  • Lack of hunger

    A week ago I had started a thread saying how ravenous I was immediately following dinner, which would subsequently lead to me gorging on almonds... usually, lol. Since then I had been really paying attention to my hunger and satiety levels before and after eating, only to discover that the more attention I paid to my bodily signals, the less hungry I felt.

    Now, I feel as though I'm not hungry/eating often enough, haha. Many times I skip breakfast and force myself to eat a lunch and dinner before heading to bed shortly thereafter.

    So I guess what I'm asking now is - With regards to skipping meals, when does it go too far? Minimum 2 good meals/day? I'm not in danger of malnutrition or anything

    When someone notices adverse phenomena?

    It's said that if you fast you begin to lose muscle-mass after 16 hours. Now I guess if you ate a meal early in the evening at 6 o'clock, and didn't eat breakfast till latish at 8 o'clock, you would already have gone 14 hours. Possibly if someone usually ate early in the evening but then often didn't eat till midday it would be sub-optimal.

    I don't suppose if someone is feeling fine and isn't gaining or losing weight drastically on any particular regime there can be much wrong. You could only get a closer grip on the process by taking measurements - having blood tests done.
