You’re def­i­nite­ly in good health and you def­i­nite­ly haven’t been on extreme diets, but you’re always hun­gry?

We’ve found out what exact­ly might be mak­ing you feel that hunger—and hon­est­ly, some of it is incred­i­ble!

Lack of sleep

The lat­er we go to bed, the less like­ly it is that the deep sleep phase, when the body gets real rest, will be long enough. And as a result, the lev­el of the hor­mone lep­in, which is respon­si­ble for the feel­ing of full­ness, drops sig­nif­i­cant­ly, and the lev­el of ghre­lin, the hunger hor­mone, increas­es. In addi­tion, accord­ing to the results of a study con­duct­ed by spe­cial­ists at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Chica­go, the effect of lack of sleep is sim­i­lar to the effect of tak­ing mar­i­jua­na: we also feel uncon­trol­lably hun­gry. Many, many, even more.

Protein deficiency

The more pro­tein you have in your break­fast, the longer you won’t feel hun­gry. And vice ver­sa: if you are used to choos­ing car­bo­hy­drates for break­fast or skip­ping the morn­ing meal alto­geth­er, you will eat much more dur­ing the day. It’s that sim­ple, yes, yes.

The habit of eating low-fat foods

Monoun­sat­u­rat­ed fats are not only essen­tial for healthy heart func­tion — although they alone are enough to reg­u­lar­ly eat nuts, fish, avo­ca­do, olive oil and dairy prod­ucts. In addi­tion, fats help the pro­duc­tion of sati­ety hor­mones, and there­fore we do not want to eat longer. Or, on the con­trary, we real­ly want to eat — if we deny our­selves these healthy prod­ucts.

Lack of water

Remem­ber the advice to drink a glass of water every time you feel hun­gry? It works not only because water fills the stom­ach, but also because thirst is often “masked” as hunger. And if you don’t get enough flu­ids, you will feel hun­gry all the time. By the way, researchers from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Illi­nois found that just one extra glass of water per day can help you burn 205 more calo­ries per day, as well as sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce your intake of sat­u­rat­ed fat, sug­ar, sodi­um and cho­les­terol.

Constant stress

Con­stant, reg­u­lar stress caus­es the lev­el of the hor­mone cor­ti­sol to remain con­sis­tent­ly high. This is bad in itself: ele­vat­ed cor­ti­sol has a bad effect on the endocrine sys­tem and can even change insulin resis­tance. In addi­tion, increased cor­ti­sol stim­u­lates increased pro­duc­tion of the “hunger hor­mone” — and you want to eat all the time. If this is your case, be sure to learn how to cope with stress — for exam­ple, through med­i­ta­tion.

Long breaks between meals

Four to five hours is the opti­mal break between meals. If you force your body to go with­out food for a longer peri­od of time, be pre­pared for the fact that your metab­o­lism may slow down and you your­self will expe­ri­ence hunger more often.
