Thanks for the info. I'll increase my calories a bit and hopefully that will help. I eat tons of veggies & whole grains and am trying to stay away from the sweet stuff. Once that's in my system, I seem to crave it days after. I ran almost 6 miles this morning and felt great after. I had oatmeal, strawberries & milk. An hour later I had a bowl of broccoli too.

Thanks again!

Welcome and glad to have you with us! Tammy is a registered dietician (or a nutritionist - or maybe both! I can't remember but whatever she is, she is AWESOME!), so her advice is professional!

You do eventually get used to the increased exercise and your appetite will re-regulate itself.

Welcome to the Team & Welcome to the world of running!

Increase exercise can make you hungry... It's a fine line between eating enough to support your running but not so much to create weight gain.

Try to eat foods that are naturally high in fiber - the fiber will fill you up & keep you more satisifed. Good examples are fresh fruits, raw veggies, small bowl of high fiber cereal, and oatmeal. Some people really enjoy eating one of the Fiber One 90 calorie snack bars since it is something "sweet". Hope this helps.

Welcome aboard!

Points to ponder... You are burning more calories with your increased activity. Your body is adapting to new workloads, so has a lot of repair and recovery to do. That takes more calories.

So you need to do an honest accounting of what your caloric needs are and go from there.

Don't worry about eating too much! Heck, I run so I can eat! ;) (jk)

Hi everyone,
I began running several mos ago and absolutely love it! My problem is that I am hungry all the time! I bring healthy snacks to work and drink a ton of water, but every couple of hours I'm hungry all over again.

Any tips/comments are appreciated.
Thanks!
