Unhappy Eating less lately... - September 9th 2010, 05:38 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I don't know why... Maybe it's because I don't like the food prepared for me. It's like almost every day I dump the bowl of rice my mom makes for me... I haven't been doing it as much in the past... I just don't like the look of the meat on top of it... Sometimes, my mom finds the food in the garbage. She told me today that I've gotten skinnier and that she's worried...

It's like I only eat junk food as well, either that or Subway (then again, I ask for a lot of salt and pepper). I'm not a little kid anymore, so I don't know why I have these habits...

Maybe you should try new foods, you may find you like a change and then you can eat healthier. If your mum only makes rice, ask her to make something else. If I was given rice everyday for tea I would start biffing it too.
Also, try and tell your mum not to buy as much junk food. She can stock the cupboard up with healthier foods, and then you wont be tempted, and some of the lower fat foods actually taste really nice. Also breads and that, you can do lots with a bit of bread, bake it with spaghetti and cheese on it!! Crackers are good, Marmite/Vegemite goes well on crackers, and there you go, you have a healthy snack.
I wouldn't say you have an eating disorder though, I wouldnt even say you have disordered eating because really, it just seems as though you are sick of the same foods, but of course we never get sick of junk food! :P

PS...I LOVE Subway!

I don't know about that. Maybe the depression is messing up my eating habits. I buy most of the junk food myself. It's not exactly the rice that's the problem. It's the meat or shit on it...

Ask her to leave the meat off, or to put it on the side? It might just be that the food doesn't appeal to you. A lot of us are very picky eaters, no matter how old we get, and sometimes if a food looks bad or gross, we won't even try it. The best bet is to try new things, or to try it without the meat on it.

Depression can affect your appetite. It can make you very hungry, or not feel hungry at all. And it can make you not want to eat.Talk to your doctor. They can help you figure out why you are losing weight, and if it is indeed related to your depression.

Hang in there.
