Loss of appetite

This past week I' ve totally lost my appetite,lost 5 kg. This may be Due to stress. But the stress is over now but I still don' t have an appetite. Any advise to regain my desire for food again. I have no intention of losing weight, I' m already thin! Just want to gain weight again!

Dear Richie
You and the previous Reader are exhibiting totally opposite reactions to stress. In your case, the excess stress has made you lose your appetite. In such a case, the use of vitamin B complex supplements can help to stimulate the appetite again. Although the stress is now over, your body is still reacting to its effects, so it may help for your too the work through this with a clinical psychologist. Otherwise click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles on how to gain some weight. If you find that you appetite does not improve and you continue losing weight, Please have a medical checkup just to make sure that there is no underlying physical cause for your loss of appetite and weightloss.
Hope you can turn this problem around.
Best regards
