It might not affect you but if someone else is reading it might be beneficial.

Thaks for the help everyone, I had added the extra calories in the form of refined carbs (my sweet tooth in action!) so I looked at my nutrient breakdown and though I was in the range for everything, my carbs were at the upper end and fat and protein was at the lower end. So I changed my extra calories to fat/protein sources such as cheese and nuts and this seems to have helped. Appetite back to normal! Thanks again for everyones advice. emoticon

My thoughts are similar to Sandy's.

I was going to ask you what you added back in the form of 200 calories? Also, how has your exercising changed? If you add back calories but increase your Cardio you could still be eating too few.

Are you balancing your Calories In vs. Calories Out for a zero calorie deficit?

Too many questions to give you an answer but perhaps we have touched on a solution since you know the answers?

We will still be here waiting to help you.

Tryinghard's advice is really sound.

Even if I'm eating more, I'll find my body is craving *something.* Usually, it's protein when I wind up eating more grains. Sometimes it's fruit, on and on it goes. At first I don't realize it, and just keep eating whatever's in front of me, which has always fascinated me.

Looking not just the calories, but what you're eating helps a lot. What's missing or out of whack?

Best,

One of the things I found between Losing and Maintaining is the psychological difference. For me who has been a YOYO dieter there has always been a letting go of the lessons I learnt while dieting. I have had to recognise that this is a lifestyle change. At times I did feel hungry so I had a look at what was not balanced in my nutrition. Perhaps if you have a look at the breakdown of nutrients you are putting in you might find that you're a bit out of balance. I do have to be careful with carbs and fats, one too much and the other too little. I can only go on my own experience so I hope it helps.

Hi since I have entered maintenance mode I have increased my calories per day by about 200. Since I have done this I feel hungry often and while I was in the losing stage I never felt hungry. I haven't felt like this since since first joining SparkPeople. Has anyone else experienced this and will it go away soon? Its frustrating eating more yet feeling hungrier!
