Intense training, particularly training that increases your strength (and consequently your muscles) not only burns a lot of calories, but your body requires more just to recover. When I train I use a heart rate monitor, and while it isn't perfect it does give me a good indication of the number of calories I burned during the training session. On average I ...

Hunger is the physiological drive to eat, influenced by hormones, nutrient levels in the body, and eating patterns. Scientists differentiate this from appetite, which is the psychological drive to eat. I wont discuss appetite here. Scientists also differentiate between hunger and satiety (fullness), because they are regulated by different centres. I will ...

"Feeling hungry" is a chemical and physiological response to lack of nutrients in the bloodstream. When the bloodstream is sufficiently filled with nutrients for the body's use, the brain slows the digestive process in the stomach. When the nutrients in the blood are absorbed or used (turned to fat or burned), then the brain resumes the digestive process. ...

Almost everything you're eating looks like it's fairly high in carbohydrates and low in protein. Try a protein shake or drink a few minutes before your workout and see if that helps. I've found that drinking a "Special K2O" before a workout stems my hunger significantly. It comes in several flavors and is high in protein and fiber (5g each), and low in ...

I agree with md5sum. You need more complex carbs and fats in there and possibly some more protein as well. The reason why it probably all burns out quickly is because it's all very "sugary".

Your body is over-reacting. The reaction is in the right direction in that you DO need more calories. But going on a binge because your body feels like it isn't the right answer. You should be eating more since probably 2000-2500 calories isn't sufficient for someone trying to maintain their weight and exercises vigorously. Your maintenance is probably more ...

First and foremost, I am not a dietician, so add 0.2 kcal for a grain of salt. That being said, there's at least tow different kinds of hungry in my experience: one is the feeling of a physically pretty empty stomach, the other is a low level in the energy supply (blood sugar). The former will decrease if you eat more (by volume, salad, water, and those ...

Assuming the balance of protein/carbs/fats are the same, the only thing left is the net between calories burned and calories consumed. But in your example they are the same. In theory the amount of fat loss and hunger levels will be the same. In practice, there are so many variables that someone can't just give a blanket answer. For example, there is a ...
