Talk to your parents and see if their health insurance will cover a nutritionist, they are very helpful with food and weight loss. Why am I feeling this way?? That does not sound good at all. Quite possibly you have heliobactor or small intestine bacteria overload SIBO , and it would be the best thing to do is to go to the dr and get a breath test to start off with.

There is a very not very accurate information in this article. As many on Paleo do not count calories, and only count carbs. Not their healthy calorie intake. I think information needs to be accurate if you are going to be putting it out here.
Except literally the point is that people are focusing too much on counting carbs and are neglecting their caloric intake, which winds up being incredibly low.
This is exactly the type of unhealthy perspective that leads people to get in this situation. Two people eating paleo may have vastly different daily calorie counts depending on the types of food they enjoy. Some people do very well not counting calories by sheer luck—they are fortunate enough to like the right things in the right amounts.
However, at the end of the day, weightloss and weight maintenance is CICO calories-in-calories-out. If you take in too few calories on a regular basis which is super easy to do on paleo , you will have problems. I was actually chronically exhausted after switching to paleo for this very reason.

By contrast is such a low calorie diet that your body will not trust you because you are actually starving it.
That only leads to one thing: Think of your body in its most basic animal form — if you starve it, it will fight back by forcing you to binge which in your case, leads back to your Bulimia. Try to think of nourishing your body, not punishing it and the weight will seriously start to come off. What is wrong with me?

Doctors are just throwing me around. I feel like my T is going back up. My hair loss is still happening but has slowed some. My headaches still happen just not as often.

I used to be so tired and hungry, I could hardly cook, I have Fibro too.

You can wait until some thing is cooked, and lose weight as you do this. Some thing that is simple, is to put a piece of meat, in a baking dish in the oven, cook until nearly done, and throw some broccoli, or some such into the dish and then cook until done.
Adding salt and spices, and maybe more fat to cook it. I cook chicken and other meat ahead as well, as most are good cold. I would suggest when you get the energy to make food that you make easy to make meals ahead of time.

I am a year-old female. Used to weigh about to — ate pretty clean and worked out by lifting and doing cardio. Did that for years.
The last five years or so it has been more difficult to get to the gym but I still go and try and stay active. My son is older now so I can no longer take him to the daycare. Now that he is 14 I can get in there about 3 good days a week and supplement cardio at home. I hate working out at home. I am terrible about it and do better if I go to the gym.

You need to have a certain amount of body fat or your body thinks there I not enough food around to support a baby and so keeps you from getting pregnant by stopping or delaying your monthly.
