I hate the fact that I feel hungry all the time. Sometimes I just think I'm hungry and in all reality I'm not. Does anybody else have this problem? If so what do you suggest I do?

In the beginning, I found a lot of low or no carb foods so I could eat as much as I wanted to feel full. Now that things are starting to balance out, I'm getting used to the meal plan restrictions and am finding that I'm not as hungry as I once was. I think just the idea that I couldn't have everything I wanted made me want more. Carbonated beverages help make me feel full.

This is so true. If I have the low carb options, at least I don't destroy the work I have done so far. That is a great plan!

I feel very hungry if I am eating too many carbs. They amp my appetite! Usually if I add more "whole" foods or more protein it helps. Sometimes it takes a couple of days to get back to my normal appetite.

I hear you loud and clear. If I follow my low-carb diet, it seems I'm always feeling hungry. But, I find I can forget that I'm hungry if I'm involved in one of my activities or hobbies. My solution is to keep busy with non-food projects and activities.

What you can do is add some more protein, fat or fiber to your diet. That is what helps make you feel full longer. If you are eating low carb as we all tend to be, that adds to the hungry feeling. So up your other parts to fill in the gaps.

Yeah.. somedays I feel like I just want to eat and eat and eat.. instead I fill up on liqquid- usually crystal light. Curbs it for me.. I also snack periodically (small snacks) and small meals. A handful of nuts here, half an apple and a piece of cheese there, it helps too.
