How do you tell if you're genuinely hungry or just bored?
It's like I could literally just eat constantly and fucking never feel satisfied or even full. It's infuriating and driving my family insane too.
Real hunger starts when your body begins to break itself down. That takes a couple to a few days depending on body type. Hunger pangs have more to do with your normal schedule than anything else. Try fasting for a few days.
Eat 6 small meals a day. Try to eat at the same time everyday. Before each meal drink an 8 oz cup of water. Try to eat healthy stuff with something filling like brown rice, oats, or potatoes, chicken, etc.
Since I eat bigger meals, like a turkey sandwich with a side of grapes and carrots, I'll do this:
Drink a cup of water, eat half of my sandwich & sides, and drink another glass of water after. If I'm still hungry I'll eat the rest of my food.
If you find yourself still hungry between your meals you can snack on healthy stuff like celery, carrots, blueberries. Or you can drink a glass of water or milk. Or you can try chewing on gum or sucking on a button to keep your saliva going and your mouth busy.
How do I keep that from costing a fortune?
Today I've eaten a bowl of porridge, two bowls of noodles, a thick cheese sandwich, a pastry and an ice cream while out with my sister, an entire box of sliced ham, boiled eggs, pea soup, talkkuna, literally goddamn everything in the house. And I'm still hungry.
If you're a teenager you're probably still growing. try staying busy and see if that helps, anything that you can easily get absorbed in and forget about real life.
Also, if you restrict snacking, you'll get used to it and then not want snacks. More you snack, the more you want snacks. It a mechanism the brain has to get more food while it's plentiful, which makes sense when you're in the wild but is obsolete in our modern society where food is always readily available.
Thats not how the stomach works you idiot.
You eat a lot. You stomach has become very elastic. Even when full it can stretch more so it wont feel 'full'. Youre eating more just because you can. thats called being a fatass.
Secondly that growling sound doesnt main you are hungry. Its your stomach being empty and shrinking. The rumbling is due to the gases. Your stomach rumbling doesnt mean you are hungry. Just your stomach is finally not being stretched out.The rumbling goes away after you get used to not always having your stomach filled. Secondly you have trained yourself to associate a stomach thats not full with hunger since you are a fat ass and always eat then.
Im getting so triggered by this. I teach nutrition but nothing upsets me more than fatass who feel the need to eat because they can.
I wont even explain that last point. Basically your body works by habit though. Eat at a scheduled time at the right calorie intake and you body will become accustomed to it. Thats all.
Yes but sometimes it isn't cooked enough. Like how people like their steaks medium rare. Or let's say someone has tapeworms and doesn't know it. They don't wash their hands properly after using the bathroom and before making you a salad or a sandwich. Then they pass eggs onto you.
How do I stop constantly craving food?
Nobody ever touches my food but me since nobody else ever cooks around here.
Can it be other meat than beef? We don't eat steaks on a regular basis.
>Nobody ever touches my food but me since nobody else ever cooks around here.
Unless you go out and kill the animal yourself, or harvest your own produce, someone has handled your food. It doesn't even have to be meat.
>Can it be other meat than beef? We don't eat steaks on a regular basis.
It can be anything, really, that has egg contact.
Yes it can be fish, beef, sheep, pork, rabbit, ect. Pretty much anything.
But you've never eaten out or had anyone else prepare food for you in your life? Didn't you just say you ate icecream while out with your sister?
Sometimes people just get unlucky and you'll need to have it removed (sometimes with medication, sometimes through surgery). Even if vegetables come pre-washed, wash them vigorously. Never eat rare meat. Make sure you don't drink contaminated water.
That aside, you probably don't have a tapeworm. You can try starving yourself for a few days and then place a plate of food in front of yourself. If you feel something trying to come up and out of your throat, you've got a ravenous worm inside of you. If you don't, it's likely an issue with your stomach and brain.
we picked some up from the grocery store.
And saying nobody has ever cooked for me would be a hyperbole. it's just that I haven't had something someone else cooked for a long time before this started.
>How do I stop constantly craving food?
Literally in my last line. Its called discipline. You wont stop craving food till your body realizes you arent a fatass anymore. You eat 24/7 so your body tells you to eat 24/7 because thats the norm for you. Eat at a regular schedule and dont eat outside of that schedule no matter what. Once your body recognizes your new pattern you wont crave food outside of those slots as much.
There is no easy cheat to stop being a fatass. You body honestly expects you to eat a shit ton and theres nothing you can do about that until your body realizes you are wrong.
There only 'cheat' available is drinking a shitton of water instead. But honestly if you had the discipline to drink water you wouldnt be a fat ass. Drinking water will fill the stomach and you can kinda trick the brain into thinking you are full. Like you wont really trick it but when you get hungry and you drink water first the craving will subside because at that moment your stomach is filled with water.
>skinny fat doesnt exist
Do you have visible abs. Because honestly theres no reason not to at that weight. You really need to hit the gym. Its a lot easier to eat right when your body actually needs to eat.
