Why am I always hungry

I Want More,Why?

Some people have the problems with their appetites, not being able to feel full no matter how much food they eat. Regardless if they eat healthy or junk food, whenever they stop eating, they start feeling hungry again, as if their stomachs are completely empty. This case of excessive hunger is a known eating disorder and it is often a sign of a more serious, underlying condition.

Reasons behind Excessive Hunger

Often, people tend to eat when they are stressed, convinced that food will provide them comfort and relaxation. Thus, once they stop eating they feel stressed again and, therefore, hungry once more. Also, many people eat when they have nothing else to do. Boredom frequently gives birth to hunger, therefore leading to this phenomenon. Depression as well as smoking and alcohol withdrawal periods all may cause excessive hunger. Additionally, some medications you are taking may trigger hunger as their side-effect.

The list does not stop here, since many other things may lie behind this unsatisfiable hunger troubling some people. Many people eat when they are thirsty, because they misinterpret the signals their body sends to them. Those who are marijuana abusers may experience hunger quite often.

In some cases, the causes may be grimmer. Having said that, numerous different diseases and health complications may trigger these hunger abnormalities. Diabetes, low blood sugar, Grave's disease and tapeworm infection are just some of them.

Interestingly, the media may influence our hunger. Namely, we live in a material world where everything can be sold and bought. What is more, system of values gets lower and lower and we are all just a market for someone's business. Thus, frequently, we are shown images which are supposed to invoke psychological and physical cravings for food or many other things. Subsequently, commercials may make us hungry as well.

Pregnant women claim to be hungry most of the time. However, this is normal, since they have an additional life to feed inside their organism. Alternatively, stuffing yourself senseless will surely result in your stomach's great future expectations, and, if next time you eat smaller amounts, it will want more.

Finally, those who exercise a lot need more food since their bodies absorb all the nutrients and burn all the calories they give them before the workouts. Hunger after excessive physical activity is normal. Also, in order not to feel hungry, you need to eat on time. You need to have at least 5 smaller meals during the day, each one rich in vitamins, healthy fat, minerals and proteins. This way you will surely be full and satisfied during the whole day. Eat when you should, not when you feel hungry or starving.
