If eat a lot and are still hungry not to long later
I am a teenage boy.Gurjit ji
Gluttony is a form of lobh or greed. Lobh can mean greed or avarice for money, power, control, influence, and food. Lobh is one of the 5 evils.
But before you or I decide that you are suffering from lobh, gluttony, there are some things to consider.
If you are a teenage boy, even a young adult, it is not unusual to be hungry all the time. Your metabolism may be very active at this stage of your life. When we are growing and developing we are simply hungry. With age appetite lessens normally.
Are you extremely active? If an adult male, do you work hard at manual labor such as construction work? Are you athletic, working out or running? You may be burning more calories than the average person and need more to eat.
You say you eat a lot. Do you eat nourishing food that not only satisfies but also repairs your body? Do you get enough protein? Protein satisfies hunger. Do you eat too many sweets? Sweets, and carbohydrates in general, stimulate appetite.
Is your diet balanced? Does it include meat and/or dairy products, vegetables, grains, fruits, in the right percentages?
Are you obese? You may have a medical condition where you eat more calories than you use up. However, certain glands in your body are not sending the signal to your brain that you have had enough. Your brain simply says, "I am hungry."
Are you diabetic? Constant hunger is one of several symptoms of diabetes. It can strike at any age. And diabetes is a silent killer that can cause your physical health to suffer in many ways. You may want to see your doctor for a blood test. Diabetics can be either overweight or extremely thin, depending on the type and stage of diabetes they have.
Before jumping to conclusions, one way or the other about a problem with gluttony, I would definitely explore these questions. You don't have to "fess" up here, because much of this is very personal. Reflecting on these questions quietly and thinking things through can be a private matter and can be helpful.
It sounds to me as if you are at the stage where you are growing very quickly. I can remember both my brothers as teenagers, thin as rails and they ate like there had just returned from 10 years lost in the desert.
If thin, and you work out, start thinking that you are hungry and not suffering from lobh/gluttony. Eat! :motherlylove:
Next time you go to the doctor for a check up, ask about juvenile diabetes. Get a blood test. Especially if there is diabetes on either your mother or father's side. Diabetes is a major public health concern among people in India or of Indian origin.
But don't panic. Just keep an eye.
