Eating A Lot, Hungry All The Time, But Why Am I Not Gaining Weight?

Postby Corbmac » Tue Oct 03, 2017 6:50 pm

I am a single mom w/a toddler, juggling caring for my dad w/cancer, being a student, and watching my neighbors dogs during the day.

It feels like I'm eating enough, but I don't gain weight. So I started eating fattier foods to see if that would add weight. It does not. I feel hungry all the time even after eating a meal.

What is going on?

You will have to sleep extra. By the way in which, why do you wish to attain weight? Are you so thin? This isn't my industry. If you could have slept and eaten greater than you wish to have, I suppose you are going to attain weight inside a brief period. Don't do bodily undertaking an excessive amount of.

Hi, Betty:

Have a medical checkup (have your thyroid checked).

Some people are like you, eating a lot, always hungry but not able to gain weight...but they?ve always been that way because they have an inability to make fat reserves. It could be genetic (one of the parent is the same) or maybe they were born premature.

If you always been that way, there?s not much you can do, except get a good education and a good job because you have to eat like a man, which is hard to do on a woman?s salary.

If it?s a new thing for you, it?s possible that you could have developed hypothyroidism because you gave birth. 7% of women will get postpartum thyroiditis (PPT) within a year after giving birth. The first stage is hyperthyroidism (you lose weight and get real skinny), then your thyroid either returns to normal OR you develop hypothyroidism (you gain weight and get fat). This is a permanent condition in about 20% of the woman developing hypothyroidism because of postpartum thyroiditis.


You could also have been exposed to a parasite, especially if you have a toddler that plays outside with sand or dirt or because you take care of the neighbors? dogs. Again, your doctor should test you or might figure out what is your problem by asking you a long list of question about symptoms. If you have a parasite, then your kid should also be tested (and maybe the dogs too).
