At what point in time would an anorexic regain her period? BMI at 18.2. Originally weight at 18.7. Is low carb, high fat and protein diet beneficial?

BMI 18: I can't answer your question about periods, but a BMI of 18 is normal (18-25) and a low carb, high fat, protein diet perfectly okay. You should be trying to match your caloric need to your calories consumed. For example, if you're 5 feet, 5 inches (165 cm), at 18, your estimated caloric need is roughly 1600 to 1800 calories a day. Aim for that. ...Read more

I've been gaining weight on a low carb (w veggies) high fat n protein diet (alot of nuts) but my periods r nt cmg bk? Lost it @ bmi of 18.8. Now 18.2.

Amenorrhea: Being underweight is known cause of amenorrhea or lack of menses. Normal body mass index is 18.5-24.9. If you "lost" your menses at BMI 18.8 and now have BMI 18.2, then you're losing weight, not gaining, assuming your height hasn't increased. You might have to gain even more weight before you start menstruating regularly again. This also assumes that you haven't engaged in unprotected sex. ...Read more

1 big apple has 25g carbs. I'm on a high protein low carb diet (exercising EVERY day).So is it bad to eat the apple then bec its 0.5 daily carb intake??

It's ok: Generally, it's fine to eat an apple. 25g of carbs is only about 100 calories, which is very little. If you drink the normal amount of room temperature water recommended for someone your age and size, you'll burn off at least 100 calories. 25g of carbs is probably not enough to stop the ketosis caused by high protein diets. ...Read more
