I'm hungry all the time

For the past few years, I was on meds that had appetite suppression as a side effect. Since I've been off of them (and especially over the last couple of months), I am hungry all the time. The more I eat, the hungrier I am, it seems. I have gained 30 lbs over the last year and a half.

Is this a symptom of some disease or something? I eat a lot and I shouldn't be hungry. What's wrong with me?

I've googled the answer for you.

Eat! Eat! Eat! doesn't anyone fuck anymore?

I don't know if medically there is anything wrong with you but I learned years ago at Weight Watchers that if you think you're hungry often you're actually just thirsty. So drink water, all the time. And see your doctor to make sure there's nothing going on. There probably isn't.

Drink lots of water and stock up on Psyllium Husk or Glucomannan.

Are you on anti-depressants? I found I was constantly ravenous on Zoloft.

Nothings wrong with you OP. Just continue to eat and don't pay attention to anyone on this thread. You're fine!

I'm trying to get off of Luvox, which is similar to Zoloft, so that could be it.

Sometimes the beginning of forming a stomach ulcer will mimic a hungry, empty stomach. Over time, swallowing certain pills, especially OTC pain relievers, will cause acidic ulcerated lining that will trigger hunger because the stomach is asking for something to buffer and absorb the lining secretions.

One of this signs of diabetes is extreme thirst and hunger.

When you say "hungry" what do you mean, OP?

Is you stomach actually growling? Or are you just craving something to eat?

Ulcers can make your stomach feel empty and growling right after food.

Sounds like your insulin response is out of whack. Get it checked out.

Can someone please post an "I'm drunk all the time" thread so Liza can spend $18 on a bottle (gallon) of Popov?

get your thyroid check or your hemorrhoids. But most likely it could be your thyroid.

The three "polys" of diabetes: polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyuria (peeing all the time), and polyphagia (excessive hunger).

Are you an adolescent, OP? If so, it's natural. You're a growing boy.

OP, I think you need to drink more water, and re-train yourself. I eat something about every two or three hours, but my total caloric intake is aroud 1600-1800. I'm not fat. It's whatyou eat that's important. Cut back on carbs and start eating more protein.

R13, my stomach isn't growling...I just crave something to eat.

I don't think I have diabetes. I'm only 30 and it doesn't run in my family. I think it might be medication related. I've recently stopped taking Luvox and it's playing with my head. I feel less spacey today, and I haven't been ravenously hungry.

R19 might be onto something. My eating habits are atrocious.

R19 is a great, big fat girl like Catherine Martin (and probably eating a meatball sandwich like Dawn Davenport)!

It could be worms. Have you checked your feces for wrigglers?

maybe you need a hug

R17 is right. If you have any of the other two, that could be the problem. It was for me. If I go too long in between meals, I end up getting intensely hungry and my blood sugar increases typically too, so this is not good. This is why diabetics should eat SMALL meals every 4 hours. I rarely go more than 4 hours without eating and

I lose weight and keep my blood sugar level steadier and lower this way too. Non-diabetics benefit from eating every four hours too and you may be able to keep from getting too hungry by doing this OP. Just stop and wait 10 minutes after a small meal to try and avoid overeating.
