Compared to the roughly 2,000 calories she needs a day, thats still not too bad.

In all fairness, I hadn't eaten anything all day.

That's not healthy.  For weight loss, it would be better to eat more calories as a 'not-too-often' thing than to go without eating for long stretches.  Going longer than 6-8 hours without eating - particularly if you exercise - sends your body into "starvation" mode and your body holds even tighter to the fat it has already stored.

That's not to mention that not eating for long periods interferes with brain function (I know this far too well), but with all metabolic processes.

It's not a common thing that I do, Lucas.

My random chime in: it is something I do, I think. I've never been much of a big eater throughout my life ("eats like a bird" is being generous most of the time), and tend to have my first meal of the day (usually not a lot) in the early afternoon. I just never really feel all that hungry, right up until the moment when I do. Most of the time I don't feel like it's an issue, but as time goes by and I get more involved in a more physical line of work, I do get the feeling that it's time to up that calorie intake and get some more energy/muscle/whathaveyou going. And not just because I'm one of those seemingly perpetual 6'1"/145lbs. guys either.

I do that thing of not eating till the afternoon, too. If I get up at 8, I'm just not hungry until that point. If I catch myself not being hungry for long periods of time, I'll make myself eat something, because I don't want that to be a habit.

People need to eat within one hour of waking, or else their body goes into starvation mode and holds on to fat and burns muscle instead (if the person exercises).  That first meal of the day should primarily be protein.  Cereal/grains (anything resulting in a high glycemic load) sets one up for cyclic hunger which can lead to binge eating in some people.

Not eating for long stretches (such as from sometime before one goes to bed until a few hours after waking) causes difficulty thinking clearly and can result in anxiety or mood difficulties if one's brain is predisposed to them (because the brain is attempting to 'run on fumes').  The changes in the brain's neurotransmitters that this causes can take a long time to restabilize afterwards (i.e. they don't just go away the next time one eats).  If not eating right away on waking is a pattern, then it can take a couple weeks for the brain to stabilize if one eats regularly in the morning every one of those (14) days.  [Just like every other major neurotransmitter change: it takes a minimum of two weeks for stability to start to show in the brain again.  It can take longer before all the 'downstream' neurotransmitters to stabilize from such a pattern.]

I try to eat breakfast in the morning but sometimes I can't even bring myself to swallow because I'm just not hungry in the morning. Maybe I should try a protein shake or something because I'm always thirsty in the morning.

How do people not realize that showing overt interest in someone might make them uncomfortable? I'm watching a stream and this guy KEEPS pelting me with random questions that have nothing to do with ANYTHING. Then when someone makes a joke about it, he gets extremely defensive, saying that he was just "being friendly". Picking one person out of a crowd of 600 people and asking them a million and one questions is not being friendly. It's being creepy.

Just saw a not on one of the bulletin boards here, someone lost a phone and there is a number to call for "an award".

I wonder what kind of award?  Trophy?  Gold star?

Unless it's a Slammy Award for Best Bow Tie, I'm not going to look for anyone's phone.
