Hunger Pains

Much like earlier this week when I found myself eating sushi, last night my hunger pains were astronomical! Ever since I started my gluten free diet it seems that my body is digesting quicker than before. (Or maybe I'm spending more time walking around than in the bathroom)

Quick on the go meals are the hardest for me. I'm also on a low sugar diet, so I can't just snack on an apple or blueberries like before. So I've started keeping an arsenal of veggies in the fridge so I can whip up something quick.

Last night I chopped some baby bok choy, garlic, onion, squash, and mushroom; threw it in the pan and cooked until hot. I squirted on some BBQ sauce and dug in. An hour later I was hungry again! Now that my stomach can actually digest what I'm eating, it's insatiable!

I had the same problem when I first went gluten free, I was hungry ALL the time! Even my boyfriend said after I made gluten free spaghetti the first time that he woke up the next absolutely starving! And he is not typically a breakfast eater. I use it as my excuse to eat all the time now!

I like that excuse!

I'm relieved to read this post (I know you wrote it a loooong time ago!) as I'm really suffering with hunger pains. The first week gluten free I was fine but the second/third weeks I'm finding I could eat a scabby cat and the hunger pains are extremely painful, even waking me up at night. Like you said I think my body can digest the food so it is emptying my stomach quicker. I'm hoping it will settle soon.
