I ask this question because I find that the hungriest moments for me are breakfast and dinner time.. the rest of the day I am happy with munching on a little of this and a little of that. The downfall to that is the calories add up before you know it.

Hi, I have found over that last week that I'm hungry between dinner & tea. Reason for that was I was having my dinner round 12 instead of 1 / 1:30. I was finding the 5+ hrs between meals a pain if I had nothing to take my mind off my stomach.

Before bed which is why I leave myself at least 500 calories to eat what I want before hitting the sack. A big bowl of cereal hits the spot. Nomnom.

My problem times have actually changed. It used to be that I was always starving right before bed and would have a small snack after dinner to deal with it, but now I don't get hungry at all at that time.

Instead, I now find I'm hungriest at about 11am and again at at around 2.30-3pm. I just make sure I have some healthy snacks on hand and work it into my calorie allowance. Simple! Smile

I am actually hungry the very first thing in the morning. I take a pill at 5:30 a.m. that has to be taken on empty stomach. I drink 20 oz of water with the pill, get ready for work and then eat breakfast about 7:30. Often when I am at work around 2-3 p.m. I start looking for a snack. That is where I agree with Sheonamcc. Healthy and accounted for handy food. Now it is usually a Mini Babybel light or string cheese. I keep homemade pita chips, yogurt, hummus & carrots around most of the time. I'm trying to think of some new snacks if anyone has any ideas!

I am hungriest in the morning because that is generally when I have the least amount of protein. After I have lunch I'm not usually VERY hungry the rest of the day.

I'm the hungriest two hours after breakfast and hour before lunch. Basically I have learned to have more protein for breakfast to hold me longer instead of more carbs, more carbs for lunch or dinner.

I am hungriest before dinner - I often go the whole day without eating as i dont have (dont make?) time to stop and eat. Before dinner i am ravenous and reach for simple and quick eats.
I found that a half cup of fruit yoghurt carrie me through.

Mid morning is my hungry time.Between breakfast and lunch I am ravenous. After lunch my body is awake and usually extremely active. If I have a strenuous workout my appetite is dead until dinner. I'm fine with only light snacking.

I am probably hungriest lunch time because I tend to have a light breakfast. I am less hungry though since I started eating smaller portions but more often (5 small meals) because this has allowed my stomach to shrink down to a normal size. At first it was tricky, but once the stomach shrinks I was fine. I also drink loads of water as this is a natural appetite suppressant.

Before bed gets me every time. I don't like to gorge myself or anything, but I just like to feel satisfied and full and when my stomach is growling because I stopped eating after 6 pm (and it's still only 9:30) I usually cave..

Usually as lunchtime gets close. And 5pm.
