When questioned on the subject by reporters ahead of Saturday's trip to Chelsea, he responded sarcastically: "No, no, I've given up this year.
"I've decided to bin it off. I signed my three-year deal and thought I'd just leave it this year, sit back and have a few cans and a few cigarettes and chill with the kids.
"It is a ridiculous question. No I haven't (lost my hunger). Why wouldn't you have it?"
Holt, though, admitted some frustration about being in and out of Chris Hughton's Norwich side so far this season.
He added: "You have just got to get on with it and do whatever the manager wants you to do, and try to do your best for the team and the club."
