You should plan for a meal within 30-60 minutes after your workout. Have some protein, carbs, fat and fruit/veggies. This will help curb your hunger.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

after exercising drink a protein drink. That should get you over to your next meal. Yup your protein during your meals too.

Hi,
You have a lot of good suggestions to try. I would add that you can pre-prepare a variety of vegetable soups which can be frozen and then defrosted as needed. A hot,thick, pure veg soup- eaten slowly should do the trick and won't mess up your energy allowance. Another suggestion is to sip a mug of hot fat-free milk.

You should eat something , fiber rich, and with some protein within that hour after you exercise.Fiber selects wheat thins,and hummus,or some raw veggies with the hummus, an apple, or banana with low fat or fat free yogurt, string cheese,or a laughing cow wedge.Keep it up with the water, and adjust your snacks and meals, to see what helps with the after workout hunger attack.

To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!

As far as being hungry...I agree with the other response. Try to eat things with a lot of protein and fiber. I recently switched to high fiber cereal for breakfast and eat fiber and protein for lunch and it keeps me satisfied quite a long time between meals. Before I would eat breakfast and be hungry an hour later.

Good luck!

Are you meeting your protein and fiber requirements? If not that could be a reason why you are always hungry and about the sweet tooth. There are a few low cal treats you could squeeze into your day when a craving kicks in. I like sugar free pudding snacks when I need something and others have said low cal fudge pops are good!

Ok I have a couple of quick questions.
Now that I have started to exercise I am starving. I am not sure how to handle that beside eat. I am not hungry before or during, but about an hour after I am done I am very hungry even after drinking a bottle or two of water. Any tips so I don't binge and blow not only the workout I just did but the whole healthy lifestyle day (avoiding the word diet)
Secondly, I crave sweets terribly. I have been doing fairly well with that by eating fruit, but I could go over my calories in a hot second with fruit. So I also need suggestions with that as well.
Thank you for your help and support. I love this group it has been helping more than you all know...keep it up
