Of course you are: Yes, that's what makes dieting hard. You can try different things to help this: eating smaller portions more frequently, drinking a glass of water, low calorie snacks, or taking a little walk. Your body will adjust and the hunger pangs will improve. Most cravings last 5-10 minutes and then go away, whether you give in to them or not.

Pressure on wound: Put a small bandaid on it and if is still bleeding in the morning then see your doctor.If it is bleeding a lot then go to the er to get it to stop.Cover it with pressure and keep pressure for at least 20 minutes then keep bandaid and slowly remove it gently more pressure should get the bleeding to stop. It will heal but get it checked.

How could a lack of fiber (roughage) in the diet be a cause of colon disease, including colon cancer?

Theories: Of slow bowel activity, build up of bad bacteria creating toxins or toxic environment. And healthy intestinal bacteria with higher fiber diet may cause less colon wall mucosal irritation and less risks for cancer. Also theories of low fat diet and increased exercise lowering colon cancer risks.
