Is it normal...

Post by fair singer on Tue Sep 01, 2009 7:37 am

This is a topic to put up things that you find whilst exercising that you're not sure are really normal and you'd like to check with Garthy and Taz and other exercisers.

So I'll put mine first:

Is it normal to be hungry ALL the time now I exercise more? What should I be eating now? I always have breakfast but end up starving after a session in the gym. What can I have for breakfast to prevent this?

Is it normal to like doing the cardio parts of your fitness rountine but to feel silly doing any work with weights as that's where all the burly men are confused

But they all look at you as if you're crazy for being in 'their' section scratch

You think they'd be happy to have hot women around!

Tell us boys, why do you look at us like that when we're doing weights 'n' stuff???

Your body will be operating at a higher metabolic rate when you exercise so it is natural to feel hungrier. Eat complex carbs every 3-4 hours, this will provide a slow release of energy throughout the day and prevent hunger pangs :-)

No!!! This is a common issue for females in the gym and blokes who are not happy with their physiques! If it really bothers you then try and work round it by exercising at different times when it is quiet or find a gym where there is a seperate room for bodybuilders or a womens only gym. Remember though your goals are important and you should not feel intimidated by going to the gym so get in there and do your stuff!
