completely possible. i have heard of people gaining much more.
but it could mean you have refeeding syndrome which can be quite dangerous. (effects electrolytes, causes fluid retention, can lead to heart attack etc) it is easily treated and managed if caught quickly though. you will need to monitered to be safe. eg: regular bloods, b/p, weights…
if you havent already, make sure you get in contact with your doctor ASAP.

if you are in recovery for an eating disorder then yes, it matters. if you are doing this every day, then yes. it matters. if you aren’t doing this becuase you are being ‘flexible’ and some days you eat more, and some days you eat less, then yes, it matters.
you need to stick to your plan love. and realistlically, you can’t be on 2400 forever, you will need to increase at some point to recover. so meet your set minimum now. we get caught up in having to be under a certain amount instead of around or above a certain amount. aim to be around it. sometimes more, or sometimes less, sometimes spot on. or aim to always be atleast on it if not above.
don’t let your ED suck you into restriction.
it is true. our wars physio did a talk on this. you only lay down essential fat and even that isnt until you reach a healthy bmi. mist of the weight you gain is organ repair (brain being an important one too!) and muscle. they speak the truth!!
honestly i couldn’t tell you. everyone is different frames and hights so… but since 6kg hasnt been that noticeable then probably not. i mean yeah, people will always look at least a little different when they gain…but isn’t it more important to have your life and the capability to live it than have your body stay the same?
some people when they first gain weight gain it in the abdominal to protect their organs. usually the weight will redistribute to the rest of their body once they a) gain more weight or b) their body realises it is getting regular nutrition and realises it is safe.
i done know why it is exactly but remember that people may lie to you about if they have gained or not. and some people dont show change at first but then start to change at higher weights. everyone is different. xxx
i am so sorry you are in so much torment right now. even if you are not underweight, your health is still at risk. your blood levels will be off and you will be at high risk of a heart attack.
i think you need to go to your doctor and tell them how you feel. even if things are ok physically they should give you support for your mental health.
be persistant. if they dont listen or take action, go back. try a different doctor, write to your MP, try an advocate. try some self help stuff online or DBT and CBT in the meantime. keep yourself as distracted as possible and try and give your day structure.
i will be praying fotr you love xxxx
yup. if it says ‘per 100g uncooked pasta’ and you cook it and it weighs more it’s the same xxx
if you have maintained it is probably best to increase. again, i cannot predict what your weight will do but i imagine you will maintain/gain a bit. good luck ♡
