I don't think I exercise excessively but I did a long run at the weekend and cannot stop eating this week. I try not to have too many protein shakes during the week but do top up with them, eat loads of fruit, veg and nuts and then end up raiding the kids sweet tin. I think I eat reasonably well during the day but would like to increase the amount of exercise I do over the next few months. Is more protein the answer? I don't live in the uk and meat is really expensive. I end up craving and eating massive amounts of carbs. I mainly do crossfit, run and swim.
I had this problem when marathon training last year. My training is now more varied (Crossfit, cardio sessions) and have found that upping my fat % has helped me feel full ('good' fats obviously). I'm now on 30% fat, 30% protein and 40% carbs on the advice of a nutritionist.
