The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Early satiety -- Great for Cutting, Not so Great for Bulking

    I'm not going to recapitulate in full detail my situation -- those unfamiliar with it are welcome to peruse my journal
    -- but suffice to say that: A) I'm severely overtrained (am working on this, don't worry); B) am dramatically underweight (you don't even want to know my tested BF%; and C) am male, 20, and have an incredibly high metabolism/activity level.

    That said, I'm trying, after a particularly hellish summer, to regain not only the weight I've lost but also my appetite. I have spent far too long starving myself, wrecking myself, ruining myself; this cannot continue; this must not continue.

    My problem now is that I seem to have little appetite for food. I seem to get uncomfortably full very easily, and I find that most meals simply don't seem appetizing or appealing in any sense. I should note that, for those who are unfamiliar with my unique biology, my options are a good deal more limited than the average individual's -- I'm fatally allergic to all dairy, nut, and shellfish products, as well as to most fruits, some vegetables, and a few assorted random comestibles.

    Has anyone had a similar experience? Any tips on dealing with this aggravating sense of satiety?

    digestive aids:

    full spectrum enzymes
    Betaine HCL OR Apple Cider Vinegar
    Probiotics (Acidophilus,Bifidus)

    and perhaps a colon/systemic cleanse

    I would have to assume your digestion is comprimised

    RenewLife makes a really good cleanse called Cleanse Smart

    I could never eat enough solid food whilst cleansing on it

    Thanks, Holto.

    Not only do I have no appetite and little capacity for food, I also seem to get, toward the end of the day, dizzy/bloated -- legs feel weird, weak, and overall I feel....out of it. I'm a bit concerned about an electrolyte imbalance, given that I drink an obscene amount of water, eat very little salt, and use a lot of NoSalt (KCl).

    Eat more foods containing sodium then.

    I take it your medical dr has no theories on this

    if you can I would consult with a Naturopathic Dr

    what you are describing could be Candida or Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia

    and if this has progressed into leaky gut you could have Candida in your blood which explains the weakness and lack of mental acuity
