Feeling hungry all the time? If you answered YES to this question, you are not the only one! In fact most of us have gone through this constant hunger phases that makes us feel like we literally have any empty stomach.
Keep watching because in this video, I’ve listed 5 reasons why you still feel hungry even a short time after you ate
No 1: You Have a Fast Metabolism. We all know that guy or gal that eats double or triple the amount of food others eat and yet stays as thin as a toothpick. Some people are indeed very blessed in this regard!
While a fast metabolism is useful for preventing extra fact storage, it requires extra amounts of fuel to work and yes you’ve guessed it–that fuel comes from the food you eat.
A study has shown that 32% of the people have slower or higher metabolisms than the average person and hunger problems are no wonder for these people.
No 2: You eat a lot of processed foods. Processed foods that are extra rich in carbohydrates and sugars like white bread, cookies, pies, pasta, sweets, cause a sudden spike on our sugar levels. This sugar is then converted into very short-lasting energy but afterwards the energy drops and you end up feeling hungrier than you were before. Refined sugar is probably the no1 culprit behind energy crashes and hunger afterwards so you better avoid its regular consumption.
No 3: Hormonal issues.
Women who experience hormonal issues like PMS, thyroid problems and diabetes are more prone to hunger than those who don’t. For example, when your thyroid hormone levels are abnormally high, you will burn calories faster and that will lead to hunger spikes. Diabetes also bears the same effect. If you suspect that this is the cause of your constant hunger issues, perhaps it’s time to visit a doctor and get your hormone levels checked.
No 4: You don’t sleep enough.
We all live in very busy world and sadly, many don’t have the privilege to sleep 8 hours a day. What this does though, apart from other obvious health issues, is that the hormone leptin, which makes us feel gratified, can’t be released in sufficient amounts and in its place, the hormone ghrelin is released, which sends hunger signals to our brains and we are tempted to eat more than what we need to.
No 5: You’re obsessed
Some people are so obsessed with their food habits and latest diet trends, that all they think is what they are going to eat next. What this does though is tricking your brain that you are hungry often when you are actually not.
There are actually quite a few ways to deal with it. Healthy distractions like going for a walk, listening to music, or playing games will help keep your brain occupied for longer so you don’t think of food all the time.
