I am hungry all the time! Literally, all the time. If I go 3-4 hours without eating, I feel famished and sometimes even light headed and shaky.
Usually this isn't a problem because I eat constantly. (It's a rare day when I don't eat every hour or so...) But, whenever I try to "eat healthy"/diet, I obviously need to restrict calories. Nothing crazy--I still eat three meals with a snack inbetween each one. And I ALWAYS eat breakfast (usually oatmeal or an omelet), but I can never make it to lunch without a snack.
How do I stop feeling famished all the time?!
I am always trying to up my protein because I'm not a big meat eater (i try to incorporate eggs/tuna/beans into each meal...), but I think I get a pretty balanced diet, I just always feel hungry! I'm beginning to think it's less a physical than a mental thing. How do I stop feeling hungry? Usually when I am thinking about food I drink water or tea, but that doesn't really help for long!
I am really stressed all the time--could that mimic physical hunger? I've known I'm a stress eater for years, but I actually feel physically hungry all the time!
