I am working on the same goal amd I know what it feels like. Did you correct the sugar and fat values to the ideal value right away? If you did, that might explain why you feel hungry all the time. You didn't allow your body to get used to the new regimen.
If this is your case, you need to slow down a bit with your efforts. Do have sugar and fat, just try to have a little less. Once you feel comfortable with your intake, you can lower it again, and you can repeat this until you are down to your recommended daily value. This is much like drug detox, really. Come to think of it: sugar and fat ARE drugs!
People always want to see the effect of the change they are making right away, and that tends to be a mistake because your body is still expecting the old regimen. You need to take it slow. Instead of eliminating all extra fat and sugar, start by eliminating a little, and later a lot, until you reach your goal. Don't try to do this overnight.
You also might want to explore foods that are more filling so you can combat The Hunger more effectively. You might want to use the SELF NutritionData website to find foods that are filling. You need to select the Nutritional Target Map tool. Within the map, you have to click somewhere in the upper right corner for the best foods, but in any case, you must click somewhere in the top half of the map for filling foods. Try to include your favorites among those foods in your diet regularly for more satisfaction.
