Here are some methods to control your hunger after a workout .

Melbourne [Australia], November 6 (ANI): 'Exercise' not just does miracles to our body, but also helps us to live a long life .

But a rigorous workout session can often leave you kicking around the kitchen, trying to fight off an insatiable hunger and if you are thinking to shed some weight, binge-eating is the last thing you want to do .

So what should everyone do to control their hunger after a satisfying workout?

According to News .com .au, here are some tips that would help you to stop from under-doing all your hard work:

- Keep yourself Hydrated

Our body commonly mistakes thirst for hunger . So, if people would not be careful about that, then it would leave you thinking that you need to eat more .

So it is really important to make yourself hydrate before, during and after a workout to avoid misdiagnosed hunger .

- Be mindful of duration

The length of your workout also can affect how hungry you get, as the body can perceive a long workout as a famine making you really hungry .

To prevent overeating, plan your post-workout meal or snack before working up a sweat .

- Be wary of weights and water

Weightlifting and water sports can be real hunger-driving culprits . This is because pumping iron causes micro tears in the muscle . As they repair, your muscles grow bigger and stronger . So, the more muscle you have, the hungrier you get .

As for water sports, like swimming and water polo they are extra hunger-inducing because the temperature of the water cools down your body .

Being immersed in water also causes you to use every muscle in your body, so you tend to deplete energy stores quicker . (ANI)
