    Why do I get so hungry


    When I am lifting weights? Sometimes it's to the point where I have to cut my workouts short due to feeling hungry. Sometimes I lift fasted, other times I'll have a small meal with some carbs. Yet I always seem to get the urge to need to eat something. The hunger cravings get me weak.

    Any supps that could help me?

    Try intra workout carbs. That should solve the problem

    I think you answered your own question when you said you lift fasted or with a light meal. I'm not going to get into a lifting fasted debate, but I have yet to see anyone not get hungry if they don't eat and have an intense workout.

    The problem with taking stims for me is that I have to work out in the evening after work and I won't be able to fall asleep when I should.

    Intra-carbs? I've tried Gaspari Glycofuse and liked the taste but that hasn't seemed to solve the problem. Maybe I should just keep giving that a try.

    Why not just eat before you go?

    How do you end up training fasted in the evening? Do you not eat during the day? I train fasted because I train first thing in the morning, more of a convenience thing than anything else, I also don't like having food digesting in my gut less than 3-4 hours before training. So for me, a preworkout or fat burner plus something for intra and I'm good to go. I wouldn't and did not train completely fasted in the afternoons/evenings when I use to train after work.

    Hungry = Eat food.

    Gatorade would be much cheaper than Gaspari

    I eat a lunch around noon. Then don't eat much of anything except maybe a protein bar until my workout at 5.

    And this happens weekends as well. I'll eat a breakfast that will include several eggs before my workout and I still get hungry.

    So it happens even when I do eat before I train.

    Is this really requiring explanation? You are hungry because you are not eating enough.

    ^^^^THIS

    Not sure what more you want for an explanation. Eat more to get rid of the hunger. I hope you know that eating nothing more than lunch then 5 hours later a protein bar is not going to do much for your workout, on top of that it sounds like you simply are not eating enough. Eat more=less hungry

    If by chance I am WAY off from what I just stated and you want supplements to take, well if you train in the morning, take Dexaprine XR. Will take care of the appetite throughout the day. If you train at night, the only thing I used was Lights Out to help me sleep through the night without waking up because of hunger. So cant really say it will take away hunger, but if you wake up from hunger this helped me.
