Ok, so maybe this will generate some discussion, maybe not, but I think I could do with some advice... I am a pretty decent club runner, since I began running I my weight hasn't varied that much... always been within about half a stone plus or minus a bit of where it is now... The problem is at the heavier end of that scale I was running well, now at the lower end of the scale I have no energy and lots of aches, pains, poor performance alround... I feel exhausted when I try to run... This is scaring me a bit... But I am struggling to manage any kind of weight gain, Yes I am underweight, and yes I want to be a strong muscular athlete, yes I do eat a lot (3 or 4 meals plus snacks a day) but also yes I did have very disordered eating when I was younger, yes I do comfort eat/binge if I am unhappy or stressed and yes I do feel very guilty about eating under those situations... At the moment all my attempts to eat more is turning into chocolate and cakes which upsets me and isn't really helping me improve my nutrition and gain sensible weight... I am thinking about food all the time and just really struggling to figure out why my exisiting diet isn't enough... How can I get my energy back and train hard? When I already have a full and healthy diet where do I add more (especially as I am not really training right now)? Should I feel bad about the chocolate and cakes - will these help or hinder?
