In the last couple months, I've been constantly hungry. Maybe for good reason--I don't always eat breakfast, and sometimes I try to skip lunch to get out of work early & save a few bucks. But I guess you need calories to keep moving, so whenever I start to feel a little tired or cold, I grab a snack. And another. And another. Pretty soon I've devoured 600 calories in granola bars and 200 in peanuts, and I'm still peckish.

Is there something wrong with me, that my body is doing this? Maybe. But nothing so bad as Prader-Willi Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Some sufferers have "eaten themselves to death in one sitting" from their insatiable hunger.

Now I don't feel so bad. But maybe that's because I ate breakfast this morning and packed myself a lunch.
