Just thought of something. Sometimes it is hard to eat correctly. There are co-ops and we sometimes go to this farm and either work to get a share or pay to get seasonal organic fruits and veggies at a really reasonable price. Sometimes u can get fresh fruits and stuff in bulk when in season too. Like, I take the kids and we pick berries at this joint down the road. Or I'll get a bushel of apples and peaches and freeze 'em. There are wild blackberies and and raspberries if u can find them. This is a good time of yr to start patio tomatoes, cucumber, strawberry plants. U can even get those cheap 5 gal buckets at Lowes to use. There really are ways to eat healthier, it just takes a little more work.
i think you should google the word "Ethiopia".
and i can almost garuntee your "cold" and unquenchable "hunger" is nothing short of having an unfulfilled life and low self-esteem, so tasting and feeling food in your mouth for just a few seconds and feeling stuffed is better than nothing.

I will say it again. I am not obese but I am over weight. I spent most of my life being under weight so its a little weird for me.
I want to ask these superior folks what they think I should do differently to lose 20 lbs.
I eat extremely healthy. Although I am sure the vegans here will tell me to cut out things like chicken, fish, milk and eggs, I eat better than most people.
So Oh wise superior ones who seem to know so much more than I do tell me what I should do since obviously despite my lifestyle I am still a lazy over eater.
Here is what I ate yesterday.
1 banana calories ?
2 slices of swiss cheese calories 120
1 bag of sugar snap peas that I snacked on through out the day total 120 calories
so 240 calories plus the banana.
I just don't have an appetite.
some days I eat more than this but I rarely exceed 1200 calories.
So how much less should I eat to adjust for my metabolism.

You have no idea what it is to feel cold and hungry all the time.
Non empathetic, no feeling, no idea the concept is beyond you.
Always hungry, always cold.
I would not wish this even upon the most vile human lilke Hitler.
A constant hunger and cold will drive you crazy.
But most skinny people have no comprehension of the hunger.
I had surgery to "correct mu hunger".
People who have little hunger have no idea and it is beyond them the insatiable hunger. Maybe people who are addicted to sex or drugs may have a glimpse but the "hunger" is unbelievable.
Gastroc Bypass surgery helps, but the hunger returns and never quite leaves you.
This I pour from my heart so I will not visit the "replies" herein.
Most skinny people have no real comprehension of what it is to be truely hungry.
