I’m experiencing a period of regression and eating is becoming super difficult. I don’t get hungry and everything is super unappealing, even ice cream and stuff! Sometimes sensory issues will be so strong that I’ll just spit out the first bite :,( any tips or similar experiences?

    You might have already tried it but I tend to go back to old same foods, like childhood stuff. Really simple things with one consistent texture and flavor. Other then that I know other autistics will take suppliments that will give you all the stuff your diet might be missing and that could be a good thing to investigate

    Supplements, like Starry said! When it's hard to eat, I turn to liquids, since those are easier and quicker to consume. Nutrition shakes (like Ensure), soup/broth, etc. When my sensory issues are really bad I have some more bland food that I can always return to, like rice with scrambled eggs, or ramen without the flavor packet. I hope you feel better soon ❤️ I know how hard sensory issues can make things
