It sounds like it might be water weight. A few days before my period, I gain a pound or two that magically disappears after I start bleeding. The increase in your measurements could indicate bloating, too. I’d give it a week and see what happens. It’s pretty hard to gain four actual permanent pounds in one week, so that’s probably not what’s going on.

What does your 1200-1400 calories consist of? If I eat certain foods, even if my calorie count is the same, I start becoming majorly pudgy, so maybe it’s kinda like that?

@Rachel631:  Have you tried cutting out wheat and gluten entirely? I know for some people with stomach issues that works incredibly well. I think my primary sources for calories are probably animal and vegetable fat. But I mostly don’t touch anything with starch, wheat, (or sugar for the most part) and I don’t count calories, and I’ve never felt better in my life. I’ve never been overweight but I used to feel uncomfortable at my regular weight and now a few pounds loss later I feel super! If you want more info you can PM me. Good luck!

Have you been tested for insulin resistance, estrogen dominance, PCOS, ovarian cysts, etc? Also, 1200 calories is not enough. Your body is likely going into starvation mode. Also, maybe get your thyroid checked.

@nycsa:  I realize you don’t have periods but can you still have these symptoms?

isn’t it possible you’re under-estimating your caloric intake? don’t worry about starvation mode, you’d have to actually be WELL underweight to get there.
