Not Hungry Until I Eat

Maybe your body is trying to tell you this is what you need. I follow the keto food plan and Intermitten Fasting, so I never eat before noon and nothing after 7:00 PM. I am never hungry when I first get up, just 2 cups of coffee. It is the best thing I have done for myself. More energy, feel much better all around and losing weight. I have noticed I am not laying down for a nap during the day anymore.
I wanted to edit this because I left out the word noon but the edit button wasn't there.

My dad used to tell of a guy (let's call him Gus) he worked with who was as skinny as a rail. Gus never felt hungry. His trick was to start frying onions and that aroma would trick his senses into making him feel hungry. Believe me, I don't need that help! :LOL:

I eat when I am hungry. I do not have a set time to eat. I have coffee when I first get up in the morning. I have breakfast around 9 or 10 . I eat when I feel like it. I try to get 3 meals in.
 
My husband's sense of smell hasn't returned since he caught the virus in March,...he's never hungry either, he would go all day without eating food if I wasn't here to nag him
It started to return weakly, Holly, then disappeared again. I have gone without food, but my stomach pays for it as I am on several meds that require food. So I'll eat a banana or a small container of yogurt or a couple of spoonsful of cottage cheese. I force myself to eat one meal a day.

Hubs isn't on any meds Lois.. and really he'll only eat one meal a day too, sometimes none if truth be told.. but I try and get him to eat at least once, but he really just doesn't feel hungry while he's lost his sense of taste and smell...

Sorry you lost yours again, I remember you being pleased when it initially returned after your illness.. have you spoken to a doc ?..it could be at your age (with all due respect) something else causing it

Yes, Holly, I did speak to the doctor and he said that my age and allergies will reduce my ability to smell or taste. Plus having COVID, really did a number on me since it attacked my sinuses. What really bothers me about this is if there is a fire, I wouldn't smell the smoke.

Unfortunately neither can my husband, Lois.. he can't smell leaking gas or anything that could possibly kill him...
