Default hunger

I'm not talking about everyday hunger but a couple of days ago I was ravenously hungry. I am not skipping meals or changing what foods I eat (except for cutting out junk food), just eating less.

Funny thing was, in general I don't feel all that hungry until I actually start eating. The other day I had lunch and the food tasted soooo good. When I was done I wanted more, it was so hard to resist eating more. I stayed strong this time, did something distracting and the hunger eventually subsided, but in the future I may not be so disciplined.

Is it a bad sign when I am so hungry once I start eating? If so, what can I do to curb the ravenous hunger?

we all have hunger episodes or cravings. Slow down your eating take around 20 minutes to eat, it will give a chance to your brain to register that your are not hungry anymore.

I agree, slow down. Drink water as you eat as well. It will help. Sometimes, I will add extra spices (like oregano or basil depending on what it is) I noticed the more flavor of the item I'm eating, the less I feel like I'm hungry. If something is bland, I feel less full after I'm done no matter how much of it I ate and how slowly. So maybe sprinkle a little extra seasoning, avoiding too much salt of course.
I've decided to leave 3FC, In the crowd of so many, those of us with no success that have the audacity to feel bad about our incredibly slow and almost stagnate weight loss, are merely a nuisance to those that are successful. I hope everyone else finds the support they need.

Maybe drink some tea after you are done? As a sign that you are done plus tea can also help satisfy you.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

Eat more lean protein. Like eggs and fish.
