All right, I know this is a problem that many people wish they had, but I’m actually trying to put on weight (I’m 5’10", 150 lbs) so maybe putting this out there will help.
I am almost always hungry. What I mean is, I can eat a full steak dinner that makes me feel so full I want to throw up, but then about an hour later, I am extremely hungry again whereas the people who ate just as much as I did aren’t anywhere near hungry. I eat at least five times a day, taking in no less than 4000 calories a day. I once counted my calories for one day, which actually resulted in me eating more, and it added up to over 6000 calories. Yet, I weighed myself the next morning and was still at my stable 150 pounds. I am not a very active person; I’m very laid back. How is it that I can eat so much food day after day and not get past my 150-pound plateau? I workout with weights four times a week (no cardio; not needed) and my muscles are noticeably getting bigger, yet my weight is stuck at 150 (I’ve tried several different scales, so I know mine isn’t broken).
I guess my main question is, what is up with my appetite? Why am I always hungry? And why can I eat so much without putting on any weight? By the way, I only go #2 once a day, so I know all that food isn’t going to waste (no pun). Come to think of it, as I sit here typing this out, I’m chowing down on a big plate of pasta. Oy. Food’s too expensive.
