Is there anything I can get to increase my appitite I only manage to eat 1 small meal a day sometimes I don't eat at all I just don't feel hungry?

Is there anything I can get to increase my appitite I only manage to eat 1 small meal a day sometimes I don't eat at all I just don't feel hungry?

Yes...: First, you'll want to be sure you are evaluated by your physician to rule out any important underlying medical causes for low appetite. If there are none found, then simply increasing your calorie usage through increased activity such as aerobic exercise will increase your metabolism and thus your appetite. Also, eating small meals throughout the day may increase metabolism/appetite. ...Read more

What do I do if I don't have no appetite? I don't feel hungry and sometimes I have force myself to eat something. I haven't eat in the past few days maybe even a week.

Hello.: Hello. When you don't take in calories for several days in a row to a week, your body goes into a starvation mode to protect itself. Thus, it starts to burn calories very slowly. I don't know if you are a young person, and if so if you are happy with your size or not. I don't know if you are an older person and this is a chronic pattern. If so, don't know if your lack of appetite is accompanied things like GI symptoms, weakness or feeling ill. However, all animals (including us people) need food to sustain us. I would make yourself continue to take in healthy food even if the portions are small. I also recommend that you let your doctor know that you go for up to a week without eating. He or she will likely look into the reason for your lack of appetite and perhaps have you work with a nutritionist. Take care. ...Read more

Some mornings I feel hungry so ill have a bowl of cereal & I don't usually eat breakfast, if I eat breakfast now im not hungry the rest of the day. Why?

ComplexBehaviorIssue: While your question may seem simple, as complex Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, it is fantastically beyond accurate medical disease system/any precise scientific understanding. Why? Because medicine mostly about simpler issues, body: cells, tissues, organs, organs systems & advanced disease/not health. Health too complex plus humans take for granted. Thus focus is on symptoms of advanced disease. ...Read more

I feel sick every time I eat. I barely ever feel hungry and only eat once a day sometimes not t all. What is wrong with me?

Sick: Please start with a visit to your doctor. Very likely you will be referred to a Gastroenterologist.

Another possibility is that your condition represents an emotional issue. If that is something you have considered a referral to a Psychologist is in order.

I never feel hungry enough to eat a meal more than once a day, but how many meals should I eat in a day to be healthy? And what is a good size meal?

I never feel hungry enough to eat a meal more than once a day, but how many meals should I eat in a day to be healthy? And what is a good size meal?

You may be a grazer!: If you are maintaining a healthy weight, it may be that you "graze" through the day - eating small, frequent mini-meals. There's nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, it may be a healthier way to eat. Try keeping a diary for a few days of everything you actually eat. If you have any doubt at that point, talk to your doctor. She/he or a nutritionist can help you sort it out. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

I exercise regularly (3 times a day), I eat my 3 meals regularly but I seldom feel hungry (for years) and I am about very skinny. Please help.?

Doctor can evaluate: If a person has been exercising a lot for many years, and has never had much appetite, but is otherwise very healthy... Then he should ask his doctor (hopefully a doctor he's had for several years or more) whether or not there is a problem. Some people are just slim (their whole family is slim). If the doctor thinks there is a disorder, then he can do more evaluations and tests. ...Read more

For the past couple of weeks my appetite has decreased. I can litteraly go a full day without eating and not feel hungry. Also whenever I do eat I take one bite and fell like I have to throw up?

I am assuming: That you cannot be or have taken appropriate tests to rule out early PREGNANCY????? If this is NOT a possibility your symptoms sound VIRAL. A norovirus ("GI Flu") may present this way.

Hope this helps!

Haven't eaten all day, don't feel hungry, feel sick and burp and horible burp when I eat and it's horrible, I'm scared, can stress cause this feeling?

Haven't eaten all day, don't feel hungry, feel sick and burp and horible burp when I eat and it's horrible, I'm scared, can stress cause this feeling?

Yes: These symptoms may be caused by anxiety or stress. Try a light diet. Also try not to force yourself to burp as this only causes you to swallow more air and cause more belching. Instead eat a fat free, light diet and take mylanta after meals to prevent gas buildup. Drinking flat ginger ale helps settle your stomach. See your MD if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I feel hungry but when its time to eat then I can't even finish my food, I am just very thirsty, I had a cold a few days ago, what could be wrong?

Stomach Flu: If your symptoms just started after your recent "cold"; then you may be experiencing irritation of your stomach by your "viral infection". Something that people call it: "stomach flu". In this case that usually may last a few days; warm liquids: soups; warm tea/ milk ; non-spicy food would be better. However, if your symptoms persists beyond a week or two, then it is better to see your doctor. ...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 eat a lot but still I feel hungry! Why could it be?

Food choice: If you eat fast food, processed food, sugar or artificially sweetened drinks, your blood sugar will rise too quickly and then Insulin will be secreted making it fall and this will make you hungry. You might be eating foods that have addictive properties so that the more you eat the more you want. Try eating healthy unprocessed vegetables, fruits, high quality meat, fish, and eggs, and water, . ...Read more

Is it normal to drop 35 lbs in 3 1/2 months? 10 of the lbs in last 2 weeks, and I feel nauteous all the time and I feel hungry but when I start to eat

Weight loss: Your weight loss is not normal, and may be due to your chronic nausea. A typical evaluation would include labwork (CBC, CMP, lipase) with an ultrasound of the abdomen to check your gall bladder. Also, see a doctor and have an exam done. This can be a serious problem. Please get help. ...Read more

I've lost 15 pounds in about 3 weeks, I've been very stressed with high anxiety. I don't feel hungry at all n when I try to eat I can't. Is this ok?

No, You are right.: You are correct that there is something wrong and it would be wise to see a doctor asap. Also, find a therapist/psychologist experienced in severe anxiety and/or eating disorders. It sounds like the appetite issue followed the stress/anxiety, but both concerns deserve attention now. Till your therapy gets going, make sure you keep hydrated, think about supplements, & eat whatever you can. Best 2u! ...Read more

I don't know why, when I eat breakfast, only cereal fills me up. Anything else still makes me feel hungry. Your thoughts?

Creals are good brea: Cereals make a great breakfast, so why not use them? Just be careful that there is not much sugar in the cereal you use. Also you can mix some proteins with the cereal. This can be obtained from using eggs or nuts mixed with your cereals (almonds and walnuts are great source of proteins and will keep your appetite in control for many more hours!). ...Read more
