Problems eating?

Jul!a Jul!a
So I have this problem with eating. It's not that I don't like eating, because I do, I just don't do it as often as I know I should. I'm not trying to diet or starve myself or any other specific purpose, but even though I'm physically hungry, I just don't feel like eating a lot of the time. If food is in front of me, I'll usually pick at it slowly and end up eating all of it, but I have to force myself to get up and get the food in front myself.

I guess what I'm wondering is does anybody else ever get like this and does anybody have any recommendations? I should probably also admit right off the bat that any kind of drastic changes probably won't happen. I do mean well with trying to get everything on a regular schedule and in order, but I don't do sudden drastic change very well lol. I know that I can get back to eating regularly, I'm just not sure where to start.

I have this problem... but it's because I have something called dumping syndrome. This makes me feel really sick after eating, so I tend to avoid eating a lot of the time in order to avoid feeling sick.

I think the fact that you are making a conscious effort to eat regularly is a good start!

It happens to me when I'm anxious or really stressed out. I can't eat very much in one sitting (I hate feeling "full"), but I try to eat something small every three hours or so. A typical day for me would be half a cup of cereal with milk, then a little while later a banana, or a handful of nuts. Then I eat dinner, but I usually won't finish even half of it. Eating is an absolute chore for me, I don't find anything enjoyable about "real food". Desserts are the exception and even then it's pretty rare for me to have something sweet during the day. I just do as much as I can and avoid eating around people who are unfamiliar with my habits. Especially if I know those people scarf their food like there's no tomorrow. If my husband finishes before I do, then I just give up and stop eating. It's very weird and I know it's totally in my head, but I can't help it and I seem to be relatively healthy.

Most of the time, I really enjoy eating food. I just love it. Then there are certain times when I don't feel like making food or I don't have a food option that tempts me much, and during those times I'll feel very bored with the idea of eating. I've noticed the boredom doesn't happen as much if I'm more active. And I try to drink water throughout the day so when I feel hungry, I know it's really hunger and not thirst.

I'd recommend trying to enjoy any food you'd actually want to eat. Like if you have something you want to eat, eat it really slowly and purposefully, so you bring back the "reward" of eating (the flavor, the texture, the smoothness, whatever it is that's good about what you're eating). And exercise more so your body wants food more, even if your mind isn't egging you on.

Maybe create anticipation for the meal the way you create it for sex. I think we can all agree that sex is more satisfying after you've been fantasizing all day. Plan out during the day what you're having for dinner, make sure it's something good. And just think about it throughout the day. Fantasize about the flavor, the texture, the aroma..by the time it's in front of you, you won't be able to resist ripping its clothes off!! Err..I mean, digging in!

Thank you all for the responses so far! I do exercise regularly, my husband and I go 4 times a week first thing in the morning to make sure we actually do it. There's a combination of warm-up, weight lifting, and cardio. I'm doing better about drinking water rather than other things, and making a point to drink more of it in general.

This is me too.

My roomie has to ask me if I'd eaten that day or not. I usually have no interest in breakfast and coffee kills my appetite into the afternoon.

i'm the exact same way! if i were to be a 'good girl' i would make a commitment to make a little menu for every day of the week and go to the store, buy the shit for it, and always have food in my house. i simply never have food in my house to eat. i eat out alot and fast food and stuff too... definitely not healthy.

It's actually very refreshing, well maybe refreshing isn't the right word, but it's nice to know I'm not the only one.
