I'm in my 2nd week... first week was pretty great not much for hunger pains..

This week I've been hungry!! I'm drinking water but I have a question...

I've heard ketosis curbs hunger, so does that mean I'm out of Ketosis?.

I've also heard that hunger means your body is working hard to burn the fat?.

I am hesitant to become a "daily weigher".

Just to let you know.......if you stay on plan it gets so much easier. I am never hungry. At times I feel I can't get all of my food in. Hang in does get easier...

I drink between 3 and 4 liters of water a day which helps tremendously. I've noticed that if I don't drink at least 3 liters I tend to have a bit more hunger than usual...

It does get better... I am at the end of week 8.... If I remember my experience... by week 3, for me... very few hungry days... infact...

Good luck to you!..

I have to say that I had a few really hungry days on the 5 and 1. I tried to figure out why but since I stayed 100% on program, I could never find a rhyme or reason for it. I just stuck with program on those days out and did fine...

I think it is pretty individual. I've heard of some people with mega-awesome losses who are 100%ers and say they are always hungry. I've heard others who say that they are never hungry....

I think that you will notice a pattern as you go through the program. By the way, many people lose a whole bunch of weight during the first weeks and then hit the brakes for a week anywhere from week 2 - 5. If this happens to you, Don't panic. It'll come off..

I don't track my food to the nth degree. I follow the program, measure, watch the condiments and eat ten almonds every day. I'm not a huge loser but I am feeling great!.

You will find your balance. Good luck!..

I remember having a weird hunger around about that time. I started Sept. 1. It went away after a couple of days...

How about you post your menu, activity, and water intake and we can see if there are any mistakes being made? Sometimes people make mistakes like only eating 1 serving of green in their Lean and Green and that's why they are starving...

I have days where I am STARVING. When this happens, I usually choose a lean that has more fat in it such as 80% lean ground beef. This is because fat satisfies the body somewhat. Also, by adding in a little fat to the lean meal naturally, you avoid temptation of off plan foods. It works for me, and you know what? When I seem overly hungry during the week and I do this, I usually lose at least 3 pounds. I dunno....just works for me. I think when we are hungrier than normal it is because our body is burning fat and is sending the brain a message to increase calories to make up for the loss...
