    I have felt really tired and always hungry starting just before I donated blood two weeks ago. I was afraid I was overtraining, so I halved my total workout times from (3+ hours to about 1.5 hours) and took two days completely off. I ate about the same, which is generally when I'm hungry.

    So why have I been losing weight? I went from 160 to 156 in the past week (the first week I remained at 160). That isn't normal for me when I don't do as much exercise. I come from a family of fat people, and we generally gain lots of weight.

    The strange thing is that lately I have not been eating very healthy. A chicken burger, french fries, another chicken burger, fruit + yogurt, strawberry 2% milk, and a candy bar. Bad food I know, but that is relatively typical - if anything I usually ate a little healthier but about 33% more. Then why did I still lose weight?

    What are the symptoms of mono besides losing weight and being tired? I feel relatively healthy otherwise.

    Most people have a very difficult time gauging their caloric intake. You're probably committing dietary displacement - i.e. eating less filling, less nutritious foods in place of quality whole foods. In the short term, your stomach is probably less full, hence the "apparent" weight loss.
