The obvious solution is to force yourself to eat in the day and put something in your system for your body to use. Its a bad habit obviously and you need to perhaps ask yourself why you don't want to eat in the day. You have posted in the Depression Forum so I assume you suspect this is the cause. Have you been to a doctor to check this behaviour out? I don't think doctors are the answer to everything but in this case it might be an idea.

CAn you plan a small meal plan for the day even if its just some toast initially? If we don't eat then it becomes a bad habit and our bodies adjust so we don't feel hungry for long periods.
