Should You Eat Fewer Calories On Non-Training Days?

When you are trying to lose weight the idea of “oh I’m training today so I’ll have more calories but tomorrow I’m not gonna train so I’ll eat fewer calories” seems plausible. Mathematically, there is some logic to it — you don’t need those calories because you don’t burn them off so why the fuck would you eat them?
