I haven’t eaten in a week
I wasn’t hungry for about 4 days and then on day 5 I was finally hungry and I tried to eat but I threw it up, and ever since then I have been throwing up everything that I eat, I don’t know what to do because I want to eat I just cant hold down anything.
Since writing this post Anonymous may have helped people, but has not within the last 4 days.

id talk to your doctor and see what he/she saids
and maybe eat alittle at a time like a piece of bread and then after like an hour eat some soup and after an hour eat something else.
but also go to doctor
Drink water. juice. tea. nothing thick or too sweet or salty. Then see a freaking doctor. For serious.
hey, the throwing up is a reaction to the fact that you went so long without food.
please, drink water. 2/3sips every 5mins. literally.
do this for about 2hours.
then have a sip of some pure juice, apple or orange is best.
do this for an hour. this will help build up your vitamin C.
then you could try having soup, or some plain pasta. have a tiny bit and have something you dont mind warming up and eating. because you have to take it slow.
then if you can have some thing like toast.
stay away from butter, cheese, milk, and things with sugar in.
but i would urge you to see your doctor about this. especially if it doesnt get better after like 24hours.
I cant say it any better than barbie already did.
I find dried pineapple is good.
a rekon that you should see your GP
get an iv …
eat a very little at a time a few bites here a few bites there a few sips of water or apple juice nothing to heavy for a day eat slowly like a bite every 3-5 minutes on the next day try a peice of toast at once if you cant eat stuff after doing this go see a doc in fact go see a doc first
First off why would you go so long with out eating? I mean sure I am not hungry sometimes but I still try to get some food into me so that I have actually had something!
Go see your doctor and get help right away!
its okay i haven’t been eating lately either…i forced myself to eat some bread last night…im fat and need to lose weight….i didn’t start not eating on purpose i just havent been hungry…and last night the only reason i had that bread is because i was drinking lol…so its been about 4 days since i had real food…i had a slice of pizza…that was the first thing i ate that day…but before that, i honestly dont remember what i had to eat…should i force myself to eat?…i know i shouldnt do this to lose weight but its whatever
im haveing the same thing happen to me! i ahvent been hungry the past 4 days, so i didnt eat, and when i try and eat somthing, like a cookie, i just feel sick afterwards. plus i havent been tired either. i stsyed up a full 38hours, and just yesterday going into day i got..12 1/2 hours, not minusing the interruptions of people comging in my room and waking me up for no reason >.> heres my food list tooo;;
26; a baked potato, water, and a butter piece of bread
27; half a box of bunch a crunch at the movies, half cup of orange juice
28; a cookie
29; a cookie, 8advil, orange juice, and 3cheese fries, which made me feel like i was going to hurl so i threw them out.
so i might have the same thing you do D;
I haven’t eaten since Sunday & it is now Thursday. I ate Sunday after another 3 days without food and my stomach is hurting so badly, I can’t take it and suicide has taken over my thoughts. My husband won’t let me eat HIS food and my 27 year old son is no better. My son made a huge pot of spaghetti & chili (bought on my asking) and when I asked him for some, he jumped in my face, told me no and other choice words I won’t repeat and I fell down and hurt my back again. I am on BP meds that are to be taken with food and all I’m getting is a bad heart rhythm, chest pains and I don’t have any money to get to a doctor. I have an appointment on Monday, but I don’t think I can wait that long. This Dr. Appt. is for my BP check and more pain meds for the kidney stones. I normally drink at least 8 glasses of water, but I aim for 10-12 and have only been getting about 4-6 oz. daily. I have called for help, but to no avail and my doctor just laughed at me last visit on Dec. 01 2008 and told me to come back on the 30th. My husband spent my co-pay money which I asked to hold, but he always yells at me or sets traps for me to fall down. I’m 5″1 and petite while he’s 6′2″ and big & strong, but I can kick his butt under normal conditions if necessary and not have to deal with constant hunger, but I’m too weak to walk and I can feel my kidneys and bladder shut down. He disables the phone during the day so I can’t call for help and since he’s a telecommunication specialist, he knows how to abuse me with freaky tricks that put me in mortal danger and I’m scared! My son is cooking something that smells heavenly and when I asked for some, he threatened me and this is my food he is cooking! Where are my rights and should I just wait until it gets worse and kill myself because I have control there and then they can’t hurt me anymore.
umm not being hungry for 4 days isn’t normal at all..why even post here? obviously something is wrong with you and you need to seek medical attention.
