In my family I eat a lot, though I'm very slim (thanks to my metabolism), but sometimes i have moments when I'm not hungry and others where I get too hungry. but now I'm in that period of having a great hunger for something. I had dinner some hours ago but i feel the need to have a snack, I did but I don't feel satisfied. Now I'm eating my way out through chocolate with tonsils crunches yummy. But still my hunger is not satisfied. Do you have these kind of moments? How do you deal with it? How could I satisfied this hunger?

Lucky you if you can eat and still be slim. In my family we also eat a lot and if mys mother prepares lunch I can say that I am not going to eat because it just something that can't be done. So I gain on weight when I go home, always. And the bad thing is that I like to eat myself too so even when I am not at my parents house I still feel hungry very often and sometimes I just feel like eating although I am not that hungry at all. And then I just eat everything I have in the house but nothing can satisfy me. I have a friend who washes his teeth every time he puts something in his mouth because if you have can still taste something that you ate before you feel that hunger or that urge to eat even if you are not hungry at all. I started doing that too and sometimes when I eat something and I forget to wash my teeth I really realize it makes me eat even if I am not hungry.

i eat a lot and stay slim because I'm used what, how and when i eat (not to mention that I have many days of activities that help me burn the food i eat). But I also got a little thicker when i was in Italy, their food and their program of eating at an exact time put some pounds on my, many have noticed it. But I'm now I've lost again some kilograms. About the washing your teeth it won't work on me because of the taste of the tooth paste :D. But when I brush my teeth I can't eat nothing because all will taste bitter sour. But what is your favorite snack, what do you eat exactly? I'm going now to the kitchen and make me something and I want to know what do you do to satisfy your hunger even for 10 minutes. By the way I'll tell you another secret of mine of how i gain slowly weight. I drink a lot of water and I try to avoid eating late. And did you know that potatoes are good for your metabolism and that a swiftly walk through the park burns the fat. My life routine has these basic rules and granted me the chance of not getting too fat, but it gave me the hunger too.

Its all in your head!(not your stomach.) All you have to do is tell yourself you can wait till the next meal. Binge eating like this can lead to ill health. Get a hold of yourself, and realise its not in your stomach but all in your head!

Hahaha, it's not that "the Hulk hunger". It's just a hunger for some snacks, though it lasts only one day (yeah am weird). I know what's healthy, my dinner wasn't satisfying enough and I get only once a time this hunger (I was with a doctor and he said it's normal just my body is a little on the rush, agitated like I am:P). The next day it will disappear, it's my metabolism sometimes it burns all the food but I'm taking this advantage to clean my body. I was just curious if there are other ways do deal with it and if there are other people who have this hunger. Mind control I use this for pain (ok for hunger too but rarely). But Thanks for for help.

By the way I don't stuff myself until I drop, when i have the need to eat something I make myself a heathly sandwich( with black bread, vegetales oil butter and lot's of fresh pilled tomatoes).

I am exactly like you in the way that I can eat a lot and stay slim due to metabolism. I go through phases when I am not hungry at all and phases when I am hungry all the time as well. My problem is that if I don't try and eat regularly my blood sugar plummets and that is not fun at all. Eat small meals throughout the day, that is how I stay full.

This is what i always do, but the hunger that I'm having is a type of hunger that comes at least once in a week or more. It's an unlimited hunger. thanks for your help but now it's too late here for me to have a snack. I think i'm going to eat some peanuts.

Hmmmm. Sounds like the munchies to me song of the sun. (I told you I wouldn't be able to think of you any other way... I hope you don't mind!) The only cure for munchies is to munch. I wouldn't mind a few of your chocolate tonsils crunches, too bad you couldn't pass the bag over this way!
