I am looking for some suggestions of diets to use that might work for me. A little about me:
I am a 21 year old female who has always struggled with weight. This struggle has become increasingly more difficult after recovering from anorexia which completely screwed up my metabolism.
I exercise a lot and try not to diet in an attempt to not relapse into an eating disorder, but the exercise doesn't do anything for me. I typically run (sprint level, usually) for one hour a day at least six days a week.
I have tried a couple of diet plans. I lost weight for about two weeks on Weight Watchers before the weight loss stopped. I was told that I was exercising too much and to cut it down to half an hour of moderate exercise a day instead of an hour of intense exercise. I cut down on my exercise and began gaining weight while following the program.
I tried the Fat Smash diet with no results except for making me entirely crabby during the detox period.
I tried Atkins and ended up with bruised kidneys after two weeks from being in a keto state, at which point my doctor informed me that Atkins is really not suited for women at all.
Does anyone have any suggestions of diet plans that they have heard of or that have worked for them? I'm currently 5'7 and 175 pounds and really getting desperate to lose about 50 pounds. Thanks for any help!
