff I have at my house.
