  • Try to eat smaller portions and eat SLOW. Seriously we think we are still hungry but really we dont give our bodies enough him to become full. :) Good Luck

  • Do you drink water? Try drinking a glass of water before you eat and see if that helps!

  • I bought a metamucil type powder (store brand) that I add to water due to problems going to the bathroom. Well, it's basically fiber and it makes me full. It's for the most part harmless except that it contains a bit of aspartame. Otherwise, eat carrots or other veggies when you're hungry. Peas have almost no calories.

  • I felt this way a while back and it turns out it was my BC pill. I was on the mini pill b/c I was BF and when I wanted to stop my DR said that the mini pill can make you hungry. I switched pills and I am no longer starving.

  • Regular, vigorous exercise is a great physical appetite suppressant. Plus as you get into better shape, mentally you will desire less junk and be less likely to overeat because you won't want to wreck your results.

  • Well the problem is, when you get used to eating larger meals you train your stomach to expand and stretch further to accommodate the amount of food you habitually intake. The occasional overeating will not do it, but consistent overeating will. If you are used to eating large meals, you are going to have to re-train yourself to eat smaller portions. Eventually your stomach will get used to eating the correct amount of food and it will alert you to fullness way sooner. Our bodies are resilient so some patience and self control will really help you get back your "I'm full" signal!
