Ever Been Hungry But Nothing's Appealing?

Well, i personally, get hungry a lot, that's just me, i can go on eating for a long time, and then just suddenly not want to eat at all for a few days... But I've come to a new crossroads... I'm Hungry, But just nothing, nothing at all, is appealing... I don't want anything.. My husband asks me if i want him to bring anything home... I just don't want it, nothing, no idea what i want, but i want something... It's frustrating... So, I've been eating fries, for the most part, and a little bit of odds and ends, but the thing is, seems like the taste of most things isn't the same, and my favorite foods, are now just grose... I know it happens, and not long ago actually i was told by a friend that my tastes of food would change... well even though i knew it was possible... i didn't think it would happen... Now, well I'm just frustrated... i want something, but don't know what, and don't like anything I'm eating, steak for instance, one of my favorite foods in the world... Ick.... I've had a couple of foods in the last couple of days that are appealing, but even ice cream, i don't want... something i would have never turned down before... I'm not looking for medical advice, i know it's a natural part of life, and no i'm not going to go to a doctor to have him tell me that it's just normal... I just want to know if this has happened to you? how long did it last? and how frustrated you were when it did...? And for those of you it hasn't happened to, do you think it'll ever happen to you? or do you think that when people will tell you that it'll happen to you just the same that your different?

It happens to me many times... I know that I'm hungry, I know that I want to eat, I know that there is a lot of stuff that I like eating in the house, but I just keep pulling open the cupboards and the fridge and closing and opening them again because I don't see anything I want. Even when my favourite foods are there. It's weird and I don't like it, but luckily it doesn't last all that long and I'll find something that I like the next day, when just the day before I didn't find it appealing.

haha, that's cute, yeah my husband sometimes looks at me like I've lost my mind when i get into moods like that..... or when he loses the remote, and i go looking for it and for some reason i go to the fridge forgetting what i was looking for.

All...the...time!!!! This is a common happening to me. Often on nights that my partner works late, he will call me and ask me if I ate. Most often, I have not. He will then ask me if I want him to pick something up. But then there is silence on the phone. *Cricket*Cricket* I don't know! I don't know what I want. Well, his response when it started happening to me was that I must not be that hungry if I can not choose. But that wasn't the case at all! I WAS hungry! Just nothing sounded good to me! He would start naming things off that he could pick up...and all I could do was sigh. :( Then there are times that we will get up on his day off during the weekend and make breakfast for all the kids. I will be drinking my coffee and when he asks me if I want any eggs when he is done making the kids eggs (I normally have to make the pancakes. LOL)...even though I am hungry and planned on eating eggs...I don't want them. What to do. Well, I starve until I finally give in or my partner talks me into something. ha ha It is a good thing he knows my little quirks. Because if it were left up to me, I would probably blow away in a good Oklahoma wind! LOL

haha, i totally know what you mean, it can just get so frustrating! I don't know, i think your right about it being a woman thing, my husband gets frustrated cause we can sit on the phone for an hour arguing about what i should eat, that i need to eat, blah blah blah, when i am soo hungry, but i just don't want anything.... And then when i do decide on something, i take a couple of bites and it's like - eew, grose, uh no.... i don't want that.... Eventually, once in a while, like once in the last few days, i'll decide on something and enjoy it enough to make it a meal. Thanks!
