    I am constantly hungry. Even after a meal, I want more. I've always been this way, but more so now than I was when I was a little kid. . .

    I'm not eating junk. It's all good. . . fruits, vegs, whole grain. . . good protein.

    Like right now it's 10:30 pm and after dinner, over the past four-and-a-half hours, I had yogurt and strawberries, then I had some peanut butter on whole grain, then some peanuts and raisins. . .

    Right now I want a bowl of Cheerios icon_biggrin.gif

    Should I indulge myself or not. Should I eat everytime I feel hungry. I get between 2,000 and 2,500 calories a day. I could easily eat way more.

    The thing is, I already work out a lot, but I want to keep my halfway decent six-pack and improve on it. . . which will be more attainable if I eat less, not more. . .

    Thanks for the advice

    You sound just like me... I get hungry, I mean hungry! I'm hungry all the time, even after meals (or shortly after). But I feel it's your body's response to your needs, especially if you work out a lot. Especially if you lift weights and are trying to gain muscle mass, eating constantly is good (especially good food).

    Your six pack might get lost a little bit, but it's a natural part of the bulking phase to gain a little fat. Try to balance all the eating with some good cardio and that will help you loose the fat and keep the abs. If you find that you are putting on more fat than you'd like, just cut back on your calories, but still eat 6-8 times during the day (smaller portions).

    FOOD RULES!

    As long as you can distinguish between "hunger" and "satiety" then eat when your body tells you it's hungry.
    If you eat just because you don't feel full (lack of satiety), that's where problems start.
