Why does my stomach want to be overly full, all the time?
It seems to want the crab rich junk , all the time!

I don't know? LoL
Try and fill up on low cal foods and top it off with the rich stuff. Then you still get it but do not gorge on it.
How long have you been raw? Most people say that after they've been 100% for a while, they stop craving the richer stuff and just want plain fruits/veggies. I think that while you're transistioning to raw, you can eat pretty much whatever raw food that will keep you raw - and if that's a lot of nuts, deserts, dehydrated stuff, then fine :)

Over time I find that I need to eat less and less on raw.
The kinds of foods that I eat don't really change that much . . . I still have desserts, dehydrated stuff, nuts etc. but I just want much less of it (and everything else).
Just go with the flow. Sometimes you will want to eat a lot, and other times much less.

Why does my stomach want to be overly full, all the time?This I have experienced. It seems to be a problem of physical size. I think it is because when some people go raw they are over sized in the middle stomach area. The tank (stomach) has been stretched out to a large size and so the "full" signal isn't reached until the big tank is filled. As a person stays raw the stomach shrinks and so a "full" signal is reached sooner and with less food. Hang in there and this part of your question should self correct as the stomach shrinks down in size.

I still have this problem occasionally, but alot of the time it's solely mental for me. I link certain situations with STUFFING myself, so I don't feel satisfied if I don't do it....even though i'm eating raw foods, it still isn't good.
It's hard to break mental habits.

It may not be that it is saying that it needs more food but just that it is short of a particular food and this manifests itself as hunger and empty.
This happens to me if I have left myself short of greens. Are you having any greens.
