Is there anyone who, like me, can never eat all the calories or weight watcher points?

I have been heavy ever since I was little. The doctors always said I was healthy, just strong. I do not have diabetes or a thyroid issue. So here is my problem. I am I never hungry fat person. I have never been a snacker or obsessive eater. I remember in middle school, I saw a dietitian and she told me to eat more. I tried but I couldn't, like my stomach wouldn't allow it. I tried Weight Watchers in 2007 and could never eat my points nor did I see any weight loss. Last year I went on Jenny Craig. My consultant thought I was lying but I literally had to set alarms on my cell just so that I remembered to eat my snacks. I'm just a non hungry fat person lol. Can anyone relate? Anyone have advice?

Well the first I would go back to the doctor if it has been over a year and get blood work done. Also what do you eat, for example, you can have a cheesesteak and that could be upward of 600 calories, if you eat a piece of pie and maybe 2 sodas that day you could easily be over 2000 calories. I eat really healthy, but I love wine and beer cutting these out/moderation I am really losing the pounds. I feel for you though studies show women that are never hungry and still can't lose wait have a higher risk for eating disordes.

I eat pretty healthy myself. I rarely drink soda but I am a sucker for cheese and chocolate. Then again, I don't over indulge and only have my allowed intake according to weight watchers. I'm planning on making a appointment with my dietitian.

Thank you =)

When is the last time you saw her? I never knew you saw one. Do you still see her regularly?

No I don't see her anymore. I saw her in 9th Grade. They assumed I was lying about what I was eating and the only way to fix my problem was to force me to eat more. I couldn't stomach it.

I am wondering if you have had your insulin levels checked? My daughter is insulin resistant and her metabolism is very sluggish. She could eat a carrot a day and and still would not loose a pound. For her it is more about movement than food.

I know EXACTLY what you mean...

I am rarely hungry and find it really difficult to eat healthy and eat above 1200-1400 calories a day. I just can't fit it in.. I can easily go 2-3 days without food at all and feel fine, i literally forget to eat, my body doesn't tell me i'm hungry very often but i think this is more of a bad thing than a good thing.

I struggle to find ENOUGH healthy food to fit into my body..before i feel physcially ill from too much food.
I could always eat more high calorie bad foods but that wouldn't help me either.

You are not alone...and i wish i had a resolution for you, although i've found i do lose the weight on the weeks when i manage to eat more small meals more often but i find its very difficult to maintain.

Good Luck!

Thank you =) I'm going to try to eat small meals more often throughout the day. I read that people like me must eat fruits and veggies all day to keep the furnace going. I'm going to give that a try.

I also recently discovered a love of yoghurt that i never knew i had!

Although you should watch the sugar content i've found the little tubs are quick and easy and don't overload me like other foods can.. plus they taste yummy!
