Artic mama makes some excellent points. Also, having PCOS, you might consider trying to do more of a sugar controlled diet to control your sugar levels too. Sometimes eating carbs will make your sugar spike and plummet a lot which results in that hunger you're getting. Also, if you're getting up earlier and doing a different or more high impact workout, be sure that A-you hydrate well before, during and after the workout and B. Eat before or after (I have a hard time eating before one, I get nauseous) you workout and try to eat something that sticks with you like oatmeal with half a banana. Hope that helps!

My suggestion would be that you eat three larger meals a day and snacks in between, instead of eating every 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Aim for 400-calorie meals. That way you will feel better and not so ravenous all the time.

I in the same boat as Kaplods. Carbs make me hungry even now 7 months into this WOE. If I have cereal for breakfast I'm starving before snack time. I usually try mostly protein with some low carb vegetables until supper when I might have 1/2 cup of uncle sam's cereal or a bowl of oatmeal with truvia and 1/2 AND 1/2. This seems to be the approach that keeps me the most satisfied.

One for every 5 Lbs Lost!!!

You are not eating enough protein. I see an over abundance of carbs. Carbs leave you hungry after an hour. Protein is the most and longest satisfying food. A hard boiled egg or real cheese with your bagel will keep you full longer than cream cheese. A piece of fruit and some cheese, peanut butter, or yogurt is more filling, etc.

what everyone said, and that for me, eating high volume, low calorie (ie tons of veggies) helps my hunger a lot. i like to eat a LOT of food, and those tiny little lean cuisines don't cut it. a huge salad (lots of different veggies, raw and cooked, plus some protein like tuna, an egg, nuts, etc.), a huge bowl of veggie rich soup, and i feel very satisfied. lately i'm addicted to collards, which don't cook down so much as other greens are have some toothy bite to them. and so nutritious. i eat a big bowl of them with some beans and hot sauce and i feel full and virtuous(!). i love low fat greek yogurt, too, which is so creamy and has a lot of protein. i try to keep carbs relatively low because, for me, they induce cravings for more.

sounds like you have a great attitude and you've probably already gone out and stocked up on veggies and protein! you'll get through this!
