It has been 30 minutes since your last meal and you’re already back in front of your refrigerator looking for something to eat. Why are you so hungry? Your stomach feels empty and you are unsure as to why.
There are quite a few reasons why you may be experiencing increased appetite. For instance, if you have a fast metabolism, your body requires more food, resulting in increased hunger; if you are dehydrated, your brain may be confusing thirst for hunger; and if you’re not getting enough sleep, it is likely your appetite will spike.
