I ALWAYS feel hungry on new diet - is this Normal??
So I started my cutting diet on Monday, I'm eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and each meal is roughly 250-275 calories give or take. I'm finding though that about an hour after a meal I am starving again! For example I ate today around 1:30, it's 3:00 now and my stomach is growling. All I can think about is my next meal!
I'm wondering if it's just my body adapting to smaller more frequent meals (it has only been 4 days afterall) or can I expect to be hungry for the rest of the time I am dieting?

How were you eating previous to your diet?

I didnt do this on purpose of course, I just wasnt being disciplined to eat within a good time period.

well, if it means anything to ya, I happen to eat roughly every hour or two when at work....
I really should be eating pro fat or pro carb or pro fat veggie etc meals but I usually eat a little here and there like some salmon .. then one hour later a bannana etc
I am going to eat them together but yes i am hungry more often since eat more ofter smaller meals as opposed to one stomach stretching huge whoppin meal
just keep it and drink more water to fill yourself up more and cleanse

I'm thinking just give it another week and see if you get used to it, up the water intake....If that still leaves you real hungry then you may wanna try something like Leptigen or Hoodia to supress the appitite.

you may post your diet , I feel you are not taking enough fat !
and for dieting, I guess cold water is ideal !!
beaing hungry after 1& half hours, may be it is due to some intensive workout.
or maybe you are not taking the right food !!

i tell you one thing. When Im cutting Im ALWAYS hungry. I have tweaked around with the macros ect. Tried to raise kcal. But for me the only way for me not to be hungry is when I am bulking. Diet=constant hunger for me. Just because I love food so much.
Eating shitloads of veggies tend to help though.

I find also that I get hungry simply because I know that I cant have anything. If Im not cutting and like studiying I can sometimes forget to eat for hours and not be hungry at all. But when cutting I know damn well Im not allowed to eat what I want and that makes me hungry.
Same on cheat days. Im not at all as hungry on cheat days as other days. Because then I know I can eat. I hate my mind.

If not I have heard grea things about Hoodia being a great appitite suppressent. As well as ECA.

some people, especialy those that has been obese has a screwed upp apetite control. I know I belong to that group and so does a friend of mine. If we allow ourself to eat as much as we want to satisfy hunger we ballon up.
I hope you dont share this trait kitty lol its hell.
I read(dont know the merit to this)a nutritionist write in a swedish mag that a easy test to se if you have a normal apetite control is to eat nuts. According to him the body will quickly lower hunger when eating nuts and just a handfull of them should satisfy you if you have normal apetite regulation. If you dont have normal apetite regulation then you need to stuff to feel satisfied.

Fiber and fat would make nuts very filling! Great snack!
07-22-2005, 08:42 AM #13
not to me Im wierd like that. I need to eat like 300 grams of nuts at least to be fully satisfied. Thats like 0.7ibs. thats why I tend to stay away from nuts when cutting because if I start to eat them I just cant stop until the bag is empty. I can easily eat half a kilo of peanuts if I have it infront of me.
Thats why cutting is so hard for me sometimes. I need to separate myself from EVERYTHING tasty. I just cant take one bite out of something good. If I start to eat then Im done for.

And yes, it's hell. I know that if I want to keep my weight down it will be a life long struggle. Thats fine, I'm prepared to do what i have to to do, I rather be thin and hungry than fat and full.
ECA is not an option for me. I abused ephidrine when I was younger. Took it for 5 years straight, no breaks, very high dose. Blood pressure went through the roof and may have fukked with my metabolism a bit. I dont want to go down that road again so I'm going to avoid it all together. I could take Meridia, it triggers the brain's sateity signal before you would normally be full but theres some pretty bad sides associated with that as well.

My days revolve around food. I even talk about food most of the time or think about it. Like a crack addict or something
On cheat days I dont stop eating. I eat until my stomach hurts and still continute, i eat untill it feels like I cant swalllow anything more then I lie down on my couch thinking "Why the **** did I eat that much" but after 5 minutes I eat some more. I just cant stop, I do it without thinking.

Funny how food effects the mind so strongly.

I'm giving myself a break from it but it's very tempting to go back to it as I did get results.

You and me seems very similar when it comes to abuse both food and sups ect.
We have a similar thing to FFA in sweden but would feel silly sitting there decently lean and big among alot of obese people.

Ive told her the same thing about "nuts" ... they're a handful I assure you, but thank god she doesn't have normal appetite regulation because then I make sure she gets "stuffed"
"why the **** did I eat that much?" ehhehehe Johan my friend that was funny, and I'm sure almost everyone on this board has said that a few times!!
07-22-2005, 09:41 AM #23
lol talking about your nuts, telling me to wip it out, wanting to share a pyramid apartment with me. Are you hitting on me bro
lol Im thinking that right now. Cheat day today did a big motherload of pasta sauce and pasta and now Im afraid to move. The shake diet must have shrunken my stomach or something I eat like a pussy nowdays cant get anything down.

I usually use them on a cheat day because of the fact that I can't stop eating them
