Weird hunger after eating olives?!?

I've noticed that every time i eat a bunch of black olives at a time i get an extreme feeling of hunger almost immediately after eating them. I've only ever noticed this happen with black olives. has anyone else experienced this? could it be a sign of some kind of digestion problem?

    Could be the salt making you feel hungry/thirsty. No, I don't get more hungry after eating them, but I do enjoy them. I can't think of any digestive issue that would have a side effect of increased hunger.

    Actually eating olives should have the opposite effect. Olives contain monounsaturated fatty acids that stimulate production of the hormone cholecystokinin, which sends messages of fullness and satisfaction to the brain.
