Question: I am anorexic. i regularly exercise and do not plan to give that up. Really i am more interested in what sort of diet i should have to safely put on a bit of weight. edit: i am aware it is not safe to be anorexic.... that is why i want to put on weight... how ever i think it very close minded of you to say that saftey shouldn't be an issue.

I'd like to start by saying GOOD FOR YOU! If you're anorexic, then you've just taken your first step in getting better by aknowledging your problem and asking for help. That's awesome!! As far as what you should eat... the best person to ask is a nutritionist. They will ask you some questions about your daily habits, exercise routine and what foods you do allow yourself to have. I would't try to jump into any type of high-calorie, high-fat diet right away, because if your body isn't used to food, it will just make you sick. Start slowly with pieces of bread and fruits/veggies, and maybe shakes like slim fast, etc. to get extra calories into your system. You will also need protein, expecially if you're exercising a lot. Start with something light like fish, then move to chicken before trying anything heavy like red meats. Then go from there, judging how your body is reacting. Best of luck on your road to a healthier lifestyle!!

Believe it or not the best way to lose weight safely is time. If you try to lose too much weight in a short period of time, the sag will be terrible. I have been on my journey for 10 months and have lost 60 pounds so far. I am almost 39 years old and I have no sag. I have 25 pounds left to go, and I will be at my goal weight. I set my weight loss time at a year and a half, prob could have lost it way faster, but I didnt want all the skin to be left.

Try eating what you are, then add a 'diet' drink to your daily habbits. It sound backward but they are packed with more nutrients than most meals, so adding them to your meals instead of replacing they with your meal they will help. There are also dirnks in the same format for people in your situation found near these too. Also try adding bananas to your breakfast cereal etc. Hope this helps Also get a GP to put you on an eating plan for this, as my school firend did this.

If you are diagnosed anorexic, then speak to your doctor about safely putting on weight. You still need to eat healthy, but consume enough calories to eventually get you to a safe/healthy weight. There may be some info online that will help you also, if you do a search on safely gaining weight. See if this is helpful http://www.teenhealth.net/Med%20Tips%20-... (I did a search on 'safely gain weight'...no quotes)

i dont understand why safety is an issue if you're anorexic...you do know that being anorexic isn't exactly safe?

I would try things like protein shakes and some more carbs. Exercise is good but you need to break this eating cycle. Please start changing your eating asap, if you find you are unable to do it get some counseling before you are in real danger healthwise. -S
