I love avocado. Once the weather gets warm and we have access to ripe avocados in my area, I am making fresh guac 2-3 times per week at a minimum. I might have a problem.

You seem really concerned about this “underweight” thing, but unless it is extreme, is interfering with your normal activity, or there is a vitamin deficiency or something on your physical or lab work that concerns your doctor, I really don’t think it’s something to worry so obsessively about. I’m technically “underweight” and have been so my entire life – it’s just how I’m built. But I’m healthy, and my physicals and lab work show it.

Question, though – where do you find your vegan pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and cheese pizzas?

alpinebride: So why not just “cheat” and eat a bunch of triple-meat pizzas? I guarantee your weight problem will be solved.

My point is that if you enjoy something like a cheese pizza with three kinds of pork on it enough to cheat on your “healthy vegan lifestyle,” then eating some junk food to pack on a few pounds really shouldn’t be that difficult. Obviously there is a difference between healthy fat and just fat, but any doctor with a patient who is underweight to the point of fatigue or lethargy would recommend just getting as many calories as possible, regarless of the source, as long as they are protein-rich (which pork and cheese are). Maybe I’m just not understanding what you’re struggling with here? Best of luck to you, regardless.

applecat:  I’m son is under weight and considered failure to thrive and I’m not as extremely under weight. All of his doctors are completely against just filling up on junk food to get fat. Also as a fellow vegetarian it’s not something that you cheat on. I’m not trying to attack you, I just don’t understand why when women on this site want to lose weight everyone is super supportive on her goal, but when someone wants to gain none of that compassion is there. I domt tell overweight people to just eat a salad, it’s not that hard

Allyg:  I think people may just be having trouble understanding why a medical student would either not  know the answer to her own questions or meet with someone who does.

Allyg:  Yeah, believe it or not, I am a vegetarian and I don’t “cheat” either. I was only wondering why, if the OP was indeed a “vegan,” she would have commented only a week ago about her love for cheese, bacon, sausage, and pepperoni.

julies1949:  applecat:  that is all very true than, I didn’t remember her past post and just had a heated conversation with my family about general food choices so some of my zest came off at you. Sorry! No rudeness meant by it
