  • You might have already tested, but are you pregnant or maybe just ovulating? I know I get a huge surge in appetite when I ovulate, and this time, before I found out I was pregnant I could not stop feeding my face!!

  • When they ask that question they are normally looking for a decrease in appetite and decrease in weight.

    Why are you so hungry? Well, I'm not sure. It could be one of many reasons. Pregnant, diabetic, depression, eating disorder....list goes on and on. I would not be concerned unless you are having any other "unusual" symptoms.

  • In the winter it is common to become more hungry out of an evolutionary urge to "store" fat for the coming cold. It may have something to do with that.
