How to remember to eat??

      I find it a lot easier to drink my calories instead of eating them, unless it's protein bars or something similarly small and dense. I get the little $2 single serving refrigerated smoothie bottles quite often, and when I feel ok enough, I blend up some Huel (total meal replacement mix) with some nut milk and cinnamon and sip on that throughout the day. It really doesn't taste that bad and is impressively calorie dense. I also eat a lot of soup, probably similarly because it's more of a thing to sip on instead of big crunchy bites if that makes any sense. I try to keep protein bars and fruit by or on my desk so I don't have to get up and risk losing momentum to go eat. Having it in my visual field also reminds me I need to eat as well. Good luck!

      Pare it with what you like to do. I like movies not an option to start xyz until I prepped my food. Hack your reward system. Food is fuel for fun. Separate the need to eat from the need to cook. Basic snacks keep me alive. Alarms. Plan to eat with social event my social life is social media stuff on bad pain days

      I dont do it every day but when I am more dysfunctional than average I like to make a short list of what I will be eating that day and around what times i should be eating. Alarms are very helpful but for me the second step is deciding what and how so both work well when implemented together. If you already know what then when it comes time youll be hopefully more prepared to switch tasks instead of freezing and forgetting. Shit I need to be doing that again.

      i set alarms on my phone, and leave sticky notes around my desk area with reminders of things (take meds, eat food, etc)

      I have three separate pill organizer thingys, one for breakfast time, one for midday/lunch, and one for dinner! I used to set alarms to take my medications. Now I am conditioned to remembering to eat when I take them.

      We are a system and the only way we remember to eat is setting alarms on our phone at least 3 times a day breakfast lunch and dinner
