I am on 2000 calories again today.It is hard to go back down to 1300 after going so high,i reckon tomorrow though I will be back on top of it and get the calories back down.I haven't weighed but I feel lighter on my feet.Severe depression isn't helping and the moods and swings of mood are awful.

I was 152.4 yesterday and today I was 149 exactly. I read yesterday that antibiotics can cause hunger and can cause you to pack on the pounds. Plus some sites say the hunger is irreversible. I donít think I believe that. Iím more concerned with the Today Show saying this morning that antibiotics can do irreversible damage to your immune system.

Today I had 1,180 calories. I am hungry but itís manageable. I take my last dose of antibiotics tonight. I canít see how hunger can be irreversible. Has anyone heard this about antibiotics? They said it changes something in your gut so you donít get signals that your full.

I have not hear that antibiotics affect appetite,but I have heard say they get rid of all the bacteria in your gut,the good and the bad bacteria,so after taking antibiotics they recommend eating live yogurt or taking probiotics.

@Mountaindewed - what often causes ravenous hunger is lower production of leptin, the hormone that inhibits hunger and makes you feel satiated. I have not heard anything about antibiotics affecting it.

What would be the cause of lower leptin? Iím currently pretty hungry but Iím drinking cold Fiji water and Iíll be going to be in about half an hour anyways.

If you Google the Biggest Loser study, you will see an example of the one that has been most widely documented. Losing a tremendous amount at an insanely rapid pace can increase hunger and slightly lower metabolism. Worse, in the follow ups years later, most of them had returnwed to their old weights and still had low leptin levels and the slightly reduced metabolism; it didn't "reset".

Another cause is bad luck, probably genetics. It is harder for some people to lose weight, but it is possible for everyone.

This is almost scary - 152, rounded up from 151.8. That's after a day with some good cardio and light eating that was preceded by a day of light eating. Two days ago I rounded down to 157, so this is a drop of over 5 pounds. Water; I need to make sure I am hydrating properly.

I took my last antibiotic last night and I have noticed a drastic decrease in my appetite. Yeah, it was definitely the antibiotic. I went from 149 yesterday to 147.4 today. @UpDownAround Maybe thereís something in the air (as my mother would say) thatís causing weird weight flucations. Because I was 152.4 3 days ago.
