Congratulations on losing those 5 kg. You can increase your energy intake on the days when you exercise by eating more unrefined and unprocessed carbohydrates (wholewheat bread, high-bran cereals, energy drinks, fruit and fruit juices). For tips on exercise diets click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' and read the articles on 'Diets for Sportsmen and women' esp the ones on carbohydrates. Increasing your carb intake moderately when you do brisk exercise should not cause weight gain. The carbs are used for fuel.
