Suggest you eat more fat instead of carbs to curb your cravings.
I have started working out last week. I have added walking and am adding in body weight exercises tomorrow and sprinting on Friday. I have noticed a definite increase in appetite. I'm 5'5" 210 and female with a large frame. Today I ate more carbs then usual. Yesterday was more indicative to what I eat carb wise.

Fark!!!! Ok, I'll post it here. Stupid internet
Yesterday I ate 1,554 cals, 102.3g fat, 46.6g carbs and 116.1g proteins.
Today 2,198 cals, 136.6g fat, 92.6g carbs(darn red potatoes), 144.5g protein
Here's me today:
1,401 cal, 164.9 g fat, 23.1 g carb, 72.6 g protein. Not hungry all the time--especially after I dropped sugar completely & got my carbs back down under 30.
Sugar/chocolate really induce carb cravings in me and more carbs = more calories = less fat loss for me.
I don't eat starchy carbs (anymore!) and I do intense LHT 20 min 2 x/week, walk 5-7 hours/week and do dance sprints once a week. Feeling like my body is more keto-adapted now, after 2 months of vlc.

I'm losing because I've lost 15 lbs in 5 weeks. I'm just concerned because even after I eat lunch, my stomach can start growling. I don't get carb cravings anymore. I know my fat is pretty good and my protein is good. I also think my carbs are good with the exception of today. I'm just trying to figure out why in the hell I'm hungry.
How do you keep carbs so low?
It's something we see on this forum a lot, but so far I'm finding it to be true for me: eating more fat curbs my hunger better. I remembered that one of my favorite restaurants in Dayton put a big pat of butter atop their steaks, so I've started doing that. It is so delicious. In addition to olive and coconut oil, I'll toss in some flavorful sesame oil at times. Yummmmm.
Last thing: our body's signals for thirst and hunger overlap quite a bit—thirst can actually present as hunger. With your increased activity, you might be needing more water. If you're feeling hungry and think you shouldn't be needing food, try drinking 4–8 ounces of water (with a slice of lemon in it if you prefer). If you're still hungry 20 minutes or so later, it's probably genuine hunger.
maybe people who are super fat adapted don't experience that, but I sure do. I increase/decrease my carbs with my activity level as well. If I'm in sloth mode, probably 50g/day. Active-to-very active and I get closer to 100-150/day.
