Hi Leighann, that's because your body needs carbs to replenish your glycogen stores! It's just telling you what it needs :)

Yes it happens to me ! I am not actually hungry I don't think but do crave them. My LLC said its because normally we would draw on the glycogen supply in the liver and there isn't any ! I just keep on drinking the water !:D

Yup!

I do!
I've just started jogging myself and only done it a couple of times but every time I've come home and the toaster has been calling to me to toast some yummy granary bread and smother in peanut butter lol!!!

Thanks guys. I thought I must be going a little crazy, so should I eat the carbs my body is craving, or should I not? I am on the 1500 CD plan and will be moving to normal low GI eating next Thursday. I am wondering if I would be doing my body harm by not having the carbs it wants, as long as I make sure they are low GI carbs that I am feeding it. Does this all make sense!!!!

Thanks

Leighann

Hi Leighann

You would only really need high GI carbs if you were doing two high intensity workouts within 8 hours of each other, and even then you wouldn't need much of them. It's recommended that you have a small portion of protein and carbs as soon as possible after your workout, but this could be a low GI cereal bar, a piece of fruit and a bite of cheese - it's totally possible to pick something that fits with your plan, whether it's the 1500 cal or a low GI plan.

This is really interesting as I've just started going to the Gym last week 3 times and once so far this week but everyday I'm feeling very empty/hungry and it's driving me demented as I've never felt like this before on CD and I broke down last night (didn't cheat) but had a big cry and think that I'm gonna start an AAM week and maybe move up to 790 plan as I don't want to get to the point where I have a big cheat, and don't want to stop exercising as this is a good habbit I want to start getting into.

I experienced this when i was training for my ride, i would get in from a long ride (more than 2 hours) and just be soooooooooo hungry! I found the trick is to eat something low-mod GI that fits in with your plan, of a normal 'snack size' (eg ONE piece of toast), have a big drink of water (at least a pint) then go do something else, and only have something else if you are still hungry 30 mins later! Don't eat a mountain of pasta, thinking 'I need it' cos that is just the old Chatterbox playing tricks on you! I have to tell myself 'being a bit hungry is ok, it's not going to hurt you', cos otherwise i get v v panicky!

I still do long rides, exercise dvds, Pilates and kickboxing, and occasionally run (but i don't like it, i'm trying to learn to like it!). When I was SS, all I did was Pilates and walking, and just doing this helped me get into the exercise habit, which i've definitely got now - I got back from a 400+km charity bike ride in India 3 weeks ago! Pilates is great, it really changes your body shape and gives you a flatter tum. I could NEVER have done as much as I do now when I was SS!
