Even though I eat proper meals there are days I am hungry and can eat all day. I also take excellent vitamins. What causes my extreme hunger?

Unfortunately: Many things can contribute to the sensation of hunger beyond nutrient levels/signals. In fact, any form of stress to the body can seem to stimulate the appetite, which is likely some of the mechanism behind "emotional eating".

I started taking B6 and B12 and I at same time am ravenously hungry, episodes of lightheaded and a bit irritable, is it the vitamins? Is it bad?

I started taking B6 and B12 and I at same time am ravenously hungry, episodes of lightheaded and a bit irritable, is it the vitamins? Is it bad?

Maybe: B6 is involved in making brain neurotransmitters, serotonin & norepinephrine, so depending on the dose, you may have ramped up production a bit. The maximum daily intake is 100 milligrams/day. Vitamin B12 is important in nerve function as well. The recommended intake is usually cited at 2 to 3 micrograms daily, a little more ok. Try to get these in diet; if supplement, not more than recommended. ...Read more

A good quality multivit. Will benefit many. ...Read more
