This is not a diet question, I am strict Paleo other than the occasional binge on banana chips after a well earned session however... I am always wanting to workout...

Any ideas why that is? Is it overtrainning that is giving me this problem? I am usually doing one intense bodyweight workout in the morning and then weight lifting later on in the day. I usually do two days on, followed by a rest day... should I be taking more than one day off? Also how do people eat on their rest days, and what types of activities are encouraged on rest days i.e. stretching, light walks, ect.

Any insight on overtraining and its symptoms would be appreciated !

Overtraining canbe relative, it seems unlikely that I'd be able to do a HIIT and resistance training every day, but if it's working for you maybe you're genetically gifted. If you stop noticing gains or other adverse effects then maybe change it up, otherwise, who are we to tell you what's too much. Listen to your body.

The desire to work out is not typically correlated to over training. What is the problem that you think over training is encouraging?
