You tend to eat all the time

Your body needs energy and other essential nutrients to work properly, so you should provide it with healthy foods and not skip the main meals of the day. When your body doesn’t have enough energy because you haven’t eaten at all (or haven’t eaten the right foods), it will send some signals to your brain and you will feel hungry. The nutrients responsible for supplying your body with energy are carbohydrates. If you follow a low carb diet, you may feel hungry all the time and it can lead to weight gain. 

“People on a low-carb plan are often hungry because they simply omit carbohydrates, instead of replacing them with healthy fats, which is the key! A low-carb, low-fat eating regimen is a recipe for disaster,” said Bjork.

So, if you want to keep your body in good shape, you should focus more on eating the right foods. To be more specific, you should consume more good carbs, in addition to other important nutrients of course, and you can opt for more fiber, such as bananas, carrots, broccoli, lentils, quinoa, oats, almonds, chia and dark chocolate. In fact, fiber can help you feel fuller for longer. 

However, before trying a new diet or changing something in your lifestyle, you should talk to your doctor! He or she will better understand your needs and intolerances. In fact, people who feel hungry all the time may suffer from other medical conditions as well, such as insomnia, dehydration, nutrient deficiencies or malnutrition, diabetes, stress, depression, hyperthyroidism and so on.
