Keep up with eating your timed meals each and every day. Your breakfast remains just as important as your lunch and dinner. You have spent several weeks building up muscle to adapt to the distance. Don’t highly restrict your calories at this point or your performance will fall. Give yourself the permission to eat each and every meal to maintain the muscle mass you’ve acquired. Worried about overeating? Then make sure your portion is controlled rather than skipping meals. Take care of what you have worked so hard to attain.
