I agree that what you are eating, as well as how many calories, makes a big difference. Too few calories, or food that isn't that healthy can lead to hunger. We need protein, fiber and healthy fats, which many people try to cut out because of calories.
Also, are you really hungry, or just craving food for the satisfaction of it? I know I often want food but am not truly hungry. There is a difference and sometimes it takes a while to be able to tell the difference.
If I try to cut out every 'treat' from my diet, I don't succeed. So, I try to eat well most of the time but allow for some treats and work those into my calories.
The first few days to a week of a diet are often harder as you adjust to eating less and not having the usual goodies you might be used to, so give it time, if, say, you are going from a diet that is largely junk food, pop and highly processed food. You will adjust and soon feel better and have fewer cravings.
