    So I've been eating a lot healthier for the last two weeks or so, and have started eating more homecooked food. I've also replaced snacking on chips, biscuits, etc, with eating fruit or muesli.
    HOWEVER
    I've found that I get unusually hungry every two or three hours. This did not happen before I changed my diet. It's also not because I'm eating less food. If anything, I've started eating MORE food.

    Is this a normal thing that comes with changing your diet? Should I be ignoring this hunger or eating more?

    Conventional snacks are usually more calorie dense and the energy from foods like muesli will be released more slowly. If the feeling of hunger persists for around (half) an hour, no harm in eating more fruit, muesli unless you're cutting. Your body will tell you when to stop.
