TV dinners are good. Less than 10 minutes to prepare. No cleanup. More nutritious than candy.

Also try soup (I particularly like Lentil soup cold, straight out of the can - pretty healthy).

Frozen ravioli with jarred sauce.

Peanut butter and Jelly.

Those short carrots that come ready to eat, apples, bananas.

Real meats from the deli (Turkey, ham, roast beef) - eat them plain by hand.

You WILL feel better if you do eat. Try to come up with a default menu: Breakfast - apple. Lunch - PB&J. Dinner - TV dinner. Then when you aren't inspired you may at least get something into your body.

Paper plates are fair (especially if you don't have a dishwasher) - I did them for 9 months.

It is tempting to hope that you'll just lose weight, but it isn't good for you, and won't help your depression. I have completely given up on my weight - I figure it is more important for me to give my body what it needs to survive.

It does get better. Or you learn to cope with it better.

I found showering and laundry and vacuuming to be the same way. You can try to make a chart of these "activities of daily living" (ADLs) and check off when you do eat a (reasonable) meal, or shower or vacuum. Sometimes a chart can help motivation and you can see that you are trying. But if it doesn't help, and the chart seems like more (!?) work, then skip it.

Good luck.
