As you add on lean muscle mass, does your appetite increase or stay relatively the same? That'd be sweet if it stayed the same.

Man, I was kinda hoping Rob Wolf or Doc. G could chime in on this... or anybody who's relatively knowledgeable on this.

Kurt, I believe it would increase as LBM is more metabolically active than adipose tissue.

IIRC every pound of LBM increases your metabolic needs by about somewhere in the range of 30-70 cals/day. I hope I remembered correctly. :lol:

Kurt-

If one is active appetite very closely matches activity level...so in general, yes if one increases LBM hunger will increase a bit as well.

That said hunger has a few different manifestations. Hormonal hunger caused form wildly fluctuating insulin levels can make one very edgy and irritable. If insulin is controlled one typically finds it a chore to eat the food necessary to maintain activity level to say nothing of gaining muscle.

So if you are "worried" about increases in hunger I'd be inclined to think you may have a bit too much fluctuation in insulin levels.
