This is another very valid reason for a slow and sustained loss. Too big of a calorie deficit can produce this result. So..... if you're trying to do it all at once, slow down a bit and let your body get used to the idea. Good luck and never quit!

I definitely don't exercise if I'm feeling hungry. Usually a smaller snack with some carbs and protein does the trick...and making sure I'm well hydrated is helpful.

Are you cutting your calories gradually? When you make a big change at once, it's hard for your body to adjust and that can leave you feeling hungry. Also make sure you're getting enough healthy fat, protein and fiber in your diet since those all help you stay fuller, longer.

I always need to eat something small before a workout if I'm hungry. Usually I'll have a small banana and then I'm good to go for my morning workouts.

so I have a voracious appetite. and dieting makes me hungry...I find I have to live "slightly hungry" all the way in order to lose.....it's hard for me to exercise when I'm feeling hungry. does anyone else feel this way?
