After I workout I'm never hungry, which I feel like is odd because most people are. I can workout before breakfast and not be hungry all day. However I know I need to eat something because I need to refuel. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on small meals that would help with the refueling without making me feel like I'm eating a lot when I'm not really hungry.

Depends upon the length of the workout and intensity. I usually will hit a banana or avocado with lots of water. Pre-workout I try to time about 45 min off of a meal or will drink a whole fruit and vegetable blend with some Epic protein powder. I'm normally not hungry either unless I do an hour of cardio. Whether it is C25k or hiking.

I, also, am not hungry after working out. I think it's because the workout, whether exercising or running, causes some kind of hormones to go into the blood. I've been trying to do intermittent fasting, so this works quite well for me. On days I run I do drink coffee with zero carb almond creamer.

Since this is an old post, you have probably figured things out, but I think having an intermittent fasting schedule might be a good idea. That way you can set a time to eat and a time to stop eating each day. Reddit has some good information on intermittent fasting.
