I'm also trying to recover. Last few weeks having a little bit of a set back, but I will be back on track soon

I've just had a look at your profile, your current bmi is 17.1 and your target weight gives a BMI of 16. This is not healthy. I would suggest that you go speak to a doctor or dietician about your issues.

This website will help provide support for you to eat healthily but shouldn’t be used as a place to justify bad eating habits.

Just my opinion.

I agree that your target BMI is too low. eating heathly foods is great but if you don't eat enough you will still have a problem - your metabolism will shut down and hoard it's fat (starvation mode) and then your body will start "eating" muscle and bone while preserving fat. I can't imagine that is your goal. if you want to maintain a healthy weight but have a lean "sclupted" look - then start weight training ... weight training + ENOUGH good food = much lower fat and nice toned muscles. shoot for at least 12 calories per lb and each meal needs to contain protein and a good carb.
