Always Hungry

On a daily basis, I generally eat very healthy and I work out 3 days a week. The problem is, is that I love to eat and I'm hungry all of the time. Everywhere I go, there is food being offered to eat for free(and it is generally not the healthy type), so I eat it. I can't not turn down the food. Please, I need some suggestions.

Thank you.

i suggested this the last time i came across this topic in a thread...could you think about it like this: if someone was giving away cigarettes, would you smoke them just because they're free?

I've heard that people can mistake thirst for hunger.. personally I don't know how, but drinking a glass of water when you're hungrey can slove the trick....

of course if you're really, really hungery all the time try eating a diet high in fiber. This will help yor retain water and make you feel more full- not to mention the added benefit of being regular if you know what I mean.

Foods that are high in fiber are whole grains like oats and bran- please note brown rice although considered a whole grain has no to little fiber and is not beneficial in this circumstance, vegetables (celery surprisingly has the most fiber content), and friuts all have fiber. Beware of eating too many servings of these foods, especially whole grains and friuts (they have higher calories per serving than vegetables).

Take a look at your BMI and activity level to see how many calories/serviings you should be eating per day- you may be too restrictive accounting for the constant hunger. A good website to check out is (link below) this will keep you on track of you are at all unsure of how you should be goaling yourself.

actually, a cup of brown rice has 3.5 grams of fiber...

I used to have this same problem. I was ALWAYS hungry. My doctor explained that fruits and veggies and grains burn off in 2 hours or less, but meat will sustain for longer periods of time. Now I work in eggs, cottage cheese, fish or lean meat with each meal. As a result, it is not uncommon for me to go 6 hours until the next meal on the weekends. I have a schedule on weekdays of every 4 hours. Plus, when I do get hungry, it is a different kind of hunger. It is not so painful and I don't get weak or shakey.

This was a difficult adjustment for me because I was not much of a meat eater. I can only tolerate the leanest of lean. Skin, bone and fat gross me out on steaks and chicken, etc. But, now that I have been doing it for a while, I know what cuts to buy, etc.
