Happens to me when I eat a lot of oat meal and or peanut butter. I try to limit these foods to avoid this feeling.

I get this when I don't eat for a whole day, then make up for it at the end.

I literally can't eat anymore, but I'm still so damn fooing hungry. Its annoying as hell.

Drink A LOT of water with your meal, it will make you feel full long enough for the cravings to pass.

This helps, but the difference between hunger and appetite affects everyone in a different way. I know the EXACT feeling you were talking about, my stomach is full and I've eaten a huge meal, but I'm still hungry. I forget the name of it, but there is a hormone that makes you feel "hunger" regardless of anything you eat/have eaten. I remember seeing them showing the effects on mice on a news show once.

The only way I can get over this is to log what I eat, so I know how many calories/protein/fat/carbohydrates I've eaten, and just ignore the feeling of hunger, and look at food like fuel. It's really tough, and it sucks that genetics can make you hungry for no reason, but I look at as another chance to strengthen my self-discipline.

Anyway, something else it might be is if you have a deficiency in something, which may make you still hungry or craving for something. Make sure you have a good multivitamin, ever since I started taking Optimen, I don't get random food cravings anymore. Just hungry all the time lol  :(

I've had this feeling many times over and I'm not sure if this is what everyone else experiences, but for me I get it whenever I take in too many simple carbs.  I find excess sugar, white bread and other similar foods make my cravings go up and don't seem to ever satisfy that hunger.  A good example, I have a love/hate relationship with donuts.  I try never to eat them because when I do, I tend to be hungrier after the 2nd one than I did before I started eating.

 @venom- what kind of food do you eat when this happens to you? I think it might be a ghrelin response. Depending on what you eat it can trigger your body to release more ghrelin (the hunger hormone) than would be normal. This is the sensation people report when no matter how much "chinese" food they eat they report feeling hungry after 2 hours. It's actually a false hunger cause by the excessive ghrelin but it feels no different to us than true hunger.

 @nmucha @bigworm- solid advice + reps to both.
