    Okay, I'll be to-the-point: I haven't really eaten much at all for about a week other than some small snacks here and there to keep up my bloodsugar. These last couple days, though, I haven't had much an appetite at all which seemed weird to me but welcome over a constantly growling tummy.

    Just earlier, my mum actually made me sit down at the dinner table and eat -- not much, just a small (topping-less) baked potato. I literally couldn't even stomach that. I felt horribly nauseous and couldn't keep it down for five minutes. Now I'm still left feeling horribly sick.

    Anyone going through this?

    Yes.. I completely understand what you are talking about.
    I go through periods where I decide I HATE food, that food is evil and that everything tastes like shit. I have a hard time keeping anything down during these periods. I mostly just pick at my plate and play around with the food on there until I can't stand it anymore and I end up throwing it out.
    Even if it's my favourite dish, when I am in hate-food-mode, it will make me ill.

    Sorry to hear you have a similar problem..it's not much fun.

    Urgh. That's exactly how I am. But now, whether I physically feel like eating or not, it's hard.

    On the rare occasions I actually do have an appetite, the amount of food it takes to make me feel 'full' is drastically less than how much it would've taken months ago.

    I don't exactly hate it, it's just I get full to easily. I could make a plate of pasta and it would take one bite before i'm just turned off the whole thing.
    Plus, food for me is pretty tasteless these days, I don't seem to enjoy food anymore.

    That's the same with me. I told my doctor about not even finding food enjoyable anymore -- even in taste -- and she said my depression had something to do with that... But she didn't seem too concerned so...

    There are antidepressants with the side effect of increased appetite/weight gain. Maybe you should ask your doctor about going on one of them.
