Exercising on DD's
makes me very very very hungry! Cripes...... i never feel like this... gotta eat, gotta eat, gotta eat....

something with lots of water in it - soup here it come!

not sure this exercising thing was a good idea:dunno:

KeirasMom 12-04-2013 04:38 PM

I'm the opposite. Of course I don't exercise nearly enough to know for sure. ;)

I don't get extra hungry from walking, but that's about all the exercise I do lol. I can imagine being extra hungry if I did more.

Have you just started exercising on DD's? I know when I first started all I wanted to do was eat after. Actually it tool about four months before I stopped craving food after the gym. Sometimes I still need something after taking a class, but usually I drink my water slowly and I just go about my evening. If it's in the morning I still have my UD hangover so I just feel lighter.

Give yourself a few more weeks ever months and see if your body stops feeling hungry after exercising.

There's a guy who runs a site called "lean gains" who suggests working out (strength training) in a fasted state, and then eating a few hours afterwards. Says it's most effective for burning fat and building muscle. My plan is to start doing weights on the morning of my up days, before breaking the fast at lunchtime. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm afraid of the exercise hungries on dds too, so I stick to walking the dog. Although I did have a weird burst of energy yesterday--body saying it's got to move!-- on a DD and did a few minutes of calisthenics. Weird.

I'm so glad this was posted. I just started this plan and was wondering ig I did a one hour zumba or weight class would it be too much on too few calories?

Is not that you don't have the energy to get thru hard exercise. You totally do. For some reason tho, after I do it, about 4 hours later.....omg!!!! So hungry ;)

Carly 12-09-2013 07:51 PM

I exercise on DDs all the time. I don't have any issue with it.

Yennie 12-09-2013 08:41 PM

I'm with Carly. I exercise on DDs all the time because I do it when i can regardless of UD or DD. If I waited for only UDs I'd never get my workouts in!
There is credible science behind exercising in the fasted state and taking stored energy (fat) for the work instead of anything dietary.

mafiamom 12-09-2013 09:22 PM

Oh I truly believe it makes the best sense to exercise on aDD. It just makes for a very hard DD for me. I really don't know why. I had a nice loss tho, when I did it, so I'm guessing I just need to suck it up, do it, and have the will power to not eat EVERY THING IN SIGHT about 5 hours later :-)

Yennie 12-09-2013 09:34 PM

I do tend to exercise in the evenings on my DDs. And since I usually know its coming I'll save cals and have a protein shake or eggs after for the protein. Then I'm in bed :)

mafiamom 12-09-2013 09:41 PM

Great idea!!! Yeah this was a.9:00am spoon class. 3:00 was NOT pretty.....

Monkeypenny 12-09-2013 10:56 PM

Funny, if I think about it: When I exercise on a DD in the late afternoon or evening, it takes hours until I get hungry. And when I get hungry, I'm less hungry than on a DD without exercise. :confused:
So for me, the perfect DD strategy would be heading to the gym straight after work. Must remember this more often, even if I'm tired and the cozy couch is calling. :)

mafiamom 12-10-2013 11:26 AM

ummm that should have been SPIN class ROFL! stupid phone.

gonna try later in the day. it DOES take a while for the hunger to hit. if i am in bed at that time i can totally ignore it.

KeirasMom 12-10-2013 12:15 PM

I was wondering how many calories could be burned by spooning! :)

When I did JUDDD before I would work out in the mornings because that is just my routine and it made my DD's miserable!! I would get so hungry a few hours later, especially lifting weights!!
So my strategy this time is working out after work. So far, so good. I went to the gym after work yesterday and did the arc machine for 30 min and it was great. I went home and have some shiritake noodles with green beans I had made the other day and a couple of bites of my husbands chili and I was fine. I went to bed kinda hungry but not bad and I didn't wake up miserably hungry either.
I was worried that after not eating much all day I wouldn't have a good workout but I had tons of energy for my workout. Then this morning I lifted weights fasted and then had breakfast. This worked great!!!
I will be doing this from now on.

People's response to exercising on DD varies enormously. I had to stop because I was so cold that I had to wrap myself in a survival blanket to finish a bike ride and I generally felt unwell and it tended to trigger a migraine.

I'm more active on my DD now but:
I'm following an MCT protocol for migraine management;
my exercise activities are light-moderate rather than moderate-intense;
my maintenance DD calories feel positively debauched by comparison to WLM DD calories and this allows a hearty snack after all that cold water exposure.

Macci 12-13-2013 10:54 AM

Hey Slowsure! Long time no see -- good to have you back!

I exercise on DDs, but just long, slow walks. I find that helps to pass the time, time I could be in my kitchen wondering how many calories 1/4 of a chocolate chip cookie would be and other non-helpful thoughts of that nature. And strolling is relaxing, a little calorie burning, and just generally feels healthy.

Kissa 12-13-2013 11:27 AM

I love DD exercise. I have always exercised on an empty stomach by choice and only ever had coffee afterwards.

On DDs the exercise 'high seldom leaves me.

Carly 12-13-2013 04:30 PM

I agree with Cindy/ Kissa. Running also seems to suppress my appetite further... we are all different.

Yennie 12-13-2013 10:31 PM

There is solid science to support exercising fasted can support fat loss. However if you're so starving after that you go crazy then it defeats the purpose. No point is being miserable!! (Or more miserable than you have to be ;) ). So there is something to be said for experimenting and finding out what works for YOU and YOUR body!

mafiamom 12-14-2013 03:32 PM

yes, i shall experiment and see what i can get away with. it is a delayed reaction and when it hits, YIKES!! so exercise at night may be the key.

Kissa 12-14-2013 03:35 PM

You'll get it worked out Colleen.
