Ive been eating less over the last few weeks and have seen a lose in weight and appetite, enough where some fellow gym members and coworkers have made positive remarks. I am following the 5/3/1 program Trimvarate, with strongman stuff as my assistance work, usually one exercise of very high reps (20ish) and another exercise event related, following the main event.
My daily calorie intake is:
3000kcals on weightlifting days
2500kcals on non-weightlifting days
It has worked out pretty good so far, but the accumulation of hunger is starting to kick in: I’m feeling less motivated to hit the gym, I feel slightly more tired overall, having a little trouble concentrating, brain fog, and of course I am more hungry. Does anyone have any ideas to combat these side effects?
