I have been around these forums for a while, reading all the interesting posts and decided to create an account to join the action.
For the past year or so i've was a freshman in college and physically it wasn't a great year for me. I guess you can say I cared about my body but lacked information. I worked out way too much because i was afraid of getting fat, and on top of that I would only eat really healthy foods for the same reason. I guess in other words, you can say that i had a ED.
Now in summer, i realize that I have lost about 15 lbs since college and i have heard some pretty scary stories about ED's so I am ready for a change. I lowered my running because i can't afford to lose anymore weight and maintained my weight training . However, the thing i'm the most concerned about is my diet.
This is where i really need help on because i want to just increase to my normal weight. Its extremely hard for me becasue i have been used to this "healthy" eating lifestyle for so long. Whenever i see unhealthy food, i immediatly turn my head away unless i am with friends or something (i try to hide this healthy lifestyle as much as possible). Due to this lifestyle, i can see my weight dropping as I'm starting to see my ribs in the mirror. I really would just want to gain some weight, but i find it so hard to eat unhealthy food.
i know i have some pschological ED or something and should go see a doctor and will do so if i don't see any results by the end of summer. I read the massive eating article here on this site and went to the store and bought the foods the author recommended (Cottage Cheese, Skim milk, chicken breast, deli meat, natty pb, etc.) i just really need help setting up a diet. Sorry for this long and boring post, but any help would be appreciated...
i'm 5'11'' male and only 135lbs (used to be 150)
since it's the summer now, i don't have access to the schools gym. I plan on resuming "real" working out in september. here's my summer workout:
Wed,Sat - Run 2-3 miles
Rest of the week - crunches, pushups, train with dumbells
play bball 2-3 times a week
i can't elatborate on my workout more if you guys want, but what i really need help is on a diet. i know there are a lot of posts on the "bulking diet" but most of them just say , "eat everything in sight", but as described in my situation above it's really hard for me to do so (although i'm slowly trying to change that).
well.. thx for reading this... any help would be appreciated..
