need serious help, please

I am a 16 year old girl 5'1ish and 132 pounds! Just 6 months ago i was 105 pounds. I was on a raw diet which is only eating fruits, veggies and nuts. When my mom forced me to eat real food again I gained over 30 pounds. I lost a few pounds lately but it is SO hard now. What do you guys think I should do to lose some weight? And im talking about 30 pounds. I hate myself constantly now and I'm just not happy with what happened to me. Should I go back on this diet? Or what??

It sounds as if you and your Mom should both visit a nutritionist and let a professional establish a healthful diet that you both can live with.

Personally, I don't think a raw diet as you describe is very good for you. However, if "real food" is chips and cheese dip, that's not any better!

16 and going raw, and hating yourself sounds like you need to see a counsellor more than you need to lose weight.

Remember (you and Mom) that a serving of red meat is 3 oz.! Not much. Try for brown rice. And maybe chicken and fish? There's a lot of room for healthy eating between red meat and raw.

focus of nutrient dense foods. Some raw food is great, but you'll be much better off if you focus on these foods:

Also- you might want to meet your mom halfway- say you'll eat grass fed beef if she buys that. You shouldn't be forced to eat food, but you also want to not get too crazy about it either in terms of philosophy.

If you focus on the overall quality of your food, that is no different than anything else in your life- quality of clothes, car etc. Makes it much easier to get a handle on.
