I recently switched to a lower dose estrogen birth control pill and have been noticing an extreme increase in appetite. Specifically I've had to cut nuts and coconut milk out of my diet completely because they seem to trigger binges. I was on a higher dose estrogen pill for months before this without a problem. I went off all hormones for three months and felt great but recently started a relationship and didn't feel safe without going back on it.
My question is if anyone can explain the sudden voracious appetite I have and possibly recommend some supplements to take while on hormones to help balance things out? The only thing that seems to keep me full for awhile is large amounts of protein. Any idea what's going on here?
