I am a 29 year old female, 4 years post gastric bypass. I lost 140 lbs after my surgery. Last year I became pregnant and gained 35lbs during my last trimester. I do the treadmill and EFX and some weights at my healthclub. I was wondering what are the best exercise combinations with these and what I can do to control my appetite after I workout. After my workout I am usually starving even if I eat before I go. I am trying to drink water constantly but it doesn't seem to be working like it did the first time. Thank you!
It sounds like you could use more complex carbs/whole grains and fruits in your diet. These things digest slower, leaving you feeling full longer. If you don't notice a difference in the first few days, give it a bit longer. Many, many times it's a matter of habit rather than hunger and it will take time.
Meanwhile, keep a cup of whole grain cereal that you like to snack on when you're at your hungriest after a work out. Just be sure it's non-fat and low sugar. Try to keep it to one of the selections that are less than 150 calories per cup (without milk). How about frosted shredded wheat? Toasted oat flakes, Life, Cheerios, there's so many!
Even having a packet of instant, flavored oatmeal is an option. Just stay away from things like 'power bars' and nonsense that might be promoted - you'd be far better off with just about anything else.
