I exist pretty much on small portions of homemade soups and fresh vegetables and fruits. I eat about 1,200 calories a day. I eat very balanced, nutritionally speaking, and I take daily vitamins. I'm hungry usually about an hour after I eat, which is a pretty recent development. Is this normal for this kind of diet? Is my metabolism speeding up or something?

Wow you eat very healthy! I don't know if it's normal, I always seem to throw some sort of fried junk into the mix.

Do you know if you're hypoglycemic?<br />

Is there any protein in your soup?<br />

Maybe snack on a few nuts or seeds for the hunger?

Beans are usually in my soups.

Do you make homeade soup?
I'm not a dietitian, but I think you need a healthy snack later in the day.
I hope you find something that works for you! :)

Best Answer

All of my soups are homemade.

Sweet! I wish I did that!
Anyway, it doesn't sound like you're getting everything you need.
Your body wants something.
I would try nuts, seeds, or dried fruit, as a snack until dinner time.

Add:
I don't know what kind of soup you're making, but you can use oatmeal as a thickener (powder it up, in a blendr first).
You won't taste the oatmeal that much. It will thicken the soup, and add fiber. :)

Wonderful idea!!! I'll try that. I make all kinds of soups, because that's basically what I live on. Potato soup, vegetable soup, chili, vegetarian "chicken" and dumplings, vegetable and rice soup, etc.

I'd start with 1/2 cup blended oats. I think you'll like it!
Blended (chopped up) oats, is also good for your face....just don't leave it on too long, because it can burn.

Best Answer

I love this recipe. I upped the oats. :)

Breads will help, you're leaving out that important starch, it will help fill you better when you eat.

I don't eat much bread, but I do eat brown rice in my soup.

Best Answer

Rice might help, a little more on the side might also be a good replacement filler if you don't eat bread.
