Undereating. Need high calorie food /recipe ideas.

Commented on July 01, 2014

I do not do any diary, in an form...no butters or creams. I have coconut milk and oil, olive oil, fish, meat, tons of veggies, but I still am only getting 1500 calories a day, and I'm not hungry, I run 3 miles every other day, and I'm ALWAYS COLD, I've been usually colder than usual my whole life though. I only have a sweet potato mash high calorie recipe but I want more variety.

I don't do nuts or nut butters.

What about white potatoes? Do they spike blood sugar? I wanted to make hash mash with coconut oil! That would fill me up, but I really don't want ANY insulin spikes!

I agree, I've been running my whole life. I run 3 miles every other day...do light core and yoga. Nothing strenuous. My 3 miles in an 7:40 pace is easy

I disagree, it depends on the person and their fitness level, caloric/nutrient requirements and intake.

A 10 mile run every day may be nothing to a professional soccer player consuming a 5000 calorie nutrient dense diet, a 1 mile run may be way too much for an obese individual who is starving themselves. ( Exaggerating to make the point )

The best way to add carbs would be plantains fried in butter IMO.

True wtfgod but running 3 miles every other day isn't overexercising. If she were running half marathons every day it might be too much. But if she were doing that she'd be stuffing her face with food. When the food is gone the ghrelin kicks in making you feel starved.

Overexercise + calorie/carb restriction does not sound good for your thyroid.

Just the opposite wtfgod. Exercise increases thyroid function.

If someone is overexercising on a thyroid issue would that not exasperate it?

Running boosts the metabolism wtfgod. More than any food or supplement will.

Not sure, as mentioned you would probably want to consume something with iodine and b vitamins. Probably don't want to eat too few carbs either.

Source: I have no clue what I'm talking about.

I feel a lot better when I eat a lot of tuna, and I've been craving it!

I don't wanna stop running :( What can I eat to boost my metabolism? Can I naturally fix my thyroid?

In case you're consuming enough (and not fasting) then I don't think you ought to be feeling COLD. Track your day by day macronutrient admission. I think you are not consuming enough protein and fat. Protein supports in legitimate thermoregulation and keeps your body agreeably warm.

You sound obsessively restrictive about foods. Eat more. If nothing else eat bigger portions of what you eat now. Add oil and fat.

You're undereating, chronically, that's why you're cold. Maybe a thyroid issue, but undereating seems to be the primary problem.

Yup, iodine, selenium, and L-tyrosine, and possibly dessicated thyroid for the win - but only if you've ruled out Hashimotos first. Get checked for antibodies first before supplementing, or you'll wind up in even worse shape.

Not a professional, but that certainly sounds like a thyroid issue. If I was you I would lightenin up on the running for a bit and start considering supplementing things to boost your metabolism.

On a related note, when I supplemented with iodine I actually felt noticeably warmer immediately after consuming the supplement. ( Be careful with the supplements )

The obvious paleo answer would be to drench everything in oil or other forms of fat.

The obvious non-paleo answer would be to consume sugary/carby food, as people seem to think these cause people to over-eat. If you want you could even consume a sweetened beverage, these are known to not impact the fullness of an individual and just increase their caloric load. ( brush your teeth )
