Waking up hungry. Is this normal? Will it go away? Thank you.
You should never be hungry while you're trying to lose weight. If you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water. A lot of times people are actually thirsty when they feel hungry. Also add more vegetables to your diet. The healthy carbs in veggies will help you feel fuller longer without giving you too many calories. Eating a big salad with dinner will keep you from feeling hungry at night and also eat less of the higher calorie foods.
If you're used to snacking throughout the day, switch out your unhealthy snacks with healthy ones like carrot sticks, celery and other fresh veggies. You can also go for fruits, just be careful not too eat too many as they're high in sugars. A good sized apple, orange, or a cup of berries is a great substitute for chips or cookies.
