Do you feel hungry after exercise?

If you cannot exercise alone, do it with a buddy

Exercise is a great way to lose weight and keep yourself healthy. If you eat healthy and exercise, there is no way that you would continue to be fat given what you eat is healthy.

Exercise is one simple weight loss solution that no one should ignore. It is such a wonderful feeling when you run for 20 odd minutes,though for optimal weight loss, the solution that most experts suggest is a minimum of 45 minutes of exercise per day.

But this post is about what happens after the exercise. A lot of people including myself feel hungry after exercise and end up eating more than we normally do. Hence, we get the impression that all our weight loss efforts go to waist after we exercise so there is no point in doing any exercise if you are going to eat more afterwards.

Worry not as new research has shown that people who do exercise, END UP eating less than people who do not exercise. Notice I say the word END UP. You might eat more than what you normally do at lunch with exercise but in the overall scheme of things, you would eat less, says the report.

And lets not forget the fact that you build muscle when you exercise and muscles help you lose weight fast. Simple weight loss solution is all about losing weight in a way that is uncomplicated and easy to implement.

What I normally do is I exercise late in the evening. I exercise, I get tired, I get hungry and I get thirsty. I drink water and then go to sleep. That worked for me but I know it does not work for everyone as your body temperature is quite high after you exercise, people have trouble going to sleep after a long exercise session.

What you can do instead is what I have pointed to before. You can have a list of foods that are extremely low in calorie and extremely high in volume. Such foods include Spinach (try to eat 1 or 2 pounds of raw Spinach) and celery.

Celery is a wonder food. Low calorie, low fat, low GI value. It is what you are looking for to stuff your stomach with when you are feeling hungry. Try to fill yourself up with these foods until your cravings go away. After that, you can have a little bit of what you REALLY want to eat.

Generally I have found that the hunger that one experiences after exercise goes away when you drink 3 or 4 glasses of water after the exercise session.

Let me know how it works out for you guys.
