I don't know whats happened, but my appetite has absolutely slumped in the last 2 weeks.

I had a sore throat for a few days, and it did make it difficult to swallow hard food, but I still ate soft scrambled eggs etc until it cleared. Suddenly my appetite totally disappeared.

Don't worry, I'm not some skinny girl, I'm definitely got some curves I could do with losing, but I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat at meal times.

Currently I'm consuming abut 500 calories a day, most being from my breakfast cereal (forced) and I'll have no lunch, then just the vegetables off my plate at dinner.

I've not been very active recently, but I still can't understand why I'm not hungry at all. I'm pretty sure 500 calories is far too little, even if I was inactive all the time?

I normally crave one food, something will take my fancy, but nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I'm not quite sure if this is a question, or a discussion. Has anyone been through this? Any ideas what it could be? Any ideas on what I can do to get my appetite back.

Just some basic info: I have a good relationship with food, I'm not a fussy eater, I have suffered with 3 bouts of depression over the last 2 years (but not currently feeling low, or have any other symptoms)

It's alright for some...


But seriously, that's way too little. Eat foods you normally crave?

Same here, I used to eat at satisfactory level (having breakfast, lunch and dinner) but now I barely have proper meal, it's usually no breakfast and then for dinner a sandwich or something like 1 pancake Sometimes, even 1 sandwich a day and am not hungry at all.

Same issue here, one meal a day and I'm pretty much done (and by meal I mean a sandwich or just whatever's at the front of the fridge)

It's dangerous to eat less than 1200 calories per day because your body can't cope with so little energy. If you still have no appetite after a few days, then I'd recommend that you see your doctor, as it could be that something is causing your sudden loss of appetite.

You'll end up permanently destroying your metabolism and put on weight at a much lower maintenance. Just force it or split your meals, you need to up your calorie consumption

The heat may well be hindering your appetite somewhat, but I wouldn't have thought that it would account for it going altogether. As others have said, you need to eat more, and you should go to your GP if it continues. Are you keeping your fluid intake up? I'd suggest drinking drinks with lots of calories (eg. milkshake, juice, soft drinks) rather than just water, as that should boost your calorie intake if nothing else.

I am the same at the moment since the 26th of May after losing my babies I've not been eating one single piece of food and I have lost quite a lot of weight since all I've been drinking is lucozade but in a last few days I've been forcing myself to eat because I've been going really poorly with it ... Even when I go to the GP the not taking it serious how much weight have actually lost I've got to go and see a dietitian to give me liquid food so I can hopefully start eating
