As my training volume goes up I want to constantly eat. Is this OK? Think of your body like a machine. As you exercise the machine more, it needs more fuel. It’s not abnormal to need nearly double your normal amount of calories when training kicks into gear. Particularly during longer bouts of exercise (lasting more than two hours), the body needs more fuel and will start to break down and become injured if you’re not careful. So feed the beast.
