First off, I am NOT asking about why I'm hungry after eating a meal of just veggies.
If I go out to eat and have a burger, I'm fine. If I have a burger and fries, I'm fine. BUT if I go out and have the same burger with a side of broccoli, about 10 minutes after I finish I will feel much hungrier than I was when I started. Usually for about two hours.
I have had the same thing when I've added avocado to my burger.
Obviously, this makes zero sense. I'm actually getting a few extra calories, and in the case of avocado, I'm also getting extra healthy fats.
I'm assuming this is not really hunger, but does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? I'm trying to eat at least a little bit healthier, but this makes it difficult.
Thank you for any help any of you can provide.View Thread
