I'm not quite sure how to explain my problem. I am struggling to get enough calories as I am training more. I know it's important to eat with in 30 minutes after training (carb:protien, 4:1) but often my training backs right into lunch or dinner time, so end up just eating a meal instead of a small recovery meal and then a regular meal. And often, my training ends near a meal and I end up just waiting to eat. For example, if I get back from a swim/run at 5:30pm and eat a shake or pb&j + milk, I won't be hungry for dinner with my family at 6:30pm. But if I skip it, I miss the benefit of the post run meal/snack and I also miss those calories.
I struggle to fit snacks in during the day for some reason. It always feels to close to a meal or I am heading out the door to work out and don't want to train on a full stomach. Anybody else had to figure this out?
