    I was ravenous after my workouts but I found a good combo of what pp mention above regarding a snack before and/or after. Also, I MAKE myself drink a ton of water...then I eat a small snack if I need to.

    They say to eat some carbs & protein before and after each workout. I try to eat a piece of fruit, or crackers with hummus or peanut butter, something of that nature. I get really shaky if I don't eat within an hour after working out and I need to balance carbs with protein.'

Here's a good article that may help.


Good luck with your journey! emoticon

    Well I guess you should eat! Do you work out in the morning or evening do you work out on an empty stomach? all of these you have to take in to consideration. I know if I spread all my calories allowed for the day out into smaller meals around 300 each it keeps me fuller which really helps me not to over eat
Hope this helped Try reading some of the articles about exercise and food they are really good
Good Luck on your new life style.

    I think the best thing to do is to satisfy that hunger, but do it with food that is going to replenish your body with the vitamins, and proteins that it's craving after your work out. I also get hungry after a work out. So I eat a banana, or a protein shake, sometimes I'll grab a handful of unsalted natural almonds. You have to listen to your body, cause you don't want it eating muscle tissue that you just worked to build instead of fat.
