I always have a snack after my workouts (usually a banana and/or strawberry milk) so the hunger isn't an issue for me. I am a strong swimmer--have been since I was a kid--and I love to do 20-30 minutes in the pool and then take a soak in the sauna. I usually use the pool on days that I have to fit a workout in because of my work schedule, but I'm too sore to jog or do the arc trainer or spin. I do not feel like swimming is as powerful of a workout as some of the other things I do, but it's a great gentle way to get my body moving and sometimes that's just what I need.
