But since you struggle so much with feeling full, this may be the perfect solution for you. I may be hard to go straight to a burger at once, but try to challenge yourself with your fear foods and I promise you that you will feel better Smile

Today is terrible and gross, feel like a gaz bottle.
since last night I have terrible gaz...painful and could sleep....

What have I eaten yesterday: a simple soy sausage, but stomach says NO !

I usually never eat or rarely eat soy products because of theses side effects...but the sausage was there looking at me and wanted to give it a try.
Never mind, I still tried...but will not do it again

Not hungry at all, but will have my mid-day snack of dried fruits...something easy to eat and energy dense

Have you tried dark chocolate (since you don't do dairy), almonds and peanut butter? Those are the most energy dense foods I know. Btw, lactose intolerance can be caused by starvation as the body can't afford to produce lactase (the enzyme you need to digest it). In other words, you may be able to eat dairy again when your body has healed. Smile

Almond, peanut butter: Yes, I chop nuts that I sprinkle over the veggies and un PB as some would use ketchup or mustard...or instead of butter on toasts

chocolate is definitively NO...never liked it since childhood....do not know why same for ice cream (too cold)

Ha yes...had cheese last night and with todays' lunch also.
Yes I think I will put dairy aside for a while before doing an other attempt

Hard cheeses has almost no lactose (because of the aging - bacteria eat the lactose over time). Fresh cheese is worse.

thanks I will keep this in mind when I want to test cheese....especially that in France we have lots of variety of cheese.

Think that my issues yesterday has several origins....: soy intoxication and more over I am very anxious.

I haven't mentioned it but I am about to by an apartment. My own first apartment and it is so frightening.
Notary, bank, movers, furniture, electricity, gaz, internet....alone.....it gives me stomach aches and sometime I am so anxious I just want to vomit.

It is new life, a new start and very frightening.

I know it can be quite challenging when your life is stressful. But a new situation may also be a good thing as it can be nice to have something else to focus on besides food and how scary everything is Smile

indeed, I will take this opportunity that as I will have my own apartment and no more a rental, to transform it in my "nest".
I want to leave behind all what has been negative in my life and start a new one, free of...everything.
By leaving the rental I want to lease anorexia there and not allow her to enter my new home.

This is a great challenge for me and I am trying hard to do so.
Refeeding is not wonderful everyday and some days I struggle so much that I am about to give up.

did what you told me and went for a mature hard cheese, milk goat type as I read somewhere that goat milk was easier to digest.
Can feel the difference: tongue does not scratches until bleed, digestion is a bit less laborious....not 100% ok but better.

thanks for your tips ! And for all those you gave and continue giving me little tips as very much appreciated !

Honestly, I can not handle the last snack of the day, the one I have before going to bed.
It makes me sick the whole night and it occurred one more time last night.
I had a awful sleepless night, turning and turning over in my bed to find a position that would relieve the pain (Took pill the relieve stomach pain)

I definitively have to stop having the last snack...it is whether vomit or painful and restless nights.

the more time goes the harder it becomes to eat and continue eating. It is as if I need the reduce and rest a while and restart.

also at the end of the week I will have to got to the restaurant of a family meal and I am already stressing as it will be a full menu in a restaurant famous for its generous portions (even family find it particularly generous) stress to cope with comments and constant scrutiny of the family on my plates
