Is running beneficial if I cannot achieve a calorie deficit, meaning my calorie intake minus burn remains the same? I have a difficult time being hungry.
My current workout regimen is running 3 mi 3x a week and lifting weight 3-4 days. After running, I usually feel famished and eat a lot of food so I don't think that running actually produces a calorie deficit. Lifting weights is the same way, however that builds muscle mass even if I am in a calorie surplus and gaining fat in addition. But if my fat stays the same because I make up the calories burned during running by eating, does running do anything good for me and should I redistribute those days on lifting weights that I know benefit me despite my inability to be in a calorie deficit?
