You`re beginning to worry me! I notice, from message 14, that you are 70 years old - so losing 6 pounds in a week is not healthy, or MAY NOT be healthy at your age. You say you`ve not felt very well - how long have you felt unwell?
I could tell you all the accepted wisdom - as we age we need to eat less or small meals 4/5 or 5/6 times a day are better than 2/3. However, I`m not going to - I would suggest that you speak with your Doctor (in the UK we call them a GP or General Practioner) and tell him/her that you have lost 6 pounds in a week and appear to have lost your appetite. Please, contact your doctor and have a chat with him/her.
All the best,
