Moreover, you may be like most anorexics who have stopped having periods. If so, you have the added hurdle of overcoming anovulation (failure to ovulate) before you can even get pregnant. ...Read more

See your doctor to look into this. ...Read more

I want to gain weight since I am very thin. What should I eat to get proteins? I am vegetarian. Thanks in advance!

Nuts, eggs, cheese..: The best protein sources for vegetarians are nuts & seeds, eggs & cheese. Beans are good too but you'll gain weight easier with the others due to their fats. I advise the eggs & cheese be organic to avoid their being from animals fed gmo corn & soy. Avocados are also a good food for weight gain and potatoes may help too. ...Read more
