its not a huge worry for me but lately ive not ever been hungry though im eating less than normal and i seem to just forget meals sometimes. I usualy dont eat breakfast or lunch instead i have a brunch bar or something in the afternoon. It only happens in the holidays because at my intermediet school we are served lunch. Im also loosing wieght, but not much. Nothing has gone wrong in my life, infact things are better than they have been for a while so i cant see the reason why im dong it. Should i be worried?
That being said, you shouldn't only eat when you're hungry. For example, dehydration is a very serious problem , especially in areas with hot/dry climate. However, many people who are experiencing dehydration do not feel the urge to drink water. That is completely normal, and is nothing to worry about IF--stress on the conditional--the person is proactive in drinking water even when he/she is not thirsty. The best way to do this is to keep a bottle of water around and take small sips throughout the day.
Sorry for the drawn out reply. The point is that "not feeling hungry" in and of itself isn't much to worry about. It also depends on how active you are. I tend to get more of an appetite if I'm active, and less hungry during the summer when I'm being lazy and sluggish.
The human body can survive on surprisingly little food. This is no reason, however, to deprive yourself. Eat small meals throughout the day, even if you are not hungry. You might not notice it now, but not eating as much as you should will lead to fatigue later on. Also important: get your H2O.
As a side note, I should mention that one would have cause to worry if this were to develop into anorexia or some other sort of eating disorder. Judging from context, though, this probably is not the case.
I am most certainly not annorexic as I could easily sit down with an entire box of ritz crackers and eat them all, or a large portion of chips, a sausage roll, or a lump of french bread with thickly spread best butter. I have a real problem though in eating a full cooked meal. I dread eating it regardless of who cooks it. Each time it gets to early evening I just wish that a meal is not mentioned. It just turns me off eating at all. If I had my way, I would never eat a full cooked meal at all.
Does anyone else feel this way?
