What could be causing my increase in appetite?

chamomileJune 14, 2007

This is my first post here so I hope I am in the right place.

I have always had a small appetite. Lately I find myself constantly eating and have gained weight as a result.

The only thing that I can think of is that I have started to take the following supplements:

-Omega complex ( contains fish oil, flaxseed, borage, safflower)

-Dong Quai

-Green Vibrance Superfood

Aside from the increase in appetite, I also have been getting a really good night's sleep which is actually a very pleasant surprise since I am such a light sleeper.

Does anyone know which of the the above may be causing the appetite increase? I like that I have a lot of energy now but I don't appreciate the extra pounds. :-(

I see no one has yet answered your post. I don't have any information for you either. I would suggest that you speak to your Dr. I would wonder if your hormone's are out of whack a little (thinking you are female), but you don't usually sleep better with that issue. I hope by now you are still sleeping well, have a lot of energy and your appetite has subsided.

Are you under some new stress? I have found I am always hungry if I'm bored in the evening or under stress. If I have quilt or craft projects in the evening, I don't eat too much. Also, if I take my dog for a long walk just before dark, I don't eat as much and also I sleep better.

If these ideas don't apply to you, I suggest that you see your doctor and ask about those supplements. Good luck.
