(technically breaking the fast).
A note on your note: I would guess that the caffeine in the green tea both curbed your hunger while fasting, and then contributed to your hunger when you broke the fast. It's an appetite suppressant, and it also causes your insulin levels to rise and drop similar to sugar, which probably magnified your hunger post workout.
I very rarely have caffeine, so I feel that effect pretty significantly when I do: not hungry, not hungry, not hungry STARVING.
