First off, I wanted to thank all of you that have been reading and commenting. You're all wonderful! I've been a mess this week (first week back ahhh) but I'm gonna read blogs this weekend.

So I finally went to the nutritionist. 114 with clothes and a full stomach (breakfast, water, etc. ) which kind of sucks and I hoped for better. I guess I'll try to weigh myself before I eat sometime to compare...

Anyway he told me that I'm not eating enough and that's why I'm tired all the time. But dude I eat at least 1200 cal a day and sometimes more and then I'm still tired AND upset with myself. Then he started talking about how I need to start making up a deficit and we made 2000 cal meal plans... He was acting like I'm emaciated but I'm far from it. I don't understand.

I want to not feel so damn exhausted anymore but I feel like I'd gain weight if I follow his plan. I don't know what to do.

Anyhow I need to go to class now.

You're all awesome.

Peace out.


  1. Maybe ask your nutritionist about a different approach if you're worried about weight gain. When I was putting my intake up, I added 50-100 calories every few weeks while keeping an eye on the scales, and it helped me feel a lot more comfortable with higher intakes. So maybe try baby steps up to 1,300, 1,400, 1,500 etc. before jumping straight to 2,000?

  2. Is he focusing more on your caloric intake? Or is he concerned with your actual nutrition. Like maybe you're not getting enough iron, or protein. I dunno. Just trying to be helpful :)

  3. Nutritionists are difficult. I once had one who tried to tell me I ought to eat 2500 kcal/day. Perhaps your fatigue is due to the fact that you're not eating the right sorts of things. Maybe you're eating too many carbohydrates and not enough protein. Do you eat meat/dairy? Because you may be B-12 deficient. I usually take B-12 supplements to help with my energy.

    Hope you're well, xx
