Sara...What is preventing you

Sara...What is preventing you from eating? Is it the emotional stress you are feeling? Your rapid and extreme weight loss could be dangerous for your health. You are correct that when you have stopped eating for a time, your gastrointestinal system may not work as efficiently when you begin to eat again. It may take some time eating more mild and soft foods to get your digestion back on track. The more important issue is that you see a doctor right away to determine if there is a physical/biological reason that you have not been able to eat. It is very important that you do this now. Feel free to write and let us know what you find out. Take care...Jan
