This is more of an online vent than anything. I am so tired..........of being hungry all the time. It is awful to eat all the right stuff and be so hungry. I am not talking about emotional eating or eating in front of the TV. I am talking about true hunger. I track what I eat everyday faithfully. One day a week I am just so hungry that I eat everything in sight until I'm full. I am at my wits end. I wake up hungry. I go to bed hungry. I even wake up in the middle of the night the hunger is so bad. I have been having headaches, dizziness, and general not feeling well. I work in a doctors office. I have my doctor check my BP everyday and its great. I no longer need my BP meds, But they are not my PCP and do not offer any advice except to go to my PCP or RD.
I have tried so many things to stay full it¡¦s not funny. Then I have guilt that I didn¡¦t stay on my diet and lack the will power to force myself to stick to my goals. My weight has been the same for 3 weeks but I can fit into some clothes that I was not able to get into in years. I know that even though my scale is not moving that I am making progress. I have listened to many of friends and sparkpeople suggestions. Why is it not working to control my hunger? I have tried exercising but then I¡¦m hungrier than I was to start with. I drink tons of water. Just ask the toilet. It has respectful asked that I stop drinking so much ƒº I have added fiber capsules to my diet. I eat fresh fruits and veggies as snacks. My doctor and RD tell me to just stick to the calories 1400-1600 per day and it will get better. It¡¦s been 2.5 months. My appetite has not decreased. However I do not eat as much at one sitting. I try to eat smaller meals more frequently and it did not help in the least. So I ask my fellow spark people, what do you do to control your hunger? Any suggestions at this point are helpful.
