I'm somewhat overweight (BMI of 28) and mainly sit behind my desk all day, so I've been on quite a calorie deprived diet. I go running about three times a week for half an hour and occasionally go cycling. I also get sufficient sleep, so I get plenty of rest.
My vegetarian diet feels pretty balanced, I get sufficient fibers, fruit, vegetables and eat meat-replacements.
So now I'm wondering how do your eating habits affect your recovery?
Do you need some minimal amount of certain nutrients when working out or is there no need to worry as long as you don't have any physical complaints?
I was wondering about this, because I was starting to get more DOMS, while I didn't significantly change my workouts but did reduce my calorie intake.
I'd like some more specific examples on how to balance calorie restriction with full spectrum nutrient replacement (Both macro and micro).
