Ive done that a few times, but I make sure that I always eat. I had an ED a while back, and if I go long without eating, I wont eat at all for days, so I make sure I always eat.

i hardly ever 'feel' like eating, but i do it anyway because my body needs the energy and nutrients.<br><br>
i wouldn't worry too much about whether you feel like eating, you know you still need to eat. try and make sure you are having enough - i.e more than you have had the last few days.<br><br><br><br>
hope your appetite comes back soon<br><br>
maybe you should try and make your favourite dinner or something?

this occasionally happens to me to. i have taught myself to eat anyway, because i know my body still needs nutrients. everything_is made a good suggestion: just eat your favorite foods that day. chances are, you'll forget about the fact that you're not hungry and focus on the yummy smell of your favorite food cooking!

I went through that a few days ago! My mom noticed, and made me drink this vile veg*n protein drink. *shudder* I did gain my appetite back after that. Hmm. :p<br><br><br><br>
You should try making some food that you really, really love. Maybe it'll induce your appetite back. At least try to make yourself eat decently, but not so bad that it'll make you physically sick! Just so you keep up your good health.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck with it!

That happens to me occasionally. I'll go for about a day or so without eating any real food then that night my stomach will hurt like all get out until i eat something. I've heard that lack of appetite is a sign of anemia, but I'm not really sure..

I used to go through that in my early teens. Just make sure you still eat. Sometimes when I wasn't hungry I would get into the habit of forgetting to eat, and often this continued even when I WAS hungry, just because I was used to it.
