This weekend i was staying at my boyfriends. We didnt eat much, and i lost 3 pounds. How long will it take for my body to regain its energy. I still feel sick and tired and its been about 4 days now, ive been trying to eat as much as possible, but then start feeling sick.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! Unless you are quite thin, a three pound weight loss should not cause an energy loss. We actually gain and lose as much as five pounds throughout our days, especially around our pre-menstrual and menstrual cycles.

It sounds like you're coming down with some sort of flu or other virus. If you don't feel better in the next few days, contact your doctor.
