my dumbass has been eating less than or only slightly over 100 calories for most of the year and other than unrelated mental health problems i've been fine, like even when i'm not constantly thinking about (undiagnosed but certainly) anorexic shit i still eat ridiculously low cal without thinking. is it because i'm short? is there just some weird law of nature preventing me from kneeling over and dying when i pull this bullshit? my entire family has been warning me that this is going to put my body in survival mode like i'm some feral animal in the jungle but i feel completely okay with this.

i have posted about mental problems before but i'm certain that most of them are unrelated to the fucked up eating issues (with the exception of obsessive compulsive and the likes, which i *do* have diagnosed). i think i might actually be cheating death. Holy Balls.

So you've been eating about 100 calories a day for the past nine months and have not experienced any health complications? That's incredible. You're extremely lucky. It's true that short people need fewer calories than tall people, yes, but everybody needs a lot more than 100 calories. 100 calories is almost nothing. It's amazing that you haven't experienced any health issues, but please, please, please, try to up your calorie limit. You cannot survive on 100 calories for very long. Sooner or later, you will experience negative complications.

thank you for the second opinion, good god. i have this awful habit of doing smoothbrained shit, getting away with it for far too long, and having said thing backfire in the most comically horrible manner. i don't really know what to put after this.

i'll try going up to something that isn't borderline death, this could've probably messed up my metabolism so bad. again, thank you for the well worded response.

i’m not saying that you’re lying but if your stats were correct and you really were eating 100 calories for several months, surely you’d be at a bmi low enough to give you serious side effects by now? something here is off

Either by "most of the year" you mean actually a very small part of the year, or you're wildly wrong about your intake, or your stats

 

Nobody can survive long term on 100 cal a day without health problems, even a morbidly obese person with tons of extra body fat could not do so

 

Also I'm not buying "lol is 100 cal a day not normal?" and pretending that you're just starting to wonder this after months of extreme starvation. What's your motivation for telling lies?

 

I don't like to be combative on this website, but I know you don't defy the laws of thermodynamics.

i’m not wanting to insinuate you’re lying but as someone who ate 100-300 max for almost a year .. the side effects were horrendous. we’re currently pretty much the same weight ( I’m weight restored ) & weight. You’re either not being truthful or miscalculating calories

9 months on 100 would p much kill you - something's not adding up

I'd look at your intake and find a proper intake (looking into high restriction - and no, your body will not defy thermodynamics - in the long run even 1000-1200 will be loads better for long term.  And for avoiding binge phases)

High restricting is the way for me because slow and steady wins the race. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you end the day on a calorie deficit, you have won.

Height: 5 foot 7 / 171cms,
Highest Weight: 180 pounds / 82 kgs, (BMI 28.0)
Lowest Weight: 85 pounds / 39 kgs, (BMI 13.3)

ULTIMATE GOAL WEIGHT (again): 85 pounds / 39 kgs OR LOWER!!!

Why are we even second guessing the veracity of this post?
Go troll someone else.
This is going to do someone's head in and they're going to physically and mentally beat themselves up for it.

OP sorry but as much as I try to give everyone benefit of the doubt.... There's only so much of a degree to laws of thermodynamics one can break....
Posts like this I don't know if perhaps you found funny? To troll and ED site bit like someone pointed out someone younger [most likely] though certainly older is possible...but someone could fixate purely on the claim 100 calories most of the year and decide they too do not eat anymore than that amount ...If someone else is "fine" well than by all means....
Hell I will complain my metabolism is atrocious until I am blue in the face and if I actually believed this then I do have the potential to think well maybe I could take a couple hundred off [even though symptoms already suck]
Hypothetical of course but what if those "couple hundred " was the very amount keeping me alive for the minute? Allowing an already struggling heart just enough energy to keep beating...
Sorry but would you want to tell my daughter
Someone's mother
Father
Brother
Sister etc...
That you one day were bored and decided to post something stupid that triggered another individual to make a decision that killed them?
If you look all over this site many longer term anorexics (and other eds of course but since we are in the AN forum) and those who have been on MPA for quite some sometime....and frequently older members especially parents...
We are constantly going mother hen like towards everyone else....to butterflies who flock to the site, to trolls, to those ready to give recovery a real chance we try to embrace and maybe even give them a gentle maybe getting off MPA for a minute would be helpful...too those who are very ill we have talked into going to doctors or hospitals and help them know they're worthy of help even if we are totally feeling the opposite...
I've smiled a few times seeing a couple posts where someone was inspired by another's post to go get help or accept help etc...
I've smiled when I see posts sharing resources on how to get some help.
I can't technically speak for everyone but I have yet to see anyone on this site be the type who would want to recruit people into being sick [cough cough starving in suburbia]
Even when we don't have our own best interests at heart and have been stuck for years ....it atleast feels good to help someone before they've dug themselves down 6 feet.

Normally I bite my tongue and stay out of this shit but I'm not feeling particularly like doing so reading this at 3 am.

I can sum this up really easily THINK
And then go learn compassion where you can see eating disorders for what they are and not just someone who is vain wants to be thin and beautiful and doesn't eat.
