So Ive done a 3 mile power walk, come back into the house and I am absolutely starving!!! I mean, I could literally eat my fingers.
Drank a pint of water and that hasn't helped. Ive been snacking on lots of fruit lately but the sugar and carbs are beginning to dominate my RDI so I need to curb that.

What can I have to eat after a good workout??? I haven't eaten a banana for months since I found out the fat content and Im struggling to find a good post exercise snack.

Heeeeeelp Bad Grin

What fat content in banana's? Why would one be afraid of fruit?
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

bananas are dangerous.......be afraid, be very afraid. LOL.
Actually a guy at the gym told me that bananas are not great to eat if you are trying to lose body fat. They do have high sugar and carb content tho?

That guy doesn't know what he is talking about. It's 105 calories for a medium one. Calories in vs. calories out. The law of thermodynamics. Also fyi, there is .3 grams of fat in a banana if it matters to you...

Calories are what matter when it comes to losing the fat.

been reading some of your posts Diablo (buddy request pending) Ive always been on the skinny side and never had to even think about weight/fat so all this is new. So many conflicting views it gets confusing. So if its all about calories then I shouldn't worry about HOW I get those calories? I shouldn't worry if 80% of my RDI is carbs? That would make life easier for me to be honest. I hear so much about keeping the diet high in protein and low in carbs but I cant do that. I eat a LOT of fruit and veg, fish and chicken but not much red meat or dairy.

Sorry, now I remember seeing the email about the request, I will accept it now that you've reminded me. There is old data that is not backed by science and what I am linking to that is backed by peer reviewed scientific studies. There are myths and then there are facts. I am providing the facts. There are personal trainers who do not continue to be students, they believe themselves masters and will not listen to the new data. It pains me to accept that fact. Some people are just close-minded.

As far as your question about 80% carbs, It all depends on your goals. Some people would rather exchange some for more protein for satiety and to maintain or build new muscle tissue more efficiently. Endurance athletes on the other hand should strive to consume the most efficient energy source(carbs). Bottom line, no matter what percentage you go with, you cannot gain fat in a calorie deficit.

cool thanks for that. So, original question. What is a good post exercise snack that will keep me full til the next meal? Anything that stands out as satisfying for more than half an hour?

A serving of nuts, a bowl of shredded wheat, a sandwich. I don't usually eat anything around my workout. I fast for 16-18 hours a day and have a 6-8 hour eating window. I don't usually get hungry after a workout, quite the opposite. Maybe others can suggest something.

Hi there; I usually go for a small portion of chicken soup (my doctor told me that the warmth s good at night) and it is not heavy, and keeps me satisfied. Also a lettuce soup can help you get satisfied and is very light - I haven't tried it personally but a good friend of mine who is quite into fitness goes for lettuce soup usually.

Also, thanks for the posts, reading Diablo360x has helped me quite a lot; as I have been struggling so hard to understand which should be my higher/lowe intake (protein, carbs or fat), as they usually vary and I don't know how to control it. It is good to know that after all if it doesn't matter that much.

Right a permanent change is the only way to keep it off once you los it. Best is slow and develop a new way of eating healthier, add some exercise.

Whoever writes this article does not know anything about fitness, cardio burn more calories than strange training. You cannot build muscle mass on a deficit.
