Overtrained or undernourished?

Every Monday morning, I come into the office with a giant load of groceries. I keep the kitchen at work and my desk fully stocked with food. I try to keep up, but I am constantly hungry. I eat all day long--constantly making trips to and from the kitchen. I also workout twice a day, most days of the week and my Saturday long workouts usually burn upwards of 4000 calories.

 

I wasn't able to increased my training volume without a complementary caloric increase. Active Expert Matt Fitzgerald’s latest article, The Starving Runner. explains this delicate balance of fueling and training. More importantly, he mentions the importance of timing which is something I now realize is equally as important. Does anyone have advice to lend me and the rest of the community for timing meals while meeting nutritional requirements for increased athletic performance? I think we can all benefit from your experiences so please share--thanks for your participation!
