How to increase the appetite? I tend to lose interest in food after being hungry for a little while..

How to increase the appetite? I tend to lose interest in food after being hungry for a little while..

Try eating small: Balanced healthy low fat snacks every 2-4 hrs (~150-200 kcals). Sometimes, as one eats, less, the hunger signal gets '.Lost'. I am assuming you don't have problems w your sense of smell, sinusitis, abdominal pain, nausea, etc. Also try increasing your daily exercise - e.g. A daily vigorous 30 min walk, etc, preferably outdoors. Finally, any chance you have some depression &/or anxiety going on? ...Read more

What to do to increase my appetite. Sometime I m not having food for 4-5 hrs and still m not feeling that much hungry. Please help me?

Can you clarify?: Most of us feel hunger only when we really need to eat, and that depends on how much we've eaten recently. If you have a reasonably healthy weight and are physically fit, then stop worrying about not feeling hungry, and don't let somebody's superstition tell you when you should. Be glad you don't feel compelled to eat when you're not actually hungry; your physician can be your guide here. ...Read more

Fall and winter I can lose weight but now spring is here and I feel more hungry and gainded 2 pounds how to curb my hunger?

Know the food conten: If you know a bit about what you eat (carbs/fats and protein) then you can adjust your appetite. Avoid eating sugar/carb loaded foods as they will increase your appetite. Instead use proteins in large proportion and use fillers (veggies and fruits) so that your caloric intake remains under 1500/ day. Increase your movements, walk every excuse you can find. It will help to burn off some of the calori. ...Read more

How to control hunger? I feel too hungry & eat more which leads to gain wt. I took diethylpropion 75mg for a month and it was a temporary solution.

Frequency: Eat small amounts every 3 hours or so. This will not only help control your appetite, but will also keep you from gaining weight. Long periods between meals encourage the body to store fat and gain weight. Consider some of your intake being (raw) vegetables and dips. Increase your water drinking. Daily exercise, but easy does it so you look forward to it instead of dreading it. ...Read more

Possible cause for me barely being hungry in the last 2 weeks or so. Appetite is there. I can still easily eat in general. I just don't feel hungry.

Many possibilities: If you are still able to "force yourself to eat", this implies that there is no direct obstruction of the gut. Usually the cause is some type of "toxin" or disruption in your system, ranging from an accumulation of liver or kidney byproducts, a sodium or other electrolyte imbalance or an infection, or less likely, cancer or autoimmune disease. Depression also possible. ...Read more

I am a recovering bulimic and haven't relapsed for months. Haven't had an appetite in over a month. I can barely tell when I'm hungry. What is wrong?

See doctor: Assuming there is no underlying medical condition affecting your appetite, you may be depressed. See your pcp to review how you feel and make sure there is no medical reason for decreased appetite. Include a list of your meds, any alcohol/drug/tobacco/caffeine use and current stresses. If all is normal, ask for referral to a mental health professional for an guidance. I hope this helps. Take care. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel hungry if you ate 2 hours ago? I was done eating around 11:25, and its now 2:15. I feel awkward and empty inside, like hunger.?

Time of day? Night?: It wouldn't alarm me to hear this... But it would seem too soon for it to actually be 'appetite' per se. Nineteen-year olds can be ravenously hungry as they are still growing. In a woman, i'd want to know when her last menstrual period was and if she'd been sexually active, with or without birth control! then again, many people tend to address anxiety with food. You are right to question it! ...Read more
