I'm on week 6, and I have been hungry since day one. Some days Its unbearable. I'm a chef, and have to cook all day, and Can't even taste my food :(
It's all in our head. LT gives our bodies enough nutrients etc, so we are not actually hungry, its just our mind playing tricks on us!
I hope it passes for you, but if like me, you still want food, just remember, its all mind games!

I too spend most of my time watching the Home channel, and any foody programes. Although it makes me drool, I've noticed my food cravings have changed, and I want to eat healthy stuff. I cant wait to come off TFR and eat lovely healthy dishes :)

I always feel hungry at meal times, so I think its my mind thinking i would normally eat around now, and so my tummy grumbles and my mind thinks i want food, i find drinking water and finding something totally unrelated to do really helps, and after a few minutes, i've forgotten and i'm not hungry any more. This diet is very much like smoking, the hunger is like smoking cravings, it doesn't last very long, but its very unplesant when it happens.

I think ot must be a fact that everyone will hungry days. I have to cook food for family but when I feel a weakening of resolve, I reach for the water. For me, constant sipping of water makes me forget about eating. Keep stromg.

Keep busy!! I find if I'm at a loose end I start thinking, and then *pop* up jumps a hunger pang out of the blue! It is usually when everyone else is indulging and my subconscious gets jealous and feels deprived.

Keep strong BWB, you are doing amazingly well. Emma's post is brilliant and so right, our minds are little tricksters that need to be ignored!

It honestly does get better! I found I was hungry for the first fortnight, but, really, I think after the initial physical hunger a lot of it is just that we want to eat & feel as if we're hungry. I still get that sometimes, but, surprisingly it's generally when I'm either bored/fed-up/there's something yummy in front of me!

It will get much better though (no one would manage it for any prolonged period if we were starving all the time!!) stick with it! Good luck :)

Hahaha! Class! Not only will our bodies be fit, healthy and fabulous, our houses will be like show houses! Nevermind the fact we'll all be in therapy for OCD!

BWB, next you'll be moisturising with cocoa butter and looking for the best exfoliating mitt!

BWB-

Day 9 was my worst day!!

For some reason I was starving and miserable...and then weirdly day 10 or 11 things seemed to click into place a little.

I do still get hungry- but it's more when I see or smell food and I'm realising the hunger is in my head!

Keep up the good work- you're doing brilliantly. I find the only thing that helps is to focus on the next weigh in. A few more days and you'll be feeling fantastic after another good loss. Chin up hun!
