speaking of food

Do you have foods which make you hungrier instead of filling you up?

For instance, James and I both feel this way about cereal. Also, apples and raw carrots do it to me. With cereal, I feel full for a while, and then have a raging hunger not too long after (same with James). With an apple or carrots, it seems like I get hungrier while eating them!

Cereal fills me up, but apples do nada. I can eat more chinese take-out than any other cuisine, but I don't think it makes me hungrier per se.

I know it sounds bizarre, but eating good fats (for me, that's mostly coconut oil and butter (definitely in combo with carbs)) makes me feel reeeeeeeally full for a reeeeeeally long time. I swear it. Maybe you could try it for a day or two and see what you think? (Trouble is, the good coconut oil is not usually available in stores and must be ordered online and is quite expensive. I swear by it; though, I really do.)

By the way, I love your new icon. Hot, hot, hot!

if a food is really carby, it signals your pancreas to crank about a bunch of insulin, which takes all the sugar from that food and shoves it into your fat and muscle cells. all of that removal of sugar from your bloodstream creates a state of low blood sugar, rendering you 'carb crashed' and possibly hungrier than when you started eating!
