When I first started I used to be hungry all the time and getting very little done on the actual weightloss part. What helped me is counting calories and trying lots of new stuff. I think most people make the same mistake I did when I first started and tried to eat significantly smaller meals right away. If you've stretched out your stomach its going to take time to shrink it. Until it starts shrinking you have to fill it. I drink water before and after each meal. My meals are fairly large, but filled with thick veggies. If you eat a proper portion of lean protein (0.5-1 "serving" = ~100g or half a chicken breast) you can double or triple portion your veggies and still have the occasional pasta.

If the very small meal thing isn't working for you then just try a few things and listen to your body. I have switched to this way of eating and I lost the same amount of weight that it took me to lose in 6 months in just a few weeks. I'd rather not finish my food and save it for later than devour my plate and still be hungry.

Since the beginning of the year, I've switched to working out in the mornings instead of evenings. I get a lot more done this way, but I'm always hungry too! I usually eat two small meals, three snacks, and usually a good size dinner. I try to spread out small calories around so I can last throughout the day and I keep healthy snacks handy.

Upping the amount of protein you are taking in will help a lot. Also eat every couple of hours. The meals will be smaller but it will help keep your metabolism up. Upping your fiber won't hurt either.

I've had that problem too. I've upped the amount of protein I get though, and that has helped a lot. I know previously I've had problems meeting my protein goals, but now I've added the occasional protein bar or Bolthouse Farms Protein Mocha along with nuts and dairy and have been getting the right amount much more consistently.

I believe I pretty much stay hungry this go around! It seems like my stomach is a bottomless pit! Maybe I need to add more fiber / protein? Guess I'll try that and see what happens.

Working torward a happier me!

I have actually read in Spark trivia here that its very beneficial to eat within an hr of working out. Maybe try fruit or raw veggies, yogurt or nuts. This should help!!

I'm new as well and have been working out seriously for about three weeks and I've noticed my stomach is growling ALL the time! I could've just finished eating and I will still be hungry. I try to do small snacks every two hours but that still hasn't helped. I think my body is just used to getting food and not actually needing to use it, that it doesn't know what to do with all this calorie burning.

Hey everyone, new to this team and new to SP in general! :)
I've been working out and eating right for just shy of a week

Running/Walking in the park (and my stamina has increased a lot already!)
Basketball with my boyfriend
and Some weight training

But because I've been eating better and working out a lot more, I've been SO huungry lately. I make sure to come here and figure out the right foods and stuff

But everyone else gets this hungry when working out this much?
