So a few weeks ago I caught a bad cold and I started eating less.. I noticed that i was losing a little weight, but now that my cold is gone I'm still not eating like I used to. I think I eat like one meal a day.. I still eat junk food like I have for a while now but I think I'm still losing weight.. I'm not sure if I should be happy or worried. Now that I'm not used to eating as much as I did my appetite has decreased. It takes me longer to get hungry I think... So should I be worried?

You have become unhealthy lately. You should try switching to fruits instead of eating junk food. And eating one meal.a day isn' healthy as well.

I know, I mentioned the junk food because even with that I'm still losing weight.. and I do eat fruits.

I was sick too from end of November to December, more than 3 weeks. I only drink water for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I lost so much weight that I can wear all the size 's' dress and skirts which I used to wear last time. My appetite getting better but not as much as last time before I was sick. I had toothache too, my right side wisdom tooth so I can chew much. I see it positively. Wishing you a Happy New Year 2013.

Before this in December last year i lack of appetite due to stress and now I'm back to normal. But it is different situations for you, you will get sick if that cold still continued, but i think your body is adjusting and trying to return back to normal. Dont worry you will healthy again but if you still worried you can go to clinic.

Think of the favorite food you can't resist during your normal days. Then look for it and try eating. Since they are your favorite and considered so appetizing, I think it will help you regain your appetite in no time.

Sometimes, when we are preoccupied with a lot of things, it will trigger us to lose some weight so the best thing that one should do is to take in meals throughout the day. Don’t skip a meal! Although you are very busy with some things, it’s best to put in mind food rather than work, putting food in your body not only generates energy but also increases your sense of appetite.

We're you over eating before though? Maybe your body is just going through a stage. You know sometimes I would eat a lot of food and then after a while I'd eat less again. As long as you are eating when you're hungry I think you will be fine. If you are losing too much weight and you are getting too skinny then see a doctor in case it's something else.
