This is Dr. David

sounds like you are eating a lot

you need to see a doctor about this

high thyroid hormone levels can cause high appetite and increased metabolism and cause you to want to eat

high blood cortisol levels or if you are taking steroid pills can also increase your appetite as well.

do you have a doctor you can see who can do some blood tests for you

you might benefit from consulting with a nutritionist as well about better meal and portion planning.

if you have bad depression symptoms, this can sometimes cause you to eat more as well.
