Anyone else not feel hungry the day after eating pizza?

I had a couple pieces of pizza a couple thursdays ago, and I noticed I wasn't hungry for breakfast the next day, though I ate anyway. I had a couple slices of pizza and some cheesesticks last night (blame my sister for being evil and ordering delicious smelling pizza) and I have not been very hungry at all today, actually feel a little thinner (weird). We did do pushups in gym yesterday, and I don't exercise much. Had a few sausages and some coffee around 7:30 and when I had a salad a half hour ago I wasn't particularly hungry. I'm not gluten intolerant or anything, my stomach is pretty cool with whatever I put into it. Except for copious amounts of roast pumpkin seeds. But what's the science behind this? Thought insulin made you hungrier. Am I the only one?

I feel pretty fine, and I figure if all the skinny girls in my grade can eat cheetos and pizza and brownies and still be skinny, then a slice or two of pizza every now and then won't make me keel over. By no means will I eat pizza everyday though.

That's true, Melmac. I'm getting better at being patient. And how would the paleo diet ruin someone's health, mM? Even if their metabolism is on fire, all that wheat/sugat/HFCS can't be good...

Or the paleo diet will ruin your health, like it has to many people, and those skinny lovers of pizza? They probably have a metabolism that is pretty much on fire, and that is the foundation of health.

Being healthy is more important than being skinny. The Paleo diet will get your body to a healthy homeostasis. I'm not entirely sure how they stay skinny, but it's probably not healthy. But if you do eat pizza or anything, don't dwell on it and feel bad. It doesn't matter in the long run as long as you don't do it every day. And I definitely don't. And you'll get to where you want to be, it just takes time. Be patient with it.

I am insanely jealous of those skinny girls. Healthy diet and regular exercise and I'm still bigger than them. Ah well, I have my health...

Pizza is indeed delicious. I am questioning whether it's worth it or not; normally leads to days of feeling like crap and self-loathing (bad attitude to have, I know) and I think mM is right.

I normally eat very low carb, maybe some nuts or berries here or there. I hardly ever cheat, so I feel ok about it. It's not going to kill me. It was totes worth it, pizza is delicious. It wasn't supreme like I love, just pepperoni, but still. Maybe it's like mM said, since I ate more calories I'm not as hungry.

Hm, don't quite understand this one. Usually I'm hungry straight after a large pizza.

Do you normally eat low-carb? I don't know anything about the science of a "carb refuel". Maybe your body needed the extra calories? Since you obviously don't feel too bad about the "cheat" aspect (nor should anyone) maybe it's psychological as well?

Anyway, lucky you. Hope you enjoyed that pizza :P

About the only thought I could add here is my experience today. First off I have to explain that I am on the end of a major training cycle for a pair of 5Ks I am running. Yes, I know 5Ks are not the most strenuous, but I am over preped because one was an obstacle mud run, and the other I am going for a personal best time...anyway. So I recovering from the first race and have been burning major calories over the last three weeks. The first race of the two was Sunday and I had major hunger pangs at work today (like nausea) and I ended up folding like a cheap suit and getting a gormet 9" pizza. Admittedly it was great and that got rid of the hunger. Now...funny thing...about two hours later I developed a lower grade hunger that I could basically ignore unti I got home and could have some good quality fruits. My point????? Pizza does not really fill me up. Yes, it was a craving, but I don't think it did anything nutritionally. I still needed fruit later on.

I'm not hungry the next day after some massive calories, like a pizza, because my hunger is determined from calories.

My body is pretty good at keeping calories in line with my set point.

Insulin makes you hungry if it drops your blood sugar too low, otherwise it's actually a very good satiety hormone.

I'm not going to say anything about the LC theory: insulin ---> fat etc. because it's just bull, and has been debunked so many times.
