Last year during SSB2, I suffered a lot from anxiety and irritiability after the workouts. I felt like I was not able to recover in time to handle even the Low Volume plan (I have now learned about periodising nutrition and am finding the workouts and post-workout periods to be fine).
In a discussion at the time, my friend had asked me if I was eating enough. To which I replied - my weight is not dropping, so I must be eating enough
So a year later, and still thinking about the issues I had encountered, I am wondering if it’s possible to under-eat on the bike, but also not lose any weight?
Surely if I was under eating, it would lead to weight loss over a period of weeks/months? Or is it possible that you can under eat during times when you need it, and compensate during times you dont, and that would result in weight holding steady but also causing me to experience the stress?
PS I have already identified other issues that likely caused/contributed to the stress but this question has lingered on my mind.
