    anyone else find they get laods hungrier here than they do at home?

    i mainly eat pretty healthy home cooked meals and whatnot. but im getting fat (dont tell pol)
    No, I no longer get hungry like I used to. Here I tend to eat about one proper(ish) meal a day and at home I'd have two or three. In the last year I've lost over two and a half stone through not eating much and exercise.

    I'm too lazy to cook properly and too poor to buy ready done stuff/take out. Before term started it was a bit ridiculous though, I had to make a concerted effort to have anything to eat in a day.

    Today I've eaten houmous (high calorific content ) and caffeine. I may have a pasta salad I bought earlier when I get back.
    The other day a strange thing happened, for my first food of the day at about 4 in the afternoon I decided to have a bar of chocolate and I couldn't finish it. It was the first time in about 15 years I've not felt like finishing chocolate!

    Some people gain weight at uni, others lose it. As long as you're healthy it doesn't matter.

    Yes, in fact I was discussing my hunger with my mum earlier, which promted more food being added to the trolly I've still not eaten anything from the buttery but I'm always hungry & I'm eating loads all the time! (Friends have commented on it!) I eat porridge, toast & fruit for breakfast but I'm normally starving by 10:30am, half way through first lecture! I'm reckon I'm eating quite healithy (apparently I sicken people with my healthy lifestyle :confused: !) but my mum reckoned I'd lost weight! (But then she also said I'd grown; in four weeks?!)

    I don't think I fit in there. I am unhealthy.

    I don't like to eat chocolate bars in places of proper meals. They are more like snacks for me to eat before lectures, if and when I get hungry.

    I'm hungry right now, but I must resist the temptation of leaving my workstation and eat.

    The work must go on.

    I hope you don't arrive at Clare look like a snowman. It's cold out there.
    I've got my coat and not just my jacket, it's alright. You just wait till you have to go to the gates building when there's 3 inches of snow on the ground and a windchill of minus 20. Then you'll be having fun (as I did).

    /me is leaving now, I'll try and watch out for knife wealding cyclists

    Loosing weight is not a good thing! I'm still trying to put back on what I lost over the summer!
    Do you have to eat with your anti-inflamatories? Mine make me sick if I don't eat anything before them so I have to eat regularly

    nah, my stomach is hardcore.

    having said that one really ****ty rheumatologist put me on a huge dose of ibuprofen which i had to take every day. after a couple of weeks i was throwing up every day

    (in response to this my gP put me on some different painkillers, then the next time i saw the other GP, he said in the BMJ it said these were incredibly bad for you and shouldn't be given to people... :rolleyes:)

    Frightened?! :confused: All people should aspire to be as organised as me, think how much better the world would be if they were!
    I'm an outdoors person, I'm prepared for anything when it comes to being outside, and of course with that comes the inbuilt archaeologist in me! I have new waterproof trousers, two pairs, how cool! :cool:

    Actually, I was quite impressed with your First Aid pouch with EVERY variety of sickness pill.

    It was quite shocking how your mate just went blue....I was actually a bit worried......

    I think I am going to buy myself a pair of waterproof stuff because I dont think I can bring my plastic out again, I felt as if I was gonna fly away in the wind

    But then again, I dont think I'll be going on another outing....
