exercise and portion control…there’s not too much else you need!

Get stable first! It’s common to put on weight early so that is hard if your in hospital but it’s about discipline.

Protien isn’t bad…watch the carbs if your sedenatary!

I used to be real active then I became anorexic and I’m scared it will happen again if I diet and exercise.

Don’t crash diet. Eat balanced meals

Keep energy up. Don’t starve. Protein is good will keep you feeling filled but you need a balance to be healthy. Eat lots of fruit and veg and take portion controlled bits of protein.

I’ve lost weight, mostly because I can’t afford to comfort eat.
I sometimes eat chips and dip, though.


I comfort eat when i hear voices too :cry:

It’s hard to lose weight when your on a antipsychotic. I eat very small and healthy meals (only about 1300 kcalories a day) and I managed to lose only 5 lbs during summer but during my vacation I gained 3 lbs in only 10 days just because I ate a little more than usual because I went to restaurants many time to eat seafoods.

You can gain weight A LOT faster than you lose weight.

Even if I have a healthy weight I want to lose some more weight.

I used to binge on food to make me feel better. It led to me becoming like 250 pounds at age 14.
