Water and lo-cal foo: Hunger is your body's way of telling you that you are eating less than you're taking in -- or losing weight. You can't lose weight without hunger, but you can lessen it by drinking water or eating lo cal foods such as vegetables. Why are you fasting? Is it religious? If not, a good program of caloric reduction and exercise is a lot better and safer. Do something you can continue the rest of life.

Most likely neither.: When one is not "hungry" but always "want(s)" to eat that sounds like some type of eating disorder. It seems you are worried about how you are dealing with wanting to eat all the time but never being hungry. It isn't weird but it isn't normal either. Talk to your doctor or a counselor to help you answer that question.

Underlying issues: Over consumption of food when not hungry may be a display of an underlying issue, emotionally or personally. You may need to seek out counseling or a psychiatrist for advice. I hope that helps.
