I'm a serious runner and have been for a long time. I don't plan on giving it up since I am passionate about the sport and do it for the love of it.
I know endurance training increases hunger and massive carb spikes also increase hunger as well. I am wondering if anyone has advice on how to manage hunger levels. I know the classic strategy is to eat more fats, etc. but I also notice that when I do this, my carb intake decreases and affects my training and performance.
Thus far, I've been trying to strike a balance and "fill up" on bulky vegetables to get my fill of carbs and also maintain some hunger satiety. I add moderate amounts of fat and protein to this as well. But this leaves me feeling pretty uncomfortably full and a bit constipated from all the fibrous matter.
I figure though if I concentrate solely on eating large amounts of fat/protein, my carb intake will take a hit and my training will suffer...any ideas on how to balance refueling without feeling hungry all the time?
