So, I've been low restricting for about two weeks now. I already lost about 5 pounds, and am trying to get down to 90 (I was 109.8, now I'm 104.4; also, I'm 5'3.5") before the end of the summer. I know that there are many unpleasant side effects to malnutrition, and I also know that it's hard to get all of the nutrients needed when low restricting. Could you tell me if what I ate today would give me what I need?
20 peanuts- for the healthy fats and the protein
1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter- same as the peanuts, also I love it so much
An undressed salad with no toppings, just kale, red cabbage, and sliced broccoli stalks- for the iron and fiber in the kale, the protein in the cabbage, and the calcium in the broccoli
Later I'm probably going to have some celery, carrots, or green beans. Also probably something involving beans or potatoes; a tiny portion though. I would actually prefer not to have this, but ya know; it's not so easy to get out of dinner.
And on another note, I overheard my parents talking about me in the living room. My mom was saying to my dad, "She hasn't been eating enough lately. She's lost like four pounds since she was at the doctor's a week and a half ago! (haha I actually lost 5.4) I'm pretty sure that she has a history with bad eating habits; she's 5'5", and was like 90 pounds on her wedding day, so I guess that she must kinda recognize the signs. Thank god for my dad. He was like, "It's fine. We were just on vacation, so she must have gained weight and now she's losing it." Well, we were on vacation, but that was like a month ago, and I sure as hell didn't gain 5 pounds!
So yeah... Just respond with if you think that I'm getting enough nutrition, and what I could do to improve it. Also some ways to get my mom off my back!
