Oh yes, it is a Ruben's thread... who else?
This is the deal, hungriness use to be something that would set up *gradually*. You would feel a little hungry first, then a little more hungry, and so on. But now it is like a split second change. One moment I'm fine, not hungry at all... and the next I'm hungry like if I haven't eaten in days.
When this "sudden hunger" strikes, it is incapacitating. I can't think of anything else but food. It comes with a belly ache and stomach growls. It doesn't let me think. Any task being performed at the time (internetjoring usually) has to be put to stop until satisfying nutrients are consumed.
I've been doing some research on the topic. Apparently there are well documented cases of "sudden hunger" in several medical boards. Going by the most common causes, Rube could be:
2) Overworked? (LOL)
3) Depressed? (nah)
4) Medicated? (nope)
5) Dibetic? .... oh crap... now I'm scared for real.
When I read the diabetics possibility it caught my attention because I know overweight can lead to that. I've been gravitationally challenged lately so I ran to the scale. Back in 1998 I hit my record weight of 250. Then came the "great weight loss of 2009" and I went back to 150. That was 100 pounds lost in a year by staying away from sugar and riding the bike daily. So I checked....
To my surprise, I'm only weighting 192 pounds. I thought I was a lot bigger than that. I sure feel like it. No doubt, lack of exercise will screw you up. I'm sure some bike riding regiment can put me back in shape. But back to topic, this "sudden hunger" thing is getting annoying.
I read somewhere that sometimes you have a deficiency of xyz vitamin or something, and you get hungry because is the body's way of letting you know that something ran out and needs refill. I went to the pharmacy today and got me some multi-vitamins. Lets see how that works.
...gotta go, I'm hungry again...
