I've struggled with eating for much of my life. The thing is, we do have to be very, very careful if we have low functioning adrenals - that's not the time to be fasting, even for half a day. The adrenals need the nutrition.
For me, it has had to do with a complete lack of appetite (seriously - zero hunger pains ever), possibly stemming from the following: low stomach acid, eating foods I'm allergic to (and didn't know it - soy and MSG), intestinal cramping, slow motility and lack of enzymes in the small intestine - to name a few things that I have figured out.
I do have times still where I just can't force food down my throat one more time
- I reached that point just last night. This morning was a real struggle to get food down as well - but I did manage to do it. We'll see how I do tonight. LOL.
Also, remember, if we are fasting, we are not giving our bodies the nutrients it needs to heal - and while short fasts may be helpful here and there, frequent or daily fasts are not usually helpful for anyone fighting infections.
