Hungry ALL the time - August 31st 2011, 05:39 AM

okay so i've never really had a steady eating pattern i did for a while i'd eat six small meals a day but as summer came around i stopped eating propper meals and starting eating more or less just when im hungry until im full. I find that during the day i dont eat much but then at night i'm REALLY hungry and can eat ALL the or some days im hungry ALL the time and can eat anything and everything, i have been on the pill for 2 weeks ish now and heard that it can increase your apetite does this have thing to do with it or is it normal and because im a going teenager? is it potentially bad for my health?

How much you can take, and keep moving forward.

Have you noticed your hunger increasing after starting the pill, or was it like this before?
It sounds like it could be a side effect, but it can also be from hormones. I know a lot of people eat when they're bored or have nothing better to do, so maybe that could be the cause?

It's not a very nice subject to discuss, but have you been checked for worms?

No, I don't see how I could have worms...wouldn't I be losing a ton of weight very quickly and feeling exhausted despite how much i eat?

Yeah, you would.

I just wanted to check that you didn't have any symptoms. Glad to hear that you don't.

Perhaps you're having a sudden "growth spurt" and your body therefore requires more food? It can happen.

Or as you said at the start, it could be the Pill that is increasing your appetite.

If you are seriously worried, or start to gain an unhealthy amount of weight, you should speak to your doctor.

Re: Hungry ALL the time - September 8th 2011, 02:05 AM

It could be the things you are eating. Depending on what you eat it can leave you very full after a decent meal or it could leave you hungry despite gorging out all day.

Less sugar and more wholegrains can help.
Eat whole fruit instead of fruit juices or other snacks. Eating a whole fruit is harder on your body, which is actually good. It causes your body to work so your insulin doesn't sky rocket, which can cause you to feel hungry.
Also, eating more protein (salmon, red meat, chicken) can make you feel fuller.
Along with low sugar content, don't use low-fat products. They are generally high in sugar which just makes your body spaz and you feel hungry. The only thing that is okay to have low-fat in is Dairy products.

I hope this helps. And this is actually all very healthy to lose weight or maintain your weight.
You can gain weight on these guidelines too. Just depends on many factors.

So, summary: MUCH less sugar content, more protein, no low-fat foods.

thanks. for my diet since i am into kick boxing and hopefully mma i need to eat like a fighter so knowing what to eat isn't the problem i need to eat things high in protein. I'm lactose in tolerant. i dont eat much fruit except on days that will be busy or before/after work outs. im not supposed to have carbs (ie rice, pasta, etc) except maybe once or twice a week....basically this is what i TRY to eat like but not at normal meal times mostly i dont even much during the day but ALOT at night. but yesterday i was able to weigh myself and i actually LOST XXX. im hoping this keeps up im XXX away from what i weighed before i started kickboxing yay!

Re: Hungry ALL the time - September 8th 2011, 02:58 PM

Well, do you have any other symptoms other than being hungry? Are you especially tired - fatigued? Does your throat hurt? Etc.

Depending on the symptoms it may be hypothyroidism which can cause constant hunger. Usually very easily treated and low risk of complications. But it is something that needs to be taken care of if this might be what you have.

Otherwise, the only other suggestion is to make sure you are actually hungry and it's not your brain thinking you are. It's hard to differentiate, but it's actually quite common.

If you cannot seem to get it under control, I'd definitely suggest a doctor as feeling hungry often can be several things. Some more severe than others, and it should be looked at.

Keep trying different things but I would suggest a doctor when you are able to.

I've also recently started the pill and my appetite has increased quite a lot as well. Besides an increase in breast size, I haven't had any weight gain.
