Ridiculously Hungry Today

Today I had my fruit for breakfast but by 10 a.m. I was so hungry I ate my lunch early. The hunger was insatiable, it seemed, leading me to realize that all week I've been unusually hungry. I was thinking earlier this week that my appetite has been smaller, but in re-examining the situation I must say that although my meals are smaller, I make up for them with snacks of fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts. I think the reason I'm so hungry is because I've been eating the same three things for breakfast, lunch and dinner day in and day out: fruit, corn salsa, and cottage cheese. A few nuts and a few pieces of dried fruit don't do much except allay a bit of evening hunger; they aren't really satisfying whatever it is that needs satisfying. I think maybe I'm not getting enough nutrition from my limited menu. I took my insatiable hunger as an alarm and bought some hummus tonight. I made a wrap with it, using a large Ezekiel tortilla and adding a small avocado and tomato. Next week I want to make an effort to eat a wider variety of foods in order to avoid this problem. I'm not sure if I'll fast this weekend - if I'm as hungry tomorrow as I was today, I'm not going to torture myself by fasting!

I am going through this exact same thing. Suddenly I don't want my big salads anymore, and I can't seem to get full! I'm staying at least 75% raw, but I'm hungry.

It's been this way since I passed my gallstones two weeks ago, and my body has been wonky since the big detox. I'll be reading your site daily as usual to see what you come up with! I'm going to buy a lot of apples and pears today to see if they will fill me up if I mono-eat them.

BTW, I still can't get on the forum, but I just had my husband try and he can! Grrr!! I have to try to figure it out or post from his PC. I miss it! :)
