Eli5: why does hunger go away after exercising?

Blood flow from your stomach gets redirected to your muscles. I am a hardcore cyclist. Your hunger is largely just habbits and an empty stomach. You still have a lot of blood glucose at this point. However if you keep pushing in physical activity, you will eventually hit a figurative wall when you run out of blood sugar. At that point you will become extremely weak suddenly and there is no quick way to bounce back from that type of “hunger.”
