I do about the same thing every day...maybe 100-150 more calories on workout days, which doesn't really seem to me like all that much.
I do work out first thing in the morning, though, and I'm wondering if the workout slows my digestive metabolism or whatever that would be, similar to what MOD is talking about in his post here.
Otherwise my eating habits are basically the same whether I'm working out one day in a row or three, or resting: I have a cup or two of kefir with cinnamon around 11 or thereafter, maybe some plain tea before that, and then eat something around 2 and again around 6 or 7.
So it seems like the only variable is the early-morning workout.
