When Are You Most Hungry?

Most days I wake up starving. It is the reason I get out of bed. Depending on what I eat for lunch, 3 p.m. or so brings hunger my way as well. I believe in snacking because it helps keep those "food swings" at bay.

What about you . . .

If I eat consistently through the day I'm not hungry at any consistent point through the day.

mid-afternoon, from 3-5ish. I used to ignore my hunger pangs but that would cause me to overeat once i got homef rom work. So now i keep granola bars at work...not the best choice, I admit. Maybe should start bringing lots of fruit into work instead.

Mid-afternoon kills me. I'm keep healthful snacks in the fridge at the office like sugar free jello, string cheese, even peanuts, but around 2 or 3, I get super hungry. I also get super pinching myself and taking walks around the building to keep from passing out at my desk.

I'm always so hungry after work (5pm) even though I'll have had a snack around 4. But what I want to know is, what's the girl in the picture eating?? If it's just a bowl of whipped cream and blueberries, hook me up!

Lunch! For better or for worse it's usually my main meal of the day. By 11:50 I'm sooo hungry.

Since I quit smoking I've gained 9 pounds. Its ridiculous. And I dot even eat more than I did. I'm almost thinking about picking up smoking again so I dont keep getting fatter and fatter. Exercising isnt working either. So I am always peckish, but I dont give in to it!

definitely right after work, at about 5/6pm. i usually eat something light then, or even have an early supper.

My hunger changes with my stage in life. In high school I was soo hungry right after school at 3pm, and during I think we all get in the habit of eating waayy late at night, after drinking/studying. So I wonder how that will change this summer in the 'real world'.

I'm a teacher and my lunch break is at 10:45 a.m., when my kids eat lunch. So come 3 or 4 p.m., I'm pretty hungry!

Sometimes I feel like the cookie monster when I wake up, feed me NOW with crumbs flying everywhere. So I usually make a smoothie (fruit, cereal, and milk--I think one of my old coaches called it a bomba?) because I'd rather drink it than have to sit down and eat it. Though at work I've been drinking something from trader joe's (called green protein I think) which tastes weirdly like apple juice but looks like sludge. I like it when I don't want the hassle of a sit down lunch but need the energy.

3 pm. eating Craisans right now. I agree with above posters that a lot of this has to do with being ready for the (work) day to end!!

Looks like we all need some healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks! I personally need something every few hours just to keep the good attitude going. Me with no food = not good.

I'm ALWAYS starving by the time I get home from work (5 PM) but I don't like to eat dinner until 7PM or so...It's so hard not to over-snack!

I eat mini-meals about every 2 hours. The afternoons still kill me. I know it's boredom vs. real hunger so I try to just drink lots of water instead of munching.
