I dont know why I'm so hungry today
ive been trying to cut down on coffee and sugar
because of the hyperactive effects

and now I'm even more hungry !
ive eaten mostly healthy stuff today
which is usually the way out of the hunger

now ive just had dinner and I'm starving again !

Hi Zoe,

Drink water, my lovely. Chances are, you’re thirsty (our bodies send the same signal).

Water is very filling. :hug:

Oh, good lass!:clap: I have to really try hard to keep my water intake up.

Maybe a bowl of cereal? Weetabix is very filling because it expands in your tummy...

Well if you're a woman I'd say periods. Idk, difficult to relate rn, I'm all nauseous and full without eating. Maybe your dinner wasn't filling enough.

I suspect they're designed to make you hungry... :scratcheshead:
Wheat swells in our stomachs and it does give a satisfyingly full feeling - the milk will also play a part in that, I guess.

@Zoe1 : I have my Wheety bangs at night. I don’t have a stomach for breakfast until at least three hours after waking. X

Okay. It's just me then. I don't let them into my house. I'll just end up eating a whole packet at night with half a litre of milk.

It really varies, Zoe. I only eat one healthy, home cooked meal a day and unfortunately I’m still trying to reverse my body clock so I sleep at night...so I guess I need extra calories as I’m busy and not sleeping.

Zoe, did you know you can drop a stone in weight just by sleeping properly. Another incentive for you and I to beat our insomnia!
