    Reasons why I get so hungry?

    I wake up hungry, I get hungry before lunch starting around 11:30am and by 6pm my stomach is growling with hunger. I was wondering if anyone is like me and needs 3 meals a day? I don't snack and I try to eat 2200-2700 calories a day I'm a 6ft 160lb guy. My hunger is like clockwork even if I have a heavy carb breakfast or none at all. Strange?

    Could be a micro deficiency. Maybe add more eggs, seafood, liver, bones, dark plants, etc.

    Thanks for the input I eat 21-24 eggs a week, lots of dark vegetables, live not so much, lots of seafood and I'm going to start bone broth soon

    160 sounds underweight for 6' - eat more if you're hungry

    Yes, the reason you are hungry is because you need to EAT!

    The people here like myself who only eat once a day are people with fat reserves to draw on to fuel a whole 24 hours. You don't have reserves.

    3 squares and a snack or two sound like the plan for you.

    I'm beginning to think that I'm not eating enough calories... I try though ha I usually eat between 1lb and 1.5 lbs of meat a day vegetables, avocado, 3 eggs, bacon, butter maybe its time to start making green smoothies with that pretty new Vitamix that just sits there

    How about 6 eggs not 3?

    Put some more eggs in the vitamix with some coconut cream and flavor as you like with fruit, cocoa powder, etc. That makes a good smoothie base. No need to overdo the greenery.

    Make sure to get some seafood in too. And make sure your diet includes some liver if you can stomach it. If not make pate'.
    Liver and oysters and salmon blow stuff like kale and chard away when it come to nutrient density.

    A good snack for you would be a really rich bowl of bone broth. There are several threads around here about making it.

    I'll agree and disagree with PB. Yes eat more and eat 3 meals a day until you are adapted. No, don't snack - it leads to chronically elevated insulin and will interfere with fat adaptation, which is basically just about being insulin sensitive and burning glucose when insulin is high and fat when insulin is low

    Yes sounds good. A dozen eggs every two days.

    I eat about 5 a day - not 6' though.

    Any reason you're avoiding fruit?
