Why does food appeal less to me?

Asked by ducky_dnl (5378points) April 15th, 2010

Lately I haven’t had an appetite. Today I was at the grocery store with my aunt, and none of the food appealed to me. I just cringed at all of it. I don’t think I’m fat, nor do I think any of my meds could be causing it. I just don’t like food anymore. Help?

Any new stresses in your life or emotional things happening. Those things always affect my eating habits and desire for food

What are you on meds for?

In my opinion, the food in most grocery stores should gross you out. It’s all packaged or sprayed with argon to keep it from ripening or whatever. Good food comes from farmer’s markets in my book. So maybe your body is telling you to stop with this processed food business and get the real stuff.

You could be tired, stressed, sick, or even depressed. Some people don’t eat when there depressed ironically.

Depression can do that. I’ve had to force myself to eat for the last six months, only a raging headache reminds me that I haven’t eaten.

If it’s contagious, I’ll come have coffee with you.

It could be your meds, ask your doctor.
