Patient : How can I prevent unintentional weight loss?
I lost weight rapidly-went from 123 lbs to 105 lbs in about 5-6 weeks. I'm 5' 6''. (Bod Pod test said 15.9% body fat) I lost my appetite during 6 weeks of hotel living, moving from CA to CO to TX, and working at two jobs during that time. One year later, I lost another 5 lbs in a week due to a severe cold and constant coughing. As a result, I've lost my appetite again. I'm 5' 6'' 100 pounds, small boned. Please help me stop the weight loss. I feel more tired and cold than usual and my rib bones are more pronounced, but other than that appear to not have any other negative side effects.
