Have you ever lost interest in food? I have this problem on a regular basis. I am haveing this problem right now. It's not that I've lost my appetite, I am hungry and I know that I am hungry but I can't think of anyhting that I feel like eating. I am sitting here going over all the foods in thehousein my head and none of them sound at all appetizing to me. It is very frustrateing when this happens because I know I need to eat, I just don't feel like it, and I know that if I don't eat soon I will start to feel sick, so I will hae to force myself to eat something I don't want. Does this ever happen to you? Do you have any idea why this happens? Do you think that this could be a symptom of depression?

I've never had this problem, I'm always hungry and I always know what I desire to eat. Anyway I think that actually there could be a psychologic problem behind . I think, you should begin asking yourself if in this period you're happy of your life or you could talk of this problem with a psychologist.

I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression but the medications I have tried for that did nothing but upset my already crappy stomach. I have considered trying to find someone just to talk to but there just isn't any time for that.

I'm experiencing this right now. I'm hungry but I don't feel like eating. Sometimes I get tired of eating but I love food. It's just such a chore sometimes to shop for food, cook it and eat I get tired of it.

Well at least I am not the only one. I hav decided to justhave a Slim Fast shake. I don't diet but I keep itin the hosue because it tastes good and it is a good meal replacement for times like these. I used to drink Carnation Instant Breakfast, but they stopped making the coffee flavor I like so I had to swtich to Slim Fast Cafe Mocha.

I don't know what's happening to you, maybe you are nervous. When you are stressed for everyday life you could have that problems. I suggest to go to a doctor, but I think it dipends from the stress.

I never lose interest in food, but I do get bored with certain foods. I don't want to eat meat daily, or chicken daily or pasta daily.
