Dear Ice Babe
You don't say what kind of 'strict diet' you have been using (very-low-energy or high-protein or low-fat or what??), so it is difficult to judge what is going on with your health. If the energy and/or carbohydrate content of your diet is too low this could be the reason for the hunger and the food cravings. So I can only recommend that you lose the last 5 kg with a balanced diet which contains enough carbohydrate to prevent constant hunger and food cravings. You can try eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and also increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
