Default Exercise increase hunger?

I've started working out with the Tower 200 door gym by Body by Jake because my arms are soooo JIGGLY!!! I've noticed that I'll do fine for breakfast and lunch, and then at supper I'm starved! I don't lift that much weight, the bands are just 25, 35 and 40 lbs each...but mainly I stick with the 25lb bands because I'm weak! Has anyone else noticed that working out increases their hunger, and what do I do about it (besides eating everything in my fridge like I want to!!) Please help!

Hey. Yes!!! You would be starved if u are exercising more than what the MRC tells u too. I think it only suppose to be 3 days out of the week at 20 to 30 minutes. Its like this the more u exercise the more your body needs fuel so basically you are increasing your metabolism. So everything u eat is going to be burned off quickly. So u may need to increase your calories so u can avoid starvation mode and not lose anything or exercise less. Hope this helps.

They want you to keep your exercise under 200 minutes a week, which is about 30 minutes every day.

Working out boosts your metabolism and makes it run a bit faster. The effect of working out on your metabolism lasts about a day, so it's totally common to be hungrier if you're getting more active.

This is where a lot of people get in trouble, you think now that you're working out you can have more calories but people end up thinking they burned many more calories than they do, so they eat a lot more and can actually gain weight or stop losing when they start working out. Be careful to stay on plan, same portions, same foods. If you need to curb the hunger, try adding a fiber drink in the afternoon or drinking a lot more water during this period of time. When you do get hungry, drinking 8 oz of water and then seeing if you still are hungry is a good way to get by.

Good luck and congrats on the new exercise routine.
