I have eaten at the top of my calorie range for the past three days. I've been so hungry.
When I look at the composition of my meals, I don't see an imbalance which would lead my eating to be out of control.
I've been physically active but not so much that it would account for the increased appetite. In fact, even if I consider the higher calorie burn estimates of my pedometer and HR, it still isn't enough to account for this surge of hunger.
My sleep has actually been better the last couple of nights. Yes, I am probably still running at a deficit but I can't see that my sleep patterns are any different that usual.
I am somewhat bored. Not tremendously so.
I am far too old for female hormones to be used as an explanation for this hunger. What age hasn't affected, the surgeons have. LOL
Perhaps the slightly longer days are causing a change in my brain chemicals....maybe I'm just coming out of hibernation.
I don't have an answer. Sometimes it just is what it is.
So....keep tracking all my food, my fitness, aim for the best nutrition and sleep that I can. Stay the course and eventually the course will change.
