Signs of eating too little
Yes, its possible to eat little and not be hungry.
Some "brief" signs:
1. Low energy (low blood sugar), feeling of tiredness, sleepy (sleeplessness), etc
Long periods of eating dysfunctions, one's metabolism can down shift to compensate (dependent), and in severe cases, will not "eventually" compensate. And, dependent on personal particulars, one's body is having a "party" having itself for dinner.
2. Feeling of lethargy
4. Impacts mood, goal passion, and attitude.
5. Mental alertness
6. Headaches (also could be from too low of carbs)
7. Nervousness, shaky, slight tremors.
8. General day to day "feeling" swings (can impact one's psychology)
9. Weakened overall bodily strength and recovery
And, many other signs, dependent upon the serverity of food (nutrition) deprivation particular to the person.
Though the ones I listed can have a severe impact on an individual, these are mild to cases in the "extreme" side of the equation.

I've read a lot of your posts, and am honored to have your attention.
I'll never eat so little that i get noticeable low energy. Normally I have no concern whether or not i eat enough, but yesterday i was a little unsure, mainly because i had just gone for a ride and worked out, and didn't eat anything more than an apple, and drink a few glasses of water.Normally i try to follow a work out with a protein rich meal.
I really feel like I'm posting this in the wrong forum, motivation wise, because my focus isn't necessarily to lose weight (although to achieve my goal, i will lose weight), it is to get my figure the way i want it to. I don't even own a bathroom scale.
The last week i have really been focusing quite hard on eating very well and working out, and i can just lift up my shirt and look down and see results, when ever i feel like it, but more importantly i feel much stronger and faster. I am cruising on a huge motivational wave right now, and I'm going to make it last for ever.
oops, long post.

In comparison, an infant child eats more than that. Additionally, the jews in the concentration camps in their serverely tarnished environment received more nutrition than what you are allowing yourself. They had no choice, you do.
There is a forum member, named Spicy Pumkin that has eating problems as well. I dont know if your problem is simular to hers, but it is possible that between the two of you, something good could happen in exchanging information.
Her log is here:
Just a little Spicy
Review her log, and if you have questions ask them. I am sure she would try to assist you in some fashion.
What specifically IS your goal?
What available equipment do you have available to exercise with?

As far as goals go, I want to be fit enough to where ab and other muscles are clearly visible and defined, but my main focus on this voyage is over all health
and strength. (how would that turn out if all i ate on one day was an apple and water!)
I'm 6'2, not sure about my weight. Don't really care much either to be honest.
I love my wide frame, i have very bold shoulders and almost look semi-buffed without having worked out, due to bone structure. So i figure if i can just melt some of the fat off and pack on some more muscle, I'll be styling.
My current available equipment in my own house right now is:
An adjustable bench, which i do sit ups and lift weights from
two one-hand weights
a single larger bar weight. - Both these types of weights are part of a set, which have more wheel/disc weights you can add on.
and a floor mat.
I Never use the treadmill, as my ceiling is too low and i bump my head on the roof when running indoors, and the bike i have used a little but not that much.
I prefer running/biking outside, now that the weather is nice. I'll put the two to better use when the winter and crap weather starts coming.

Yes, Chill is amazing. We're lucky to have him here.
Not all effects are short term either. You don't want to risk your hearing going or hair fallilng out, do you? See a nturitionist and get a solid plan.
Just keep a journal of the things you eat for a week or two, count the calories and you will know whether you eat enough or not.
