It has been very informative to read all the posts, and I have learned quite a bit about what to eat and what not to eat and all. Thanks!
It has been exact two months since I stopped eating all the sugars and starches; I eat one serving of oat bran for breakfast, that's all the grain I eat for a day.
My only problem is that I am so hungry all the time particularly in the morning and in the early afternoon that I often eat every hour! This morning, I tried to space it out more and got extremely weak and felt faint too, and it was only a little over an hour after the last snack.
I don't know why i'm so hungry. It might be due to hormonal imbalance, i'm guessing, since I have severe pms symptoms, such as increased appetite, cravings for sweets and salt, irritability and fatigue. I know these all sound just like hypoglycemia symptoms !
Or could it be the chromium gtf supplement I started taking two days ago? I take those because I read they may help glucose utilization.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to whether I should eat by the clock, like every two hours, or would it be ok to eat whenever i'm hungry?
I apologize if my english might be a little difficult to understand as i'm from japan. Thanks.

You want to try to feel not hungry, but not necessarily full, if you mean by this "stuffed" or something. I suppose you could try those oils. Coconut would be best because it is very beneficial to the body, but it tends to be expensive.
