* Astrophysicist Jacob Buckman in ''[[Literature/CoDominium The Mote in God's Eye]]''. He meets Horace Bury in a ship's corridor. Horace wonders privately what an autopsy at that moment on Buckman would show as cause of death... exhaustion or malnutrition?

* In one ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'', an [[https://www.xkcd.com/1708/ argument]] over the "low-grade dehydration" thing and how much water you should drink to avoid it results in Megan deciding to read every single study on the subject to determine if it's even real, during which she ironically forgets to eat or drink anything at all.

The AbsentMindedProfessor may exhibit this trope, and it is a common component of TheMadnessPlace. It may also be a temporary effect of JustOneMoreLevel.

JustOneMoreLevel. Sometimes a result of HumanityEnsues, when before their transformation, they were a species that needed less food than a human being, or none at all.

* Literature/HarryPotter tends to do this during meal time at Hogwarts as a result of anxiety and chaotic thoughts. His history of being starved by the Dursleys probably contributes.

This is TruthInTelevision, as {{workaholic}}s and others will become so engaged in something that they ''do'' forget to eat. UsefulNotes/IsaacNewton was famous for being so obsessive-compulsive about his work that he would work hours and hours while neglecting to bathe or eat. Because this is common among obsessed gamers, AntiPoopSocking had to be put in place in many games. Science further backs this up, as the nervous system has the digestive system slow and close up if a person is under stress. Nobody wants to stop for a bathroom break or snack when being chased by a {{bear|sAreBadNews}}.

* Amphetamines have a hunger-suppressing effect, causing users to either not realize how hungry they are or feel outright repulsed by the thought of food while under its influence. Speed users are stereotypically depicted as wire-thin due to a combination of not eating too much and above-average physical exertion they are capable of.

Speed users are stereotypically depicted as wire-thin due to a combination of not eating too much and above-average physical exertion they are capable of. This also ties into the above point about ADHD medications causing this effect, as some of the more common ones, particularly Adderall, fall under the Amphetamine category.
