So you don't eat much but are not losing weight?
The best advice i can give you... keep a food diary. Write down what you eat, when you eat it, and weigh yourself once a week. Forget about losing or gaining weight, its just an exercise to track patterns in your diet and metabolism. In a couple of weeks or a month, if you are still worried, you will have something to show your GP.
If you don't trust your GP to help you, find a new one.
BTW Cleigh, your little one was sick recently, how did you go with that? I posted on your thread but you didn't check back with us

anyway, e. have you you had your iron tested? i say this because when i was rather badly anaemic in high school i had no appetite. i could be really starving, but to actually look at food just made me feel sick. the doctor told me to graze. mum had exactly the same problem once when she did the 40 hour famine, couldn't eat afterwards. sounds like something has triggered your appetite to turn off like that?
try iron testing though, if you're anaemic it may help explain the fatigue.

Do you drink lots? Like other things besides water? My DH will do what you do. He eats when I make us dinner or remind him. He mentioned this to a dietician once along with the fact that he drinks an unhealthy amount of energy drinks and litres of milk a day. The dietician told him that he was basically getting all his energy that he needs a day from his drinks and so that is why he isn't hungry. Obviously not getting all the nutrients he needs but he certainly isn't dropping weight or feeling unwell from it unless it gets to about day 4 or so.

And thank you soo much for asking. I never went back to the thread. I have a bad habbit of doing that :P He went to the ER but after being there so long they turned him out because he didnt throw up while we were there. He was better after that though. I had to force feed him drink, he wasnt happy about that. Glad he got better though.
