Its hard to say because I know nothing about your diet, but yes it could have something to do with it.
Are you eating too few calories? Are you restricting certain foods?

QUESTION: Well I think it would be hard for me to eat every 3 to 4 hours bc I work 10 hrs a day get only 2 15 min breaks and 1 30 min lunch .. I eat enough to feel full but not over full and eat low fat foods
Keep in mind that if ever necessary you can utilize the 15 minute breaks and have a quick snack. The 3-4 hours is a pretty firm guideline I think people should stick within but in the real world not always a reality. As long as you are getting in enough calories.
Keep in mind that fat can help you feel full longer. Try to get in good sources of fat from nuts, avocados, olive oil, fish, and low fat dairy.
Contrary to popular belief fat is not the plague on humanity it was once thought to be
