[QUOTE=AznDesire][COLOR=Blue][FONT=Times New Roman] Hi, I don't understand what's wrong with my body. I constantly have to eat every hour. In the morning, I would eat three bowls of cereal with milk, a fruit (i.e. apple, pear, orange, or a banana), yogurt, and some juice. Then an hour later, I'm hungry again. For snack time, I would eat some more yogurt, 2-3 different fruits, drink either some more milk or orange juice. It's like this every hour until finally at noon I would eat a sandwich (i.e turkey sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes and whole wheat bread) or some rice with chicken and vegetables--or whatever is available; on the side, more yogurt and fruits with milk or juice as a drink. Then at 5 PM, I would eat dinner and eat more fruits and yogurt with milk or orange juice. Every hour, I get hungry and eat fruits or yogurt and drink more juice. Some times I would eat so much that my stomach would hurt but my mind tells me i'm still hungry. I don't understand what's wrong with me.

I'm an 18 year old female (turning 19), am 5'2 and weigh 110 lbs. I stretch every morning and do a bit of exercise (i.e. jumping jacks, crunches, etc.) for half an hour to an hour. I work out every weekend for 1-2 hours consisting of running on the treadmill for 30 mins and do strength training exercises for my legs, and work with free weights for my arm (I like having a toned body) and finish up with crunches.

:confused: Do I have something wrong with me neurologically such as low levels of serotonin (I don't drink or do any other type of drugs) or is it just because something is wrong with my diet. I eat more than five servings of fruits per day, and I get lots of protein from milk and yogurt as well as soy milk. I don't know what's wrong with me. No matter how much I eat, I'm still hungry. I get a lot of fiber, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins (from the juices I drink and foods I eat), omega fatty acids (from the flaxseed and codfish oil vitamins I take daily), and I definitely have more nutrients than my body needs, but still don't understand why I'm always hungry. Sorry if this post was so long but I'm just so frustrated :mad: because I waste so much money buying food. If I could save all the money I spend on food, I would have so much money saved. Please help. Thank you all very much.[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE]


I think it would be an excellent idea to see a Dr. I just recently read something about this - there's some sort of...disorder?? wherein the brain doesn't get the message that the stomach is full. Put it to the Dr just like that and I know he'll know what it's called. And I'm sorry, I don't remember what they do for it. Based on all you're eating, being hungry after an hour doesn't make sense. But I also agree that you need more protein, especially because of all the exercising you do. Carbs are definitely more easily and quickly digested Good luck to you!
