Exercise is important with helping curb the hunger. A rule of thumb that dietitians use is that your body is going to want approximately 10 times your weight in calories. But, to lose one pound a week, that number is cut by 500 calories. However, that is without exercise so, if your hungry on the reduced caloric intake, have a small snack of 100-200 calories but make sure you add exercise that day equal to or exceeding that amount. It is more effective if you include that snack within 30 minutes of completing aerobic exercise. The bottom line is if you exercise, you can eat a little more, take care of the hunger pangs, and still lose weight.
