This is true. I am never hungry, not even in the morning when I wake up after not eating for several hours. I have an eating schedule that I follow during the day so that I can get in my Protein.

I have seen that many people on this forum say that they are hungry though, so I don't think that everyone who has been sleeved is never hungry, but I don't know why one person is and one person is not.

It was only true for me for about 3 weeks. At almost 4 months post op, I am hungry all the time :-(

I have had maybe 3 times in 7 weeks post op that I thought I was hungry. Before surgery I usually had trouble telling if I was truley hungry or if it was a digestion issue. Just like pre op I usually feel weak and shakey rather than stomach hunger.

I can honestly say any hunger I have is "head hunger".

Head hunger and psycho cravings start to subside. I am not hungry very often.

I'm 11 days post sleeve and haven't been hungry once! I'm hoping this never goes away!! Now, I can't say the pizza and fast food commercials don't still grab me a little bit... But, nothing like before!

I am 2 + years out... and after finding that I don't eat and began to look sick I realized I have to eat MORE!! So yes I am never really hungry and if I am.. ONE BITE of anything works! and it goes away. I have had to "make meals" to eat so I don't keep losing. So I think for some people it goes away!

Hunger returned for me around 3 weeks - but only if I go beyond 4 hours of not eating. I don't wake hungry in the morning though.

I am 4 months out...I do not get hungry. I know it won't last forever, but I hope to lose as much as I can while it lasts. Everybody is different. I've read posts from people right out of surgery who say they are hungry, so there is no guarantee.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
