okay this is my fault and I have no problem admitting it. I am a disabbled Vet with 4 kids to feed. Thanks to the rising economy and my not being able to work I have reduced my food intake so my kids can eat. Usually one meal a day and not much of one. Well this has been going on for a few months. I went to my doc for an unrelated visit but when weighed I noticed I have lost 30 pounds doing this. This is unacceptable. I decided to start to increase my food intake and now I am having problems. I am currently 6' tall at 133 pounds.
It seems my stumach can no longer fully tolerate certain foods. Mainly meats or anything with soybean oil. I become nausiated and my tummy just feels yucky. Sometimes it comes right back out. Is it possible my bad eating habits caused this to happen. If so how can I "Retrain" my stomach to accept these foods? I need to get those 30 pounds back.
Although this is not because of an eating disorder I am sure it is similar to one. I only reduced my food intake so my children can eat. It was not for personal appearance or social acceptance.
May be by following these home treatment you can improve your food consumption and also gain weight:
1. Banana or mango milk shake consumption (the fruits provide sugar whereas milk provides protein thereby exists a symbiotic relationship)
2. 30 Gms of raisins per day
3. Three soaked dried figs can be eaten twice daily
4. Musk melon for a period of 40 days.
Exercises increase appetite & thereby improve food consumption
1. Yoga (Sarvangasana, Halasana and Matsyasana)
2. Small and frequent meals.
Thanks for the reply. Much of that sounds yummy. I want to verify one thing though. You said musk melon. Well I never heard of that so I looked it up. It looks alot like a cantaloupe. Are they the same? Honeydew was also mentioned in the article. Two things I like to eat but rarely do. Can either of those two be used as the musk melon? I just want to be sure.
