Unintentional weight loss?
« on: July 05, 2014, 12:07:47 AM »
Hi guys! So this week I went to the gym and thought I'd weight myself since I haven't been to the gym in 3 months, to my surprise I'd lost 7 pounds! I've struggled with my anxiety and depression which has killed my eating habits meaning I'm eating around 1400-1800 cal a day. Could the anxiety mixed with my lack of appetite have caused this weight loss? I'm a 20 year old male 148 pounds and I walk for 30 minutes each day.

Has anyone experienced this with anxiety? It really shocked me and I'm not sure what to think!!

Yeah I have. Anxiety can cause weight loss/ weight gain. I weighed myself I was 2 or 3 kilo's lighter than what I was ( this was when the anxiety really started to kick in). Now I weigh 4 kilo's heavier than my initial weight so in actual fact I have put around 8 pounds on. I spoke to my doctor about this and asked if it could be cancer he said usually that you either keep losing or you won't be able to put it back on. So I stopped stressing.  :P

It really depends on what you ate (or pooped) before getting weighed.

Example, my breakfast is usually a protein shake with psyllum with 20 oz of water, plus a bowl of oatmeal with fruit and a couple cups of coffee.  If I get weighed before I eat, its about 3-4 pounds less than getting weighed after eating.

Best to weigh yourself at the same time every day so you get a consistent measurement.
