And I can't find anything online that might give me some answers. Anyone ever had this happen to them?

Sounds like a dream to me.

From what I've read on here, it seems like you are more happier in your personal life, so perhaps that is factoring into things for you. Some people lose their appetite when they feel happier or feel feelings of "love." Your brain could be producing more dopamine and norepinephrine.

I don't know.

Same here. I'm really depressed right now, but even when I wasn't, I still had no appetite. In fact I felt full, like I couldn't take another bite of food.
I wouldn't mind this so much, if I was normal weight, but I am severely underweight.

I experience this as well. In fact my physical manifestations of my mood when I'm ecstatic are strikingly similar to those when I'm depressed (inability to concentrate, no appetite, difficulty sleeping). I'm at my most 'normal' when I'm merely content with life. Or indifferent to it.

Perhaps it's mood swings and you're riding the high, Jesuszilla?

Thanks. I will see if I can find anything on it as I did used to comfort eat.

Could be. But my mood has been pretty consistent lately.

Are you on a low carb/high fat diet (ex. Atkins)? The fat on these diets is high which lowers your appetite because you'll be more satiated.
