I hate feeling starved after exercising, so I started trying different ways to stop post-workout hunger.

Nothing's more annoying than burning calories only to ruin all your hard work within the next hour.

By being a little proactive, you don't have to overeat after your workout.

All of these ways to stop post workout hunger are simple and easy to implement.

With these, your workouts will be far more effective.

1. Drink Water during and after Working out

Water tends to make you feel more full.

Plus, you need the extra fluid after sweating away hundreds of calories.

One of the easiest ways to stop post workout hunger is to increase your water intake.

Before grabbing a post-workout snack, drink a full glass of water and wait at least 15-20 minutes.

You'll notice your hunger dies down quite a bit.

2. Opt for Milk

Instead of eating a snack or meal, drink a glass of low fat milk.

It's full of protein which helps you feel fuller.

Both plain and chocolate milk are perfect and help you better manage post workout cravings.

I do recommend drinking a little water first and resting a few minutes.

This helps the milk settle better, especially if you have a sensitive digestive system.

3. Eat High Carb and Protein Snacks

After a long workout, your body does need something to help replenish what was lost.

Opt for snacks with a high ratio of carbohydrates and protein.

For best results, there should be more carbs than protein.

Trail mix and the classic PB&J sandwich are great and simple options.2

You'll help your body heal and you'll squash your hunger.

It's a win-win!

4. Add a Sports Drink to Your Workout

Your body needs carbs and protein after a workout.

Without them, you feel hungry and weak.

Replenish while you're exercising by drinking a sports drink.

A single sports drink will last throughout an average workout.

These drinks contain carbs which digest quickly, causing you to feel fuller.

You'll feel better and not want to inhale an entire fast food menu.
