any of you guys know how to make a food craving stop?
I've emptied out the entire fridge again and it's driving my family insane but I still want to keep eating.

get sunlight (if you're in a winter zone, shit sucks)
suck on candy, don't eat it
to limit how much you eat
put snacks in a bowl, like chips , bag cookies, pretzels, etc, so you don't end up eating an entire bag
only eat one of everything a day, as in don't get more than 1 bowl of chips, move onto pretzels, cookies, whatever, just so they don't run out.
I'm in a winter zone, there's no gum or candy in the house. We don't keep chips, cookies, pretzels or anything. I keep eating the meat and cheese and noodles and all other "people food".
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, pea soup, talkkuna, literally goddamn everything.
I'm about 130 pounds.
You should count the calories of all that shit together. I'm sure you'll be surprised, one way or another.
A pasty and an ice cream, sounds average. I mean the average person eats a lot of snacks or candies and sweets.
One cheese sandwich and two bowls of noodles, depending on how big the bowl is, that sounds like it would be about one big meal.
Porridge sounds like break fast.
I guess the pea soup and sliced ham would be dinner.
I don't know what talkkuna is.
You won't get fat from this, but if you consistently eat like this you should be a little heavier, maybe 150 - 160lbs.
talkkuna is one of those traditional white people foods that caused the mass fleeing to Americas. It's basically a mixture of all sorts of flours, mixed up with sugar and buttermilk.
I'm 5'6 and with my frame I'd be obese at 160.
I can't tell if I'm feeling lightheaded or just overthinking.
Do you have health insurance?
This could be a symptom of something parasitically awful, no joke.
Alternatively, your stomach could just be stretched to where your signal for feeling full is ridiculous.
I have the opposite problem. I kind of fall into a trance while working on my studio classes and forget to eat, so I have a very small stomach. Moderately sized meals make me feel sick.
Fiber can be usefully implemented as a cheap supplement, but it can also be found in many vegetables.
I'm >>26372213. I don't need fiber supplements because one of the few meals I can enjoy without pain is salad. Maybe you could expand your veggie tastes? I'll spam some awesome recipes if you want. They'll fill you up with relatively few calories, but the base issue of wendigo-style hunger will remain.
want to stop hunger? Here's some advice from /fit
use the following:
and you will no longer feel hunger, you can also look up yohimbe
While taking ephedrine I sometimes forget to eat all day if I am really focused on something, because I never feel hungry.
Health care is free where I'm from but my mental issues make it a struggle to get it. Is this a life-and-death matter?
If I was somewhere where I could buy cigarettes, I'd be somewhere where I could buy meat, and I'd buy meat. I'll buy meat tomorrow.
If it's a parasite, there might be a comorbid infection or complication that really fucks you up. Believe the medical illustration-track anon. Visit a doctor and have some blood tests.If nothing else, your anxiety will be calmed somewhat by the concrete knowledge that it is just your stomach's stretching that is causing this eternal hunger issue.
As for veggies, essentially yes.
Do you want recipes?
Holy jebomole, that's my case too. Although I'm gucci with fat meat and other heavy food I can't force myself to eat "normal" portions. Also can eat once a day and feel no downsides beyond slight "you should probably eat" feel. Tried to grannyforce myself to gain some weight, ended up eating enormous amounts of food every day for a month (forcing down my throat literally) and gained like 0.5 kg (1.1 pounds) of mass. Quick metabolism be damned.
Adderall, or to a lesser degree any stimulant like nicotine or caffiene.
I have a hard time even remembering to eat when I'm medicated. But I would see a doctor anyways if this is out of the blue to you.
>a physiologically difficult time?
what counts as one?
I'm scared they won't let me donate again. I like helping people when it means I don't actually have to do anything.
Hmm. You can go to a doctor cheaply and express your concerns over a bizzarely large hunger, so you probably should despite the psychological cost. The verdict would be a large payoff, mentally. That would also let you avoid Red Cross bullshit because you care about helping people. That's pretty cool.
As for difficult times, are you experiencing dramatic transition in your life? Are you consistent with the stereotypical symptoms for depression? How are you sleeping/eating/feeling?
Thankfully, I totally dabble in psych lit so I can give you some broad parameters. Disclaimer: please see a professional if an issue is identified.
I've had depression all my life so I can't really tell the difference.
I'm also kind of autistic so I have a really high pain tolerance. I used to do a lot of understatements considering my physical state as a kid, I'd tell mom I hurt my hand and she'd be like "uh huh" and keep working and half an hour later realise I'm fucking covered in blood.
Apparently I do that with mental health, too. Save that there is no blood, there is no objective way to measure it. I'm just told that a normal person never resorts to cutting themselves as a form of mood regulation, as if I'm supposed to know that automatically.
Well, this is an odd turn of events.
I'm a high-functioning apie, so I get your issues with human interfacing on a deep level. It's so difficult to model their expectations and motives, right? We all feel things, but it feels desynchronized from the modal form of human existence.
If healthcare is cheap where you are, I would go to the relevant doctors and state your issues in an objective form, using as much tonal urgency as seems feasible.
