The Question Club
I have a question for you. I would look this up in a medical journal, etc. Just don't know what to look under. My sister's friend in college, claims he never eats. He says he goes days without eating any food. At most he will drink water. One of his friends has spent a few nights in a row at his place and saw that he really doesn't eat. He might eat something every 4-5 days and when he does eat, it's very small amounts. A bit of fries here and there.
Is this possible? He doesn't look anoerexic (I think I spelt that all wrong!). He looks healthy. He plays all kinds of sports and is never tired. He claims that's cause he is not wasting energy on digesting food! he he... And my sis noticed that when he does eat, his whole body shakes.
I know some people are very picky with food. Maybe he doesn't eat outside but eats a little at home. Sis claims he doesn't like his mom's cooking either. I don't know. I am a bit sceptical. I am thinking it's some medical issue he has or a psychological one. Where he thinks eating is a sign of weakness of sorts and he is trying to come across as the strong one. I don't know how to explain it. I met him for the first time last night over dinner. We stuffed ourselves silly but he had one glass of water through the whole thing.
Can someone have such low metabolism that it's possible?
Maybe I just enjoy too much of food to believe such things! he he..
Any ideas of what it could be?
