Q: I'm 14 and lately no matter how much I've been eating Ive been hungry still

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

At 14 years of age, you will have a growth spurt because of puberty. This is a normal step in growth. I recommend that you not worry about feeling hungry and have a balanced meal in every meal.

Also, aim to increase your fiber intake which will make you feel full and you will not feel as hungry throughout the day. Hope this helps you.
