Exclamation Forgetting to eat - July 28th 2014, 03:38 AM

I workout a ton. (see obsessive behavior post) Sometimes i just don't eat. I will burn off tons of calories and just never get hungry. My weight changes about [Edited] lbs in about two weeks. I will notice I loose weight by [Edited] lbs one week and i realize I haven't really been eating anything. So I give myself permission to eat more and I gain it back. I am very determined and have many food allergies so most the time I will tell myself I cannot eat something because it has sugar, something im allergic to, or High fructose Corn Syrup. OR I cant to find something I am not allergic to and i just don't eat and then forget I was even hungry. Weird.

Note- Im not struggling with depression or any mental illnesses.

Hey Fox,

'Forgetting to eat' is a common thing when your mind is focused on doing something, whether it be working out, talking with friends or even just watching TV. Your brain is more focused on the primary focus of attention than other 'processes' so to speak, that run through your head. I wouldn't say this is anything to worry too much about, however I would recommend the tip below.

A tip that I would give you if you want to remember to eat your meals is to schedule them, assuming you're the one that makes your own food. Schedule your eating times and meals. Set your phone alarm to go off at those times. Just make it a priority in general! Although it doesn't seem like anything to worry about, forgetting to eat can take its toll on your body, if you let it do so, you could find yourself exhausted a lot of the time, as well as losing an unhealthy amount of weight, which could result in you not being able to work out or do some sports.

If you want to talk any more about this, feel free to send me a VM/PM.

Take care,


PM/VM Me if you need any sort of help, I welcome ANYONE who wants to talk.

"In case you didn't know, dead people don't bleed. If you can bleed, see it, feel it, then you know you're alive. It's irrefutable, undeniable proof. Sometimes I just need a little reminder.
