View Full Version : Food intake

January 24th, 2016, 02:42 PM
I noticed that I'm not able to eat as much as I probably should (male,18). I eat about 2 times a day because I don't have much of an appetite.
When I do eat, I personally think it seems enough and I get the feeling of being full, but I realize that my portions are like a snack or something to others, because people keep asking me if that's all I'm eating (which is uncomfortable at times), while they eat double of what I eat and complain that they need more.
So is this just me having a low metabolism (because I've actually gained some weight recently), or is it an issue?

I guess, if you doesn't feel weak or don't get tired quickly during any activity, there's nothing abnormal with your eating habits.

Are you a small guy? Thin? Short?
It might be you just simply don't need as much energy to run your metabolism as other people your age.
It can also be a sign of other things however, so if you've been depressed or ill lately this could be why, also look out for any other underlying symptoms. :)

You sound perfectly normal to me though so just enjoy saving money on food hehe
