So I was googling stuff, and one of the results brought me to My Fitness Pal
I used this site for a little while a while back. In fact, I logged in and my info said I was 80 pounds trying to get to 85. And I still had my calories set at 1000. So, very beginning of recovery, last time I used it.
Okey so I was like well now I want to see how much this thinks I should eat.
I made a new account..put in my info (roughly 100 lbs. 5’2”. Girl. 17. Lot’s of activity). And it said 1800. Now the site I used last week said to get 2,245.
That is a 400 calorie difference..a small meal.
Not even concidering the fact that as a recovered/recovering anorexic it has been said that I will need to eat more calories to maintain my weight. (Not sure how true this is or how much more I am supposed to eat)
Now I don’t count them because I fear that will trigger me. But I keep in mind a rough estimate of how much I have had so I know that I have gotten enough. And if there was a difference of say 100 calories on these two sites I would just be like ehh, close enough. But when it’s a small meal that I could be under or over eating, it makes me wonder how much I am supposed to get..
If anyone could get at my ask box to help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated!!
I would have written more but dinner is done.
Guys If anyone here knows anything about this stuff (which I am assuming at least half of my followers do) could you help me out, please?
