Recovering but always thinking about food always hungry - June 30th 2016, 11:44 AM

Hi I always think about my next meal it's like my brain just wants to eat and eat all the time has anyone else noticed this? How do you cope with it it's really annoying it's as its worst when I'm not doing much if I'm busy I don't worry as much about it. Any advice would be helpful! I try to eat at stable times but as soon as I have eaten breakfast my brain is like "lunch lunch lunch"" and it's really annoying.

I have a few suggestions. One, you may not be getting enough nutrients from your meals. I'd make sure each meal has enough protein and fat, as those two keep you satisfied for longer. If you don't know how much you need, I'd consider seeing a dietician about it and getting an idea of how your breakdown should be for your body. Second, you may not be getting enough calories. One way to do that is to add some snacks between your meals. Perhaps you can have an additional yogurt or maybe pretzels with peanut butter. Once again, I'd speak to somebody to see your caloric needs.

Remember, it's natural to be hungry and want to eat. Our bodies live on food, it's our energy source. Don't feel bad about giving your body what it needs. Good luck!
