For almost the past 6 months, I've been eating about once or twice a day. I have coffee for breakfast, a snack (maybe some chips) at around 3PM, a snack at around 8PM (maybe some popcorn chicken or fish balls), and a meal (usually rice and beef/chicken) at around midnight. I'm not incapable of eating more though, and I can down four double-doubles in a sitting without adverse effects. While I sometimes feel hungry, it doesn't physically hurt to not eat like it used to when I was younger. I've gone up to two days without eating, and I wasn't even hungry. I had to force myself to eat after that. My weight's been stable too, despite all this. Despite doing heavy lifts in the gym, my weight's been stable at 135.
However, I've been suffering from fatigue. I have to consume larger amounts of coffee/caffeine just to feel normal. When I don't I get headaches and/or a feeling like I'm walking in a fog. It's hard for me to focus, and I don't remember if it's always been that way. I usually get 5-7 hours of sleep a night.
Do I have an eating disorder or is it just caffeine tolerance? I can't focus and I always feel tired. Even when I get more sleep (up to 8-10 hours) I still feel just as bad as I did when I got less sleep. I don't know if it's worth calling my doctor about, as I don't think I have any actual physical symptoms.
