Hi! So I'm 16, I live with my grandma, and I've been pro-ana for about 4 years. I moved in with her around January and she's usually at work during the day so I can eat how I want without her getting suspicious or anything...For the most part, unless she brings home food or wants to eat out, I eat 500 calories a day, I exercise every day/every other day, and have breakfast, lunch, and dinner that consist of my safe foods. I am losing weight gradually, but
I'm now wondering if 500 calories a day is too much at this point?
Here's what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: Plain oatmeal- 150 calories; almond milk-30
Lunch: Saltine crackers- 60; cheese slice- 45; brown mustard- 5; unsweetened applesauce- 50
Dinner: Rice- 160
Total: 500 calories
It just seems like so much food when I look at my daily intake...
Also, any suggestions for different and/or healthier safe foods? I know fresh fruits and veggies are really good for you, but I only eat things that have a calorie count and serving size on them.
Here are some of my other safe foods:
-Whole grain cereals
-Fat-free cottage cheese
So what do you think? How many calories should I eat? What are some good safe foods that I should eat?
Thank you for any opinions/suggestions!
Also, I have a medical condition called porphyria that requires me to eat more carbs than the average person. Thanks again!
