Yes. absolutely. Some days I haven't even eaten all my calories and I'm completely satisfied wondering how I will fit in more food and other days I would absolutely kill for another 100-200 calories. I think it all comes down to the quality of food I am eating. If I am not eating all my fruits and veggies and not enough protein I notice I am hungrier

I'm not sure, but I feel that way only 'some' days, as well. I think, for me at least, it's more of an emotional thing. Stress is probably the culprit most of the time, even on days when I don't necessarily feel particularly stressed.
Now that you've pointed this out, and I've put some thought into it, I think on those days I will try to pay more attention to how I am feeling throughout the day, and try to pinpoint if it's more of an emotional hunger, or thirst, even, than true hunger.

I so agree! There are some days that my meals are satisfying and I don't have any cravings and then some days when I think I could eat everything in my fridge and cabinet and still have room for more. Those days seem to leave me unsatisfied with what I eat and constantly searching for something else. I don't really vary my diet all that much so it isn't that some days I'm eating less filling/less satisfying things so makes no sense but so true.

Has anyone else noticed that certain days are hungry days? I haven't been able to pin-point why I can be so satisfied one day and so hungry the next. I try,most days to eat the same breakfast and lunch at the same time and my activity level for that time of day is always about the same M-F anyways, so why the big difference in hunger levels?
