Can one use feeding tube to get fed at night for compensating the calories ?

I have not been eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. I am 20 years old. I have been just eating granola bar and water. I work 2 jobs and I have no days off. I was thinking about getting a feeding tube and get fed at night for most of My calories then the rest of My calorie I can eat something. Is it a good idea or not or what do i need to do.

Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum. it is absurd to say no time to can eat while working also. in 24 hours if you eat 3 times it will take less than 30 minutes. one has to consume balanced diet for good health. if you have enough money you can go for tube feeding of balanced diet. best of luck.
