Bipolar patients going through manic periods also tend to skip meals for long periods at a time but is unlike the loss of appetite they experience when depressed. The high energy experienced by manic patients make them feel that they don’t need food to function. Their restlessness and constant activity prevents them from sitting at the table long enough to get food down their stomachs. Unfortunately, this takes a toll on their bodies which then crash and become too weak to function due to the lack of food to fuel it. When this happens, patients become frustrated and sad, which can then trigger a depressive state.
