Am I developing a slight eating disorder? watch

    Anon or delete, this is obviously shameful.

    Obviously I'm not anorexic or anything, so don't think this is me trying to self diagnose.

    Basically in Feb I started eating healthy & committed to actually doing some exercise (not much; running alternate mornings & doing 1/2 hour of weights on the other days, but better than nothing). So for the first time ever I started counting calories and coming out at about 1000 each day, give or take 100-200.

    Thing is, I had 1450 yesterday & had a bit of a freak out. I know perfectly well it's below my BMR (1850) & my needed calories (about 2500), but no matter what I tried I couldn't stop getting worked up and annoyed at myself for going over 1000.

    Is this anything to worry about, or am I just being a little pussy? (I'm a guy if it matters).

    Just try not to worry about it, if you feel yourself worrying about eating a certain amount, make yourself eat a bit more, then you might see that nothing bad will happen as a result, and it won't be such a worry anymore?

    if it doesn't happen everyday, you should be okay

    and unless you've got more symptoms other than the calorie thing, you should be fine

    try lookin up other symptoms of anorexia/bulimia/anything else just to make sure

    Man up. Eat some burgers.

    Seriously, you're going to need a lot more than 1000 calories/day unless you're 8 stone and sitting in a chair all day. Force yourself to eat more.
