Lately, like the last week or 2, I've noticed a significant increase in my appetite. I am literally always hungry. I could eat all day long if there was food in front of me.
And the hard part is that at work, I can snack all day long. But if I don't have anything to snack on, I sit and feel hungry and it is annoying! I mean, why!?!?
I find myself getting really excited when I get to work in the morning cause I can eat my breakfast! And then I'll usually eat half my lunch before lunch even comes because it is just sitting there on my desk. And then I eat the rest of my lunch at 12 (and believe me it's hard to hold off that long). And then by the time I get home at 6:00 I am ravished...
I'm not sure if it's out of boredom... my job is REALLY boring most days and I think maybe I eat so that I have something to do. Because I do notice that when I'm at home and actually have stuff to do, I am eating less and don't notice being hungry so much.
What can I do about this? What are tips that I can do to keep myself from snacking? I mean, the obvious answer is to not bring in snacks.. but then I feel annoyed because I am hungry (or bored??)
So far I haven't really gained weight, but I know it will happen if I keep this up.
