With the recent "fall back" into non-day light savings time, I have noticed an increase in my appetite. I wake up hungry and my breakfast only keeps me satiated until about 9am. Even with small snacks, I feel like I am constantly hungry.
So this is what a typical day looks like for me:
7am (breakfast) - Steel cut oats with fruit and nuts, coffee with 1% milk (~300 calories)
9:30am (second breakfast) - piece of fruit and handful of nuts (~150 calories)
11:30am (elevenses) - soup or sandwich (~400 calories)
3:00pm (tea) - hot tea, fruit or veg, and cottage cheese (~150 calories)
6:00pm (supper) - varies (~500 calories)
This puts me at ~1,500 calories for the day, which is at the upper end of my calorie range. And this was manageable before the time change, but now I just feel famished all day long except for just after a meal.
Does anyone else experience this? Or have recommendations on how to not go over my calories when I am just hungry all day?
