It’s known some people get hungry when training… Maybe you should eat at a different time, like a bigger meal after training if that’s a case?
Of course exercise isn’t needed for fat-loss but it may be helpful for some and less helpful for others… And probably needed for people like me or my SO as we just can’t avoid overeating without being at least a bit active… (At least I don’t gain fat when overeating or just super slowly but it’s still not good. I still do exercise for energy and health, I stall either way but theoretically it may help me Hopefully more muscles will help more but that part comes slowly…)
It matters how much you exercise too. It’s simple for me as exercise is always good for my calorie balance but if I exercise much, I can’t avoid fat-loss as I just don’t eat much more than normal. I just can’t be super active for longer term to see its effect Maybe it would change than anyway…?
Maybe you should change your woe a bit to be able to lose fat, no matter if you exercise?
Probably to lose fat. Many of us can’t just eat as much as we fancy (or even “need” on our not ideal woe and keto can be very much not ideal, I need many tricks to have a chance at a calorie deficit so I usually stall on keto) as it’s way too much. Yes, ideally we just get satiated and lose fat but it’s just not what happens for many of us. I never noticed my carb intake matters at all, only my calories. Even if carbs matter for someone, calories do too.
I am against forced calorie restriction in nearly all cases, though. It should come naturally just like fasting A tiny bit effort may be needed but it should be enjoyable. But I never lose fat so I understand if someone ignores me and forces the stuff, each to their own. As long as they don’t harm their bodies or mental state…
