  • hungry often

    I've been happily back to eating primal for about a week. I notice that I get hungry again quickly though. I feel as though I am eating plenty of fat and calories as once. When I am done a meal I feel full, but then am surprised to feel hungry again like an hour later. I'm not complaining about it but just wondering why. Is it that my digestion is just working super effectively? However, I thought protein and fat took a long time to digest and that fat burns slowly. Thoughts?

    Are you male or female ?
    How tall are you, how active are you ?
    Do you know roughly how many calories you eat on a given day ?

      I'm 5'3, female, 110lbs. I am pretty active- go for 2 walks a day while carrying my 9 month old. I also either do yoga, swim, run, or something like that daily. I also breastfeed. I have no idea how many calories I eat but I feel like it's a lot...I don't hold back too much

        You are burning major calories. How often is DC nursing? You may need a small snack after each nursing session for a while. Be sure, also, that you are drinking enough water.

            I hear breast feeding burns a lot of calories. Put it this way. When my sister did it she was in better shape after breast feeding than she was before she even got pregnate!

            Also realize that hunger has a lot to do with what you are used to. So if you change your pattern of meal size or frequency it will take a few weeks to get used to the schedule.

              Breast feeding--there is your answer! This is very general, but nursing moms need about 500 extra calories/day, especially if you have a baby that nurses a lot. Eat up! If you don't get enough nutrients/calories your milk supply will suffer.
