Ok, I've heard of and experienced delayed-onset muscle aches (am in fact living that right now). But is there such a thing as delayed-onset hunger?
On Saturday, I participated in a 9-hour endurance event that involved lots of running, swimming, and throwing, among other things. During the event, I didn't feel terribly hungry, and I pretty much just ate normally (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks). I did have some energy gels to keep me going in between.
Sunday I wasn't terribly hungry, and again just ate normally. I didn't log, but I think my calories were actually a little low for the day.
Today, however, I am eating everything in sight. I'm at 1050 calories eaten so far, and still have 9 more hours before bed. I just can't seem to convince my brain that I've eaten enough.
Has anyone else experienced this? How do you stop it?
