I Hate Feeling Hunrgry

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

All day today I felt hungry. Not typical hungry, but starving like. I ate a good breakfast a breakfast sandwich with a whole wheat English muffin, ham and an egg. But, it just didn't fill me up. I had a cereal type bar for breakfast and ate chocolate chip muffins too --- all before 11:00 which is my lunch. It makes me mad when I get really hungry like this and just can't feel full. My body is just weird. I try to load up on healthy snacks, but sometimes I get caught without them. No walking tonight because it poured down rain. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. Counting down the days until the kids are out of school.

    You described it so well! I go through that, too! I am ravenous and I just ate what I know is enough, and not completely horrible food. I do notice on my days off, when I am exercising more and eating just protein and fruit with fewer other carbs, I am not so hungry. I think it may have something to do with insulin levels in the blood. Perhaps in our body's attempt to metabolize the glucose in our bloodstream, extra insulin is released to help with that; but the insulin released causes us to feel so hungry when we know metabolically, we shouldn't be, because we just ate.

    So, maybe if we ate just a little less, and a little better, we wouldn't be so ravenous at times? I don't know. I am constantly trying to figure out why this is!

    I'm a volume eater, so I often eat an entire bag of steamed veggies with dinner so I feel full, but don't hike calories. There is no real substitute for planning. Plan a week's worth of menus and snacks that meet your goals, then go grocery shopping. Don't try to starve yourself; that strategy often backfires and shuts down good intentions. Once you have experienced a "good" week, note your food and exercise tracking, and copy that for another week.