Don’t not eat because you are trying to lose weight, By doing so when you go to eat again your body stores all the fats it can, causing you to gain more weight because your body was deprived and doesn’t know when it will get food again.
im 20 yrs male 6′ and i havent eaten in 6 days and still dont feel hungry also lost 20 lbs i now weigh 112 lbs is it bad
Try the Brats diet.
Soup and for something to drink anything caffine free, and clear
Ex: Water,sprite,apple juice,poweraid. I know so are not clear but they will keep you hydrated. Also talk to your Dr, it might be an ulcer.
LOL, im on 9 days, going for 20.
I havent been able to hold anything but water down for 5 days. Everytime I try to eat or even smell food i get sick. I have been severely stressed out and depressed for a week and a half since my bf of five years left with his son. I know I will be able to eat if I can get though this but I am wondering about the effect it hasonmybody long term
i havnt ate anything for over 6 days i feal rather weak but i really need to lose the weight lol its really good i lost 1 and a half stone in 6 days that is better than any diet out there. lol
I’m feeling the same way. In almost 55 hours the only thing I’ve eaten is 3 bites of pasta [which made me want to vomit], and today I ate 8 tatortots [and I almost vomited]. Before I ate the pasta I tried to drink Kool-Aid and I threw it all up and dry heaved for a while. The smell and sight of food just makes me feel so sick. I’m 17 and skinny, but I always eat at least 2 times a day, even if it’s only a little bit. I’m not a picky eater though.
Usually my routine is eat a little [a little is like 2 small meals, with snacks in between] for 3 or 4 days, and then all of a sudden for a day or two I eat a lot. But I don’t do this, I always eat. I love food, but now it’s like my body hates it.
I vomited up my Sprite [and sadly my tatortots] earlier after smelling the chicken my dad brought home for dinner. Sprite and water are the only things I’ve been able to keep down since this, whatever you call it, hit me.
What is this??
I have never been a big eater but have just gone through a week of not eating or having any appetite at all, i am cooking for my family but can bearly stand to do it.I tried to eat a small meal and vomited for ten hours…… how is this possible.I drink water and coffee so i always have fluid in me. I can see how this would give you bad thoughts as i had a few myself. also i see my doc every three weeks as i have back and neck problems and am on alot of meds..so my main diet is chemicals that i hate to take but cant walk if i dont. I am so sick of being sick!!!
iv not eaten for 2 weeks. iv sti not lost any fukin weight.
for all you people who think losing weight is by not eating, youve thought wrong. My friend is anorexic, and she stopped eating. her metabolism stopped and shes on the verge of being overwheight. if you wanna lose weight, drink water, eat healthy, exercise daily. its not that hard people.
ThE same thing is happenening with me. My fever was 103.5 one day anr 99.8 the next and i havent ate in four days fridayi had a taco saturday i had a slice of ham sunday i ate half a sandwich and today i ate a 1!!!!! Bite of chicken noodle soup. When i take bites of food i feel sick and i dont feel hungry AT ALL! I also havEnt been drinking. Like one gatorade a day. I cant help it!
You could also be constipated. I know I wouldn’t be hungry, then suddenly I’d have hunger pains. When I ate, about an hour later, I would throw up and I would STILL be hungry.
First of all some of these responses are just plain stupid. Especially the one who hasnt eaten in 9 days. The reason you cant eat now is because you went so long with out eating. I reccommend tomato soup i use to be that way when i was pregnet from the nausea i wouldnt eat and then when i wanted to i couldnt. I would drink it out of a cup and it gives your stomach some consistincy I know how you feel because i go there alot from my anxiety my nerves prohibit me to eat then i get so hungry that i cant. I already talked to my doctor i know what is wrong with me, They are right you do need to talk to a doctor. Oh and that post about the woman who says her son and husband wont let her eat. lol that is the biggest croc i ever heard who would allow themselves to be treated like that come on. This is a place for answers not BS Save the drama for your momma
I havent eatin anything really in over 2 wks now besides maybe a lil ice cream and popcicles, everytime i try and eat i can swallow anything its even hard to swallow ice cream half the time i cant really eat anything soft either, my throat feels like strep thraot times 5 without the pain, im suppost to go see a throat dos but they want alot of money up front cus i dont have insurance an i dont have that kind of money so am i just suppost to die of starvation, does anyone know wat it might be because im so hungry all the time an my bodys really shaky cause i cant eat will it hurt or kill me if i just keep fluids down, like i cant put any kind of food in my body at all
I’ve been sick for 5 days with Strep Throat and 2 days ago I tried eatin a small piece of ham because my tonils where so swollen, and I got really bad stomach pains to the point where my eyes where so watery.. now I’m afraid to eat because of that kind of pain.. what should I do?????
