What does it say about my diet/metabolism if Im not very hungry

Customer Question

What does it say about my diet/metabolism if I'm not very hungry during the day/afternoon...always have a late afternoon energy crash... and am very hungry at night?

I've tried to eat more during the day when Im not so hungry and therefore can make healthier choices, but I just dont have much of an appetite and Im always starving at night.

I'm trying to lose weight and my weight wont budge at all despite adding 5-7 miles per day on my exercise bike.

Very frustrated.

OK--have you had your thyroid functions checked?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes...last time it was tested there were no problems with it. I had a bunch of bloodwork done because I was worried about my weight and the only thing of any concern seemed to be that I was low in Vitamin now I take a vitamin for that...
