I asked about this before but the answers I got were mostly for bodybuilding I think? I am female and just need more calories as I am not eating enough at all. The evidence of this is for 2 months now I have had my period come later than usual. This month was really late, counting up to 40 days. What I did was take a suggestion that I saw here on another post and made a smoothie out of a whole can of coconut milk. I did this for 2 days and yesterday I got my period(last month I just ate another meal and my period came the next day). In order for me to atleast get 2100 calories, what would some meals look like. I only eat twice a day. I am willing to change how much times I eat as long as I get enough calories. My delayed period is a visible symptom but I wonder what else is happening with my body when I'm not getting adequate calories over the long-term. What are breakfast, lunch ,dinner ideas? Should I include snacks? I usually eat my first meal at 3-4pm and sometimes even later and then after that my last meal is usually 4-7 hours later. I know this sounds crazy but I will change this though. What are some things I can put in a coconut milk smoothie that will boost my caloric intake even more? As I said before I am not bodybuilding, I just need enough calories to maintain my weight [I like my weight where it is right now at 150(sometimes I can go down to 140 but my most stable weight is 150)- I am an extreme pear/bell shape,just to give you guys an idea my waist to hip ratio is 0.62 lol. My face and neck start looking emaciated if I lose a bit of weight unintentionally lol). I look forward to hearing some meal ideas.
Sneak fats into your food! Butter, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, nuts, etc. High calorie and satiating. Eat a sweet potato with your dinner, slather it with butter. Add a blob of coconut oil when you fry eggs in a pan. Smear some cashew or almond butter on some celery sticks or something!
Some days I have a hard time meeting my 1850kcal (I'm sedentary and thin). Then other days I exceed it by a few hundred. I don't really keep track, but I know when I ate/didnt' eat enough for that day and try to make up for it the next.
Seems like you need a consult from a nutritionist.
I don't have a meal plan to offer you but I wonder if you have you explored the reason(s) you are chronically under-eating.
Are you depressed perhaps?
I've been doing one meal a day for the past week and reach about 2000-2300 in that meal. I eat the following:
About a pound of meat, a potatoe with 3 tablespoons of butter, mixed cooked veggies about 1 cup, fermented veggies 1/2 cup, 2 pieces of dark chocolate, large glass of raw milk, and finish it with a coffee with 2 tablespoons cream and a teaspoon of honey. I'm cool with dairy :)
Don't know if this will help you in terms of what to eat, but just having to cook once a day is kinda cool. I like to IF and do NO snacks. I use to do 2 meals. I'm just trying something different for a few weeks. Hope seeing this gives you some idea of how much food adds up to that much calories though.
In a coconut milk smoothie, what about raw eggs or honey? Eggs aren't terribly caloric but they do have lots of good nutrients, and honey will get your calorie count up amazingly fast. Or nut butter.
As far as cooking, I like to make a big slow-cooker full of something, and then freeze it in individual Tupperwares. It's like having my own freezer dinners - whenever I'm too lazy to cook, I just haul out one of those.
