    Cure for Excessive Hunger
    Grace1122 posted:
    Hi Ladies,

    Do any of you know of any special foods or drinks that help with the excessive hunger? I have to eat every 2 hours, even in the middle of the night and I can't take it.

    PLEASE HELP! Does this end?

    Oh my gosh, I hear ya! I woke up last night because I just had to have a pb&j. It is very annoying to say the least!

    I guess just try to choose foods that are high in nutritional value, and not just empty calories. I kind of just eat what sounds good.

    And yes, it does end. It did not last the entire pregnancy for me the last time.
    Grace1122 responded:
    Thank you for replying. Knowing that it doesn't last throughout the entire pregnancy really gives me hope.
    Shani_girl responded:
    I hope it doesn't last! I never had this before. I eat everything but mostly unhealthy stuff. I am going to try today to eat healthier . Maybe try to eat more proteins and that will stick to our bones more. LOL

    I hear you Grace, it's VERY annoying especially during the middle of the night.. for my night hungers I usually have a snack size ziploc full of grapes and a bottle of water on my bedside table... I found grapes to be the easiest thing cause it doesn't hit my stomach like a a ton of bricks, nor is it heavy.

    GL I hope you find something

    I am constantly hungry, too, but so nauseous all the time that most foods don't appeal to me. I just bought a huge bag of raw almonds at Sam's Club, and that seems to be helping, since they're a source of protein. Otherwise, most of my snacks are canned fruit and cheese sticks. I can barely stand any meat right now.

    I KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKIN BOUT. It is so annoying, I have to eat so often that I don't know what else TO eat anymore.

    But I'm not a big meat eater, but I've noticed the past couple days when I eat alot of meat my m/s isn't so bad. Also, and I know its not healthy, deep fried foods really help me. I think bc they are so greasy and sit in your stomach longer so you feel fuller longer.

    I'm really getting annoyed by constant hunger, I am going to be the size of a whale!!!
    Shauntrell responded:
    Girl no there is nothing to help you stop nor slow down excessive hunger. I try to eat nothing but healthy food, I was still hungry all the time; I've tried to eat unhealthy foods and I am still hungry. I just combined the both through out the day. 6 small meals a day and I don't wake up at night hungry. That's about all I can contribute. Hope that helps. LOL

    Cliff bars, cereal and PB&J are my go-to's.
    Sab217 responded:
    This cracks me up... I was JUST telling DH how I have been starving all day. hahah! I seriously haven't stopped eating all morning. It has been crazy.

    My fix-alls are string cheese, grapes and bananas. I was a big fan of Cliff bars too, Sherri. But they haven't been sitting too well with my ms lately.

    When I was pregnant with my twins I called them my little vampires because I had to eat on the hour every hour.. I would even make breakfast at home and then have to stop on the way to work because my hunger was all consuming and if I didn't eat something there is no way I would have made it!!

    Well now I am almost 7 weeks pregnant (and I am convinced its just 1 this time) and this constant hunger thing is starting again! My husband has loaded me up with snacks to stash in my car, my office and at home.. I live off peanut butter crackers because I cant eat much at one time because I get nauseous..Good luck!
