Default Exercise truth or myth?

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but someone told me this so I figured I'd ask the chicky experts!

I do about an hour and ten minutes a day, 45 minutes cardio, running usually and about 20 minutes of weightlifting and sculpting. Is it true that doing it before your usual dinner gives you a chance to not only refuel your body, but at the same time "burns it off" faster because your metabolism is still elevated after your workout?

I cook things that are fast and easy to make. Like a lot of us, I'm a busy person. Last night after my workout I had 2 corn tortillas (6" diameter) filled with 2 ozs of lean sirloin each, lettuce, tomato and a touch of hot salsa with a side of black beans. It basically took me 4 minutes to make dinner. My husband told me that since I just worked out that I would feel hungry before bed because my metabolism was still raised. I usually don't feel hungry before bed. But yesterday I was. I just had a couple pints of water but I WAS hungry. I wasn't sure if I was hungry because he told me I would be (since I'm fairly susceptible to placebo effect.) Or if by some miracle of science, he was actually right. (A rare occurrence, trust me.)

Any expert opinions?

I am not 100% sure if this is true, because I am still new at this. But I do know that my SO is constantly telling me the same thing and I do notice on the days that I workout hard that I am very hungry afterwords.

That is just my opinon, some of the other ladies might have a better explanation for you!!

Here is a short article that I found:

I can't answer your specific question but I would say up your fresh vegetables intake and water intake if you are extra hungry. There is no need for hunger.
