Excessive Hunger? in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted January 30, 2010 · Report to Admin I was excessively hungry for several months before going gluten-free. It got progressively worse..and I was always craving cereal and wheat-y foods. It was pretty miserable because every time I ate, I'd feel so full, bloated, gassy, and just total discomfort but my stomach would be empty within an hour of eating and I'd feel like I needed the food. Vicious cycle! After going gluten-free, my hungry eventually subsided and I don't crave cereal at all anymore. (and when I say crave, I was going through a box a day! It was almost all I was eating). I'm not sure about your other questions, though.
