    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
