#3. You’re so hungry, your own arm is starting to look appetising
Always being hungry could be a sign of you just eating the wrong foods – foods like sweets, which lack vital fibres, proteins and fats that keep you feeling full. But it could also be a sign of something far less innocuous, like insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes, both of which can be caused by, you guessed it, excess weight.
Get a doctor to look at you if your hunger is combined with extreme thirst, blurry vision, or numbness or tingling in the hands and feet; if it’s caused by weight gain, weight loss could reverse it.
