    I'm the same at the moment, luckily I'm not a stick so a little bit of weight loss can be good :D

    I know why I've lost my appetite; it's because I've been drinking a lot recently (see related thread lol) and my stomach's fucked. Has anything changed in your life? Are you stressed/depressed? How long has it been going on for?

    if you eat more then your stomach stretches and so you keep needing to eat more to get full up.

    Firstly i have been in the same situation as you. Ive always been slim and anyway for some reason some time ago I just did not want to eat or if I did i was just nibbling.
    What Id suggest you do firstly is make an appointment to see your G.P, they will take blood tests from you to check that you have not got an underlying problem. Your loss of appetite could be from something medical not psychologocal.
    I had blood tests and they could find nothing wrong. So I had to basicaly make myself eat, even if it was just small amounts often. Id got out of the habit of eating so used to drink tea or coffee and eat hardly anything. So id make sure id have half a slice of toast on a morning and if I could face something else id have that. I used to try small amounts often because if you have not been eating and someone hands you a plate full of food chances are your gonna turn your nose up at it, so as i say make sure its smaller amounts and gradually build the size up.
    Gradually your appetite should return but you have got to keep trying to eat, even if its only a biscuit, half a banana or whatever, basially i used to just eat whatever I fancied that meant at least i was eating something. Hopefully your appetite will return. Try drinking milk if you like milk as that will keep building you back up.

    But deffinately go see your doctor and just tell him how you have been feeling and let him check you out :)

    she will be worried you know. If she's nagging you its only cos she's worried so yeah just to shut her up go and see the doc ;)

    Thats the best thing just eat what you fancy. Some people will disagree with that but if I didnt eat what I fancied then I would have eaten nothing so which is better ?
