Good heavens you guys. I’m having serious issues. Like SERIOUS. I literally cannot stop eating. It’s all I think about, all I want, and even when I finish eating I’m thinking about my next meal.
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?!
Nothing has changed in my diet habits. Still eating at the same time, still eating typically the same stuff, and still doing about the same amount of workouts. SO why is my tummy constantly rumbling?!
Just take a look at my how much and when I’ve been eating lately…..
Breakfast is around 7AM. Before breakfast I enjoy my coffee at 6AM. This has been the schedule since highschool
frothy almond milk coffee alongside protein pancakes topped with homemade bloob jam and PB
I shove those babies in my mouth, then head out the door either to work or for a run. If it’s a work day, then by 10AM my tummy is screaming at me for a snack. On days that I run, I’m done by 9AM and scouring the kitchen.

After lunch my appetite slows down, for all of a few hours. I can make it from 11:30 to about 2, then the ravenous beast comes back around.
And then it’s dinner time at around 5PM. Once dinner rolls around, I’m pretty much sick of eating. Is that even possible? Well I guess it is, because even though I’m hungry for dinner, I literally have zero will power to make anything. Thus my dinners end up looking like this.
I wish I could tell you that’s where it stops, but it doesn’t. I usually end up having a scoop or 2 of PB, and maybe even half a Luna bar if I’m really feeling hungry. Good lord that’s a lot of food!
I’m trying really hard not to totally freak out about my recent increase in food, but it’s getting pretty hard. One or two days of this ok I understand. But it’s been a week! And it’s not getting better! I’m trying to pick the most nutritious things I can, thinking maybe it’s because I’m not getting enough of something, but I’m pretty sure all my bases are covered nutrition wise.
I guess at this point all I can do is be proud of myself for not restricting. My tummy rumbles, so I feed it. I’m drinking water like crazy too, and that doesn’t seem to be helping, so my body definitely wants food. And I guess I just have to keep feeding it, and hoping some time soon my appetite slows!
Any advice on how to tame my crazy tummy right now?!
Do you freak out when you feel constantly hungry?
