What does hunger feel like?

Can you describe what it feels like when you're hungry? I'm not talking about hunge as in starving/food insecurity, I mean regular old "Time for dinner now..." hungry. I've noticed that I'm frequently hungry when I shouldn't be. I think maybe I'm just misinterpreting a sensation as hunger but that it's not huger. So what does hunger feel like? [more inside]

Not depressed, just food obsessed

After decades on antidepressants, I titrated off of them several months ago with my doctor's approval. I feel great except for one thing: I am ravenous and inordinately interested in all things related to food. [more inside]

Today, I was enthusing about a photograph from the surface of Mars, and a friend responded along the following lines: "I find it hard to get excited about it when there are so many starving people here on Earth.

soup kitchen volunteers! can you lend me your recipes, menus, & advice?

I am part of a group that regularly gets together to cook and serve meals at a soup kitchen. Our amazing group leader of many years recently passed away very, very unexpectedly, and we have been struggling somewhat in his absence -- he always just kept everything in his head: set menus, what to buy and how much, where to get the best price on stuff, etc. Can you help us put everything back together?

Why am I insatiably hungry after benadryl?

I take Benadryl occasionally as a sleep aid. It helps a lot, but I always wake up with a weird, gnawing hunger that won't be satisfied. It's far more intense than the hunger I usually feel in the morning--it's almost desperate--and doesn't go away for a couple of hours. Am I crazy? Is this normal? Is there a pharmacological explanation for this? Most important, presuming that I'm not crazy, is there anything I can do to combat it (I'm trying to watch my weight)?

Does low-carb increase anxiety?

I'm doing a nutrition and exercise coaching program through Precision Nutrition, , which basically slowly introduces 10 basic habits and a schedule of workouts designed to help lose body fat and build muscle. One of the "habits" is to eat starchy carbohydrates only after exercise. When I do this, I am really low energy, moody, and anxious. Has anyone else experienced this reaction while doing low carb eating? What can I do to prevent it? [more inside]

Hungry like the wolf, or like someone who's been starving herself for years...

A few weeks ago while I was clicking around a bunch of size acceptance/health at every size blogs, I came across a comment from someone claiming that most if not all recovering/recovered anorexics require more food/calories than someone else of their relative same size who hadn't been anorexic (or maybe it was that they are hungrier? I do not remember exactly). I can't find this comment again, and my Google searches for any kind of study or explanation have not been fruitful. [more inside]

Breakfast smoothies: apparently I'm doing it wrong

I started making smoothies recently with about 200g frozen fruit, 1.5 cups of 1% milk, and a scoop of whey protein powder. I wedge some kale in when I have it, but I happened to be out this week. This makes about as much smoothie as I can comfortably consume. Normally if I eat breakfast (lentils or eggs or oatmeal or cereal or toast and jam or whatever) around 7 or 7:30, I'm good until lunch at 12 or 1 or even later, but since I switched to smoothies, I'm finding that I'm ludicrously hungry by 10am. As in "I would cheerfully kill you for the last quarter of your sandwich" hungry. WTF? Why is this and how do I fix it? [more inside]
