View Full Version : Why am I so hungry???
01-29-2008, 06:45 PM
I've been 100% raw for three months now, and for the past couple days I've been STARVING!! No matter what or how much I eat, I can't seem to get enough food. I thought that after three months my body would have started stabilizing out somewhat. Why can't I get full?? If I keep going like this, my refrigerator and cupboards are going to be empty before I know it.

Hey agumble! At first, I was just going to say that it goes in phases....I can go every evening for weeks without wanting dinner, and then all of a sudden, I can't STOP eating around the same time! But also, what are you eating? Could it be possible that you're not eating enough substance? Maybe add a little more fat, or fibre? I don't really have an expert answer for you, but those were the things I thought of. I'm sure you'll get the answer you're looking for!

hi! could just be a response to being raw, perhaps your bod is still getting used to this new way of eating or like one of the other posts said maybe you could eat more 'filling' food. or maybe you're still getting over some old addiction (mental or physical?)
also could be that your'e missing a nutrient. consider what your eating. do you have an excellent source of b12? or all the b-vitamins?, if your not getting that, your body could be searching for them by being hungery till it finds it.
are you getting in enough complete protein? lots of dark greens, or spirulina, bee pollen, flax seeds are good sources for that.
i know some people might get upset at me for mentioning these things as i might sound like i'm making the diet to 'complicated' but really, there are in fact certain nutrients you need and if you don't get them you can suffer in the long run. so listen to your bod, consider the foods you eat every day...do you need to add something?
wishing you the best,
