    Lost 21 pounds and my stomach shrank :/


    Ey guys,

    Well about three weeks ago I had the stomach flu and lost around 10-12 pounds, but I recovered relatively quick. Then right after some personal issues come up and I've been depressed and haven't been able to eat. I've lost 21 pounds as of today and my stomach has shrunken. I try to eat even a slice of pizza and I can't finish the whole thing. I'm never hungry and whenever I try to force feed I just feel like I'm choking. I feel the weight just falling off of me and I feel weaker every day. Are there any methods that people use to kick start their appetite again? I really need help.

    I find if you drink a lot of water with and around meals it expands your stomach a bit. Just start slowly and introduce bigger portions. Also, if i was you id be using protien shakes and weight gainers while your appetite is low to get your calories.

    If you want supps to increase appetite i find Animal m-stack and pes anabeta do this well.

    This is likely a psychological issue more than anything else. You might consider going to some therapy sessions to see if they help during this time. Nothing wrong with that. Think of it as personal training for your brain.

    Yeah, I'm with MDiocre. Could of course just be a lot of stress, but if you continue to have problems, definitely get it checked out.
    Highly recommend this supplement that has helped me lose weight with diet and exercise: http://www.pagg.me

    Good news brahs. I drank a 40g protein shake today. Felt like puking afterwards And it was only 20 ounces of liquid. Then I hit the gym, didn't go too heavy. Kept everything for 10-12 reps. Only lifted for an hour felt a little bit hungry, then I went into the sauna for 15 minutes and when I came out I was starving and had a craving for pho. So I decided to take the opportunity to eat a lot and go to my favorite pho joint. Ate a large bowl of shrimp pho. Hopefully I digest it quickly and can squeeze in another shake before bed. It's a start and is a whole or better than I have been eating

    PYY has been shown in people with anorexia (which you had a case of)

    PYY has been shown (gut hormone) to reduce appetite independant of leptin, which is strange. Correcting it may be tricky, i would try liquid cals to boost leptin, then diet with low cals to drop leptin and increase NPY (hunger signal) and see where that goes

    I've tried that. It kinda worked because I ate a ton (although not good foods) but the next day I was super hungry and ate good

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    your most likely depressed, since depression causes loss of appetite as well. take some testosterone and some mood enhancer. maybe sam-e.

    A few ways to kick start your metabolism are eating a lot of protein in smaller quantities. Make sure these are lean proteins, you want the cals to be low so you can eat more often. Spice your foods, using red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper in your meals. Some Herbal Remedies to help fight bloating: Bruchu, Cranberry, Dandelion, Horse Chestnut, Parsley and Uva Ursi .
