Hey, I just wanted to mention that one definition of "anorexia" is "loss of appetite." It is unhealthy not to eat--I'd suggest you put yourself on an eating schedule, as others have suggested, and "make" yourself eat at the scheduled times. It doesn't have to be a big meal--just 200 to 300 cals. Say, every 2 to 3 hours.

And yes, under 1200 cals for an extended period is not recommended except under a doctor's supervision, which it looks like you don't have. The reason is that you can't get sufficient nutrition at under that level.

Good luck!

Jay
