Holy cow, I could eat a horse!

I'm hungry, I woke up hungry this morning, after a normal breakfast I was hungry, after lunch I was still hungry, and now after dinner I am hungry again, I'm going to bed hungry tonight.

I've been hungry for over two weeks now!!

What the heck is going on? :confused:

I find a similar thing, I seem to be in a perpetual state of hunger -- no matter what I eat. Others call it a perpetual state of gluttony.

That's more flattering than "Human Garbage Disposal".

I'm not sure but if it were me, I'd rather eat the cow (even if it were holy) than a horse.

Try eating several small meals throughout the day and drink lots of water that should help curb your hunger. Or just open your fridge and eat everything in sight.

I personally wouldn't do that as I have a few things in my fridge that have expired and need to be thrown away.

I heard that to get tapeworms out they put sugar on your tongue, and the worm comes up into your throat, they they grab it and wrestle it out! sounds kinda cool, eh?

I wonder if they'll show that on Animal Planet.

Pretty sure this nailed it, or it 's that layer of fat for hibernation thing late mentioned.

I haven't changed my diet recently, but have noticed my hydration during the day has dropped off with the onset of cooler weather.

Over the last two days I've made a conscious effort to drink more water and sure enough the edge of the hunger pangs seems to have been blunted.

Thanks,

T/E

"Holy cow, I could eat a horse!"

If you were in a French restaurant in France, you might truly say

"Holy Cow - I just ate a horse."

Yup, they eat horse meat in France. I think it is silly that we don't eat it here in the USA. It's funny how social bias makes it OK to eat one thing but not another. Cows, pigs and chickens are ok. Horses, dogs and cats are not.

I think the general rule-of-thumb here in the US is that uglier tastes better (eg. crab) and we don't eat the cute things (eg. cats).

seriously if you think you have tapeworms consult A DOCTOR. The sugar thing just sounds wrong. You might be trying to fill an emotional need with food . It could be a sign of depression. James
