    For some reason I have completely lost my appetite. Since Tuesday I have had about 3 meals and they have not been meals of substantial size.

    And I just dont feel any hunger whatsoever! This is worrying as I may not be a beast, but I am a gal who enjoys her food.

    What could the explanantions be?

    One personal diagnosis is that I have acknowledged that I need to lose weight and therefore my brain is doing this to me sub-consciously.
    Before this, i.e 3-4 weeks prior to this, I was eating really healthily and doing exercise with not even a pound lost.

    And now I only eat becuse I feel like I HAVE to, not because I feel the need to supress any hunger, as there isn't any!

    No nasty comments please, I have genuine concern for myself here and it is not an attetion thing. I just have NO appetite!

    lol I thought the same.

    OP, just leave it a bit longer if nothing else is 'wrong' with you, it might just be a phase, I have them often.

    Omg! Ive had something so similar to this recently!
    Im average size but I normally eat loadsssss. Recently, Ive been able to go with just 1 or 2 small meals a day (no snacks/chocolate which I used to eat all the time aswell) it's so weird! I'm away in Saudi for the holidays though and it's absolutely boiling which means we sleep in the day and are awake at night so I was thinking it could be something to do with that/the heat!

    Peoples appetites go up and down, well i know mine does some days i will go without eating, i think it is a common thing.

    However if there is no marked change by a week i would consider a trip the the doctor to see if there is anything wrong.
