In brief: Is it true hunger

Sometimes what people perceive as hunger is really thirst or a craving or a sensation that the stomach is empty.
Eating foods that are high in fiber will help keep you fuller longer. It also helps to drink lots of water.

In brief: Still hungry

Some medications do not allow you to be satisfied, some dietary supplements or sweeteners, and some conditions effecting the hypothalamus in the brain.
Eating a lot of sugar for some people will not help with satiety, but lead to more hunger. Damage of the stomach lining, gastritis, may be interpreted by your brain that you are still hungry. See you physician for this problem and testing.

In brief: Hard To Say

One reason people occasionally have this feeling is dehydration.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water each day and see if that helps.

In brief: Try more protein

One reason people occasionally have this feeling is dehydration.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water each day. It also may depend on what kind of food you eat. Foods high in sugar and starch are digested quickly and can make your blood sugar level drop, which makes you feel very hungry. Eat foods higher in protein and whole grains; they stay with you longer and are healthier.
