    How long do you wait before u go do cardio. Because when I used to be hungry after the cardio, I figured out that it was because I took way too long to digest my food and then I did cardio. Maybe thats what u do, I dnt know.
    I seem to receive alot of P.M's on nutrition advice, training & among other general subjects, please give me time to reply, I don't mind answering your questions, thanks! Ladies and Gents.

    You sure will be hungry, running for 38 mins uses up all your glycogen stores, therefore your body will send signals for carbs such as pasta to replenish your glycogen stores, and that is perfectly rational because your body is actually HELPING you in that scenario, carbs (high GI) such as pasta, white rice, etc...are perfect after a long session of cardio because these High GI carbs block the release of cortisol (which lowers your metabolism) and keeps your body burning at a faster rate after your workout. a good figure to aim for is a meal that contains around 90g of carbs and 45g of protein to benefit from a faster metabolism and to avoid catabolism

    Hope this helps

    What's wierd for me is that I'm usually far from hungry after I do an intense cardio session. I have to force myself to down my carbs and protein shake.

    thats your problem man you are only eating three meals. You should eat 6-7 meals 2-3 hours apart. Since you are doing cardio i assume that you are cutting so try to consume around 2,500 calories spread throughout the day.

    His cardio is far from intense. A 3 mile run in 38:00 minutes means he has 12:30 minute mile times, basically a fast walk...

    EDIT: I'm not saying this to be mean, I'm just saying you will get hungry on low-intesnity cardio. You should be far from hungry like bignbuff said on HIIT

    After you run you burn off most of what you ate if not all of it. Your body is probably a little tired and needs energy which equal calories. Your probably hugry like anyone else, just eat and lift.

    I've been avoiding cardio as of late, as even just a few minutes of jogging/running on treadmill would make me ravenously hungry the entire rest of the day. Just got back into my MMA routine, and that's making me super hungry too. But what do you mean, Abyss, if we do cardio without food in our system that will lead to the hunger? What's a good time table/window to use as far as when to eat if we want to get some cardio in?
