Appetite increasing with training?

I recently just increased my training to start putting some real base miles in and I've noticed my appetite has just about doubled if not tripled, especially with the cold weather, particularly at a few hours before bed. I know an increase in training will increase appetite but I'm trying to lose weight during my base, how to I control my appetite without diet pills and etc?

you dont have to "cut" your appetit jsut eat every 2-4 hrs but make it good meals in small portions.
you need the right type of carbs that are found in rice that your body can quickly burn energy with it and it wont make you fat.

i eat rice with a piece of griled chicken for my inbetween meals .. it fills the void of wanting to eat pluss it gives your body the protien you need for building that red muscle tissue you are wanting plus the rice gives you the boost in energy that you need

Make sure that you always have fruits in your house. Whenever you feel hungry, have an apple or banana. A glass of low fat milk will also help you. You will need carbs and fiber after training, so the idea is to have good carbs like fruits, milk, whole wheat bread etc.
Stay away from those junk, fatty, deep fried food after training. It will offset all the training you did.
As dokie suggested, have 4-5 meals in small portions every day.

Happy training!

eat when you are hungry, just eat the right things. foods high in fiber will you help you feel "full" while still keeping your calories in check. go for fresh veggies and fruits, low fat granola bars, and for me some smart pop popcorn is great snack before bed time. dont forget the water. good luck. later.

If you're hungry, eat. Just eat quality food.

What is your recovery food plan? Hitting that well can reduce your appetite a fair bit.

Finally, when are you riding, and when are you getting hungry?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches are good. It'll likely do more to suppress your appetite than a boatload of carbs, and it's delicious.

During your base phase, the nutrition thing is a little easier to handle. Once you hit your build phase, though, you need to feed the fire.

That's exactly what I was going to post. Eat when you are hungry, just eat right. When I went through the process of losing 65lbs I ate much more food then when I was gaining weight, i just ate smart. And fiber isnt very digestible which makes you feel fuller since you stomach has to work so hard at attempting to. That's why when you are counting carbs you do not count fiber. And drink plenty of water.

Okara burgers work for me...

I know this is an old thread but since it has such a high google index, I thought I'd add my $0.02... I just started cycling this year and definitely can eat the entire contents of my fridge when hunger strikes :-) The only thing I have found to eat that is satisfying enough is okara burgers with lots of oatmeal. Okara or soy pulp is the insoluble carbohydrate residue that is left over after the production of soymilk or tofu. Here is the nutrition...

https://www.tofu-as.jp/english/nutrit...ffects/02.html

Here is the recipe I use...

https://letsmessupthekitchen.blogspot...a-nuggets.html

Curry powder has turmeric in it with lots of post-workout benefits. I add flax and a lot more oatmeal than the recipe... Pretty much until I think it won't absorb any more. Sometimes I use breadcrumbs with pepper and bake instead of the flour coating/fried oil method. The first time eat like one fat burger size then wait 20 minutes before you eat anything else... It expands in your tummy super fast and can be quite, *ahem*, surprising. You can make a whole batch up at once and freeze or use it in salads and pastas over the week. I like to use it in place of falaffel with hummus and cucumber in a pita.

I eat on the bike, something like 200 cal./hr usually, then have a recovery drink if it's a long ride, just 15g whey powder in water for a short one. Then small frequent meals, like others suggest. For me, the trick is not to get really hungry. I'll usually have that 15g of whey in water about 1/2 hour before every meal, then have a small meal. I'll have a good balanced snack a couple hours before a ride, too. If you're a meat eater and don't like the idea of whey, substitute about 60 cal. of lean chicken or turkey.
