I don't take any days off from training; mostly because there is no need, besides finding the time to. Like someone said above, you just need to structure your exercise plan so that certain areas are given a chance to recover, etc. Certainly, the fitter you get, the less recovery time you'll need. I also don't think exercising when you're tired and stiff is a bad idea; there's always UT2 if everything else fails.

If you are going to take days off because you need to recover, then I imagine it would be best to break them it shouldn't take 2 days for you to recover, and you'd just be wasting a rest day.

You should eat depending on how much work you're doing on that particular day, and also what type of work that was.
