    Lately I have been noticing that I'm more hungry after I eat than I am before I eat. I get hunger pains. It doesn't matter what I eat, healthy, not so healthy.

    This happens to me when my blood sugar swings widely in either direction, and if I've eaten something I shouldn't have I always feel hungry 10-15 minutes later -- with growling stomach and everything!

    Have you had your glucose checked recently?

    Are you sure it is hunger pangs and not a 'stomach acid', reflux or another condition? I had similar symptoms and ended up with my gallbladder out, after a very very painful couple of episodes. Started with reflux. Had to change the way I ate, smaller meals more often during the day, and use Zantac. Husband also had issues, his much different and involved the esophagus. He is still on Previcid (very small dose) after a couple of years. If this is a possibility, get medical attention as taking things OTC may mask the condition, if there is one. Hopefully, it is nothing to worry about.

    Are you also drinking and urinating more often? Get a fasting blood sugar, especially if you are. The "polys" are classic signs of diabetes...polyphagia, polyuria, and polydipsia.

    Absent any health problems, maybe you should fill up on fiber. It would stay in your stomach longer and keep you from getting hungry.

    Don't be afraid of fat as well - it can make you feel full more quickly, it can keep you feeling fuller longer, and a little goes a long way.
