    I did eat a yoghurt since I felt weak, and figured it better to not pass out. If I can walk at least 40 minutes a day I won't feel as guilty for consuming 1000-1500 calories

    So I was telling my brother how if I'm running around I'll forget to eat until I'm about to pass out (or feel like I'm going to) and by that time I'm so close to home that it's like might aswell wait a little longer. so he suggested I take a protein shake and a piece of fruit with me figure out what would be a conveint time and set an alarm on my phone.

    Those are good suggestions! Nuts and raisins (and other dried fruit, like cranberries or bananas) work well, too. Add some pumpkin seeds for protein, if you can handle them. I wasn't crazy about them at first, but over time have come to like them.

    I was gonna have a salad for lunch, but I ended up going to panera and I rarely go and have a weakness for their soup.I wasn't going to eat the yogurt, but I figured I threw up earlier that I probably should, even though I didn't want to eat the yogurt. then i threw that up. so I don't know how many calories I've retained today.

    Have you talked to your healthcare team about these thoughts? They can help you develop a more healthy attitude towards food, and can also help with the throwing up problem. It's easy to forget that too little food is actually more unhealthy than too much.

    no and I had every intention of eating a salad when I got home but literally everyone is in the kitchen so it's futile. I've been going since 8:30 am and I've only consumed 291 cals, so I as soon as I can I'm putting an egg on to boil and making a huge salad. it's now 7pm.plus i feel judged when I make food or eat food in front of the people I live with.

    Perfect! You wouldn't guess it, but they are a GREAT source of vegetarian protein. I add them, as well as beans, to all my salads for a boost in protein.

    I made the salad, and looked at it went, nah I'll eat this later and put it in the fridge. So I plan on eating it before I go to bed, I just really don't feel like eating anything right now.
