I'm a female in my early-forties. I am very thin. My problem is that I am always so hungry, with painful hunger pangs, especially at night. During the day, it's not so bad. I don't always eat breakfast, but I eat lunch and dinner. But even after a good sized dinner, I get very hungry within an hour, and then I'd eat toast with cheese, brown rice, beans, mashed potatoes, eggs, meat....all wholesome foods, but I'd still be starving within 30-40 minutes. I am literally running out of foods to eat---I eat so much I'm tired of the foods and my own cooking. And the hunger pangs are so great that I wish I could just drink whipping cream or whatever is liquid and fast with minimal water. I can't drink liquids at night otherwise I'll use the bathroom all night and won't get enough sleep. I try to eat fairly healthy (ie wholesome, but not low-fat).
I am not stressed. When I'm stressed, I can't eat and lose my appetite. But right now I'm not at all stressed. I am just so hungry. I can't put on weight---a life-long condition. I have been tested for hyperthyroidism and it's negative. And I'm healthy, just skinny. I suppose I have a high metabolism. What are people with high metabolism supposed to do? It's hard to concentrate or sleep with the hunger pangs.
