Question: Should you really be hungry on Atkins? I mean, the diet doesn't restrict calories, so why not just add an extra LC snack during the day? I know that LC doesn't necessarily mean High protein, but I've found that protein-rich foods actually leave me pretty full (and that's eating smaller meals several times throughout the day). I can only speak for myself, so maybe it varies a bit person to person. I guess appetite suppressants bring me back to the high school days of an unhealthy mindframe. Also, maybe write down what you eat for a week (if you don't already) and evaluate your diet. Are you eating enough food and are you eating frequently enough? Your body may also just need something simple like water. Make sure you're taking in a decent amount. I eat 5-6 times a day and I force myself to drink at LEAST 12oz with each meal. The rest I make up throughout the day during my workout or in between meals. Just my $0.02.
