Im not sure whether it's my anxiety or depression causing my lack of appetite but I've lost a bunch of weight and never have an appetite. Does anybody else have this problem and if so what helps you? Seriously need all the help

I lose my appetite when I am depressed. Sometimes forcing myself to eat what I need eventually gets my appetite back, and sometimes it takes working myself out of depression, even if only slightly. When I'm not eating due to being depressed, I start by counting calories and making myself take in a healthy amount, and by doing things that I usually like to do. Even though I have lost interest in hobbies, etc. (while depressed) sometimes doing the things that I know I usually like to do takes my mind off of everything else, and sooner or later I start to enjoy doing them again. It kind of starts a snowball effect where one good thing leads to another, and before I know I am in a better state of mind and eating right again (among other things). Hopefully this helps!!

I also have an eating problem. My appetite is back lately, but I only eat what I like and when I am hungry. It helps if you eat when you are having an appetite and with time, the appetite comes back. I also don't go out from the house without eating. Hope this helps!
