I keep getting hungry

Recently, I've noticed I keep getting hungry even shortly after I eat a meal. I cannot remember it being this bad years ago and hard to figure out when this started happening to me.

I've had depression for over 20 years. Wondering if others have this issue or know if its related to depression?

Maybe boredom more than anything?

Re: I keep getting hungry

Depression can cause that and it can cause you to eat less too, but it definitely can be boredom, I do this especially when I get distracted. I try not to eat bad food when I do this. I would eat very small snacks when this happens. If you eat a lot of meat or protein bars it will fill you up. Try to keep busy.

Are you taking a hungry type of antidepressant?

Re: I keep getting hungry

I'm a stress eater for sure. But now I get home at 6:00 and eat constantly until 9:00 due to my work schedule. I went from having a 5 minute commute to having a 30-45 min commute (depending on traffic).

Re: I keep getting hungry

That can be a sign of atypical depression, especially if you are desiring comfort foods/carb-laden foods.

That can be a sign of anxiety, manifesting in a way that is usually referred to as boredom.

That could be emotionally-driven eating so as to achieve a semi-dissociative state.

That could be the presentation of metabolic syndrome or diabetes.

There could be a disruption in your thyroid function.

You could be eating vegetable-heavy Chinese food, lulz.

You could be deficient in one or more nutritional areas.

You might think someone is a damned good cook.


Cheers,
Ian
