    My appetite has crashed lately. I'm not sick or anything so I'm not sure why. Are there any good ways to stimulate it (besides weed)? Will stimulants like caffeine do the trick?

    I'm thinking I should just do HIIT, but I need to manage it such that I'll get hungry enough to eat more calories than I burn doing it.

    I eat crap like cookies or something, and about an hour later I am hungry again. It is not healthy, so take that for whatever.

    I think any normal "stimulate" would do the exact opposite.

    I really don't know. I was sick as hell yesterday and didn't even feel like eating. I still managed 2500 cals so really I guess I've just gotten used to eating when I'm not hungry.


    If you truly are eating clean you should be getting hungry 2-3 hours after eating anyway. A can of tuna with rice or a glass or orange juice does not fill me up at all, so 2 hours later I'm ready to eat again.

    I don't know if this works for you guys but the best way to stimulate my appetite was just eat. For about a week I was force feeding myself but after that week I could eat anything. And now... years after, fuck it put a plate in front of me and its gone.

    Lettuce expands the stomach therefore allowing you to eat more food without feeling like your going to explode.
