    Last couple of days I've been hungry all the time, even when just eaten. I had a red day yesterday and thought that was why but on green today and am the same.:(

    First couple of weeks I was really full all the time, don't know why I've suddenly got the munchies.

    I am managing to stay on plan, had serious munchies last night but stayed within syn allowance (just)

    Today I've had

    28g (ish, don't have scales) Raisin Wheats
    apple
    mug shot

    that was up to 11 and I'm still hungry. Is is psychological?

    Gonna have eggs for lunch and quorn stir fry for tea with oodles of noodles :D.

    Any one else have this? Any tips?

    I found that I got the munchies about 3 weeks in, I put it down to the fact my body was getting used to eating more than before (even though I was fat I didn't eat much just the wrong stuff lol). I just made sure that I carried some free foods with me like grapes (I only do green so but I am sure others can suggest free reds) I figured so long as it's free eat when you are hungry. My SW leader agrees as well

    Are you due on anytime soon? I always find that i'm starving for the week before * week. I also suffer with migraines, and i can always predict when one's about to strike because i'm ravenous for teh 24 hours beforehand!

    I'm in the middle of cycle atm so had discounted that really, but glad to see I'm not the only one!

    Discarded the eggs idea and having a whole tin of spaghetti hoops and a slice of toast (hexb).. see if that helps..:sigh:

    It could be that your metabolism has had a boost and your now wanting more. Or sometimes we think that we are hungry when really we are thirsty. It also takes 20 mins before our brain registered that we are full. So after your meal, have a good drink, wait 20 mins, if your still hungry then tuck in!

    And if there is a pitter patter of tiny feet, congrats!!

    seriously, wouldn't be the end of the world but a bit fly in the ointment!


    Anyhoo.. back to the eating thing... still going

    had a large tin of spaghetti for lunch
    just had a muller lite (which is unheard of for me in the day)

    Still hungry..

    but will do as you suggest spaceangel and have a drink instead..

    Hiya
    I get starvin about 2 weeks before the TOTM and i could literally eat anything in sight but if its not this and your not with child then it is most likely head hunger or your body just having an off week. Way round it is if you have just eaten a meal that you should be full on then have a nice brew or a drink of water and wait 20 minutes or so ( i tend to wait half n hour) if you are still hungry then odds are you are hungry so grab a piece of fruit or something good for you eat this then if your still hungry half n hour later have another brew or drink of water and see if this fixes it. if not then sod it just have something free and huge to eat lol
