    Three Square Maybes A Day...

    I don't eat unless I'm hungry.An obvious statement to some. I have lost friends to obesity complications and so I snack and make dinner the big meal (the opposite to what is recommended). My poor friends were so sad, they ate their pain away.I don't think I am eating incorrectly...

    I Need To Eat

    I hardly get hungry. I never used to be like this. I handle stress good and I may seem and feel like I have energy. But I have this feeling that if I don't start eating now and get my appetite back, I will end up being sick or damage my health permanently.

    I Just Don't Feel Hungry

    Its not like I'm starving myself. I just don't eat when I'm not hungry. And I don't feel hungry a lot. And so, I've lost a lot of weight. I'm not really trying to stop eating, or keep losing weight. It just happens. Now my family is starting to get worried, they think I'm on a...

    this is bad. Maybe one of the reasons

    why I'm not gaining. sometimes I go a whole day without eating. especially when I'm depressed or upset at something or someone. when I take my meds I get nauseas and then I can't eat for the whole day. what should I do?

    I Dunno

     I'm almost never hungry.  Or rather I just don't feel like eating.  It'll happen every two weeks or so, that I get extremely hungry and eat like a starving horse.  I mean whole large pizzas, tons of meat and fruits.  Then I won't get hungry again for a...

    I'm not always hungry.

    Even when I am hungry, I'll lie to my mum and say that I'm not so she can eat. She always eats a small amount of food.

    I don't have a sexual orientation. A lot of people who are closed minded have an issue with this. I don't feel like anyone can wrap their mind around it.
