I SAW A DIETITION!!

Postby Monica » Sat Jun 30, 2007 9:47 am

hi everyone,

i went and saw a dietitian on monday.. it was the best. I wasn't expecting much but she was the most interesting kind lady I have met. She seemed to know exactly what was going on with me with minimal explination from me.

I was actually iagnosed with an eating disorder. :( This is because I am a compulsive dieter, so when I am on a diet I usually reduce my calories to 1000 - 1200 (starvation mode) so when I finally break the diet i binge... the eating diorder part is that after I binge I vomit... YUCK :cry:

She said that with my dieting ways i have basically made my motabolism as low as it will go and I have broken all trust that my body has with me to feed it properly. It is in constant fear of being put back into starvation mode, my motabolism is always very slow and whenever I eat, my body holds onto all fat for dear life....

So I have a long road ahead of me where I have to learn how to deal with food properly. It's pretty full on. I am pretty scared actually, but she is great and i have made a decision to take a leap of faith and trust her advise to me.

thanks for letting me get that off my chest - not the sort of thing you tell your mates!!

Dietician

Postby seigns » Wed Jul 04, 2007 2:01 pm

:( That was really interesting. I can relate so much to what you're saying about your metabolism. I fear that i am currently on a diet which is providing about 800 calories probably at the most. My metabolism has been damaged from years of Yo-Yo dieting too and now I almost can't even lose weight anymore. And what's ridiculous is that I started dieting when I was only 60 kgs which was the perfect weight for my height. I wish I'd realised it at the time and now wonder if I also have an eating disorder. However I don't vomit. I hope that you are able to stop doing that and good luck to you. I might go see a dietician too.

thanks for all the feed back guys. it is scry. Because i am eating more than usual (because I am breaking my dieting pattern) I am putting on weight!!! It is horrible. Apparently it takes about 4-6 weeks of letting my body eat whenever it wants before I can start to lose weight.

To Seigns, I think it wounds like you have the same prob as me. I soo recomend a dietitian. I found out sooo much information. I would love to pass it all on but it is too much and it is better to go to a professional. they owuld definatly be ablle to help you.
