    if i am mildly hungry throughout the day and go to sleep on an empty stomach and hungry, does this mean im in a deficit?

    i'm eating plenty of food and a decent amount of carbs through the day, but no where near the amount i would / could eat normally.

    week 4 of cutting...

    Could just mean you're eating foods that aren't satietying yet could still be caloric dense

    You can feel like youre starving 40 minutes after a BigMac Combo... It has to do with your insulin response and the coresponding reaction from your hipothalamus.

    The hunger response is by no means an indication of a deficit.

    :wtf: I'm no pro, but I don't think that's the best idea, nor do I think it's right.

    Try eating foods that are low on the Glycemic Index. They tend to keep you full longer.
    Right? Christophers? Ceaze? PurEvil? Someone? Please correct me.

    Sorry, I should have expanded. Having a moderate amount of fat would help with appetite satiety. Protein helps, so do slow digesting carbs. But fat also helps.

    Example given by lyle. Eating a whole bagel vs half a bagel with peanut butter.

    I drink whole milk and dump olive oil in my shakes, so i'm not the one to ask.

    Fat will lower the glycemic response to a meal by the way.

    I was in too much of a calorie defecit (about 1400 calories a day) and I was full the whole day, up until about 30 minutes before a meal.

    it kinda goes both ways...fat is the least satiating of the macronutrients, but it does make you digest slower, keeping you full longer...so i dunno wtf

    but hunger = low blood glucose = fat in blood/being burned for energy

    so i guess, yeah, sometimes
