Lately I am having to make myself eat. I don't want anything. My appetite is low. Nothing tastes good, nothing sounds good. Am I nuts? Do you ever get like this?

I go through times like that....
Those are the times when I hear it from my mom.
She tells me...You have to eat......She wants me to eat when ever I am around her! (Like I don`t know how to eat when I am hungry) Sometimes she drives me nuts wth it!

I get like this a lot. I dont know what it is, but I just cant eat like a normal person would. When I eat my stomache get's sick, but I have to force myself to eat. Usually I eat one meal a day and that is all I need to keep me going and my DH says that's where my problem is. Probably that I have shrunk my stomache to the point where I just cant eat anymore then I am use to. I know I am not anorexic, because I dont do this to loose weight, I am perfectly happy with where I am at right now, I think my husband is right about the whole stomache thing. Maybe if you try when you get like that to eat a few small things everyday to keep your stomache from shrinking. Does it happen in phases for you. For instance I get like this probably 3 weeks out of the month and then for one week (Aunt flow visits, lol), I can eat a little more than usual. I guess I have no advice, because I am in the same boat as you are. And here I thought I was the only person alive who didnt like to eat, lol. Good luck!!

Ha! I eat like a horse!! I think it's because of breastfeeding though. I read earlier today that fenugreek is good for increasing appetite--worth a try for you?

Some meds cause appetite issues--i have friends on antidepressants with that problem.

What is fenugreek? Lately I dont have any problems with my appetite which is unusual so I dont expect it to last long. I'm trying to eat more to keep at my weight which seems pretty hard to do lately.

Fenugreek is a seed often found in Indian and other Mid-east/Asian foods. You can find it at most health food stores. It is also used to help increase breastmilk supply. I saw some fenugreek tea at a natural foods store recently. You can also buy the whole seed or capsules. I often put a handful of seeds in my tea, but I'm not sure that it does much other than add flavor.
