I always forget to eat, even outside of cons. I am such a forgetful person about everything except whatever is #1 in my mind at the time, so it's not uncommon for me to go a day without eating even if I'm just lounging around the house that day. It's even worse at cons when I'm focused on going to events or when I'm working at a booth in the artist alley. I used to lose 3-6 pounds every time I went to a con, and I'm already kind of thin for my height. I had a bad scare at Comic Con a few years ago when I actually collapsed. Since then, my fiance has gotten really good about shoving food at me, so I usually get a meal most days when I'm at a con and I don't have any trouble with running out of energy due to lack of food. Now I don't lose more than a pound when I go to a con.
