H is for Hungry

I'm famished in the mornings...but am not hungry at all in the evening.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Realistically, I'm doing fine with the amount of calories I'm consuming - it's just that I'm eating 95% of them before 2 PM. I've tried upping the protein content in my meals thinking that that might be what my body is needing.

I'm eating 5 fruits and veggies a day, eating whole grains, and for the most part staying away from processed foods. But I still have a hard time being NOT hungry before 10 am.

Any suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else?

I have the opposite problem of you. I am usually not hungry in the morning and don't want to have any breakfast, BUT by the time 3pm or 4pm rolls around, I am starving!

It's better to eat more in the morning than at night, so I wouldn't complain about that! If you don't eat much for dinner, then it makes sense that you're hungry in the morning.

What do you eat for breakfast? I find that when I have something with eggs and toast, I stay pretty full. Maybe something like an omelette with 1 full egg, 2 egg whites, spinach, and a little sprinkle of cheese, and then a piece of whole grain toast? THat always helps me. If I have oatmeal, cereal, or yogurt for breakfast, you better watch out at about 9:30 or 10:00, because my stomach is roaring!

I eat a mixture of non-fat cottage cheese with a non-fat yogurt. Fills me up for a few hours.
