It is good to hear that you have started to attend your gym again, because exercise is always beneficial. To prevent yourself from getting so hungry in the evening that you need to eat Before you go to the gym, you will have to make quite sure that you eat a balanced breakfast (cereal or porridge with low-fat milk or yoghurt, wholewheat or low-GI toast with low-fat cottage cheese and fruit juice or fruit) and a balanced lunch (wholewheat or low-GI sandwiches with tuna or egg or cottage cheese or peanut butter and salad, fruit and low-fat yoghurt). If these balanced meals still leave you feeling hungry before exercise, then have some low-fat yoghurt, or Pro-Vitas with cottage cheese or dried fruit and a handful of peanuts, or an energy bar at about 4 pm. Then go to the gym and when you have recovered from the exercise (drink some diluted fruit juice or an energy drink during and after gym to keep your blood sugar and electrolyte levels steady and prevent dehydration, then you can eat a light evening meal (e.g. pasta with lean meat or a vegetables sauce, a scrambled egg on low-GI bread with salad, yoghurt with fruit or lean meat or fish with boiled vegetables and/or salad, etc).
