Re: Always hungry

How much protein do you get in your diet?

Carbs can make you hungry (like if you have half a banana at breakfast you'll likely be hungry an hour later!), so perhaps putting more protein in there would help curb the hunger?

Try cutting out the carbs at breakfast (just be careful to make sure your blood sugars can be sustained without the carbs given your medications) and just have proteins (an egg, piece of cheese and a slice or two of bacon) and see how your hunger level is after that. A protein shake with some yogurt and soy milk (sugar free whey powder is great and comes in some yummy flavours) with some ground flax seed can work wonders for hunger.

Hope this helps!
