Our expert says:
Seeing that you present BMI = 20,6 which is below the ideal of 22 (for which you would need to weigh 57 kg, your body may be telling you that you are not giving it enough fuel, hence the hunger. The diet you describe is actually a good one and reasonably balanced, so by all means continue eating these foods, but don't starve yourself. Eating plain pasta or bread will not cause weight gain seeing that carbs without fat only provide 16 kJ per gram (the lowest energy content of all the so-called macronutrients). It is possible that you are stressed and are seeking comfort in food, or that your brain serotonin levels are low. To boost brain serotonin levels it helps to eat plain carbohydrates or low-fat proteins, both of which should not cause weight gain. If you are stressed then get some professional help from a clinical psychologist.