Um lady that’s getting abused talking about your son and husband not letting u eat and setting traps this is not normal so when nobody home go use a phone call 911 get help lady this is crazy! U have the internet so give me ur Nam and address and ill do it for u if u can’t!!! If this is not a game.
If u dont eat or drink anything u would be dead after 2 weeks!
I havent eateb in 7 days now
i throw everything up or it comes out the other way. Ive started to bleed quite a lot as well, its not fun at all.
Im so weak and i have to keep drinking tea or coffee and sugar just to be able to get up.
ive lost a stone and a half and i have to go to hospital if it continues.
Im so hungry but now the thought makes me throw up as well.
I wouldnt do it as a weight loss thing.. you will put it all on and more when you start eating again.
Go see a doctor.
It could be serious.
Good luck x
For the past week I haven’t been hungry at all. I forced myself to eat because I don’t want to end up anorexic again. When I was a dancer this same problem happened and then it happened again when I was in color guard. I don’t know why it’s happening again as I am not currently physically active. The only exercise in get is walking. I don’t know what’s wrong but I’m scared. This is the third time it’s happened and I have no idea why. Is it bad that I force myself to eat? I eat healthy when I force myself to eat but is it bad?
II’ve not ate or drank in 5 days I felt fine, its not an attention thing at all, for some reason I feel sick when I think about having food or drink. This has never happened before and today I woke up with abdominal pain and found my self rushing to the toilet for a number 2. It was black .. is this normal?
NomNom2, the reason ur number 2 is black is because u have not consumed no food or drink. You have to keep ur self hydrayted! Iv been ill for 5 days now, i have ate a little but always brought it back up, after a day of taking pepto-bismol my number 2s have turnt a greeny/blacky colour.
Last time this happen to me the dark stool came from blood. I had another ulcer.
Milk was my best friend w/ real bread not the “off the shelf” stuff. Eventually add real peanut butter for protein.(continuing the antacids as-well, tums…ect. w/ Zantac…ect.) Walgreen’s has a cheap version called WAL-ZAN in 75mg & 150mg.
And a warning to those considering juices, be careful with citrus it’s acidic so look for LOW ACID versions.
Side note about the milk I feel I should mention that I’m from Wisconsin and on a normal day I’ll drink about a half gallon myself (not an exaggeration), sooo your results might be different.
Forgot to mention the water. It’ll Hydrate and dilute you stomach.
A friend taught me if you add a little salt, a bit of sugar and a couple of teaspoons of “Real Lemon”(recommended brand)to a bottle of water. It tricks your body into thinking it’s also food so it’ll send it though your whole system. Nice cleansing, taste kinda like lemon-lime Gateraid, and personally never added to or gave me diarrhea.
But again be careful cause lemons are acidic so this isn’t recommended if you have ulcer like problems.
Smoke weed that will make u eat

**** my self
I have eaten a Lil bit this past weekend stomach s been flipping… I’ve had muscle pains like in the wrist a lot where I couldn’t lift anything not even my phone… I wonder if I’m Ill I’ve been in and out of the hospital for major headaches everyday for the past year and a half… And now I hot all these other problems…. I’m only 17 I grew up to basically watch myself so anything that is wrong with me I try to handle it myself…
I’m going through the same issue and desperate for help. I went to the hospital two days ago for bladder infection pains because it turns out i have cysts in my bladder, while there, all they did was give me a referral to another hospital and morphine,two tylenols and an antibiotic on an empty stomach! Since then I haven’t been able to really eat properly. My stomach has been in so much pain and I’ve been puking lots. Today I’m not in any pain but I feel nauseous, very dizzy, and my vision is kinda on the blurry side, I also feel a headache creeping up. I’m drinking water and currently nibbling on a sandwich but I want to know what the best thing I can eat is? I just want to feel healthy and energized again.
We didnt do any grocery shopping for a couple days so there was no food. I ate a big bowl of oatmeal 2 days ago at 11. When I got home work last night I didn’t feel well so I didn’t eat. The next day I forgot my wary at home and then left for school so I couldn’t eat. Now I’m starving but food makes me dry heave. It’s that time of the month and I’m going through some issues but I need to feel better. What do I do?
I haven’t eaten if 5 weeks I can’t keep anything down and I’m so week been to doctor and been on hospital for days but they can’t do anything they don’t no what it is so hope you get sorted out soon
This is happening to me I’m on my 2nd day without eating I’m goona eat lot before I end up like you guys
This is happening to me but i have a really sharp pain in my stomich and im scared cause im onlu 14 years old
