Mod note: For technical reasons, the initial post in this thread had to be deleted. The post was from FicaR94: Does it happen to you that you feel full and than suddenly very hungry, without gradual increase? It often happens to me, what would be the explanation for that? ************ Reply from NelliePledge: Hi and welcome I only have a limited understanding of science stuff but I think our metabolism as people with ME can be pretty messed up. I struggle with my weight (too heavy). I also have long spells when I am not at all hungry. Unfortunately for me once I do get hungry I struggle to stop eating. Especially sugary food is really hard for me to stop. If I have one biscuit from a packet the rest of the packet will also get eaten. As I’m overweight I’m trying to work with the off/on appetite by doing 16:8 eating and also writing down everything I eat in a notebook so I have to think about it rather than let my on appetite dominate. Obviously if someone has an off/on appetite but a low body weight it is a whole different issue that would need different strategies.
