When you feel hungry even though you aren't it is usually because you are "craving" something.  Your body has a legitimate "craving urge" because you are depleted in some vitamin or mineral.  It is your body's way of letting you know you need something vital that you are not getting from your normal diet.

Firstly, always eat a lot of green leafy vegetables because these are highest in vitamin and mineral content.  Vegetarians can "crave", too, though and usually crave protein.

Secondly, while waiting for your diet to "fix" this problem, start taking a really good vitamin AND mineral supplament.  You can talk to an herbalist or a naturopathic practitioner and they may do an interview and learn exactly what is missing.

Most common missing nutrients are potassium, magnesium, calcium, and good, lean protein (as well as micro-nutrients which are too numerous to mention and can only be replaced by eating those vegetable I already mentioned).

I hope you start feeling better soon!
