Not feeling like eating
I am 23 yrs 44 kg weight and 5.6 height. I always used to think of eating more and put on weight but I couldn't eat properly. If I eat well one day other day I won't. Food at hostel wasn't good. Now I'm staying at home but I can't take food properly. Is this a kind of psychological problem. should I see a doctor.

Your Weight should be around 60kg for your height. It means your are grossly underweight. Consult an endocrinologist for any harmonal cause of underweight. Once he rules out any known treatable cause, then consult a psychiatrist for your eating disorder or underweight issues.
