I like to think of myself as a relatively educated and sane person, but I really do not understand what is going on with my body.
I have gone from going to the gym 1-2 times per week, to going to the gym 4 to 5 times per week. My eating habits have not changed, but I am gaining weight!!
It is causing me a lot of anxiety, and I really do not understand HOW it is happening, as it surely takes extra calories to build muscle, so why then am I still gaining?
Can anyone please help me make this make sense?
Also, I do rationally know that muscle weighs more than fat..BUT it scares the shit out of me...
I wonder if muscle mass vs. fat mass is even considered in assessment of eating disordered patients.
In all that I have seen in hospital, it is not. It is a matter of getting on the scale, and going from that number. It doesn't seem fair.
