What's up with this "hunger"

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

i just totally have the munchies tonight and don't typically get these. i made dinner for the boys (which isn't my strong suit as the husband's a chef) and had a wasa cracker with a laughing cow cheese wedge and strawberry jelly on it for myself as i didn't want mac n cheese. then i was still hungry so had some pecan halves with chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup). still wanting something so i had a glass of milk...what's my deal? i then brushed my teeth as it was nearing 7pm and i don't like eating "late" if i'm not planning on being up late (it's a whole different deal if i'm working eves and won't be done until 1130pm). but i still find myself wanting to eat although when i think about my stomach, i don't feel hungry. hormones maybe? i should almost force myself to go to be now so i won't be tempted anymore. emoticon

    i am a cliche when it comes to a hormonale/pms-ing woman, i am not full unless i have something chocolate-related.
a little bit is okay.
fill up on healthy stuff and take a taste of the unhealthy stuff

    Could be your body is craving a certain nutrient (calcium, iron, etc.). Are you taking multivitamins? That might help. Also, you ate very reasonably, not a lot of calories, so unless you ate lots of food earlier in the day, you should be doing fine, and you could have a small apple or carrots or another healthy snack.
I also read somewhere that sometimes we think we want food when our body really wants liquids. Try drinking some tea or water. Personally, I like sparkling water or diet soda, because the bubbles create more of an illusion of a full stomach, and I'm less likely to snack.
If you really don't feel hungry, it might help to go to sleep - if you can.
Keep up the good work!

    Are you sure you're eating enough??? A wasa cracker with cheese and jelly is hardly enough. That's barely a whole snack!!! LOL You may be getting those dreaded munchies because of what you're eating, or because of what you're NOT eating.
