Hi all! I have been on and off this site for a few years now and successfully lost each time (and only went off and gained because I got pregnant twice). I'm back now and I have been happily losing 0.5-1lbs a week, eating about 2300kcals while breastfeeding. Haven't felt hungry or deprived (shouldn't at 2300kcals really. I'm only 5'4 and have about 30lbs to lose), but the last couple days I've felt famished. I would finish a good sized meal and immediately feel hungry. I am just getting back in to normal monthly cycles and recognising the signals my body gives and I'm wondering if I'm at a specific point in my cycle that causes me to want to keep eating? My baby isn't feeding any more than usual, so that can't be it.
Anyone else in tune with their body signals and know what might be causing this? I don't think it's purely mental, as I've heard my tummy rumble a couple times after a good hearty lunch of beans on toast with cheese. 😊
