It is "some" not "sum". Your diet resembles my 4 year old nephews diet. By guesstimation I would say you are taking in about 1900 calories a day. try at the very least doubling but closer to tripling that intake if you want to put on another 23 pounds.


Too little. Are you starving yourself?

Thats way too little food even for a girl (Im being serious). Eat more.
