This is going to be extremely weird. I am not pregnant, but i am on medication that causes extreme hunger (megestrol). After a google search i found out pregnant women have high levels of progesterone. Does anyone have tips on how to fight the constant hungry feeling? I have gained 65 lbs and i am miserable. Just this morning i broke down and just wanted to feel full for one moment. its this constant empty, painful feeling in my stomach. I just want it go to away. I'm exercising and focusing on healthy foods. But i spend every moment of the day hungry, unless i overeat. I hope this question isnt too weird!
