Easy tricks to control your ravenous hunger after an intense workout session

 

A huge amount of calories are lost while exercising and body craves for food to produce energy.

But if the hunger is so bad that you can't wait for anything else, worry not.

Experts have found ways to tackle this difficult situation and how to manage your hunger:

The reason why we feel hungry

The most common reason is that we burn a lot of calories while performing intense exercises.

In general, exercising suppresses our acylated ghrelin, which makes us feel full after the workout session. But the effect lasts only for a while. If you fail to fuel yourself well before the workout then it is obvious to feel ravenous after the session.

The second reason why this happens is because of the blood flow and inflammation. This increases the level of cortisol hormones, making you feel famished.

How to stop overeating after a workout session:

Eat well before workout

Eating well does not mean overeating and jumping on the treadmill. Eat food full of nutrients and minerals, wait for an hour and then exercise. If you sweat on an empty stomach, you will not be able to focus on your form as your attention will be on food. Moreover, exercising on an empty stomach is not a healthy practice.

Keep yourself hydrated

Tell us if this sounds familiar. You just got down from the treadmill after an intense cardio session and while you are still trying to catch your breath, your stomach starts growling.

Even though you had fueled yourself before the training session, all you can think of is food.

Has this ever happened to you?

Well, feeling extremely famished after a workout session is not uncommon. A huge amount of calories are lost while exercising and body craves for food to produce energy. But if the hunger is so bad that you can't wait for anything else, worry not. Experts have found ways to tackle this difficult situation and how to manage your hunger.
