I LOVEEE working out, but you know what I don’t love?! Being hungry all day after a hard workout 🙅🏼♀️ Here are a few tips that have helped me end that ‘bottomless pit’ feeling post-workout:
01. Opt for a real meal
(if possible) with your major macros – protein, fat, carb & bonus points for fiber rather than a protein shake or bar. *There is nothing wrong with a shake or bar. I just don’t find them very filling
02. Eat ENOUGH
to feel full and satisfied rather than just eating something to hold you over
03. Be Practical
Aim for eating within 1-2 hours post-workout instead of waiting until you’re starving
And the biggie:
Let go of your attachment to the amount of food!!
* sometimes a breakfast sandwich keeps me full for 4 hours, and some days it keeps me full for just 2
* that’s okay!! Listen to your body!
