You are kinda contradicting yourself by saying, "I've done this a few times before and managed to keep the weight off when eating normally again..." yet you need to lose weight now so then, you didnt keep it off. IDK how old you were when you tried this extreme diet before or how old you are now, but that can make a difference in how your body is reacting. It is much easier to lose weight when we are younger. If you really want to lose weight and truly keep it off, you need a life change, not a diet. Stop looking for the quick fix because there isnt one, at least not one that is healthy. You have a child to take care of, right? So you need to start by taking care of yourself. You didnt gain the weight in a short period of time so dont expect to lose it in a short period. Good, safe, healthy weight loss is slow and steady. You probably already know that. Im just saying, why make yourself suffer through extreme diets when they get you basically nowhere in the long run? The goal is to lose it and keep it off. Very minimum amount of calories a day for a woman is 1200. MINIMUM. You can eat 5 times a day, good choices, not starve, and lose weight. And the more you exercise, the more weight you will lose.

It's going to be really hard, actually pretty much impossible, to gain any noticeable weight in just 5 days. The best advice I can offer you is to just flaunt what you got! I feel you on the whole commenting on weight thing...I don't think it's right either, whether the person is underweight or overweight. But if people make comments, so what? They are probably just jealous anyway ;) However, you are pretty underweight for your height. I'm glad to hear you don't starve yourself or anything, because that's definitely no good. Some people just have really fast metabolisms. Have you ever had your thyroid checked? It wouldn't hurt to bring it up to your Dr next time you go in...you could be hyperthyroid, which would cause you to have a hard time gaining weight. They check it with a simple blood test and if they find that you actually do have hyperthyroidism, it can be regulated with medications, no big deal. It definitely wouldn't hurt you to gain some weight, espcially since it would make you feel better. Even like 5-10lbs. If you want to gain weight, I reccommend spacing your meals out into 5-6 smaller meals instead of a couple larger ones. You don't necessarily have to count calories. It might just drive you nuts lol. Try adding more calorie dense, but healthy, foods to your diet. Here's a list of some healthy weight-gain foods: -peanut butter/nut butters -nuts/seeds -dried fruits -bananas -avocados -olive oil -2% or whole milk/yogurts -natural cheeses -hummus -eggs -more carbs (whole grain pastas, breads, bagels, rice, potatos/sweet potatos, etc) -more protein (chicken breast, ground beef/turkey, fish, salmon, eggs, etc) -dark chocolate (70% or higher) -100% fruit juices or milk to drink instead of water You could also get Ensure or Boost drinks at your grocery or drugstore. They taste kind of like milkshakes. Each 8oz bottle has 250 calories (350 for the Plus varieties), come in different flavors, and contain vitamins. I drank them when I was in the hospital for anorexia recovery and they helped me put on weight. As far as exercise goes, try strength training at least 2-3X per week. Adding a bit of muscle weight is good and will help you fill out. Good luck and remember to always be confident in the body you have!

Music forces you to eat more. According to a work by the journal Psychology and Marketing, soft, classical tunes encourage someone to take time over your mealtime, so you consume more foodstuff. So, switch off – silence will always make you more aware of what you’re applying your mouth.

Be blue! Weirdly, azure shades have been proven to get a positive effect on your will certainly to exercise regularly and fight bad foods. So, wear glowing blue, eat from blue plates watching the pounds drop off!

give your protein extra low calorie flavor by adding a salsa or chutney instead of a gooey cream sauce

I doubt you've really gained nine pounds. it may be all water, or you might just poop most of it out. I think you could probably only gain about 3 pounds in a week. just wait it out. i think it will go away by itself. 94 pounds is on the light side for your height. you don't need to worry about losing weight at your age. I'm sure you are beautiful and healthy
