  • This article is a great idea, and actually, a real comfort for those of us trying to put on, but as healthily as possible.

    Heavily reliant on dairy though, which I can't eat and is part of the reason I have this problem!!! - 4/12/2015 12:40:32 PM

    WOW, this article is 7 years old, and still applies. I doubt anyone will read this comment.
    My weight has been always under normal and never changed five pounds in 45 years. There was three years when I really should have had more calories for nutrition, but I had to limit my food cost to one dollar per meal, so that would not be available either. But more important is if even I just eat less, I use only nutritious organic food.

    Do I take advice of a doctor? Rarely! I do go there for information, but find alternative solutions most doctors never learn or are not permitted to tell me. If I believed doctors I would have been already dead four times. The last was prostate cancer I refused surgery and radiation. Instead I take graviola and turmeric. Symptoms I had more than a year were gone in three weeks. But with a lot of three time experiments I also know if I eat half as much sugar as most Americans do, or any dairy products, the herbs would fail. The the doctor would be correct; I would have died before then end of last year. - 1/25/2015 3:27:17 PM

    I am trying to eat "normal" food which is eating anything except chocolate, chips, or things like that. I'm eating only a fun size chocolate each day and I ate 969 calories on the first day. Without eating all the junk, I usually do I do not eat enough calories. - 12/19/2014 8:15:16 PM

  • Thank you so much for the information! I am having such a hard time eating over 2500 calories a day! Sounds funny, as the old me would have no problem! LOL Thanks to SP I am down 32.4 pounds!!! :) - 10/28/2014 10:17:55 AM
  • I eat as much as I can but when I finish my tracking for the day, still says I do not eat enough, I be full, and can not eat anymore, what do I do? If I eat anything after like 8 pm. I am sick, so that is always my cutoff for the night. What do I do, I eat all day. - 9/30/2014 8:48:58 PM
  • I am "fat" but I hardly ever meet my minimum calorie goals. This seems unbelievable to people. It's difficult for me to even get 1,500, and people are like.. "But.. you're big"

    I think these tips are great, and I am going to try them out! - 2/28/2014 10:38:13 PM
  • I too have had the same problem.....one of the main things I do is to add things to my everyday items that I eat. Take a tossed salad for instance, I will add a hard boiled egg, or a can of drained/rinsed black beans. That way you are adding calories and healthy protein. - 1/13/2014 3:34:50 PM
  • I find all these comments by people claiming to eat less than 1000 calories daily interesting. I have worked with many people claiming such low calorie counts, but when under supervision and with someone else counting, it is clear that some serious underestimating is going on. Calories burned, on the other hand, are normally overestimated. Yes, some people have slowed their metabolisms down, but it is still important to work with the correct numbers! - 10/6/2013 11:35:54 AM

    I never ate much before, now it seems like that's all I do. It makes since but it is very hard - 9/18/2013 7:26:56 PM

    This article kinda makes me angry. I only WISH that I could lose my appetite when depressed! If I was one of those people, I would look like half of an Olesen Twin! But no, I'm like an alcoholic that has fallen off the wagon. I will cram every morsel of food I can find into my face, even if I don't like it very much. I've been like this ever since I can remember. It's hideous. - 9/15/2013 3:48:10 PM
  • Good article for those of us who are trying to maintain. I know I need to add calories now that I'm below my goal weight but my mind says NO! - 5/15/2013 9:29:28 PM
  • Eat more tips makes no sense to me while trying to lose weight--can someone please explain how adding dairy or snacks to daily nutrition can help me lose weight.... - 3/8/2013 4:33:15 PM
  • This article is just what I've been looking for. I too struggle to get more than 900 calories, and if you try telling anybody that someone of my size is undernourished they laugh at you! But it isn't funny. My weight has been stuck for months. I've been told that eating more is really a dream diet, but it just isn't that easy to eat more when you're already full!! Thank you so much for your advice. It's a great help! - 2/6/2013 10:18:23 AM
  • This is exactly what I needed today. I've been struggling to even get to 1000 calories a day! - 1/13/2013 10:30:58 PM
