You're under eating. Even for losing weight, I would venture to eat more than that. If you want to gain muscle, then you'll need to eat more. Introduce carbs and fats back into your diet slowly, as mentioned ready in your other thread.
Find an online TDEE calculator. Calculate your TDEE. Eat more than that to gain weight, slightly less than that to lose weight.
Stop feeling guilty about eating food. That's not gonna get you anywhere. You should still be able to enjoy your food AND produce the gains in body composition that you want.

I still have a belly I want to get rid of and wouldn't mind losing 10 more lbs, but I do want to add muscle also!!!

You need to decide what you want. Lose 10lbs of fat or build muscle. I would recommend following my original post though, and find out what your TDEE is, and then find out how many calories you typically eat a day.

Yes. There's no need to constantly repost. The forum isn't very active on the weekends.
I revert back to my post stating to calculate your TDEE using an online calculator. That will tell you how many calories to consume to maintain your current weight.
If you want to gain muscle, I would start eating that amount of calories, and then slowly bump it up.
Stop being afraid of food. As long as your total calorie intake is within your alloted range, you will be perfectly fine. You need more than oatmeal, chicken, and lettuce.
Protein: Lean meats
Fat: Nuts, Avacado, Olive Oil ect
Carbs: Rice, pasta, quinoa, potatoes, grains
1.0g of protein per lb of bodyweight
+0.5g of fat per lb of bodyweight
The rest, enjoy some carbs.
Part of the reason you have no energy is because you're under eating. Part of the reason your libido is down is because there's n fat in your diet. Fat is a good thing.

Gotcha makes sense, I will add oatmeal to my die at in the morning, then add maybe handful of peanuts per day? I eat around 1200 calories per day

You've also posted this in the General Chat forum. There will be feedback if placed in a more appropriate section

I will increase my protein start eating oatmeal and handful of peanuts per day I lost so much weight in stomach that it's a little flabby at the bottom and want to continue to lose that and get a flat stomach what should I do? Increase cardio and do crunches????
01-18-2014, 11:54 AM
No. Crunches won't do a damn thing.
Calculate your TDEE. Eat that to maintain weight, eat 250 calories less than that to lose weight, eat more than that to gain muscle. You've been given advice. You say you wanna gain muscle=eat more. Now you say lose fat=eat SLIGHTLY below your TDEE. I don't know how else to say it.
I also gave you advice on food, yet you want to stick with only oatmeal.
You feel like crap because you barely eat anything.

Sean is giving u some good advice here...
Don't b scared to eat..
Just oatmeal is not enough..
1 handful of peanuts is also not enough...
U gotta kick start ur metabolism...
For cardio: first thing in the morning on an empty stomach n before bed after ur last meal...
If u plan on training u need fuel... Eat eat eat...
