Are you ready to finally ENERGIZE your runs, drop those last 10 pounds & fuel right for your workouts (with NO “dieting”)?

We'll show you exactly what to eat for maximum energy, how to train for weight loss, and the nutrition secrets for better running performance

Nutrition for Runners is the most comprehensive fueling and diet program that exists for runners. See how to dial in your nutrition and nail your diet…

  • Even if you have no time to cook (we have “make ahead” and simple, easy recipes)
  • Even if you struggle to lose weight with running (we have training plans specifically built for weight loss)
  • Even if you don’t like “healthy” food (we hate bland food too!)

Our nutrition philosophy helps runners fuel smarter so they can run faster. Imagine if you could feel like this…

“Anne has been amazing and life changing! She has given me the tools and motivation to make sustainable life changes that not only make me feel better about myself, but also healthier.” – Kristina

“Jason is an excellent coach and I cannot thank him enough. I’ve kicked my ITBS issues, ran strong after a torn meniscus repair, dropped almost 68 minutes off my marathon PR and have the confidence to continue running and racing into my 40’s. Keep up the great work! Cheers.” – Greg

“In addition to providing delicious, easy recipes and helpful strategies about planning meals and exercise, Anne offered a lot of suggestions about staying mindful and ensuring that I feel “in control” about food.” – Rachel

“Jason helped me plan for my first half marathon and I couldn’t have been more pleased with his level of detail and precision. His plan helped me relax and take the stress out of training; he let me know that the goal could be achieved. I’ve always avoided running, but his plan helped me enjoy the process and my race time was much faster than I ever could have imagined. Thanks Jason!” –Brendan

Barbara - Running“The last time I ran mileage like I’m running now I had pain and discomfort and never really felt recovered. I’m older now but I still feel much better than I did in my younger years. The training is better for my recovery now and I don’t have any pain.

Jason’s training has helped me lose weight, and because I’m able to recover so much better I can get a lot more out of each workout. I feel better than I’ve felt in a long time, even though I’m older.” – Barbara

A special note from Jason & Anne:

Hey there!Jason and Anne

Imagine looking in the mirror in the morning and smiling at what you see. Then, you lace up your shoes and run a challenging workout where you feel powerful, strong and energized.

The next day, you feel fully recovered and ready to tackle your next run. And you’re EXCITED to run because you’ve fallen in love with the sport all over again.

That’s our goal with this program. We want you to be at your goal weight while being properly fueled for all of your runs so you feel great and perform at your best.

And don’t worry! You won’t be bored with technical jargon or the intricacies of phytonutrient biochemistry (YAWN). No counting calories and no worrying about percentages or ratios. Zip. Zero.

As a Registered Dietitian (and marathoner!) and a USA Track & Field certified running coach, we’re bringing you the most tested, proven nutrition program for runners so you can unlock your ideal diet.

Best,
Jason & Anne

The Power of Nutrition: Sky High Recovery, Performance & Energy

Nutrition for Runners took nearly a year of research, interviews with the brightest minds in sports nutrition and coaching, thousands of dollars to create, and relied on our deep experience coaching runners to new personal bests and helping athletes nail their nutrition.

In this program, you’ll get specific lessons on how to develop the ideal runner’s diet. But this isn’t a bunch of theory – it’s real-world meal guides, runner-friendly recipes, day-by-day training plans to help you lose weight, and it’s all about getting you incredible results.

But first, ask yourself, “What would improving my nutrition do for me?”

Let me tell you: you’ll have more energy and focus during the day (even AFTER a tough workout). You’ll be able to run more miles – and harder workouts – with faster recovery. With energy levels through the roof and recovery at an all-time high, running will seem easier even as you’re training harder.

This same program helped Jason tie his weekly mileage record (91) without even feeling worn down. He even had higher than normal energy during the day to get up early, play with his daughter, and knock out 2.5hr long runs in the mountains at altitude.

How would that make you feel? Well, it’s possible for you too!

In this program, we’ll show you exactly how to do this, plus even more. You’ll get dietitian-approved meal and snack recipes that are quick and easy to prepare. We hate spending all day in the kitchen and we’re sure you do too!

We’ll show you how to eat so you don’t binge on snacks at night or under-fuel for workouts leaving you sluggish – even if you have cravings after long runs (who doesn’t?) or when your mileage increases.

But when did nutrition get so hard?

When Jason and Anne began creating Nutrition for Runners, their goal was to create a program that was scientifically sound, effective, but also easy to implement.

Soon, we started reviewing the most popular diet books for runners.

And it was an exercise in disappointment, boredom, and frustration: most books focus on riveting topics like biochemistry and assigning scores to each morsel of food you put in your mouth.

Do we really need more technical jargon about the processing of phytonutrients?

Do you want to spend half your day calculating the exact percentage of carbohydrates you’re eating?

Do we need another book with an entire chapter devoted to the definitions of macronutrients?

No, we really don’t! 

