Lost every interest in food?

I am a good chef, I have worked as a chef, cooking was one of my hobbies, but after my recent depression I have lost all interest in food. Strange. I force myself to eat healthy, but most of my calories come from alcohol free beer (and a little alcohol).

I’m missing the joy of eating a good meal.

Interest waxes and wanes like the moon and thus it is set to return again, don’t worry. :slight_smile:

Before schizophrenia I was a chef and had pride doing it. But now I don’t have any interest in making food… sad to say. I might work in the kitchen in the future to make ends meet, but I want to go back to school and switch line of work… I want to get out of the food industry and earn better wage

Maybe get on some antidepressants, im on escitalopram, it helps boost my mood. You dont want to have a drinking problem and depression problem, drinking doesn’t solve anything just makes it worse.

Here in the house there is always the same kinds of food in the evening. Bread and cold cuts are always the same too. And if I go out to get something to eat in a restaurant, I always visit the same and buy the same food there, with few variety.
