anyone else not able to feel stomach hunger anymore? only know they need food by their vision going black/ feeling tired? my sister literally was lying on my stomach the other day and was like "i hear ur stomach growling" and i was like wtf because i wasnt hungry at all nor did i hear or feel it. i think i get hungry a lot at the gym (mentally) because ill just be exhausted and my vision will go dark but i always think that i need a nap and only recently realized that i think its my brain telling me to eat. im medium restricting at 800 cals a day right now so i am not sure why its this bad??

When I was 18-20 I would forget to eat for 5 days.. just forgot! And then I got into a relationship where my partner at the time noticed and he was the reason I ate at the time.. otherwise I would’ve gone on not caring.. I miss those days..

I don't feel hunger! I eat when I feel weak or when I don't have enough energy to concentrate properly at work (I'm low restricting tho).

i don’t get hungry really. my hunger cues are nausea, dizziness, headache, increased fatigue and more palpitations than usual lmao.
