hard not to eat a ton after working out

the only drawback to my new evening exercise routine is that I want to eat everything in the house. Discipline!

If it's a good workout, it is a good ideal to fuel your body. Pre-plan a snack for after your workout, making sure it has some protein, some carbs, and some fat. Plan it ahead of time and tell yourself that that's all your body needs!

And make sure it's ready to eat, otherwise you'll reach for something less diet-friendly instead.

i read that sometimes after a workout, thirst is mistaken for hunger. I started drinking a big galss of water after my workouts and it has helped me eat at least a bit less.

hard, maybe, but most things worthwhile are hard and require work, dicsipline and drive. hard is not the same as impossible!!

I have the opposite problem but I drink a lot of water after, it seems I am really parched.

I drink water or Gatorad after a work out 1st; if still feel hungery afterwards, especially after a long/big work out, I either have a meal replacement drink (i.e. Slimfast, EXTRA protein) or an energy bar (I like Cliff bar). Either item has about 200-250 calories, packed with vitamins, and the PROTEIN helps to curb the hunger sensation. Or, I eat fruits (apples or bannas) -- high fiber stuffs which take a long time to eat and make me fill full. I never touch juice or soda (not even diet soda) after a work out.
