Lemme tell you right now, being skinny doesn’t mean you’re healthy in the slightest. Can mean quite the opposite. You have lost weight in one of the worst ways possible really. Do you not find it sucks to be too tired to go out, or maybe not being able to carry your schoolbags for long? How do you find PE these days?
A few things:
Fat is good for you, but pizza and garlic bread everyday isn’t. (It’s not always real fat even). I bet it’s a bland margherita too. Pretty much every day. Food can be fun! But it’s like everything, variety is the spice of life, too much of it just makes you sick of it.
I’m stressing not everyday, mate. Have it every few days if you fancy. You might find a little break makes it taste better even!
-Tango<Fruit juice<yoghurt<real fruit+milk/real food in general. Tango isn’t real sugar.
Your Chemistry teacher will tell you that saturated fat from meat and the like is better for you than a Tango. A bit of beef will help with the anaemia (not a MacDonalds or Burger King or any takeaway meat, btw). And again, you don’t need loads. It’s moderation.
I could go on.
However you claim to know all of this, quoting the likes of hydrogenated fats and admitting how unhealthy yet addictive they can be in excess, which makes me worry for you more. Most people don’t know that, you do. That gives you power.
You say you prefer to have vitamin deficiencies than diabetes? What if I told you that, by not eating well (i.e. vitamin deficiency) your body will find it hard to deal with all the pizza (hydrogenated fat) and that will, not eventually, quite soon at this rate, make you diabetic AND vitamin-deficient? Double-whammy. You’re young, you can stop this.
Do you have a school nurse? Go to GP, say how you don’t know what to eat? Honestly, get some help.
You only have one childhood, and one body. So please don’t abuse it like you currently are. It doesn’t get any easier.
