I Cant Gain Weight, Small Appetite! Help

Recommended Posts

hello everyone

This is the first time on here. though i would give it a try, don't know where else to turn.

i was at a stable 135lbs for years now i am struggling with my wight and my appetite. i was diagnosed about 2years ago with celiac.

The only thing that was helping with an appetite was smoking weed. but that is an expensive habit and i cant afford it no more because i just had a new baby. Now i have a stomach specialist the one that diagnosed me with celiac and i know for a fact that i have it because i break out with rashes and i become violently sick when i consume any form of gluten. anyways i ask him if he could prescribe me some medicinal weed and apparently that is out of the question. he told me that i have nothing wrong with my stomach i have done several tests. barium swallow follow through and stomach camera. I got a hernia in my esophagus from the blowding from the gluten. and i take a acid reduction medication for that and that is under control.

now i have a family history of depression. and i think i have anxity that messes with my appetite and i was on a medication for that for awhile but it didnt help me so i just got off of it a few days ago. it was ciprelax and apparently one of the side effects is weight gain but it didnt do anything for me. now i am at the point where i just want to give up on everything. at my lowest weight of my life 122 it sucks and woke up this morning with barley and energy and i feel right out of it. i am having problems even thinking. and hope that this site will have some body that can help me. now i misses my appointment for a phycitrist that was going to hear what i had to say and maby put me on a medication that could help me with my problem. now i will stop here.

let me know what you think. thanks alot!!!!!!!

Eat fats like raw walnuts, cashews, and pecans. Like a handful throughout the day. Eat half an avocado a day. Gluten free tortilla chips (I can eat half a bag a day lol). Bobs red mill gluten free hot cereal with agave sweetener and flax seeds on top and a banana. Soy yogurt if you tolerate soy. Saute veggies in olive oil. Quinoa pasta with soy cheese (I get Daiya its the only one without dairy proteins even though the others say theyre soy cheese grrr). Make homemade burgers without the buns. Get gluten free cookies and have protein shakes with coconut milk. Eat whole thai young coconuts. Have brown rice with veggies with olive oil on top. Take fish oil supplements. Have yams and potatoes. Fruit, yogurt, with nuts and gluten free chocolate pieces.

Hope that helps!!

I'm so sorry you are feeling that badly.

The list above sounds perfect for both your mood and weight.

Some vitamin deficiencies can cause a person to lose their appetite.

Be sure you take vitamin supplements and get enough B and D.

Can you get your vitamin levels checked?

I have trouble eating too.

Espeically a meal.

I find taking a bite every half hour or so works when I really don't wanna eat.

Make sure you get enough protein. Lack of protein and good fats don't help depression.

I hope you feel better soon.

Congratulations on your new baby!!

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.
