Excerpted from Never Say Diet: Make Five Decisions and Break the Fat Habit for Good By Chantel Hobbs I actually love my daily exercise. My problem is that I am so hungry afterward. Did this happen to you, and how did you balance this when you were trying to lose weight? I learned about this as I became more fit.
