What is your definition of "low fat" though? If you normally eat 65% calories from fat and you ate 40% calories from fat today, it may seem like a low fat day to you, but that's still a pretty high fat day. Also, how many carbohydrate did you eat? If I eat high protein but low fat and low carb, I'm hungry all the time. If I eat low fat and low protein and high carb, I'm hungry all the time. However, if I eat high protein AND high carb, I stay full nearly as well as if I eat high fat and high protein. The key to satiety to me is to have higher quantities of two macronutrients. Going high on only one will just make me hungry. FWIW, this is what I consider a high fat day:
And this is what I consider a low fat day:
You said you ate low fat and not much protein, and you make no mention of carbs, either. It just sounds like you didn't eat anything all day, in which case I'd be hungry, too
