10 Reasons Why You’re Always Hungry

You wake up from your bed and the first thing you think about is food. This might not be because of the love you have for food but well, you woke up hungry anyway. You quickly drop from your bed, fly to the washroom to brush and probably wash your face clean. After which you get things in order for a healthy breakfast. Suddenly, after eating breakfast, you feel like you haven’t eaten at all. Does this sound familiar?

During the day, you feel uneasy when your teeth aren’t grinding on anything. You tend to consume snacks more often and sometimes you begin to wonder why you eat so much and can’t even find reasons why you are prone to eating all the time.

There are many reasons why you feel hungry at all times and most of these reasons are health related. Let’s look at ten known reasons why you just can’t take a break from eating.

Reasons: Why You Feel Hungry All the Time and Can’t Stop Eating

1. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation may increase the level of ghrelin, which might be making you hungry. A study says if you deprive yourself of sleeping, you are at a higher risk of increasing appetite and you know what that means. The greater the appetite, the greater the possibility that you might be craving for more food. This must be one of the reasons why you might be feeling hungry all the time.

2. Excessive Workouts Makes You Hungry

10 Reasons Why You’re Always Hungry

I love workouts and if you do too then maybe that’s the reason why you’re always hungry. Workouts are good for our health and we can’t stop since we all know the benefits it contributes to our overall wellness. However, if you’re a workout nerd and you often train more than you should then you have to reduce the time frame so you don’t feel hungry unnecessarily. The more you work out, the more calories you’re able to burn and that also makes you feel hungry. Hence, making you eat more and more.

3. Signs of Diabetes

Feeling hungry all the time could be a sign of diabetes and maybe it’s about time you get yourself checked. Your body may be insulin resistant which is one of the causes of diabetes. Whenever you eat too much, the insulin levels go high. As a result, glucose molecules are unable to enter the cells making your body devoid of energy which only signals your brain to get more food. Let your doctor run a checkup on you to determine the cause before jumping into conclusion.

4. You Might Be Pregnant

This isn’t a problem at all unless you don’t know how you got pregnant, LOL. People tend to eat a lot when they’re in their early weeks of pregnancy. Although some studies have shown that, there are a group of people who tend to lose appetite while pregnant, you might just happen to be part of the group with so much appetite during this period.

5. You’re Always Hungry Because You Eat Too Quickly

Eating is a process you don’t have to accelerate. If you consume your food quicker than you should, chances are that you’ll end up being hungry quicker. Hunger hormones take between 20 to 30 minutes to get to your brain, so if you eat everything on your plate in less than 5 minutes, you’ll be eating more than you should.

6. You Stare Too Much at Food

10 Reasons Why You’re Always Hungry

So, it turns out that you’re a food fanatic and once your eyes catch up on a dish, you can’t stop staring. We all love to taste meals that are well garnished and look delicious. We crave to have a bite even though we don’t know how good it’s going to taste and It’s not like we are hungry either! A study pointed out that when we see “food porn,” it exacerbates our desire for food through a channel of neural and physical responses called “visual hunger.” So, it might not be that you’re hungry but since your brain reacts to what the eye sees, you might be eating what you’re not prepared to eat.

7. You Could Have a Fast Metabolism

In simple terms, your body is burning calories quicker than normal. This could be as a result of workout habits or you may as well be born with it. If this is you, then you’re prone to getting hungry all the time since your body works even at rest. Speak to a doctor for proper diagnosis.

8. Not Drinking Enough Water

Drinking water is an important part of living and this is why you need to find creative techniques or ways to drink more water daily to help you stay healthy and add a boost to your metabolism. When you drink water as often as possible, you end up reducing your appetite property and this helps you stay off food for a while. You might even be mistaking thirst for hunger.

9. You’re Drinking Excessive Alcohol

This is no surprise to me as I have visited friends who actually take shots of alcohol before meals. But if you need facts, then read this article. Drinking too much alcohol decreases the production of hormones that promote fullness. Avoid drinking too often or too much to avoid feeling hungry all the time.

10. Stress
