Napster – actually, I was the kind of newbie who thought fat makes you fat. I ate a lot of carbs (fruits and vegetables – so lacking the leptin boosts) and a decent amount of protein, but very little fats. After a few months of eating like that, I realized I had developed secondary amenorrhea. Accidentally starved myself, yes, but I was mainly lacking fats. I was literally eating under 20g a day. I also didn’t eat many refined or processed carbs – wheat bread and cereal were my main processed foods. I was drinking skim milk, too, because it had less calories.
I didn’t do all of this to be intentionally unhealthy, no. In fact it’s the opposite – I thought I was being healthy.
