Been digging through old threads about dealing with hunger while running high mileage. Some people saying to eat more fruits and veggies. OK but those have like no calories, how is that going to curb hunger? Plus I already eat like 5 pieces of fruit and a ton of veggies a day. Do I need to be eating 10 bananas a day or something?
Then you have a bunch of CrossFit freaks talking about cutting carbs and doing paleo and keto. Almost all the carbs I eat are complex carbs (oats, rice, beans), so is that really that bad for me? Plus, have any of these guys ever run 80 mpw on a low carb diet?
Sorry, kind of ranting but I'm just frustrated. I've always been on the heavy side for a runner, 5'8 150 lbs since college, now I'm pushing 155. Most runners of my height and ability are much lighter. Any suggestions on how I could get leaner?
