Our expert says:
The stress your are exposed to may very well be the reason why you are so hungry all the time. When the human body is exposed to stress, it makes a number of hormones such as cortisol (which is similar to cortisone) and this can interfere with your blood gluose control and stimulate your appetite. I would recommend that you do the following: a) consult a clinical psychologist (your dr can refer you) to help you through this difficult period and the teach you methods (e.g. biofeedback, relaxing techniques, etc) to cope with the stress so that your body can relax and stop producing these hormones, b) take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement such as Centrum or Supradyn Forte for about 6 weeks to boost your immune and your nervous system. If you could possibly fit in some gentle relaxing exercise like yoga it would also be beneficial.
There are so many stress factors in your life at the moment that it would help to get some help in coping with them.
