Our expert says:
It sounds as if you may suffer from hypoglycaemia, which causes a drop in blood sugar levels particularly in the late afternoon. Start eating 6 small meals a day (split up the 3 large meals into 6 smaller ones) and make quite sure that you eat something around 4 pm, as this is the 'worst' time if you have hypoglycaemia. You also need to eat foods with a low glycaemic index (click on 'Diet' and 'Diet Basics' and read the articles on the Glycaemic Index). Foods with a low GI keep your blood sugar levels constant for longer. Avoid foods with a high GI such as refined, white bread, rice, potatoes, etc. I would also advise you to go for a general medical checkup to see if you do suffer from hypoglycaemia.
Hope you feel less hungry soon
