Hey there,

Is there a reason why you haven't been eating? Are you experiencing psychological intrusive thoughts, is it something physical such as being sick, or other factors? I'd just like more info to fully understand your issue and give advice. Good luck, stay strong!

So which one of you is asking for advice? Not hugely important, just curious.

Anyway. As anyone on this site will tell you, not eating is extremely unhealthy. In order to function, your body needs food. Without it, your body will shut down and you will die a slow and painful death. Gross, but true. Obviously, we're not allowed to post weight or calorie numbers, but Google is your friend here. Depending on your weight and height, there is a set number of calories every day that your body needs. Obviously it's next to impossible to have the exact same amount every day because each day is different, so it's okay to be a bit under or over sometimes.

When you say you "just don't want to eat" do you mean you're maybe not feeling like it so perhaps you've just got a winter bug, or are you hungry and just stopping yourself? If it's the latter, you do need to speak to someone before it escalates and you get sick. Restricting food is serious and not something you should get into a habit of.
Talk to someone, and meanwhile, try to eat something. Three small meals a day is a good thing to aim for, with little snacks between depending on what times you eat. Even just some fruit or a yoghurt. It has energy and will keep your body going for a bit.

Hopefully this helped a little.

Louise.

I'm going to close this thread, as the OP has been banned. Jen, you're more than welcome to start a new thread as this account if you choose.

As always, PM me with questions or concerns.
