I am posting this anon for several reasons, but really need some helo here. If you happen to be a nutritionist, PLEASE PLEASE help me!
My problem is that I am under weight and I mean less than 100 pounds under weight. I do NOT have an eating disorder, just have a hard timee gaining and keeping weight on. The most I've ever weighed was 125 and I was pregnant. I know being this under weight is not really healthy. I really want to put weight on, but can't seem to be able to do it. I talked to my doctor today and all he said was work out and exercise. I asked about getting a referral to a nutritionist because I'm sure making some healthy diet changes would help and my doctor made no suggestions what so ever, just exercise. Any way. He told me my state insurance will not cover a nutritionist so I'm sol, and still made no suggestions. That's where you come in. Please, if you can make any suggestions, and can help me, please do so. I hate being like this and want to change it. I want to be confident again, but I just feel like a walking skeleton.
Before any one says "I wish I had your problem", believe me you don't. I've had 5 doctors ask me if I have an eating disorder, my joints hurt due to lack of any kind of cushion, my hip bones look nasty, it's uncomfortable, and I feel like I am just a walking skeleton.
THANK YOU LADIES FOR ALL OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS! I will definitely be trying all of this!
