How to deal with unintentional weight loss?

If you’re losing weight without trying, it means you’re either very active and your food intake doesn’t match your daily activity level or you’re just not eating enough. If you have a hard time eating meals, resort to calorie dense shakes/smoothies with nuts, fruits, yogurt, nut butters etc.

What and when should a person eat around workouts?

Ideally, if you’re doing cardio or high intensity training, you should eat at least an hour to 90 minutes before your workout and if you’re resistance training you can work out about 30 minutes or less after your meal. There’s really no perfect time. Some people feel uncomfortable working out after meals so they prefer fasted workouts and some people prefer working out after. It depends on what you’re comfortable with.

I’m not very hungry when I know it’s time to eat. Is that normal for someone in their early 20s?

Not feeling hungry when it’s time to eat is a common pattern found in children that have developed a negative association with food when they were younger. You can overcome this by slowly incorporating foods you like meal by meal into your routine and making your food fun for yourself. Watch a show or read the paper or have a chat with someone while eating so your mind isn’t entirely focused on your meal.

I have been on an all-fruit diet. Which fruits are fattening and should be avoided during my diet?

There are no foods that will help with weight loss or weight gain. Fat loss is all about calories whether they come from an apple or a pizza. Almost all fruits are pretty low calorie but they’re also entirely carb sources. Your diet should be balanced with all three macronutrients (protein, carbs, fats) and not just carbohydrates. But to answer your question bananas and pomegranates are highest in calories (85-90 calories per 100g) and melons are lowest in calories (30-35 calories in 100g).

What’s the absolute worst food that people eat?

There are no good or bad foods. Just foods you enjoy and foods you dislike. Ideally, your daily intake should contain 80% whole foods (grains, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, eggs, oils etc) and 20% treats (chocolates, candy, processed sugar etc).
