You don't mention what this 'new healthy eating kick' entails? Have you drastically reduced your energy intake? Have you cut out all carbs, and not just the sugar in your coffee? Are you very active? I presume that when you say that you "are eating all the time", then this means that you are now eating 5-6 smaller meals a day? There are so many details that you don't mention which could affect your hunger response. Drinking plain black coffee should not affect weightloss, because caffeine is a stimulant and on its own it will increase your metabolism sightly. If this new eating kick means that you are eating a variety of healthy, low-fat foods, then give it a chance for a few weeks, to see if you are still hungry all the time or not. If the hunger persists, then you diet is probably too low in energy or omits essential foods, such as low-GI carbs. You may have to adjust your food intake so that you stop having hunger pangs, because the latter will probably sink your diet.
