Originally Answered: Why am I always soooo hungry?
From your description, you can get away with eating more than the average woman. However, it is possible that you have abnormal blood sugar issues, which is very common especially in women.The fact is that insulin causes hunger. As blood sugar increases following a carbohydrate meal, insulin rises with the eventual result of lower blood sugar. This results in hunger, often only a couple of hours (or less) after the meal. Cravings, usually for sweets, are frequently part of this cycle, leading you to resort to snacking, often on more carbohydrates. I would suggest limiting your intake of refined sugars. So, next time you can skip the glass of OJ. Also, make sure that the carbs that you do eat are low on the glycemic index. Some examples are: brown rice, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, barley, lentils and beans. Generally, non-carbohydrate foods-proteins and fats-don't produce much insulin.
