I am not very thirsty after working out by treading water at the pool for 100 minutes or swimming lengths.... I am usually hungry....

I'm surprised to hear so many people say that they are hungry after a work out. For some reason I'm not. Just very thirsty. It actually hurts my stomach if I eat too soon after the work out. Interesting ideas to consider here though. thanks

Thank you so much Dean for sharing your knowlege, I really find your articles interesting, I learn a lot from them. This particular one's giving me some valuable insight cause my main problem is after workout meals where I always fail to control my eating, and it makes me feel like the effort I put into the work out is wasted. Now I have some guidelines to follow, hope it works!

I am confused, I am currently eating 900 to 1200 calories a day and exercising to burn off 400 to 500 calories a day. Should I be eating more calories after my workout or what? I exercise after work and before my dinner

So, that's why I gained rather than maintain my weight last month. I think I eat more calories than I burned, last month very hungry after workout. Very thirsty, that one I can easily fix but very hungry, all food looks so evily temptation, haha.

Dean,
Thanks for all of the knowledge that you continue to put out here for us. I learn something from almost every article you put out here. Some times it is just a reaffirmation of things that I do, other times it is new insights.
Thanks again.

This is a great article. It helped me realize that timing of certain foods is very important.

Good article. We all need to know what is here. ME, I like to fuel up after a workout with a HIGH protein drink. I had read that would help build muscle.

I believe the author, and it was substantiated by another site, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around this info as it is contrary to the brainwashing of 50 years. Hmmmm....
