View Full Version : More muscle = more appetite?

05-16-2003, 07:00 AM
For those of you who have gained weight... I "attempt" to diet down often but Im just so f*cking hungry and not disciplined enough not to eat. Also, my crazy ass metabolism has me starving all day, but I also gain weight easily :rolleyes: I was thinking that I should just go with the eating thing and try to put on some muscle, and was just wondering if more muscle is going to drive my appetite even more, or if it will stay the same. My reasoning is, more muscle will burn more calories, so when I am bigger I will be able to burn off the fat... Thanks.

Yes, muscles increase metabolism, hence increased appetite.

If a high metabolism makes you hungry, then how come a fatass with a slow metabolism like me is always hungry, but a hardgainer with a fast metabolism has a hard time eating enough?

ive neer heard of a fast metabolism making your hungrier.

but if you do get hungry easily, maybe you should try eating more fibrous veggies like broccoli or cauliflower which could help keep you fuller, longer. just a suggestion :)

of course it makes you hungrier....you burn calories faster.....when your body needs cals....you are hungry...hence you will be hungrier faster/more often
