    Why is my appetite gone?

    I'm a growing boy, I have a healthy appetite. I was healthily eating aroun 3000- 4000 (w/ junk) calories a day.. but lately, my apetite is gone.

    Here are the factors in my life that have happened (and maybe caused change):

    school is out.
    No more stress
    i drink a little bit more now(still not too much, too often)
    i go to sleep same time, 1, but wake up around 11, or 12 now
    i usually go out in the sun for a little bit in the mornin
    i ride my bike more

    i cant figure out why my apetite is gone
    il just wake up and not want to eat anything, whereas i usually woulda wolfed down a chicken breast or two or three (if ample hot sauce was provided) and an ensure (250 cals) and a protein bar (200 cals)
    but now all i can do is try to choke down an opticen in the mornin...

    any help?? any supplements that will help? anyone have this happen to them?? I've lost about 2 pounds b/c of not eating enough.
    6'0 - 176lb
    ~14% bf

    Maybe more rested? Doesn't really matter whether you are hungry or not, you should still eat if you don't want to lose weight.
    Burritos are the bomb for bulking!

    maybe start going to sleep and waking up a decent hour. I would also take it easy on the drinking.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I had this problem for a while too, except I would throw up if I ate too much. Are you taking any medications, because I think that's what did it for me.

    You should try to find out the cause of the problem and fix that but in the mean time you could try drinking some peppermint tea. The menthol is supposed to stimulate the production of stomach acid which in turn stimulates appetite.

    My key to eating right was waking up early enough to eat a full breakfast, rather than waking up shortly before lunch.