Jason recently said, “I’d rather weave my own running clothes from dryer lint than count calories!” Maybe you feel the same way…

In fact, most nutrition books will bore you to tears (unless you enjoy reading about the hormonal effects of carbohydrate intake…)

See, most nutrition programs focus on the wrong things like calories, nutrient percentages, and nutrient ratios. Or when they give you something useful like a recipe, it has 39 ingredients and some of them are only sold in Portland’s crunchiest organic market.

And some nutrition experts aren’t even runners. This is a big reason why Jason likes working with Anne – she’s run more half marathons than he has!

And other dietitians only focus on weight loss (there’s a lot more to nutrition than just losing weight). Or they write to folks who are walkers, not runners.

We think nutrition for runners has been made too complex and not focused enough on the day-to-day practical needs of everyday runners.

So we created a specific plan that’s useful, easy to read, and simple to use every day.

We know it will help you make better choices with your diet, show you what foods are good for running (and when to eat them), and provide the recipes and specific meal guides that will help you lose weight, run faster, and fuel your workouts.

More important than any press are our results. Where else can you get a proven nutrition program from a certified running coach and a Registered Dietitian?

“I love the simplicity of your approach to nutrition in this program. This confirms that my nutrition is on point, without having to track servings of every food group. It’s so much more sustainable. I can naturally adjust portions based on training volume, and follow the same patterns while traveling too. Thanks!” – Nicole

“It’s been easier to manage my weight while working with Jason. His training helps me keep more focus. It makes me feel so much better to fuel my body properly and it has a huge impact on my workouts and how they feel.” – Jacinthe

“I’ve gotten a lot out of Strength Running as a new runner. It’s difficult to find quality advice for beginners that goes beyond Couch to 5k. Before I found SR I didn’t know how to put together a training plan or strength workout. Now I feel much more confident rather than trying one-off workouts or researching unproven training plans.” – Savannah

“I’ve successfully lost and kept weight off in the past, but every time I felt miserable – hungry, irritable, tired. I thought I was doing “the right things,” but I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. So, I called Anne for help.

I began to enjoy food again. I felt energized after eating rather than sick and tired. I stopped obsessing over counting and measuring, and started to learn to listen to my body. Anne provided strategies that helped me survive and enjoy vacation travel, times of heavy work stress and a finicky husband to cook for. Anne’s helped me make healthy living a part of my life!” – Diane

3 Mind-Boggling Diet Mistakes We Don’t Want You to Make

“Eating healthy” seems simple, right? But simple ain’t easy.

And our #1 goal was to create a proven program that not only works but is easy to follow. As long as you avoid these 3 critical nutrition mistakes, you’ll be on the fast track to a leaner body and faster race times.

Mistake #1: Trying to lose weight while training for a race

Is your goal to lose 5 – 10 pounds so you can run faster by carrying less weight? If so, that’s fantastic: every pound you lose will help you drop about 1-2 seconds per mile in a marathon!

BUT, you probably tried this before and struggled to lose weight while maintaining enough energy to train. And guess what? I’m not surprised!

Dieting simply doesn’t work if you’re also training for a race. The two goals are in conflict and you can’t do both at the same time.

We refuse to let you fail at both your weight loss and race goals.

So we have a better solution: a pre-training weight loss period. And the best part is that we show you exactly what to do with training plans created just for weight loss.

You’ll see the specific running AND strength workouts that burn an enormous number of calories, help you burn more fat (even when you’re not exercising!) and make it easier to lose weight than ever before.

With 3 levels of training plans to choose from, you can start even if you’re a beginner.

Mistake #2: Counting calories and obsessing about numbers

There’s hope if you hate calculating carbohydrate percentages, figuring out nutrient ratios, or assigning every food a “score”- you don’t have to do it!

How liberating is it to know that you don’t have to obsess about numbers? No calorie counting. No weighing your food. We promise.

Because if you’re like us, you don’t have the time or energy to worry about these crazy details. What happened to simply enjoying our food?

Luckily, with every diet approach we researched, with every RD we interviewed and with countless client success stories among runners, nobody ever counted, weighed, or scored their food.

Not only is it unnecessary to fuel your running performance and lose weight, but it’s unsustainable. Dieters who go to the extremes of scoring their food or counting every calorie never stick with this approach because it’s inconvenient.

Measuring your intake and expenditure of calories (or using formulas with complex calculations) is a recipe for poor adherence to the diet, ultimately leading to failure.

Instead, keep it simple! Not only is it easier to stick with a particular way of eating, you won’t go crazy and you can focus on enjoying your food.

We’ll show you exactly how to do this, with an approach that’s simpler, easier to follow, and doesn’t require a math degree.

Mistake #3: Eating “Health Foods”

There’s no shortage of food products sold to us with billions of marketing dollars – that aren’t actually food!

In a world of 100-calorie snack packs, “light” and sugar-free versions of real foods, and Fiber Plus options, it’s a miracle that we can identify what the hell a real food even looks like.

And they’re certainly not helping us lose weight or improve our running. They’re designed in a lab – formulated to be a specific “bliss point” by manipulating sugar, fat, and “mouth feel” to make them irresistible.

But, there’s a better way. What if you could eat FULL FAT foods? Or those with real sugar? Good news, you can!

