HELP! I can not stop feeling hungry! I don't know why? I worked really hard to lose the 5lbs. that I was wanting to lose (I was about 156lbs, down to 145lbs.). I am now at 158lbs. again, and I can't stop wanting to eat, and it's all carbs that my body is craving! I worked so hard at diet and portion size and food journaling to lose those 10lbs., then, I don't know what happened, I just got this hunger, and can't stop. I'm freaking out! What's the best way to beat the demon in our heads that makes us want to eat and eat?! I need help, suggestions, anything.
I would repost this in the General Discussion forum. That's where the vets who can help you are most like to find this. I would give you advice, but I'm too new at this to be of any help. Good luck!

Planning meals helps... then don't eat off that plan.
Don't bring it in the house... create a safe zone.
Set yourself up for success with healthier foods, snacks that you love around you.
But ultimately... above the neck work... therapy (highly recommend!)

Not only you. I have seen many guys are trying hard to lose weight but don't want to stop eating somehow. It's logical for the real food lovers. However, I think a well planned dieting can help you in this case to recover your hunger. Good luck!
I find that if I limit my carbs to 30 grams or less a day, I have better results. I do this by following the Ketogenic diet guidelines. You can also follow Atkins guidelines. When I start to allow more carbs, I find that I'm hungry all the time and will eat more. Plus, I log all my food on the My Fitness Pal app to help keep me accountable. I eliminate as much sugar as I possibly can and try not to eat any wheat products or starchy vegetables. I carefully read labels and do my best to watch what I eat. I'm much more diligent now than I was before my surgery. If I get too much sugar, wheat products, or starchy veggies, I find that I get really hungry and I don't feel well--like when you get a sugar rush. Also, when I eat too many carbs, I don't always make the healthiest choices in my food intake, which, in turn, makes me feel sick. If this happened before my surgery, I don't remember it.
No need to starve yourself. Drink Mummy magic weight loss tea 3xday before your meals and you'll definitely lose your extra weight.
