I see this post was awhile ago, I hope your doing better. Im also losing weight to a degree that is scaring me. Ive always been small framed, Im 28, 5'4" 102lbs right now. At 115lbs it looked almost right. But after I got clean ( I was a methadone addict for many years ), I started losing weight slowly and never could regain it. I asked my doctor about it, they did a physical, checked for thyroid abnormalities, all came up fine. Strangely better than fine, everything was in its right place ( which I didnt expect ) . So my dr, just told me I need to eat more protein. I eat those..protein bars and try to grab high calorie food, but Im just not hungry. Its like you said, I forget that I need food until I feel my stomach cramp up from lack of it. If anyone knows of a way to stimulate my appetite, do let me know..View Thread
