    Losing weight - hunger?

    Is it bad to let yourself feel hungry for a couple of hours when you're trying to lose weight long term? I want to lose about 6 kilos over the next couple of months, and have always been renowned for eating a lot (was never fat, and my weight never fluctuated ), so one of the things I'm trying out is reducing my portion sizes and frequency - I tend to find that my stomach really feels empty and it's quite distracting (can you tell I haven't done this before?) - does it mean my metabolism will pack it in completely or is it okay to get my body used to eating slightly less?

    Okay it won't let me edit, but I meant to say I was never "fat" but never in supermodel condition either.

    Bro, losing 6 kilos (13.2 lbs) in a few months is not that hard. Having said that, starving yourself is not the way to go. You'll end up losing muscle rather than fat.

    Also, depending on your current state of fitness, you may want to reduce your body fat and get lean muscle rather than losing weight. The best way is to

    1) gradually reduce your daily food intake,
    2) as you do that, break it into small rations (5-6 per day), and
    3) make sure that most of your dinners/late snacks are rich in protein.

    If you combine that with a proper exercise plan, you should be able to drop body fat in a safe and permanent (or almost permanent) manner. There are a few supplements out there than can give some teeth to an existing diet and exercise plan.

    But this is all moot if we don't know a few things about you.

    How old are you?
    How tall are you?
    What's your current weight?
    Are you trying just to lose weight, to get lean and defined? Are you planning in adding muscle mass in the future?

    It's possible you're just thirsty too. A lot of people confuse "My body is telling me to have a glass of water" with "OH GOD I NEED TO EAT A HAMBURGER".

    I've been hearing this more and more lately. Supposedly a lot of people have a hard time distinguishing between hunger and thirst and find that if they chug a lot of water throughout the day, then they don't "feel" as hungry. Until I see some documented research by a respectable institution I'm inclined to think it a load of bollocks.

    Oh. Never heard that one before either. I'm inclined to think it's bull as well, but there is so much **** going on (more and more boys with ADD, more and more girls developing mega-boobs at a waaaaay too early age), who knows.

    On another note, what I've read (and I've practiced) is to drink lots of water before eating as a way to control the size of your food rations. The sensation of hunger is first triggered by a feeling of emptiness and it takes quite a long time after the stomach is full for the brain to determine one is not hungry anymore.

    That's one reason behind overeating (the other being a total lack of discipline or knowledge about eating healthy).

    Sis, you should keep your meal frequencies the same (or more, so it's like 6 if possible), just smaller portions.

    Try to cut off as much junk food as possible from you diet, too. Junk food is the Devil.

    I pretty consistently lose about a kilo a week if I keep a regular diet. I eat about 2-300 calories meals whenever I get hungry, which is generally about every 2-3 hours. With that and my regular workout of 2-3 hours a day 4-6 times a week I lose weight pretty consistently. Everyone's different, of course.
