    I train with heavy-bag in morning mon,fri 45min 80-85%h/r
    and tue-thur more of conditioning workout with jumping rope,shadow-boxing,heavy bag (Hard)for 20min then do 20 push-ups (poly)25 sit-ups,4x
    take a break for 1min and do 20 jump squats,50cruntchs 4x followed by a nice c/d of streching.

    I started drinking whey/orange or strawberries around 150cal(was doing bag training fasted (not good)
    Main things is i don't want fatigue during day get after breakfast/mid-morning

    Only thing I could recommend is eating more carbs for your pre-workout meal. I make sure I get 30% of my daily carb intake 1.5-2 hours pre-workout.

    eat more bro, don't be scared. I was scared at first too. When I calculate up my daily maintenance in fitday it's literally a little over 4800 cals based on how active I am day in and day out. And I stay lean eating well over 4000.

    I think im burning around 2000cals a day with just my exercise(training) if not its close.
    Around 600 on avg.morning with just a shake or with a piece of fruit(heavy-bag 45min)
    Then eve lifting int for 45-60min depends on how fast/rest and then i do hiit after and just sprinting which i do but its either hills/sleds or i do sprints with box-jumps like i'll do 2 sets of box's sprint 10x 2 box's run 10min/jog 10min to cooldown.
    I thought that after my morning training that my breakfast could be slowing the carbs i need post because of the fat?I've upping my cals around 50-100 every coulpe days to feel a difference
    Im losing fat alittle weight with out doing much during day(really can't fatigue)I try but it's taxing on me.
    Problem is i'll eat more then i'll get that energy and train even harder and longer.Im such an idioit!!

    First day of new meal plan and other then normal post meal fatigue which i think i fixed.
    I had a awesome workout hit hard took 45min usally 60min. and finished it off with run to local hill for 12 sprints and ran home.

    Morning training was alittle rough but kinda knew that (little carbs on sunday)
    but got though it.
    Real test is tomorrow on how i feel then on sunday for weigh in.
    Hopefully feel good and in the mid to low 10%range.

    Actally feel better without carbs in post shake!

    Day three of meal plan.Still have fatigue during day.My cals are around3100 after adding up.So im eating 200-300 less then i was.
    I think i need to add 200-300 more because 3 days ago i was 180.6 10.8%this mornin 182 at 10.4% So with my guessing of bodying slowing to save cals for training seems to be a fact.

    with that being said since i built muscle my protein is good so i mainly do hiit training should i add carbs or fat??Eating around 360 carbs now not to much fat.

    Is it actually hunger? Or is it low blood sugar, which obviously itself causes extreme hunger?

    My guess is that it actually is low blood sugar. Overtraining can lead to hypoglycemia symptoms, specifically reactive hypoglycemia. Where your blood sugar drops after a meal and you will get EXTREMELY hungry because of it. You think you need more cals, but in reality it's because you are having blood sugar issues.

    Just something to keep in mind speaking from personal experience.

    Im not hungry at all.I eat at set times of around 2 1/2-3hrs and my gut will start growling anound 30min before i eat.I just use to get energy after a meal now the opp.
    I say this becuase if i was more active during day i'd need more cals.
    Im starving in morning after downing a whey shake and training for 40-50min im not even done and my gut is rumbling.I eat breakfast and fight of fatigue and do my thing.

    Since im not working now i do something mid-morn to get an extra boost which seems to work.
    Today 100 tire flips in 10min (getting it done!)and a nice run with a sled to cooldown.
