In my life Ive gone from being overweight...to dangerously underweight.
These days its a serious physical and emotional battle trying to put weight on. I wont go into details but lets just say I now consider myself recovered from an eating disorder (though I believe those sort of things will always be somewhere in the back of my mind for life
My problem now is I am an absolute health food FREAK! And it sounds like you are too so, Hi, lets me friends
I dont choose healthy food options because I want to control my weight, I choose them because its genuinly what I LOVE the most!! Honestly, I live, love and THRIVE off fruits and veg, to me it beats junk food anyday
Aaaah, seriously, I eat like crazy, aaall day long and I dont put on the slightest bit of weight because all the foods im choosing are healthy options! People always comment on the fact that I seem to have a lot of self control and discipline to eat like that...NOPE, NOT AT ALL because its what I seriously want to have :]
Soooo concequently, improving my low weight is TOUGH! I hate when people say "ohhh its not hard, just eat some chips"...NO...I HONESTLY DONT WANT CHIPS HAHA! So I try to always keep a good supply of nuts and seeds on hand to get my omega 3, but its still hard, I have the same problem as you with meeting calorie requirements too
Oh and just for the record, im not saying this to "show off my good diet" or whatever, or to get attention! Im just contributing
Im sorry I really cant be of any help to you, but atleast you're not the only one
