We've been eating pretty healthy at home for months now. In the last 1-2 weeks, my H has been ravenous within an hour of eating dinner. He's not pleased about it at all. He says he's hungry enough to eat a complete second dinner (and has twice) and merely having a snack of a smoothie, peanuts, or even pie doesn't cut it.
I'm at a loss. I serve pretty large meals and I think they fill me up quite well. Average dinner put on the table and shared between the two of us:
*Marinated grilled chicken breasts
*four cups of steamed broccoli
*three cups of a rice-quinoa blend lightly seasoned
*bread for him
*light cranberry juice for both of us
*sugar-free pudding for dessert.
Any advice? I feel like he shouldn't be hungry so maybe it's a nutritional gap or something inciting cravings? He hasn't increased or decreased his activity at all lately, the only change has been that I'm using heart-healthy oils and keeping the heavy cheeses, milk, and butters to a minimum. The poor guy is getting pretty discouraged though and I suspect he's going to bed hungry which just breaks my heart.
