Every time I eat, I loose my appetite? Last nite, the wife bar-b-qued some pork chops, along with baked potatoes, green salad on the side......ate four of those "wow" pork chops with apple sauce, three fairly large baked potaoes, with butter,[not margerine], and several [?] helpings of green salad.....now, for a growing boy, does this seem like a meager portion? does the fact that my stomach pushes me away from the table, have anything to do with the problem? Should I have possibly shied away from desert?? Are not strawberrys and ice cream part of a regular weight loss program? Now, is it polite, after eating, to suggest that one is not hungry? Realy evokes concern of how many others are suffering from this problem, maybe a club, like, "Food Eaters Today", would be appropriate. Such a quandry.......have a goodr, R.E.L.

All this rminds me of my neighbor, Renfroe Ackerman who was captured by the Japs in WWII. He spent 3 years working as a slave laborer in the coal mines in Japan. All he got to eat was moldy rice that he said tasted like wall paper paste. He says his whole system was screwed up by it, because all he can eat now is wall paper paste, root beer floats and figs. He knows it's bad for him but he says he can't keep any thing else down. And if that isn't bad enough his wife bought a Honda car last year!

Yeah, i probly could come over for pork chops one night and observe. I went to a few doctors over the years so know pretty much what they'd say... i expect it's a Spring version of some rare "Fork in Mouth" ailment - keep us informed. :)

I grew up on the farm so always excused my waistline on a "farmers appetite" - well, one day i stopped by in time to help cousin Harold throw a few bales when Glenda hollered "Lunchtime!" So Harold asked what we're having and she said chicken. Here she opened the oven and plunked a whole chicken on each plate! I thought omigod but dug in pretty good, was still trying to keep from leaving too big a mess when i glanced over and Harold's already having seconds! That's when i decided it was time to find a new excuse .......:)

Hi, DC, Mark, that would be most appropriate, that you should observe, with fork in hand, though not being touted as a spectator sport, we could surely cercumvent that issue and use "observation" as the motive of presence. I feel confident, that in due course, [after course], we could cetainly come to some form of aggreement on what the cause might be, and if no suitable definition has been reached, we would have no recourse, [after course], then to repeat the whole process. Seems only fair and fitting to me!

One observation I have made; a bulbous midsection, is indeed, an inhancement, when reclineing, to be used as a repository for a glass of the finnest, as a finnishing touch to a grand session of indulgence! have a gooder,R.E.L.

I suffer from the other type of eating disorder. Lack of appatiet to start with?? I find I am allways being told dinners ready and I am not hungry. It seems I find eating is a hassle to do? I go sometimes 12 hours and then remember I need to eat and then just pig out! I can put some food down then twice as much as I realy needed till the old belly pushes out. Now at night just befor bed I sometimes hit the candy department and eat 2 or 3 candy bars then a big cup of coffie and go to sleep? I do have strange eating disorders. Mark H.

I'm with you Mark. I eat one meal a day which is supper and even then I'm not always hungry. Chocolatew goes great with coffee, and beer as well.

Boy right now food dose not sound good but got to eat. Just loaded & unloaded and stacked 4 ton of hay and it is hot out. Talk about being burnt out!! Hay chaff all down your sweaty neck! Right now a shower would be nice and a cold beer if I still drank. Mark H.

Right on, Mark, a tall cold one of Canada's finnest just hits the spot when hot and dusty, like the song says, "I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow......". but only one. I would certainly quit, even my once-in-a-while, beer, but here is why; a fellow decided he would reform his ways; the first week he cut out alcohol, the secound week, he cut out smoking, the third week, he cut out women, the fourth week, he cut out paper dolls.....so there you have it....I must retain some vestige of a wayward life so I, too, do not "cut out paper dolls"! Have a gooder, R.E.L.

I have found that those non-alcohalic beers sure do taste good going down!! Becks have a real good hopps taste to them much better than a Coke dose. When the little drops of water bead up on the outside of the bottle and you turn it up and it just flows into your stomach with a little burp to finish it off with. Now that is a way to quench your thurst on a hot day!!! Mark H.
