I have been trying to run metformin but I am feeling in constant need of sugar and carbs. Is that normal? What is the cause?

I've got a solid amount of experience using met and I've never really had that feeling. Met is known to blunt hunger. It is interesting and wonder if others have had a similar experience but I definitely haven't.

I find it nearly impossible to eat on metformin. It upsets my stomach like crazy!

There's a chart online that shows what your body needs related what it craves

Guys if you switch to metformin ER the tummy problems are a lot less

And metformin curbs my hunger at night. Very usefull

You want to talk about carb cravings....let's talk DNP lol

Probably 250 protein on non training days, 320 training, lots of fatty fish, carbs vary probably 200-300 grams. I have been geating much the same before I started the metformin but since I started it at 500 mg twice a day I just crave sugar and often feel mildly hypo it is an odd feeling. I did search the net and find some female non bodybuilding forums complaining about something similar. Perhaps I am just a whiny little girl! I really want to reap metformin benefits but it has not happened I stuck it for about three months but have now taken a break and cravings are gone again.

Also just realised my predictive typing entitled the thread surgery rather than sugary cravings.

I get the opposite effect from Met. It makes me not crave sugar or junk food very much at all.

It's in your head dude. Met murders appetite and if anything I get less cravings on it. Either that or it's something else you're using. I've heard of people having that issue with nandrolone

I often find myself craving a good surgery after metformin as well... usually colon related

Interesting, I deal with a LOT of people on metformin.. endocrine system is my day to day.. this is actually pretty common albeit more so in females.. pcos, etc.

Usually this happens at the beginning of treatment when your blood glucose drops and you crave carbohydrate. Some people find this is a mistaken craving for good old h20, but this is more common in type 2 diabetics.

Definitely not in my head as they have gone away since I stopped no idea why it was happening but going to take a break and give it another go in a few months
