    How to deal with hunger headaches?

    Im so used to eating junk food in excess that now that when I eat less I get headaches. (The same type of headache you would get when you skip breakfast, lunch, etc or wait too long for the first meal).

    I eat a good 2300 calories from good food, high in protein, but during this pandemic I've been eating lots of EXTRA chips and ice cream which probably total to 3500-4500 calories per day.

    Decided to eat just the good and skip the ice cream but man it sucks ass.

    Breakfast
    - Chicken breast (150)(20g)
    - Almond milk (225)(15g)

    Lunch
    - Steak and rice (650)(50g)
    - Protein shake (240)(40g)


    Snack
    - Two yougurts with almond (450)(30g) (one serving of almonds, literally 12 almonds is 200 calories)

    Dinner
    - 4 eggs with a potato (280)(28g)
    - Beans (250)(5g)

    188g protein and 2300 calories

    To me this is barely any food and its already 2300 calories smh.

    Im 250lbs at the moment


    Im good until after my snack when i get this extreme hunger at the end of the day. Not sure wtf to eat. i like tuna and its filling but I need at least 2oz to feel anything and I dont want to get mercury poisoning. I would swap the chicken to dinner but I hate chicken, its groce and for breakfast Im not hungry at all thats why its easy to eat a small amount.


    Any tips?
    -Some people say good things come to those who wait, truth is, good things come to those who work..... who work later.....who work harder...... who are willing to go further than anyone else to get them. If you're waiting for good things to come to you, you'll be waiting for a pretty long time.

    Don’t think I’ve ever had a headache from hunger...

    Are you not eating fruit or veggies?

    And no, 12 almonds is not 200 calories... more like 25-30almonds.

    Not really. Sometimes brocoli and im not a fan of fruits. To be they’re just a bunch of calories of sugar, they don’t even fill me up at all. I tried eating apples, oranges, bananas, blueberries as a snack, didnt work

    more veggies will give you more fiber and help you feel full longer

    Swap out the protein shake for real food even if it’s a cooked veggie egg white omelette

    What do you mean ‘didn’t work’...?

    We’re talking about your health... eat more fruit and veggies... they will make you live longer.

    Who gives a damn about sugar from fruit? Do you have any idea how much fruit you’d have to eat in order to have the sugar content be an issue?

    In addition to what Adam & Snails said, I think you might be eating less than 2300 calories. I got migraines very frequently when my anorexia was at its worst, but eating at CONSISTENT times & including more fruit/veg/fiber at each meal cleared it up. Every now & then, I’ll get a headache still when I skip a meal or go too long without eating while subsequently doing a high amount of physical activity. It’s typically just due to low blood sugar. Also, how lean are you? Is it possible you might have issues with blood sugar regulation or be pre-diabetic?

    Edit*: @ 250 lbs, you should probably get your blood sugar & A1C tested to rule out diabetes if you don’t get it checked regularly.

    Never gotten a “hunger headache”. A few diet related headaches i have gotten due to : caffeine consumption (or lack thereof), wild simple carb fluctuations, dehydration, wild electrolyte fluctuations (even just sodium)
