Apologies if this is in the wrong forum first of all...
Just wanted to get an idea how others feel when you train on a reduced calorie diet. I'm eating very well at the moment (staying well away from refined sugars, cakes, crisps...all the bad stuff) and limiting my calorie intake to 1900. As well as getting fitter in terms of being able to run for longer, I'm wanting to shed as much fat as possible. I'm 39, 12st and 5ft 10in. Currently running 10.24 per mile and have been doing for a few months now. I'm planning on reaching a 10k for my next goal however....and this is the reason for my post.
On my rest days, I'm feeling absolutely ravenous (I mean I could literally devour the contents of the fridge) and pretty tried out. I'm steadfast in my goals but could do with hearing from others as to whether you come up against the same thing. Is working through increased hunger the normal path to shedding excess fat or is there something other that I could be doing?
Thanks in advance for any advice/words of wisdom.
