Hello jugjugs..How are you?..Good I hope.. I have been feeling the same way the last few days. I have not been feeling the best and just didn't want to eat at all. I had to force myself to eat. I knew that I would not get feeling better if I didn't eat something during the day. You need to do the same, and make sure that you body gets the fuel that it needs thru food. I hope you are feeling better now. Have a nice day..

that really happens even to me. like one time i dont feel of eating and i only want to sleep the whole day. thats the time when i had problem at work or those time if i had problem with my boyfriend. i feel so depress that i can even take a bite. but then try to take some vitamins, it will help, even if you dont like to eat, your stomach will order you to move and do something.

Yes I would still eat. I probably would eat smaller amount more time a day.

If I'm not hungry I will either drink a cup of tea or a glass of Ice tea with something like cookies or chips. However for everything to not taste good for you there seems to be another problem happening there. I would get checked out by a doctor if I were you. That is not normal unless you are really sick with fever and a bad cold for everything to not taste good. I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care!

If I wasn't hungry, no I probably wouldn't eat. If I literally wasn't doing anything other than drinking water, I guess I would force an apple down, or perhaps drink one of those protein shakes just to make sure I'm getting all the nutrition I need. I would love to never feel hungry again. I get very happy when I have days where all food looks bad, and as a result I don't even feel hungry. Losing weight wouldn't hurt me.

if this happens to me usually I will try different taste. let's say I've been eating spicy food lately, I'm going to try something overly salty or sweet just to neutralize my taste and bring it back to 'normal'. I don't eat 3 times a day myself. so what you experience rarely happens to me. I think you are just bored or your mind is onto something else. I don't know about sickness but it's possible.

You must eat, even it taste is horrid. Your body need an energy ti survive. Usually that is a simpton that you become sick, like influenza or maybe something related with your stomach or digestive hurt.

I'm thinking something is wrong and that you should go see a doctor.

Hello jugsjugs. I am so sorry that you have had a problem eating. But I think that you are right that you force yourself to eat something however much it is. But have you seen a doctor for it? A doctor can always tells us and helps us a lot with some of the treatment he offers. I got sick a few days ago and each time I ate something, I could only eat half leaving the other half untouched because I could not finish it. These two days I am getting much better.

5 days is much too long to go without eating. Drink some soup. This will replenish your body's electrolytes, and will eventually make you feel much better. Drink fresh cold water often, but don't overdo it. If you do not eat, your body will begin to feed upon itself from within, in order to sustain its existence...and THAT my friend, is NOT a good sign. Also, see your doctor and tell him of your symptoms. He/she can best advise you on what to do. Take care of yourself. cdrxo

I had that experience of feeling like not wanting to eat but if I don't eat I'll get gastric pain so I'll force myself to eat. Sometimes I just eat an apple or just drink some fruit juice that'll be enough to get me through the day.

I would still eat just because you need to eat to survive
