Feeling hungry after eating fruit
I like to have fruit as a mid day snack, but I find that I'm often just ravenous after I eat fruit. Is this common?

this is very common for many people because it is often not enough to satisfy you. I recommend eating it with some form of protein and focus on high fiber fruits like pears and strawberries.

An apple always makes me so much more hungrier than I was before eating it.

I too can not eat apples for the same reason. I find that if I eat them half hour later Im starving worse then before I ate it.

As my friend's trainer says, "Fruit is not a meal." It's fine to finish off your lunch with fruit. Have it with a bit of protein otherwise - a handful of nuts and seeds, perhaps? That should do it, snackwise...

or a teaspoon of natural peanut butter..

Non fat cottage cheese mixed with diced up fruit is delicious and sticks to your ribs. Add a couple of broken up walnuts and you will have real staying power...that way you get carbs, protein and good fats....and your blood sugar won't crash.

bananas are filling. avocadoes too - but loads of fat.

fruit can irritate one's stomach
Ooooh, I have that problem with apples, and it has _nothing_ to do with satiety. It has to do with being mildly allergic to apples -- they irritate my stomach lining, and the irritation/acid production feels like hunger. I suppose that this could be true of other fruit as well.
My solution to this is to not eat raw apples. Baked is fine, even lightly microwaved is fine -- but the raw ones are irritating.

raw apples are the worst for that.... i also find the same thing with carrots. they both irritate my stomach and make me far hungrier. however, i can eat a banana or some grapes and feel full for hours.

hungrier after eating fruit
funny, I find fruit helps me when I am getting very hungry. Buys me an hour usually near the the end of the day before dinner.
