  • always cold, never hungry

    Take it from someone who last year, was 17 years old 5'9" and 105 lbs., you are too thin. When I weighed between 105 and 115 lbs. I was ALWAYS cold, anemic, my periods stopped, and I rarely ate more 800 calories a day. Your body needs at least 1200 calories a day MINIMUM to maintain healthy bodily function, and that's if you aren't active at all. I also know what you mean about appetite. I don't have a very large appetite either, or when I am hungry, eat, feel full, but still feel hungry (weird feeling) but I have found a great way to up my calories, restart my appetite (most of the time), and restore my health. I hope this helps.

    Every morning I drink 1 - 2 quarts of lemon water (organic lemon peel and a pinch of salt per quart) 1 to 2 hours before breakfast. I just sip on it slowly while I do my morning chores, work on last minute homework, and get ready for school.

    This stimulates appetite and rehydrates the body.

    For breakfast I usually have smoothie of some king with a nut mylk (usually brazil nut) or coconut water (balances electrolytes in the body) base. If it's to much I just pop what I can't drink into a portable beverage container and take it with me to school, and sip on it whenever I can until I finish it.

    For lunch I have a salad (various lettuces and veggies) with a dressing of lemon juice, a squirt of flaxseed oil, a sprinkle of sea salt, and a large sprinkle of nutritional yeast.

    For dinner I try to eat or drink whatever is on hand.

    This may sound vague but everybody has a varying lifestyle which makes some things more "workable" than others. Everyone has to find a system that works for them.

    Like right now I'm trying to incorporate more vegetable and fruit juices to get more vital nutrients and minerals into

    my body.

    You might try some superfoods if you can save up to get a hold of a few of them or if you mom is willing to pay for some.

    raw cacao powder (great source of magnesium and tryptophan)

    camu camu powder (great if your anemic, high in iron)

    lucuma powder

    mesquite (has all essential amino acids)

    maca powder (great source of vitamin b12, protein, and prmotes female fertility. I have been taking 1 -2 tbs. a day for a month now and my period just came back after not having it for over a year!)

    hemp seed and hemp protein powder (omega- fatty acids)

    bee pollen (all essential amino acids, omega-fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals)

    chia seed (high in iron and calcium, as well as being a great protein source)

    flax seed (has all the nutrients you get from eating grain but you only need a couple tbs. ground up a day)

    golji berries (great antioxidant and has more vitamin C than anything other food on the planet so far)

    I recommend eating (or drinking) spinach, or eating a couple of brazil nuts (or drinking brazil nut mylk) to get selenium and zinc. Eat bananas for potassium and pineapple for bromine.

    I also recommend taking acidopholis for health intestinal flora which also assists with appetite.

    I could go on and on but I think you get the picture. All your symptoms is your bodies way of saying it's mineral and vitamin deficient, and that you aren't getting enough energy due to low calorie intake. For your age and height your body's BMR (the amount of calories your body would burn if you laid in bed all day and didn't do anything) is about 1780 calories!

    I hope you feel better soon and that at least something in this post was useful. Good luck! :)
