Some hunger that is manageable is inevitable when at a caloric deficiency. In fact, in my experience if there is absolutely no hunger despite eating supposedly at a caloric deficiency, probably it is not a real caloric deficiency, i.e. either there is more calories taken in, or the metabolism has slowed down so much that there is a balance of calories taken in and expended. Thus, I think some manageable level of hunger is an indicator of a state of burning fat.
To boost metabolism, a better way is to do high intensity short duration cardio exercise and/or challenging strength training (e.g. heavy weight lifting).
Hi everyone! I think my diet is going pretty well. I was just wondering when is the best time to eat certain foods in order to boost metabolism. For example having a protein in the morning. When is the best time to have protein, carbs etc.. Anyone have something that works well for them?? Also, at night I get a little hungry but I (usually) resist eating. Is this OK, or should I maybe have some fruit or something? Thanks!!
