3 reasons why you are always hungry

If you are one of those very relatable people who seems to be hungry an hour after eating a substantial meal, fear not, you are not alone. Many people suffer from ‘constantly hungry’ syndrome and there might be a number of reasons behind the problem, some simpler than others.

  1. You are not getting enough rest

According to Health Magazine, a lack of sleep can lead to weight gain, ‘substantial research shows that if you shorten or disturb sleep, you increase your appetite for high-calorie dense foods.’ Poor sleep patterns increase our need for unhealthy foods and this could lead to other health complications such as diabetes down the line. Monitor your sleep and make sure that you get enough of it.

  1. You are eating too man carbohydrates

Carbs are just the gift that keep on giving and not in the best way. Refined foods and carbohydrates are absorbed into the body as sugars. This means that consuming a high-carb meal will result in elevated blood sugar levels, which will then rapidly come down and leave you feeling hungry again. A vicious cycle then forms that starts with eating simple carbs and ends in the same way.

  1. PMS

Yes, Premenstrual syndrome strikes again. According to a study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, ovarian hormones can affect premenstrual compulsive eating. The last two weeks of the menstrual cycle can take a toll on a woman’s diet. Food cravings, which are generally related to sugary, greasy and salty snacks spike during the period and are sometimes necessitated by mood swings and irritability.
