I started binging less than a year ago & even though Iâ€™m an inactive person I ate whatever & was fine but then I started gaining fat. Long story short I started dieting when that didnâ€™t work I starved myself. I did it a few times & starved myself for 2-3 days. Then I started to purge whenever I felt like I ate a lot.
Iâ€™m 5â€™0 104lbs last time I checked but I get criticized for my weight by my family & some friends. Stress & my weight problems led me to cut.
If youâ€™re going to tell me Im average weight, shouldnâ€™t worry about it, be healthy etc etc, donâ€™t. It wonâ€™t help me in any way.
What I want to know is, what is the lowest BMR level because Iâ€™m worried the harm I did to my body made my metabolism slow & even a 1,200 calories diet wouldnâ€™t work for me. My go to diet is not eating breakfast or lunch & only having dinner with minimal snacks. I donâ€™t stick to this for long though I always break it and my vicious cycle would start again. Iâ€™m not very active mostly & if I actually stuck to this diet would I be able to lose weight?
My dinner isnâ€™t exactly unhealthy, Iâ€™m vegetarian & itâ€™s just one meal. On weekends though I sleep in & have to eat 2 meals.
I just want confirmation that I can lose weight on my dieting ways so I could have motivation to stick to it & exercise whenever I can.
This was a mess of structure but I hope you get what Iâ€™m trying to say & have answers for me. I wrote a longer question but it wouldnâ€™t fit so this is a shorter less informed one.
