Increasing your exercise or starting an exercise program can often make us hungrier. If you are tyring to lose weight or increase performance that can be frustrating. Healthy and well-timed snacks are the key.

Enjoy a carbohydrate–rich snack that offers up some protein within an hour before starting training or exercise and within 30 minutes after training or exercise (if lasts 1 hour).

Try a banana and a serving of string cheese, apple slices topped with nut butter, whole–grain cereal with skim milk, a bowl of hearty vegetable soup, or a Greek yogurt and blueberries.
