I have to admit, I've never really noticed myself that I get any hungrier than I would do after any other amount of exercise, but it's interesting that you've noticed that in yourself and I'll take note next time I go. Any sort of exercise is going to make you hungry in a way, and so the fact that you are, I guess just shows that swimming really is one of the best forms of exercises that you can do.
I most certainly agree, it doesn't really seem like you are working out. Not only that, you can do it all year round since there are a lot of places that have heated pools.
I really enjoy swimming. I am in pretty good shape so I don't do it because it is easy on your joints, but I do it because I enjoy it. Swimming feels really good and on a hot summer day it is a lot more enjoyable than going out and running. I know some people that swim even in the winter but I don't think I could do that.
Swimming has always been a part of my life. I love it for the exercise and also because I find it extremely relaxing. There are so many health benefits of swimming that I can't help but think that everyone here should take it up. As far as low-impact exercises go, I think it's the best.
