Eating comes natural to all of us and savoring the taste is part of the enjoyment of eating.
I have a 16 year old brother who refuses to eat.
I am starting to become concerned for his health.
It started when he was around 2 and would only eat grits.
He has never had bacon, or sausage.
He was never forced to eat vegetables or fruit.
He has never tasted apples, oranges, grapes, or bananas.
He has never had peas, broccoli, carrots, or green beans.
The thing he will eat is processed chicken burgers.
He refuses the foods his mom prepares and she is an excellent cook.
He has never had spaghetti, or anything from McDonalds.
There has to be something wrong.
I have tried to speak to his parents about it but they are tired of trying to get him to eat.
I have never seen or heard of this before.
I’m looking to see if anyone has ever had a child who refused all types of food.
Something is not right.
He is not over or underweight
When trying to get him to eat other foods, he experiences high anxiety attacks and becomes violent.
When we go out to restaurants he never eats. He just watches everyone else.
He never appears or complains of being hungry.
He has never eaten candy, cookies, or even cake.
3 days out of the week he goes without eating.
A 16 year old boy who doesn’t eat?
I have researched and tried to look for a solution but this is the first I’ve never experienced this before.
I’m worried about my brother’s health and I know he cannot live the rest of his life like this.
The doctor’s tell his mom that he is growing normally and his checkups go fine.
How can he survive on chicken burgers and grits?
Whenever I seek advice people laugh and think it’s funny or think it’s an over exaggeration.
There is nothing funny about a boy who doesn’t eat
I wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t happening right in front of my face.
