You are looking at the small picture; remember that the vast majority of the calories you burn come from daily living... NOT exercise. You add exercise calories burned on TOP of that, and you then start worrying about deficits later. You aren't "eating up" your calories; your body needs fuel to function, and if you're truly hungry, you're probably not eating enough to support the exercise you're doing on top of daily living.

When I'm not exercising, I need about 1400-1600 to lose weight. HOwever, when I start exercising regularly? I need more. More like 1600-1800!

When I started to workout regularly, like 5 or 6 days a week, I also got very hungry. Then I read on SP somewhere that you should have a post-workout snack...which I had not been doing. Now I have something along the lines of peanut butter on a whole wheat English muffin shortly after any major exercise session, and I feel so much better. I think you are supposed to aim for eating about 50% of the calories you burned during your workout. Don't worry. This won't undo all your hard work!

Having a post-workout snack (as part of your overall calorie budget) shortly after you finish your workout can help refuel your body, and avoid feeling ravenous later.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Is it just me but I have started walking about 3 miles a day and I have been so hungry. I feel like I'm defeating myself because I just eat up all the calories I burn.

Help!
