Hunger is an odd thing. When I first started fasting, just the concept of going too long without food stressed me out. The interesting thing is that I feel less hungry during a fast than I do when I'm eating on a normal schedule.

I eat one meal a day (OMAD), and have my normal meal at 5:30 or 6:00pm. I don't feel hungry all day unless someone puts food where I can see it and smell it. But it feels like a craving and not hunger, so I can skip it. If I eat like normal people do on a particular day, I'll feel hungry the next day when I go back to fasting. Then pretty much not again until I go off of it. It's very strange.

When I go off my diet, I can really feel the food that is in my system and it's not a good feeling. I feel much better fasted.
