What Did I Do To Myself This Time

So i think i may know the culprit for this and its sort of my fault and sort of not- i ran out of money for food

last night for dinner i had lumbarg rice chips-yes thats all i had, then for breakfast this morning i had a banana-yes thats all i had, and i had to skip lunch because i was broke- I wake up at 4:30am for work it is now 2:37 all i have had to eat today is a banana so far- well i just got home from the store (payday today) and i just sliced up a apple(i really hope a apple is ok on my sensative stomic(i did not eat the skin)) but my hands are shaking like crazy, my nuckels are turning purple, and my skin on my hand keeps cracking open like little gash marks, Is this because im malnurshed(didnt eat enough) or is this caused by something else???

in about 30 i am going to cook up some sirlon cut pork, and put it on a romain lettece salad with carrots and the crumbs from my lumbarg chips-mmmmmm. One of my main problems is i never get hungry anymore or atleast i dont think i do- my stomic growls at me alot though so i guess that could be it telling me to eat but it will do it even when i have aten.

It sounds like you didn't eat enough and that could be causing your symptoms. I would be really shaky and sick if that's all I ate in a day. Your pork salad sounds good. That might make you feel better.

You probably need to get some more protein in your diet if your stomach can handle it. If you eat some protein earlier in the day it might help. Try to stock up on cheap protein, like eggs, nuts, beans, lentils, peanut butter, seeds...stuff like that. Rice and beans or rice and lentils are good, easy to make, cheap meals.

it's good that you are learning to pay attention to the signals your body is sending. You are going to have a lot of trial and error while you figure out what bothers you and what doesn't. You may be highly sensitive to a lot of things right now because your system is reacting to everything. If you stick to a VERY simple diet (yeah it may be monotonous for a while) you may be able to get past this. DO NOT starve yourself. Eat whenever you are hungry. You may be having issues with raw vegetables, stick with only cooked veggies for now. If you are going to eat apples, try baking them or just eat applesauce for a while, the apple is good for you but in it's raw state may still be too hard on you.

I'm just throwing out ideas... For meals I would stick with mashed potatoes or baked potatoes (dairy free for now) or rice (steamed) and baked meats. Clean organic meats are the easiest for a sensitive system to tolerate, yeah they are more expensive, but once you taste them you might never want traditionally processed meats again. For vegetables, stick with cooked mild vegetables, corn and broccolli MIGHT be too hard to digest right now and gas causing, so avoid for the time being. I would stick with squash, avocados, grean beans, peas, lima beans...

Bananas are fine, try making smoothies, Apple juice, bananas, frozen peaches, after a while you may be able to add berries or other fruits.

anyway, eat often, don't wait so long between meals. and good luck
