Yes, I know the feeling, and I haven't even lost weight. I eat a really regimened diet that is easy to prepare and supplement with vitamins when I can tolerate it. Some of the drinks have a lot of sugar or taste bad when you already dont feel like eating. I get a big box of baby salad greens washed and all and all I have to do is throw them in a bowl. Also I get romaine lettuce or leaf lettuce and eat that sometimes out of the box. If my belly can deal, I eat the baby carrots, all I have to do is grab the bag. I use a stainless steel pressure cooker to cook vegetables, so that is easy, just put them in with a little water and cook for a minute. Lately, I crave potatoes and I have been nuking baked potatoes once in a while. I don't go cheap on lunch meat, get it thick sliced and break it up on my salad or make a sandwich if Iam that energetic. I can always just eat it if I'm really out of sorts. But I get good turkey or roast beef or chicken or something. Fish and chicken can be kinda easy to cook too. Then there's fruit. I eat the same things alot due to nausea and other problems and eat plain food. Taking vitamins can help with the energy too. Oh, probiotic yogurt and cottage cheese, if you can, can help get you through. we do a lot of tuna fish and egg salad and hard boiled eggs.
I try to eat three times a day, sometimes barely eat one. I haven't lost any weight though. I drink a lot of water/ green tea, fresh orange juice and v8 splash. I try to avoid tv dinners and soup due to sodum and poor vitamins and they aren't as healthy,but sometimes chef boyardee cooks for me.
