"mitunter" is not current German, more like 19th century. "Manchmal habe ich keinen Hunger." is a better sentence that would not irritate a native speaker.

A reasonably literate native speaker probably would not discuss their intermittent hunger as "now and then"? I like rfo's translation "Manchmal ..."

"I am sometimes not hungry" was accepted as well.

Are you sure this is the correct translation? "Now and then, I am not hungry."?

I used : "Occasionally I am not hungry." I guess they basically the same...

Yes, I said "I am occasionally not hungry" which is certainly something we might say.
