It’s been an amazing summer and I’m not quite ready for it to be over yet, but the one thing that I’m most excited about as fall rolls in is that I will have the time and mental space to get back to blogging!
I was wondering if you have come across any people doing veggies for breakfast and a sos-free diet who have lost too much weight. I haven’t gotten my period in five months or so and the overwhelming theory is that my body fat is too low. I am torn as to exactly what to do and I realize there are registered dietitians out there who can probably help guide me but I know you are heavily involved in this fringe community so I thought I would ask for your thoughts. I feel like if I go to an RD with a food log they will think I am insane 🙂
So here are my thoughts on this “situation:”
And while we are on this subject, I’d like to add that I have had some concerns about the use of these nutritional techniques as sort of “Pro-ana” type thang. For those of you unfamiliar with this term, I mean that these techniques might be taken by someone who suffers from an anorexic mind and used to achieve an unnaturally thin and very unhealthy state. You can read more about pro-ana here on Wikipedia. I don’t believe that this was ever the original intention of the doctors and promoters of these nutritional tweaks, but I have definitely seen people take these whole food or plant based dieting ideas too far, IMHO.
I wish you a complete and speedy recovery from your condition. Much love and respect for reaching out to me on this topic!
