I'm training for my first marathon since going primal 6 months ago. Some how I have managed to gain 5lbs in the last month. I'm a 5'1" now 119lb woman, so I don't think it is muscle. I haven't been tracking macros, so I plan to start tracking again. My training is 1 long run every other week (I'm up to 14 miles), plus 3 runs of 3-7 miles each week, plus hiking and walking with my family. I feel really good and am easily maintaining a faster pace than I could in the past (I've run 6 marathons pre-primal.) I seem to be craving pistachios (they are salted). I suspect them as the source of my weight gain. What nutrient is my body likely after? I've tried salting my water and that doesn't seem to help. What macros are best to increase when I increase calories to accommodate my running?
