Lack Of Hunger
0

4 posts in this topic

i'm approaching 4 weeks of being off gluten. i feel like things have stabilized pretty well. i've discovered i'm sensitive to potatoes but i haven't tried other night shades yet. my skin is clearing up on my back and stomach. i haven't had a single headache or sinus problem which was my main issue. i'm able to get out of bed and be productive and don't nap everyday. i feel like a millions bucks most days compared to how i felt two months ago.

the one thing that's hard to adjust to is the lack of hunger. once i got past that starving detox phase i didn't seem to want to eat much. maybe this is just normal but it's so different to me. i was always the gal who went back for second or third servings. i was always looking for something to snack on. i would get hypoglycemic if i didn't eat every two hours. now i can go hours with no snacking and not feel hungry or shaky. i feel full after a bowl of cereal and can't finish my dinner most of the time.

does this sound pretty normal? i'd imagine it's because my body is actually processing the foods instead of shooting through my system.

I wish I had that problem. LOL I'm still hungry a lot after 2 months into the diet. I would just make sure that you are eating healthy foods and that you are eating enough calories during the day and not worry about it. Good thing you have had so much relief!

Your not alone. I almost never feel really hungrey either. The only exception is right after I have been glutened, then I can't get enough for a couple of days. I also think this is because my body is processing food normally now. I was constantly starving for the first couple months gluten-free but before that when I was on gluten I didn't feel hungrey either. But I think that was a sort of Pavlov's dog in reverse. Since for many years I got sick after anything I ate prediagnosis I just never wanted to eat.

In the first couple of weeks I didn't feel hungry, either. I would try to eat anyway, and had trouble getting down/digesting typical large meals. Instead I ate small meals/snacks every 2-3 hours during this phase, and didn't have any problems with this. Now, I'm having trouble sensing feeling full, so I have to be careful!!
