Well .... you should actually be eating more than that. I'm not sure where you've been looking, but obviously it hasn't been on this website :P You should actually be eating around 2000 calories (ballpark, obviously it will vary based on your height and weight and goals). Personally, I tend to have a 500 calorie breakfast or so ... I eat three meals and one to two snacks a day, I don't calorie count but as an estimate it would be broken down like this:
B - 500
L - 500
S - 250
D - 500
S - 250
Like I said I do not count so it often varies, as it's Christmas now I tend to have more dessert :P But that's a breakdown I would advise, I think it's pretty balanced! If you like to have smaller breakfasts maybe have a 300 or 400 calorie one then add the remaining calories to a snack or a larger dinner or something.
I have breakfast before school Lunch there ( but its at 10am -_- ) Dinner when I'm home at 4 ( not aloud to eat in school besides Lunch so I'm forced to wait) Then I have to go to work right after and by the time I'm out its 930. During work I normally have something very small on break because its only 10 minutes long. When I finally get out its way too late for an actual meal.
I've always weighed a very small number for what I look because my frame is very small. I have small bones always have. So when I weighed 110 sorry it wasn't 100 I was really fat, not my whole body just my stomach. My legs and arms haven't changed at all, just my belly area is now proportionate with the rest of my body. I'm trying to gain weight evenly.
Like I said in another post. My mom would force me to stop eating... I was obviously fat ! Lol. Doctor also told me I was 10 lbs over weight. But my wright never had anything to do with my under eating.
No you weren't and your doctor was wrong. At 110 pounds and 5'0", you were smack in the middle of a healthy weight range. Not fat or overweight. Small frame or not.
What is your doctor doing to address your health issues that are causing you to undereat?
I'm using the clean diet approach. It's a book I read by Tosca Reno called The Eat Clean Diet. I absolutely love it! I eat between 5 and 6 meals a day and its about mixing carbs and proteins to stay full. If I'm hunger I eat. I've never eaten this much and lost weight. I also try to stay between 1400 and 1800 calories a day. My normal breakfast is oatmeal, flaxseed, wheat germ, and berries mixed together and 4 egg whites and of course coffee. For about 330 calories. Full and tasty.
I've lost 18 pounds in six weeks and started in November. I was very scared to start then because of all the holiday parties and drinking but I manged. I'm excited to loss weight at Christmas time instead of gaining.
So sorry! I didn't mean to offend you. I just read the first question of how many calories to eat for breakfast and went from there.
You are dealing with an issue I don't have answers for because I am having the opposite problem. Good Luck
Oatmeal is great!!! But I love variety. I eat the same thing for too long and it gets boring to me.
I suggest about 400cal for breakfast. It keeps a person satisfied without being stuffed and boosts the metabolism for the day. I often have 2 packets of instant oatmeal (200cal) made with 1c milk (100cal) and a glass of juice (100cal) for a total of 400cal. Another thing I do it a bagel (250cal) with 2TBS cream cheese (100cal) and a coffee with sugar (50cal) for a total of 400cal.
No one should ever eat between 1000-1200cal a day. A normal body takes 1500cal just to lie around all day for your heart to beat and organs to function. The absolute least you should be eating is 2000cal a day. On average, teenage girls need between 2200-2600cal a day, so I'll give you an idea of a 2400cal meal plan.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
