    Anyone else working out more to eat more?
    I was noticing a pretty funny pattern for myself yesterday at the gym. While I was lifting, I was thinking about the apple pie at home that I was going to eat when I got there Then it dawned on me, I think I am exercising to make myself more hungry so that I can eat more good holiday food! Anyone else catch themselves doing this?

    I do reward eating (and drinking) all the time. My favorite meal after a nice long weekend run is a big, fat, greasy, bacon egg and cheese sandwich.

    And since it's the holidays, my wife makes a great 7 layer cookie. yum!

    Reward eating is common, but be careful. It's much easier to consume calories than it is to burn them off through exercise.

    I have been working pretty hard the past couple of weeks to lost about 5 pounds. Well I did but now I am gaining it all back plus more with all of the holiday food. :-)

    I did that last year and even lost 5 lbs. during the holidays. Before Thanksgiving this year I injured my back while lifting a suitcase as we checked out of our condo in Mexico. Haven't been able to tie my shoes, much less excersize and have gained 5 lbs. before eating any holiday goodies. Bah humbug!

    Hey
    I definitely workout so that i do not have to change my eating habits.
    As I entered into my 30's, the metabolism just isnt what it used to be.
    Have to workout extra in order to be able to eat as i always have.
    i do eat healthy, but do not want to count calories or feel guilty for eating.

    It could be worse. We are in the middle of winter and you could be doing the hibernation thing. Only venturing out to go to work if work is outside the home and shopping. Then while curled up under the covers eating that apple pie and a ton of other carbs and fats. If you are at least raising your metabolism working out you are giving yourself a shot plus the time working out is time your aren't eating.

    running is a great way to eat guilt free! the only problem is the more you eat the more miles you have to put in and it can become very time consuming & even dangerous if you decide to quit one or the other.

    The 7 Layer Cookies are AWESOME, and are particularly good when still warm!

    I have to admit that I'm off the mark right now in terms of excercise. I've slowed down on the eating though, so things should even out soon!

    Im not into working out to eat more! I am taking Vitamins to be able to have a good appetite while eating, but no matter how hard I eat I still have the same weight than before.

    The fact that you work out hard will always make you more hungry than you would be if you didn't work out.. Try this, Eat good during the week as you work out and enjoy foods you wouldn't normally have during the week, i.e. fatty and High carb food, on the weekend or if possible just on sunday. If you follow this and only eat bad one day a week you can eat everything you want in that one day and it gives you something to look forward to after all your hard working out. This is what I did and recommended when I was a personal trainer in earlier years
