Does watching food network effect how hungry you are and how much you eat?

I'm glad you're taking a pro-active approach to your health. Good luck. ...Read more

I woke up this morning not feeling hungry. I made it through the whole day with little food. Now, I feel like I need to eat but my body doesn't?

Restricting food?: The way you're describing your situation ("made it through the day with little food") makes me wonder whether you've been purposefully restricting your food intake? After prolonged fasting, natural hunger responses can become disturbed. You're in charge of your body; feed it. You could be dealing with an eating disorder. Please see your doctor about this -- it's very dangerous for you. ...Read more

How do you overcome the desire to eat when not hungry? I didn't eat dinner, I'm not hungry, but it is a struggle to not go get food.

2 Types of Hunger: The 1st is physiologic, your body needs energy & nutrients; 2nd is "habit" hunger, you are used to snacking. The 1st is triggered by things such as dropping blood sugar; the 2nd by environmental triggers. Example, if you are used to sitting down at 8 pm in front of the tv with a bowl of ice cream, your mind will expect ice cream when you sit down at 8 to watch tv.

Start with PCP: Start with your primary doctor - talk about your concerns. Ask if he/she has some ideas: meds, etc. Also ask if they can recommend a counsellor. You're not crazy, but you need someone to help you get past this road block. If there is a group called "food addicts anonymous" in your area, they can be very helpful (not overeaters anonymous-that's a different group). You can do this! Good luck. ...Read more
