Not only am I always hungry, but the only reasons I stop eating are:

A) There is no more food
B) Everyone else has stopped and it's obvious I am just shoveling
C) I feel my stomach nearly exploding, or I physically can't swallow

I can't really remember every feeling satisfied while eating a decent amount. I always eat as much as possible or just leave still hungry.

To make things worse, I can't lose weight. Whenever I try to exercise it's like nothing comes off. If I run daily, lift weights daily, and eat great, I might lose a pound over 6 weeks, but usually nothing.

Has anyone else had issues like this and what have you done about it?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you to have hypothalamic hormonal profile and functional MRI brain to rule out functional disorder in satiety centre.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
