    Exclamation Nutrient Deficiency

    I'm male, 19, 185 lbs and I can't get my macros or micronutrients in.
    I always had a good appetite, until a few years or months ago.

    I just can't eat enough, have no feeling of hunger and can only eat a decent amount of carbs.
    After counting my macros and my iodine intake, I realized I had to force feed myself to get over 2000 kcals and got like 40% of the RDA for iodine in, even though I salted my food a lot.
    As a weightlifter, my requirements are even higher than that.

    I've had some weird symptoms in the last few years to months, and might see a doctor soon. Does anyone have ideas or experiences concerning this? I can't force feed myself constantly while taking dozens of minerals and vitamins, that would suck.

    Maybe look into eating more calorie-dense foods.

    Try adding protein shakes/mass gainer if you're really struggling.

    What is your height and estimated body fat percentage? How has your weight changed over the last month? What are your weird symptoms?

    You can take a multivitamin/mineral supplement, very unlikely you need individual vitamins/minerals.
