Why am I Always Hungry?

If you are reaching for a snack mere moments from leaving the dinner table, it is time to look at why you are always hungry. Of course, there are times when it is normal to be hungry, but there are some factors that cause excessive feelings of hunger. Knowing what triggers your hunger pains will help you decide how to lose weight.

You Lack Liquids

Maybe you are grumpy, easily irritated or weak. While they are all symptoms of hunger, they can also be symptoms of dehydration. Not consuming enough liquids, including not only water, but other beverages such as green tea, can make you feel hungry. Before grabbing a snack, drink a glass of slimming tea, to feel full without the additional calories.

You Lack Sleep

Not allowing your body to rest means it is working extra hard to stay awake and remain functional. High quality sleep helps regulate your hormones, including leptin, which helps you feel full. A lack of sleep will ramp up hunger, push fitness goals to the back burner and can stifle weight loss. The recommended eight hours of sleep for adults may be hard to come by, but creating a nighttime routine, including a night cleanse, will help curb your hunger.

Your Diet is Poor

A poor diet, high in simple carbohydrates and low in good fats and proteins, will keep your hunger unsatisfied. Reach for complex carbohydrates, seed and nuts for snacks and leave the empty calories found in most snack foods behind. Try a tablespoon of almond butter with apple slices for a slimming combination that will keep you feeling full longer.

Why am I Always Hungry? You are Skipping Meals

Yes, skipping meals left you hungry at that time, but studies have shown people who skip meals, even in an effort to lose weight fast, eat more calories than the average person throughout the day. Sticking to at least three balanced meals a day will keep your diet in check.

You are Stressed

Stress leads many of us to eat, whether we feel hungry or not. Stress affects our hormones, which may make us feel hungry long before we should. Even physical stress caused by an injury or an overload of environmental toxins can cause us to feel hungry. A detox program may help relieve stress and lessen your hunger pangs.

You Have a Medical Condition

There are several diagnosable conditions that may cause you to feel hungry all of the time. Having an overactive thyroid is one condition that requires medical attention to determine its direct cause. Diabetes will also increase your hunger levels, so it is important to check with your physician if your hunger levels suddenly increase. Be aware that some medications also increase your appetite.

Squats –

Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips (your toes should be pointed slightly outward). Look straight ahead and pick a spot on the wall in front of you, use this spot as an anchor, looking at it the entire time that you squat. Slowly sit back as if you’re holding groceries and can only close the door to your car with your butt. Make sure your knees do not lean over your toes. Keep your abs tight! Add a barbell or kettlebell for a bigger challenge and better results. Repeat.
