Yes, you read that right. Many people find that they start gaining weight instead of losing weight when they increase the amount of exercise they get.
This usually happens because they eat too much or they eat the wrong things after they have exercised and used up all their body’s energy.
That is why it is important to follow a healthy and balanced diet along with your exercise program.
Here are 4 tips to help prevent weight gain when exercising…
- Eat Fiber
Studies have shown that intense exercise can lead to an increased appetite. To prevent yourself from getting too hungry after exercising, make sure that you eat plenty of food that is rich in dietary fiber, as this can help you stay fuller for longer. Foods that are high in dietary fiber include beans and vegetables, especially peas, soybeans, chickpeas, and lima beans.
- Eat Healthy Carbs
It is normal for your body to crave carbs after an exercise session, as carbs give you the needed fuel for energy. The key is to stay away from unhealthy refined carbs, and eat healthy complex carbs. Eat things like whole grains, brown rice, quinoa, oatmeal, and beans. And steer far clear of things like white rice, white bread, and pastries.
- Artificial Sweeteners Aren’t Better Than Sugar
Many people who try and stay away from sugar turn to artificial sweeteners that do not contain actual sugar. However, these sweeteners may often have the same effect on the brain that sugar does, which causes the pancreas to release insulin. This insulin then causes the blood sugar levels to drop too low, which makes you hungry and results in sugar cravings.
- Eat Less, More Often
A big problem is becoming hungry between meals. This is where healthy snacking or smaller, meal frequent meals come in. When you are eating every 3 to 4 hours, you do not get as hungry between meals, and this can help you to prevent overeating when it comes to your next meal.
