Week two! The week felt a little lighter in regards to the volume of food. This is in part due to a decrease in training, as well as the conditions of the week (it was rainy most of the week). I intended to have a higher training volume over the weekend (with two 14er summits), which resulted in both less training later in the week to save my legs and a lower metabolism. I also camped over the weekend, which is why there are so many straight forward foods like Cliff Bars included.

One of the concepts behind Always Growing is that nutrition plans should be sustainable and balanced. When I think of this, one thing comes to mind - you should never be hungry. I tell all my clients this. My goal is for them to never be starving throughout the day or going to bed hungry, and this is something I've been making as a priority in my own nutrition as well. Sometimes I get picked on for it, i.e. "Wow, you eat a lot."

You can follow any nutrition plan you want, but if you're hungry and starving yourself, you're ignoring a basic primal pathway in our bodies and our brains. When you're hungry, you should eat. It doesn't mean you'll gain weight. It doesn't mean you're too weak to resist. It means your body is asking for some energy, vitamin, or nutrient that it needs to function well. And fueling your body properly means you'll likely be happier in the long run.
