    No Hunger Instinct

    I'm 38, married and a mother of 3. In the last 12-18 months my hunger sensations have moved from normal to non-existent for the most part. I get cravings for a particular dish or we'll see something on the food channels that we'd like for dinner so I make that for our family...

    People are always trying to get me to eat, but I just have no interest. I don't like eating, I don't like when people push food on me. I can go for days without food with out feeling any kind of affect and all I really need is some kind of juice. Eating is just...

    When I Was Taking Adderral

    When I was taking adderral I had no appetite .It was immensely liberating. It wasn't hard to eat in a really strict manner, not think about food, and really keep my weight down. I never really wanted to eat. Sometimes I wish I could have that feeling again.

    Can't Eat, But What's Wrong With Me?

    Let's get the facts out of the way: I love

    copious amounts of cigarettes and alcohol. Moving on... I can't tell people "Sorry, I just literally have no interest in food". They'd look at me as if 5 spikes just grew out of my head. But I'm so sick of the anorexic accusations. I dread social gatherings where I'm expected...

    Food Holds No Pleasure For Me

    For about the past 10 years, I have had no appetite at all.  I have to eat, obviously, but I never think, "Oh, some barbecued chicken would taste good!"  Eating is just another boring task that I have to perform, like doing laundry or dusting.  (Not that...

    I Have No Interest In Eating.

    For the past 2 years, I have been struggling with eating. I will just eat enough to sustain myself through the day and the rest of the time I could care less about food. My friends will offer to take me out for meals, and I just turn them down. The thought of food doesn't do...

    No Interest In Food, No Interest In Life

    I have never being overly keen on food.  An insane family who insisted on a) screaming at me during in meal times, and b) removing the plate from in front of me if I tried to answer, meant that I was pretty much underfeed as a kid.  Then when I finally got away from...
