    when you really don't want to eat ?
    the loss of feeling hungry is a bit of a blessing as usually i stuff my face which
    got me into this state as it is,but now it's depleating,the thought of food is a bit of a turn off.
    what do you all do ?

    I stir fry chicken prawns and mushrooms with butter, chilli flakes and garlic. I can always eat that lol. But tbh it's never that I've lost my apetite, more that I can't be bothered with cooking and clearing it up. My kitchen is in permanent need of a good scrub even when I've spent half of Sunday doing it. Atkins is very messy as I cook virtually everything from scratch. Failing that a bag of Hellishly Hot pork crunch sees me right :D

    Lisa is right, spices are a good way to stimulate the appetite. Just smelling garlic cooking often makes me hungry.

    I really had to force myself to eat my tea last night too hun, I made my first mim and it filled me so much that when it came to tea time I didn't want anything. I had one chicken breast stuffed with cheese garlic & herbs. I generally don't like to eat after 7pm so ate it as I knew come 8, 9 o'clock I would be hungry!

    feel i have to too jim,otherwise i seem to argue with myself,saying that i shouldn't eat if not hungry !
    i guess thats something ingrained in us that people are always telling us"well don't eat if your not hungry"
    so i think i'll go with it.:)

    I know, but I always felt I ate a lot on Atkins, still do come to that, so if I'm not hungry it's no big deal really
