Default Cravings

Ok, I have noticed that since I have started my exercise regimen that I am ALWAYS hungry now. This is slightly counterintuitive to my weight loss goal. So far I have been pretty good, only snacking on yogurt with granola or fruit when the feelings hit, but later in the day when I used to have ice cream or some chocolate confection I am finding it hard not to go for something sweet or salty. Any suggestions?

How many calories do you have a day and how much do you exercise?

I'm eating about 2500 calories a day at the moment.
Sat/Sun- Dance Cardio for two hours.
MWF- One hour Zumba, forty-five minute strength training
TR- One hour yoga, half-hour AB routine.

I also work on my feet for 6-10 hours Wed-Sat. According to my pedometer, I walk 6-8 miles when I'm at work.

I've been turning to air popped pop corn here lately. You can have around 6 cups for 250ish calories and it really helps with my "junk food" desires.

For me, cutting sugar out of my diet has helped tremendously with cravings. It takes a full week of white knuckling it but once you get to the other side, it really does get easier. My husband was able to overcome his cravings after only 24 hours. Having yogurt with granola or fruit causes a sharp spike in insulin and then a crash, causing you to have more cravings later. I suggest something like celery with almond butter or a string cheese with an apple, or even chunks of avocado with carrots, etc.. You end up having low amounts of sugar, fiber and protein (as well as maybe some healthy fat) and that will sustain your appetite longer.
