Hunger and hormones?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hi all. I have become ravenous PWO(post-workout) eating as much as 2,000 kcal over the course of three hours after more of my iontense workouts. I feel addicted to eating under these conditions. I am wondering if this is attributable to including sea salt PWO with potato(and/or other starch of similar types). I have read that sea salt causes excretion of nutrients and initiates secretion of hormones that trigger hunger-pangs. Is this the cause and/or is it the potatoes, insulin spikes and ghrelin(which I know little of and can't find the pertinent sources). I have heard that ghrelin has something to do with satiety and the urge to eat. Perhaps I am necessitous of this caloric load at these times(obviously more than usual is needed to replenish energy and initiate reparation processes). Can anyone out there shed some light on this issue?

From what I've read concerning gluconeogenesis, insulin release via carb-load PWO shuts down the production of HGH stimulated by heavy lifting. I'll eat one HUGE protein/fat feast PWO for the day when my appetite hits. Usually 2 hours later but its been as long as 6 in one instance. I have seen no loss in size/strength. In fact, quite the opposite.

I was suspicious of the carb load but still advise myself its the best option. Why would you wnat to stop the HGH release? HGH released without carbs n'est pas? I forget but vaguely remember reading about it in "the anabolic diet" by De Pasquale.

Done. The answer lingers in the post somewhere but I am still a little in the dark. Ghrelin->hunger->serotonin/carb cravings? Is it mainly the carbs that are inducing hunger?

IMO and from my experience, its the potatoes and the subsequent insulin spike. Whenever I did the PWO carbs, not only was I ravenous but I found I was hungry a few hours later (highly unusual for me). This tells me, I need to stop playing around with sugars. I avoid the typical PWO carbs which stops the HGH release. When I eat a sweet potato, its on a non-workout day as part of my first meal around 11am or 12noon.
