a ittle background - 39yo, 20+ yrs of training/racing, Cat 2, 6’2" and historically around 168lb for the last 10yrs.
I ramped up my training to around 80ish CTL this spring/summer just due to extra time on my hands, and after COVID, i eat alot more at home (ie, healthier/less junk), and consequently have dropped to 160lb. This isnt exactly what I wanted - i dont feel as good as I do around 165-168. I feel like I eat enough and Im not hungry, but obviously, i need/want to add some more calories.
Should i just add a meal replacement shake or something every day, or is there a healthier/better way to add a material amount of calories to my diet?
