Default When are you the hungriest?

I'm curious. I've noticed with me that I'm the most in the morning or mid morning.

I usually do Breakfast at 6:45, snack 8:15, snack 10, maybe another snack at 11:30 and then lunch at 12:30 or 1, snack around 3:30 or 4, dinner 6:30 and then I'm good for the rest of the night maybe a snack around 8:30 but very light.

I wonder why I'm so hungry in the morning. It's fine with me, I'd rather be hungry in the morning than evening.

What about you?

I think I get the most hungry right before I have my dinner, and then a couple hours after dinner. I'm really bad at keeping up with having snacks to keep my metabolism up all day; I really just kinda have the three main meals and random snacks on days where I feel like I need one. Thus when I get around to dinner it's usually been 3-4 hours since the last time I ate anything (sometimes 5 hours, heh) and I usually feel like inhaling my entire kitchen by that point, lol. But I never want to have dinner toooo early because I don't want to get the after-dinner hunger too early, either, LOL. A couple hours or so after I have dinner, I always get really bad mouth-hunger--I know I'm not actually hungry because I just had dinner, but I just feel like eating/tasting something (usually something sweet). I think it's because I usually stay up pretty late after dinner, so I have enough time to digest it and be ready for more! Lol. But I'm usually pretty good at cutting myself off after dinner, or if I have anything it's just a piece of fruit or something, so I don't feel too guilty.

I've found that the earlier I eat, the hungrier I am all day. I'm sure it has something to do with jump-starting your metabolism and such, which is good but also sooo frustrating when I feel like I'm never full! Lol. So I always have breakfast but I wait until 10 or so. I'm not usually hungry right when I wake up, but a few hours later I get the tummy gurgles, and that's when I know it's time for breakfast! If I could do the "6 small meals" thing, though, I think I would. It just doesn't fit into my schedule (especially when I go back to school, I'll be lucky if I can even make myself have breakfast every day! ).

monday, wedenesday and every other friday, breakfast at 5, snack at 10, lunch at 1:30 and dinner maybe around 9pm...I'm always super hungry at like 9am and 11am on these days. Tues and Thur, breakfast is 7, lunch at 1:30 and dinner maybe around 8pm and I don't usually feel starving on these days. I'm very used to skipping meals...I need to learn how to snack during the day. I only had 1400 cals yesterday because I didn't snack.

^ Don't mean to pry, but is that all you eat all day? That doesn't sound like very much!

I am always the most hungry at dinner. I could go all morning and afternoon without a morsel -- I have only done this a handful of times saving my points for an explosively awesome meal, but I easily could do this every day. I have toast in the morning and snack on fruit all day and have a very small light lunch. At dinner is where I usually fit in all my vegis -- a huge bowl -- and I will eat something dense. I think this is because I usually go for a run before dinner.

Well, aside from always being hungry - yikes! I'm usually hungriest after work/school. I usually have class from about 10 until 5 with some worked mixed in, so I am STARVING when I get home! Snacking is hard with straight class/work. Ugh.

If that really is all you eat, it's no wonder you can't go to the bathroom.

Seems for me to be anywhere between 9 a.m. until I eat lunch at 11 a.m. I eat breakfast at 6 a.m. so I've started incorporating a snack around 9:30 because I'm just so starving. After lunch I'm usually pretty good the rest of the day, but being really hungry and having bagels or donuts at your disposal likeI do is not a good idea!

I'm usually hungriest around noon and I don't get a lunch break until 1 usually. I have a liquid breakfast, my morning latte, which is super caloric, its a bad habit I just can't break. I snack sometimes in the mid morning if I bring a healthy snack to work with me, but I've found that having a morning snack actually makes me feel hungrier before I get my lunch break. Weird huh?

I'm never hungry for breakfast, never hungry for dinner. But lunch time is my thing.

I don't know why.

I'm usually hungriest between 3:00-5:00 because that's because my favorite shows are on then and I'm used to eating while I watch those shows. So I don't overeat, I have a prepackaged snack so I can control how much I eat.

In the UK I think they call Supper, "Tea". I remember my english neighbour said "It's tea time" and I was like WTF? No, I don't want tea, I wan't dinner, it's 5pm! She's like yeah, same thing...
I was so confused. Lol.

Anywho, I find I'm most hungry at night.... I don't snack much during the day. I eat 3 meals a day, then usually a snack at night.
