yes there are times i'm hungry
drink plenty of water and if you don't like water make some crystal lite (fruit punch is very good)

how many times are you eating a day? My husband is prediabetic and he eats 8-9 times maybe 10 times a day.And he succeeded to lose 40 lbs in 5 months by eating in that way.He is on low glycemic index diet.The secret is what to eat and how much to eat …How is your eating system? Are you on a diet?

I agree with Birdie. Eating every 4 hours (small meals) as helped me drop the weight and keep it off. If I get hungry I get a snack then half it. if you keep starving do not go crazy but add food and of course watch the carbs.

I am followng an exchange diet from my dr but am finding my body is very carb sensitive lately. i will try to break my eating up to smaller meals and see if this helps. I seem to be needing more insulin lately after a bout of predisone for an allergy reaction. i will research some diets. Info has been very helpful thank you !

Prednisone. while necessary sometimes does a real number on ppl's BG rdgs. It did with my wife Jem's. It's been about 3 mos since she got off the drug but just now we're starting to get her BGs under better control. 3 or 4 times in Dec 09 she was above the meter's limit of 600.

And as I recall the prednisone made her RAVENOUS. She had been "medically (because of the drugs she is taking) anorexic" before But she just could not get enough to satisfy her when on prednisone. Maybe that is PART of your problem.

Chances are your metabolism is finally working right and your meds are doing their job. Try drinking a glass of cool, not cold water. See if this helps. I sip on water all day long, this seems to starve off hunger.

Yes, It happens to me at times. I find it is when I have had a meal that is mainly veggies. It fills me up at the time, but does
not last.

I do notice I eat well and watch what I eat all day long. But sometimes after I eat almost 1-1 1/2 hours later Im hungry all over again as if I didn't eat or have a snack. I've loss weight and Im worried about putting it back on thru snacking or eating too close together. So I do understand what your going thru. Im hungry even if I snack, on veggies sugar free jello,puddings, walnuts, etc.
