Yesterday I officially jumped into my eating plan full steam. I felt quite a bit hungry all day eventhough I ate a ton. Any suggestions? Sign that I'm not eating enough or just my body adjusting to the healthy and my minds sugar addictions way of conning me into eating the non-healthy? Maybe I should eat more protien to combat?
I personally think hunger is not a sign to eat. It's good to feel hungry. Grehlin is a hormone that is the main cause for your hunger. It's produced in stomach and pancreas mostly. The hormone stimulates hunger. It's most active in the morning, and before a meal. Also when fasting. After the meal it's logically decreased. Now, what's great is that Grehlin is also a very Active in growth hormone stimulation. When there is grehlin, there is more growth hormone production, which equals for more muscle if you want to simplify it.
Eating less carbs could be one of the reasons you are feeling hungry, since your blood sugar levels are way more stable, by which I mean there is less insulin when there is less carbs. When your blood sugar goes up, it also comes down. When it comes down, Grehlin is produced. The change is small, but this is my theory of the issue.
Hunger isn't the main way of controlling your eating. If you are eating proper amounts already, there is no reason to add feeding if you don't want to. I think your body will adapt. Or atleast you will learn to control and cope with hunger.
