I agree with Zorbs - a small snack combining carbs and protein very shortly after a run can help avoid feeling ravenous later. As a guide, the snack should probably be around a quarter of the calories you have just burned.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Judging by the numbers I see on your Spark Page (Congrats on your success!) I'm guessing you can safely take in a thousand calories or so after that. That would pay for a trip to Burger King or even Dunkin. So... with some healthy planning of fats and protein to sate the hunger and carbs for fuel, it seems you should at least be able to come close to a break even. I guess a lot depends on how frequently you do this and what happens if you do go over a little? I wish I had your problem. I'm lucky to get a 5k in under an hour and that's not very often, at that. Good luck with a solution!

Any tips for managing the BIG hunger I get after a half marathon or training long run? Seems like I more often than not eat MORE than the calories I've burned and then have to cut in days following in order to manage my weight. Part of it is wanting to eat to feel better. Maybe some other ways to feel better would help!
