I had a recent post about always being cold and having a major loss of appetite. Since then, maybe 3 weekS, I've dropped about ten pounds. I'm 17, 5"9 and hovering At 105 pounds. I've been vegan for a year, vegetarian for 4, and 80% raw for about 7 weeks. Everyone I know tells me I look sick/anorexic. My hair is falling out, my nails are blue, skin is dry, I'm breaking out. I'm not doing this intentionally. I just have a poor appetite, no cravings (except for pistachios now And then). I have been drinking more water and it's helped a bit but not enough to make any improvements. This is a typical day for me:
6:45 chug a bottle of water, sip on kombucha until 730
8:30 typically still not hungry, but will eAt an apple while in class
10:00 not hungry but usually start to be cold...eat a go raw granola or pumpkin bar, or a couple dried figs and so some pistachios
3:30 I get home from school or arrive at work. If I'm at home, I'll make a green smoothie or eat some nuts and dried fruit. If im at work, I make a green juice (16 oz carrot spinach celery a lil bit of apple) or another kombucha...I work at a health food store
6:30 salad with 1/5 avocado or cooked beans (usually black beans with salsa or red beans)
I have to stop there or I know I'll be screwed the next day...not hungry, bitchy, groggy.
So despite that, I'm also looking for advice to gain weight in muscle form.
