Sure thing.

Personally, I had a really low calorie day yesterday (even despite a workout), not as hungry as normal. I wonder now whether my stomach is adjusting back to a new "normal."

I think I'm going to let my body lead on hunger, unless I notice any other problems/symptoms and then I'll ask my doctor.

Not being a doctor myself, I probably can't help that much.

I am wondering though whether you're exercising as well as watching nutrition. I find that I"m a lot more hungry after a big workout. Just food for thought (no pun intended).

Either way, congrats on your weight loss. Keep it up, my man!

I wouldn't worry about it too awful much. When I originally started losing weight, SP's recommendations were on the high side. I had plenty of fat to live on. Make sure you're taking a multivitamin. Unless you're going below 1500 calories consistently, I think you'll be fine. Eventually your intake will increase.

If you're really concerned, see your doc. I'm just some chump on the internets.

Maybe it's because I've increased the amount of water I've been drinking to 8 - 10 large glasses a day but I find that I am not hungry, especially at lunch time. I have been running about 500 calories a day less than recommended. Is this normal or is it because I've only been doing this for about 3 weeks. I have lost 5 lbs which is a good thing. But I find it really hard to meet my daily protien, carb, and fat goals. Sodium seems to be less of a problem.....figures.
