TOO HUNGRY!!!

  1. TOO HUNGRY!!!


    So I went from 183lbs to 167lbs and since Iíve hit my current weight Iím RAVENOUS all the damn time. I do IF just to help balance the calories, eat clean for the most part, include a cheat day here and there just to not deprive myself of good food but I donít go overboard and binge.
    Itís just the issue now is that Iím trying to eat at 1,500-1,700 calories a day but no matter what I do Iím constantly hungry, nothing fills me up! Also if I donít do cardio I stop losing weight.
    Bench-225
    DL-315
    Squat-185
    Iím not sure what my 1RM is, these are just what I can do for 5-8 reps.


  2. Regards the feeling hungry the only tip I have is to eat masses of fibrous veg bro, you can stack plate loads of it for low calorie numbers......I notice a massive difference in my hunger when I’m away from and it’s harder to do this.....

    On a separate note have you had a lower back/leg injury?

    If not you definitely need to prioritise squat and deadlifts for a while - bench is solid but with that bench number your squat and dead should be way way higher......

    I actually have. I got hit in the right leg with a stray bullet about 2 years ago. My tibia (shin bone) was crushed and it went through all muscle but stopped right behind the skin. Actually just had another surgery because the muscle in my calf was herniated where they couldnít stitch it from the damage before so I just had that done about a month and a half ago. I have to be rather careful putting too much weight on my legs unfortunately.

    Yeah fair enough bro, sucks as obviously it’s limiting you smashing them big muscle groups (which would in turn burn more cals).....

    Yeah but thatís the thing that motivates me to start lifting in the first place! Couldnít afford physical therapy but I could afford the gym membership! Used to walk with a cane. Anyways though as far as intensity goes though I try to get higher weight or at least as much as my leg will allow and rep it out as much as possible to compensate a little.

    Awesome brother, would have been easy not to bother at all but your pushing it as much as you can.

    Are you able to do single leg variations (split squats, lunges etc) with lower weight/higher rep just to keep/create muscular balance?

    Yeah, just have to be rather careful is all but for sure I can still do them.

    That’s cool, will help you start to push more weight quicker as you fully recover.

    Good luck bro

    Thanks man!

  10. Diet sodas help me out a lot when I’m cutting. Craving something sweet grab a Diet Pepsi

  11. Steak keeps me fuller then any other protein source, also drinking a big glass of water before my meal helps me fill up faster. A big side of veggies with my steak helps too, mmmmm steak

  12. A few things that might help:

    1. Leafy green veggies - low in cals, high in fiber. You can eat a lot for little cals.
    2. Veggies high in fiber - broccoli, green beans, etc.
    3. Foods which you have to add water to, I will get into this reason next (oatmeal, cream of wheat/rice, rice, etc.)
    4. Lots of water, even if that means upping your intake. When I get hungry, I will drink 20-30 ounces of water without stopping. You stomach might extended a little, but it will fill you up for a while.
    5. Carbonated drinks.

  13. TOO HUNGRY!!!


    Serotinergic agents always kill my appetite. Not saying to go on an ssri. But 5htp seems to work well for this purpose. Also low doses of citicoline can reduce appetite.

  14. Don't forget cocaine, that will keep you from eating, sleeping and gaining weight lol

  15. It's amazing to hear that transformation from 183lbs to 167lbs.
    Feeling hungry is quite common when we are struggling with our weight. All you can do is to insist on it and get used to it. That's how I get through. Drink a lot of water or eat some fruit and high fiber veggie could satiate the hunger.
    Don't quit the cardio, if you feel the hunger much after the workout, replenish your body with the healthy food.

  16. Try getting all your protein intake for the day from sheeps liver

    That's 650g of liver per day. It will give you 170g of protein and around 1000kcal, giving you plenty of spare calories to eat from other things

  17. lucky bastard. Id love to eat clean and be "TOO HUNGRY".

  18. Do you need to eat at 1500-1700 a day? Only reason I ask is I've been cutting since mid April, 1st 8 weeks a did a balanced diet cut, which included 200g of carbs a day and lost 14lbs. Past 5 weeks I went keto and lost another 12lbs. Throughout the last 15-16 weeks I've been eating at circa 2000-2100 kcal a day regardless of the diet.... Maybe you are under eating? I started at 196lbs and am down to 172lbs. Training is 2x weights session and 2 X intense boxing a week. We are similar size so you could possibly up the calories a bit!

    Everyone is different in regards to calorie intake. If OP is struggling to keep fat loss going with his current calorie intake, increasing calories probably wouldn't be the best strategy.

    @Brain5ick congrats on your progress so far - your weight loss is impressive. How long were you dieting for to drop the weight?
    All the info above is solid. I think salad and leafy green veggies is the best recommendation for hunger. I struggle with this as well, and eating lots of salad has always been helpful to keep me feeling full throughout the day.

    I would also suggest a stimulant like caffeine or yohimbine to help with appetite. Coffee works well, and you could also consider a thermogenic supplement like Oxymax, Fitmax, or Bloodsh3d. All of these products have worked very well for me with controlling appetite

    Thanks man! Iíve been cutting for about 1 1/2 to 2 months now. Iíve actually been doing this all on ZERO stims because of a blood sugar issue Iíve been having lately. Stims increase the rate at which my blood sugar drops at very low doses and it hasnít always been like this. I used to do about 200-240mg of caffeine in the morning and another 200-300mg pre workout and was fine but recently itís been making my sugar drop unpredictably which sucks because I miss coffee haha. Doctor just wants me off for awhile. On the weekends Iíve been upping my calorie intake to about 1,800-2,000 calories to keep my metabolism on its toes and that seems to help with the lack of eating most days. Now sadly Iím not the biggest guy to right now at 166lbs my muscle definition still isnít where Iíd prefer it to be but Iím set on losing as much fat as possible before I start a lean bulk. Performance is better than usual in my opinion and Iím feeling pretty good in the gym other than feeling like death after cardio lol but thatís most of us. Some food Iíve been loving lately is zucchini and squash! Spinach with vinegar is huge for me as well as Cauliflower with buffalo sauce. Iím going through sooooo many bags of veggies just trying to keep my appetite in check but it could be worse. Iíll keep you guys updated!

    Do you get the same reactive hypoglycemia when you eat sugar?

    It depends on how much I eat. Sometimes if it drops low I need to eat simple sugars and fast burning carbs to get it back up but it wonít stay up for long if I donít introduce at the least a bit of protein and a complex carb to draw things out a bit. Sometimes it will randomly drop and thatís an issue Iím trying to figure out now. I usually carry glucose tablets and fat free gummies in my gym bag haha.

    Honestly with the full context of everything you've told me, including the hunger and the cardio issue, you sound pre-diabetic. Obviously I recommend a zero carbohydrate diet to treat this. You really need to go and see a doctor and get some fasted blood tests done

  25. I eat 1500 or less calories a day. Tricks to stay full are black coffee/green tea two-three times a day and drinks lots of water. I do 8-10oz. The other thing is eggs. If you're doing IF you can also slam raw eggs occasionally to fight off hunger. So if I have a 6-8 hour window for eating, just eat, slam a few eggs, couple hours later or whenever you're hungry, slam a few more, then have your final meal of the day.
