One thing my body has told me is that I will crave more food if my nutritional needs are not met, whether I've eaten 2,000 calories or 5.000 calories. As an example, if I've eaten 5,000 calories of mainly simple carbohydrates, my body still will call out for the protein and other nutrients I've missed. If I eat a lot of complex carbohydrates and meet my protein, etc. requirements, I won't feel the cravings.
Since taking our Cable down to just basic tv, I suddenly have a ton of time to exercise.
At first it was really hard because I missed alot of (useless) shows I had gotten addicted to. I used to sit on the couch and wish I had a more active adventurous lifestyle. Now that I don't even have the option of wasting time in front of the TV, I have that more active lifestyle I've always wanted
Meet with a nutritionist is possible to have them lay out your individual food pyramid. I met with one and she was able to really help me get all the protein and nutrients I need each day which is especially important while I'm in training. Not everyone needs the same amount of protein, carbs, etc.
