It’s one of those days where you’ve had a really filling breakfast and you think, “Maybe I’ll have lunch a little later today.” But an hour before your usual lunchtime, you’re already hungry and counting down the seconds before you get to eat again. Less than two hours after a big lunch, you’re extremely sleepy – but you’re starving again! Does this sound familiar to you?

We take a look at some indicators that could explain why you constantly feel like eating, and what you can do to curb that empty feeling in your stomach.
