sounds like you are eating far too few calories for your body size as well as your activity level. You didn’t mention your height but your weight sounds pretty average. By eating too few calories you can actually cause your body to go into preservation mode and burn Fewer calories than if you are getting a higher number of calories – plus it can cause you to burn your muscle rather than actually burn your fat which will leave you worse off in the long run by lowering your metabolism even further. Probably no less than 1200 calories/day is a good guideline.

Honestly, from your description, I would worry about your behavior verging on anorexia. There are lots of websites out there that offer a lot of really great healthy weightloss information. Just do a search and you’ll find a ton of tips.

    A study has shown that a virus can actually cause obesity, the Adenovirus Ad-36.

    The good news is that not everyone who carries the virus will become fat or obese. Research indicates that there is a genetic component involved as well. In fact, the adenovirus most often manifests as a respiratory or eye infection, but in some individuals, a particular gene inside the virus causes stem cells (cells that can develop into any type of in the human body) to turn into fat cells.

    It’s a long shot but who knows, it might be the reason.
