I recently started a no carb diet. I eat a lot of protein for all meals and lots of veggies. I'm only eating 1200 calories per day.

I always feel hungry. Does this get easier? I don't crave specific foods, just an overall empty feeling in my stomach.

How long until you get used to it?

Eat more fat within your allotted calories. YOu will feel fuller.

I limit my calories to this amount every day but I DO eat carbs. Every time I’m hungry- specifically when my stomach growls!- I picture my stomach fat being eaten away. Weird maybe but It really helps.

It takes about a week for your stomach to settle in.
In the meantime have low cal veggies available and same for soups (oil spray, onion, garlic, zucchini, blend).

You need carbs if you're only eating 1200 calori3e a day. Download and use My Fitness Pal app. It tells you how many calories you're supposed to eat and how much should come from each protein carbs and fat (in grams and percentage) I lost 3 lbs this week eating carbs and protein and fats!

How many grams of protein are you getting?

it's likely you feel like you're starving because you are. You may need more calories.

How tall are you?

You need fat.
And 1200 calories might just be too low. Where'd you get that number?

Protein and fat. Fat really keeps you full for long. Think healthy fats like avocado, nuts, use olive oil etc

I also stick to 1200 calories a day; however, I don't count raw fruits and veggies, other than avocado. So I make a big fruit salad every other day, which probably adds 500 or more calories to my daily intake, but I'm still loosing weight.

When I'm hungry, I have more fruit salad- apples, kiwis, grapes, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries. It satisfies my sweet tooth, which used to crave cake and cookies. Bonus - my kids eat the fruit salad too, since it's ever present in the fridge!

keep busy. Really really busy. I have done this is the past so busy that I'm only eating 800 calories a day. By the hard day you can't even it eat anymore.

I’m also on a no carb diet. The first 2-3 weeks were hard. After that it was just ok. Now after a few months it’s really easy.
Like others posted earlier it’s important to get in those healthy fats. I cook my proteins (fish, poultry or meat or eggs) with a bit of olive oil. Salads have a light watery mayo dressing or olive oil/lemon dressing. I have avocado sometimes. I don’t limit my vegetables at all I eat however much I want. Fruits I try to keep to only 2-3 per day not more.
And I’m really full I don’t feel starving at all.

When you let yourself get hungry, you are training your metabolism to slow down, and you will start burning fewer calories. This is the opposite of what you want to happen. You want your metabolism to speed up.

That's why trying to psych yourself into skipping meals and going hungry doesn't usually work long-term for weight loss.

Eating throughout the day should keep your metabolism working constantly and thus faster; just pick good choices.

Also, when you let yourself get to that point of feeling very hungry, your blood sugar dips. Then when you eat, it spikes. You want to aim to keep your blood sugar constant throughout the day.
