Constantly Hungry

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have only been on the diet a few weeks and am still learning the ins and outs, but I am noticing I feel hungry more often. Any one else experience this? I suppose it doesn't help that I am a vegetarian, so I am not getting great substance in my meals. I will eat a normal portion, but find myself ransacking the pantry throughout the night. My weight is dropping because I am trying not to over eat. Thoughts? Personal experiences?

I felt the same way in the beginning too. I am not a vegetarian, but I only eat chicken or fish a few times a week at the most. I added more things like peanut butter, beans (i.e. hummus dip with tortilla chips), nuts, and gluten-free vegan meal replacement bars. Also, I found I had to eat more often, which is fine with me because I am skinny. I wouldn't worry about over eating right now until you adjust to the diet. It gets easier with time.

Listen to your body - it's trying to tell you that it needs more. More of what is the problem. Your body is healing itself, which takes up energy that you supply in the way of calories. I would suggest more foods, but try to make them as protein dense as possible. I don't know what exactly to suggest as I'm not a vegetarian and haven't ever read up on it. But I do know that a high protein diet has been recommended for those with celiac disease; I've read it from more than one source. Hope this helps.

If you're not getting enough protein and fat to keep your blood sugar levels normal (and this is more protein than you just need for minimum amounts), you'll keep feeling hungry. Try to make sure to get more protein (either egg or dairy if you're not vegan, or lentils, nutritional yeast) and fat (oils, avocado, nuts, etc.)

Good to read your post!

I started my gluten-free diet 9 days ago and have been feeling hungry all the time too. Mornings are fine...but in the evenings I can't stop snacking. By the way, I am a vegetarian too...so I am doing my best to eat more foods such as beans, chickpeas, soy products etc. It doesn't help much, though...

I am a bit concerned about my weight gain since I have an eating disorder history. I am afraid that a sudden weight gain could triger it again. I do not want to go through that hell any more.

So many people mention putting on weight while on a gluten-free diet. Why is it so? Anyone can explain?

Cheers,

Alex

I too am vegetarian and was hungry all the time. Most recently though I started eating less, because I think I got so down about the diet and tired of cooking. I like soup alot. I also find that adding cottage cheese, eating eggs, not giving up cheese. If I eat a vegan diet I am just starving constantly. I don't like to overeat at a meal either, because I don't like to be stuffed. I was eating alot of junk, like icecream and m&m's and snickers bars. Not good for your immune system. Anyway, It is hard. I think not eating bread makes a person hungry all the time. At least for me. I do eat alot of avocadoes. Also eating Brown rice and beans helps.

Good luck,

Monica
