So for the past week ive been eating healthy and exercising everyday. Vegetables, drinking a whole lot of water only , cabbage soup, drink pure orange juice every other morning, and ill eat a lil junk snack (very small snack to fight the hunger and it works!) once or twice a day mainly once.... Does anyone else gets hungrier when they eat healtht drink water and exercise???
I know i do, i hope im not the only one!
And i also noticed when i used to eat bad food i get full fast and only eat once or twice a day. But now since im eating very healthy, i eat three times a day with one or two lil snacks. I eat pretty good sized healthy meals along with water or hot unsweetened organic herbal green tea. And again, the snacks i have eaten so far fight my hunger of more food .
However, I do not eat any white foods or pasta.
Am i eating right for fat burning weightloss ? Besides my lil snacks lol?
I find drinking a lot of water helps me feel full but when it wears off I feel empty and I'm starving. I also think when I eat healthy I automatically eat a lot less than I normally would. So I'm getting my greens in, but not enough calories. And I'm imagining that's where the hunger comes from too.
So then when you exercise, you burn calories. You're taking less calories in because you're eating healthy. Therefore it's safe to assume you will feel hungrier. You have to bare in mind you should still be taking in 1200 calories minimum a day, as a woman. There's apps out there that can help you track this (like myfitnessapp). If you give it ago, you'll be amazed at how much you should be eating to get that healthy minimum.
Eating little and often is a good way to curb the hunger!
Hi Lanie. I've also been experiencing the hunger pains since I've been eating healthier after cutting out all junk food. Janna gave a good explanation why and I think that's the reason feels so hungry be because we mot getting in enough carbs. I've incorporated raw almonds to my diet to snack on. It helps a little with the hunger pains....
You are not alone Lanie. Moreso, you are on the right track. Try to eat more proteins which help to keep you feeling full as well. Veggies are good but also take more fruits. Snack more on nuts and fruits and you can binge on your nuts ( almonds, pine nuts, pistachios, etc). They also make you feel fuller. Good luck girl.
Don't forget to take your daily vitamin because if your body does not have all the vitamins and nutrients it needs it could cause you to feel hungry because your body is trying to get those nutrients fulfilled. That could help
Hey Lani, the reason you are getting hungrier is because your body is now craving sugars and carbs. This is normal until your body adapts to your new healthier diet...good luck
