what do u mean a break from lifting and eating? i always goto the gym, and my body always needs food to survive!
You are most likely overtrained and your body doesn't want to keep pounding the food and the weight. Take a week or two off from lifting and start eating things that sound like they taste better. Eat an egg sandwich or a hamburger or something. Still healthy but not a bodybuilder diet. It will give your mind and body a break and you'll be ready to hit it harder when you come back.
this is what I was saying also. find something else for a short time, then get back at it
Exactly. Find something else to take up your time and give yourself a break man. You can't go 100% nonstop all the time. I was having trouble shoveling the food down and was getting tired of it so I took a week off and ate whatever I felt like that was still healthy. I had a lot of egg 'n toasts.. lol
