The last few months I've been putting off meals and sometimes skipping them. I just like that hungry feeling. I thought maybe it was because a grumbly tummy was proof that I was really dieting. THEN I stumbled across this article:

Any thoughts? Anyone else think they may be experiancing this? I've been so uncharacteristicly peppy lately that I'm waiting to get a drug test sprung on me at work.

I know what you mean. I sometimes feel virtuous when I am hungry (weird, I know). I've also heard, though, that one can become "addicted" to this hungry feeling and that it can sometimes lead to an eating disorder.

hi,

this is my first time on this site- I am hoping for some support!!
I am finding it difficult to stay on a diet, or even watch what I eat lately
I have gained weight and now having problems with my feet

Yeah I know what you mean about the hungry feeling.. I LOVE it cuz I feel like I'm doing something & I think I look better when I'm hungry too.. Is anybody else like that?!?

But then again I hate that hungry feeling cuz it's hard to make it go away with the little bit of food I allow myself.. Don't get me wrong, I eat enough calories in a day, but I think when my blood sugar drops because I'm so hungry, that when I eat, even though I'm full, it takes a little longer for my blood sugar to come back to normal..

Who knows?.. Let me know if anybody else is like that!

I love that hungry feeling too! It reminds me that I'm really dedicated to losing weight. It's satisfying and makes me feel like, wow, I have such will power!.

It's taking a lot less to get me full too. I'll have like, 4 or 5 small meals a day, like 100-200 calorie meals and I'll be satisfied. And I have more energy during my workouts too. So weird. Nice article, I have been in a really good mood lately.
