Weight gain help

I’ve seen posts that offer help with losing weight, but I need help gaining weight and keeping it.

I suffer from anorexia nervous due to past trauma and find it very hard to stay a healthy weight. I am 5’2 and because of stress throughout the month I am down to 79 pounds, when normally I stay around 85.

I do all I can to limit stress and do not take medications due to addiction issues. I get almost ok, then stress happens and boom, back down goes the weight. Doctors want to put me on anti anxiety meds but I refuse to go through that again.

If you’re trying to gain weight, high-calorie meals with a lot of protein helps. Eat one big meal a day, with a lot of red meat and grains/starches. That’s the sort of diet powerlifters and sumo wrestlers eat when they’re bulking up.

I would if I could. I find it almost impossible to have any kind of appetite and am unable to eat. I love food though, cooking, baking… but when stressed I cannot even eat the cake I bake.

Sometimes you gotta force yourself to eat it. When you’re body is hungry but stress makes it hard, usually once you force a bit down, your appetite returns.

Try apetamin…it is a vitamin syrup that increases your appetite. You can either get the tablets or the syrup.

I too suffered from trauma…and that made gain weight from 96lbs to 115lbs.

Hey,
I dont’ know how much can this help, but here there are my 2 cents:

I was underweight (between 154.3 and 167.6 lb at 6.3 height, the doctors recomended at least 198) , and too nervous to eat.

I tried forcing myself to eat but I’ve found that drinking a LOT of mass gainers (450 / 500 kcal per shaker) helped most. Also sugar helps with spiking insuline, wich helps in keeping the hunger higher.

For the stress part, i found that meditating helped me a lot in putting everything in prospective, so that the forcing part became “more digestible” (sorry fo the pun).
I hope this helps,
best of luck for everything!

If you like tea you can try caraway, yarrow, fennel, blueberry, sage, lavender, dandelion, currant or elderberry for example. They are said to awaken or increase your appetite.

Make sure you buy the real herb, not just a tea made from artificial flavours.

Buy a mass gainer seriously it’s a protein powder with 1,000+ calories , make a shake a day with other food .

Liquid calories help you gain weight since they don’t make you feel full.

Avoid coffee and eat whenever you can , if you start fasting for hours after waking up then your appetite is not going to kick in

Try the Hebrew pendulum, you can build it yourself with the cork of a bottle. You can do self-treatments for all kinds of physical, psychological and emotional conditions with it. Unfortunately all the material I have is in Spanish, or else I would pass it on to you.

I took a supplement containing ashwaganda for a while that regulates cortisol and Seemed to work well to get rid of stress, When your stress is chronic, your brain gets hard wired to that condition and it stays that way. Ashwaganda can help to reverse it. The specific thing I took is Now Super Cortisol Support

Hello there I hope you doing well!
Well weight gaining is actually taking more calories than you use on a basic day for a man it is 2200 kcal and woman 1800 at most 2000 kcal.
If you use allot of energie because work or other things in a basic day than you have to take more calories on a day.
If you have difficulty with eating I food I suggest you to buy a ‘ weight gainer’ shake
But keep in mind this shake work at his best with a healthy dieet
But my personal suggestion is… if you have difficulties than this is a good solution temporarily!
After try to take these calories from real food!

WISH YOU THE BEST!

Okay, you have very good advice here.

What I can add is to work the magick along what people here is telling you. To get to a healthy weight your best friend is the goddess Artemis. She is prefect for woman who lift or work out in any other way (yes, yoga probably included).

Try to get her hymn and summon her, explain your issues. Trust me, she’ll help you.
