    I've never been a big breakfast eater. I am in the third day of completely changing my diet, and one thing I have done is started eating breakfast. Nothing elaborate, but I try to keep it around 400 calories and pretty healthy.

    The thing is by late morning I am absolutely famished. My stomach is growling and it is a major distraction. It has been like this all three days, and I feel a lot hungrier than when I did not eat breakfast.

    Is this normal?

    Dude.....after a long night of sleep your body needs nutrition....protein curbs hunger....try eating eggs.....cream of wheat or oatmeal made with milk...melt some natty p....natural peanut butter in it......if you eat bread...toast....make it multi grain......take a mid morning snack like 1/4 cup of nuts will kill overeating...IN IT'S TRACKS....hope this helped....BUD

    Eat WAY WAY more than 400 calories for breakfast. I have no idea how much more because I don't give a shit about calories and never bother to look at them, but 400 calories seems extremely tiny.

    ...and eat more dietary fat.

    You've introduced a new meal into your day; the more meals (granted they are small meals, which 400 calories is) you eat per day the faster your metabolism is going to speed up. This is perfectly normal.

    ^listen to da king.

    Also, try to eat more wholesome foods it'll speed up the metabolism even more. Your body exerts more energy to process natural wholesome foods, as opposed to process...well, already processed food.

    And, try taking a healthy snack (nuts, fruits, etc) to eat between breakfast and lunch.

    Metabolism increase = amount of food eaten, not number of times eating

    Metabolic discounts on protein and to some extent fats (meaning your body has to consume energy to digest them - 15-25% of the caloric content of protein, 5-10% on fats) are the reason food increases metabolism.

    While that is true, it's also true that if you eat more than your body can metabolize, the rest will be wasted. That's the purpose of eating more small meals instead of less large meals.

    This is a good thing; your metabolism is working efficiently. How about a small snack at 10:00 am?
