I agree with the others. I've found that if I stay within my suggested calorie and nutrition range, I don't feel hungry either.

i feel the same way. I am not hungry and staying within my calorie range. I think it is because I am making better choices and not eating a lot of empty calories. We can do this! emoticon

I agree, you are probably eating what you need and feel satisfied like you should. I am just starting to learn my body's signals and learning what the right amount feels like. It is true, you might be really hungry on a different day and maybe you should eat a bit more on those days. Another thing to consider is your exercise, if that hasn't changed at all, you are probably right on with the food. If you increase your activity, you will need more food and your appetite will increase. Happy Sparking!

I don't think you're doing it wrong. Diets are different for everyone. I just started mine 3 days ago. The first day I was dying for pizza, but day 2 was better and I had satisfying healthy meals and didn't really crave anything else. So far today I'm kind of hungry, but its not too bad.

From a diet I had tried (and failed) a year or two ago, I remember just not being hungry by about the 5th day. I could go 8 or 9 hours without even wanting to eat.

I think its different for everyone. Maybe tomorrow you'll be really hungry, or maybe you're doing your calories right and your body is telling you, "This is good, this is how I want it."

I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous but I've started worrying I'm doing something wrong because I'm really not hungry. I've been tracking my calories every day and staying within the range and I'm not hungry at all. Yesterday I ate some dark chocolate because I still hadn't met my calorie goal after dinner.

Am I doing this right? Maybe I'm too used to regular diets but this seems so strange and I'm worried I'm doing something wrong!
