Edema/Water Retention

I am a 22year old female who recently stopped abusing laxatives cold turkey. I have gained significant amounts of weight since I stopped about 4 days ago, and although I am not eating any more than 15oo calories every day, I am still gaining weight. Will this ever stop? Or its this my real weight?

You are slightly underweight for your height so the weight gain is good. For your height, the ideal weight should be 105-110lbs. Suggest the following healthy eating to gain weight and maintain it: Eat low fat meats (chicken, fish, loin of pork) or non meat sources (soy products), low fat vegetarian combinations (rice & beans, pasta & beans, low fat cheese & pasta), fat free or low fat dairy products (skim milk, 1% milk, low fat cheese, low fat yogurts, low fat soy milk/yogurt), and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Eat daily high fiber breads and cereals (oatmeal). Hoped this helped you.
