Exercise To Reduce Hunger


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I find that often if I am feeling hungry a little bit of exercise will reduce the feeling. When I feel hungry I walk up and down a few flights of stairs or walk around the block. When I am done the feeling of being hungry is often gone.

    Yes, I do this tip sometimes myself. I think sometimes i'm just bored, not actually hungry. On days I workout for an hour or maybe a bit longer, that does however seem to increase my appetite a bit

    Activity is a great diversion, change up your eating plan to include legal snacks, and drink some water!

    Activity is a good way to stay a way from munching. I also use reading or working with hands keeps me from grazing.

    I also find that this works! But if I push myself to hard, I get even more hungry!

    Personally, sometimes working through the hunger does make it go away...other times not. Not sure why this is but....

    Exercising through it. I'm wondering does this change my chemistry in some way? When I dont work out consistently and just eat, I feel more and more hungry. when I exercise through the hunger, it goes away. emoticon
