My initial thought was pregnancy too.

But it sounds like you are working out hard, so it is probably just the impact of that.

Perhaps increase your protein intake?

Also could it be a deficiency such as iron? A blood test would show that.

Also, are you drinking enough water? The dehydration signals can get interpreted as hunger.

I’m exactly the same when I go to the gym so I started adding protein shakes to my diet. When I go to the gym I have 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon plus my normal meals and I snack on nuts, seeds and fruit.

In high school when I was swimming 5 hours a day I was alwaysss eating and always starving.

Take the pregnancy test if it’ll set your mind at ease but I honestly think you might be right thinking it’s your workouts!

What’s your diet like? Sometimes when we don’t get enough high quality food like vegetables our bodies are starving for the right nutrients (minerals and vitamins). Are you eating a lot of carbs and processed food? Try eatingore vegetables and see how that helps.

You might just need to change what you are eating to match the amount of exercise you are doing.  If you are eating a lot of carbs, your body burns through them the fastest especially when you are working out.  Adding more protein items to your diet might leave you feeling satisfied longer without adding a ton of extra calories.

When I read the thread title, my first thougt was pregnancy. I was starving and eating way more than usual before I found out that I was pregnant. In your case, it could be because you’re working out a lot?