The Nutrition for Runners program shows you the exact foods that fuel running and can help you lose weight, without you having to buy extra “diet foods.”

And you’ll see the step-by-step strategies for focusing on REAL food – including a “Dietitian Approved” Shopping List.

Imagine not having to limit your food choices… and still be able to reach your weight goals and running faster?

Introducing: The “Nutrition for Runners” Program

This all-new program will show you exactly what to eat for performance and weight loss. With practical lessons and easy to prepare recipes, you’ll see how runners should eat to run faster and feel more energized than ever.

After almost a year of development, thousands of dollars, and interviews with the smartest sports dietitians and coaches in the country, it’s finally ready for you.

What you’ll learn in Nutrition for Runners:Nutrition for Runners

  • Actual Meal Guides that show you how to structure your meals for maximum energy
  • Sample Meal Plans showing you how to plan your meals based on what time of day you run
  • The benefits of “real food” (and which foods are the best for runners)

  • A special, “Ask the Dietitian” Q&A series on how to control sugar cravings, “clean carbs” and more

With step-by-step instructions on what to eat, when to eat it, and how to train for maximum performance we know that you’ll become a better runner with Nutrition for Runners.

In fact, this is the only program created by BOTH a USA Track & Field certified running coach and a Registered Dietitian with a Masters of Public Health in Nutrition.

It’s like having a coach and RD next to you during training, showing you what foods boost energy, what workouts help burn fat, and when to fuel before workouts – without the ongoing cost of a nutrition counselor or coach!

Nutrition Testimonial

I LOVE the recipes and snack ideas!  You weren’t lying when you said they are quick and easy and have ingredients that you can actually find in your local supermarket AND healthy too!  

I have spent so much money on healthy recipe books to find that the ingredients are all weird and you have to go hunting for them at specialty stores. I have 4 of my 5 children and 1 grandchild living at home. I don’t have time for all that.” – Johna

“Before I started running, I was never a skinny person. I was right on the edge of being classified as obese according to BMI. Working with Jason allowed me to lose weight a lot more quickly – about a pound per week for 5 months.” – Kevin

Deb“With Anne’s help, I’m preparing for my first marathon in a healthful way. Anne’s strategies and her attention to detail have helped me re-frame my relationship with food at a comfortable pace.” – Sue

“Now I can run more consistently with much faster recoveries. I have a lot more endurance, a little more speed, but mainly, I don’t feel like I’m going to break any minute. I almost never feel injury-prone; it’s all helped tremendously. Jason is more than worth his going rate and I think more like $250/mo.’” – Deb

“Anne’s realistic approach is contagious, which keeps me motivated and energized. She’s open about the challenges facing everyone trying to lead a full healthy life, but helps you set small, attainable goals to be your healthiest self. I finally feel like I’ve found a nutritionist who has my best interests, not just my successes, at heart.” – Molly

“Jason is all about making it easy to run smarter – not harder. I’m now planning more strategically, getting stronger and I already feel like my running is a lot more fun. If you want to maintain the status quo this program isn’t for you. However, if you want to get into the right mindset, run smarter and do better then you cannot miss out. After 4-weeks my performance, mental state and times are already proving the impact.” – Dave

I’m enjoying the Nutrition for Runners program. There are lots of good advice and I’ve started taking action on them already. I love the recipes and the concepts introduced. You guys did a great job in putting it all together. What I like the most is the focus on whole foods, real foods. I like that a lot!” – Cris

Nutrition FAQ

“Is this a diet?”

No! In fact, Anne and Jason despise diets. When you “go on a diet” you’re essentially limiting the amount and types of food you can eat. We don’t make you do this.

Nutrition for Runners focuses on eating intuitively and we show you strategies for weight management, how to stay full (and limit snacking), and weight loss WITHOUT depriving yourself of foods that you love.

So yes, you can still eat ice cream or a cookie if you love those treats. We’ll show you how – no calorie restriction or “dieting” needed.

“Is Nutrition for Runners a hard copy book?”

No, this is a digital program. With training plans and audio interviews, this is truly a multimedia program that we couldn’t contain on the pages of a printed book.

Once you purchase the program, you’ll get a special link to download the entire program – all of the meal guides, recipes, interviews, training plans, and more. And you can use them on multiple devices.

Plus, no shipping costs!

“Can this program work for vegetarians?”

Nutrition for Runners is focused on whole food nutrition and that includes meat. However, the nutrition lessons and principles are applicable to everyone – even if you’re a vegetarian.

The Cookbook contains recipes for pre-run, post-run, make-ahead lunches, and easy to prepare dinners. And 70% of the recipes are vegetarian (or can easily be made vegetarian).

And the interviews, training plans, and meal guides don’t rely on meat so a vegetarian could see the same success with this program.

“I have a gluten allergy – will this work for me?”

Yes! More than 75% of our recipes are gluten-free or can easily be made gluten-free – so no worries there.

And the rest of the program is universally applicable even if you have celiac disease (pay special attention to the interview with Kristina LaRue, who specializes in allergies).

“The Nutrition for Runners program is amazing. I’ve been slowly learning more about nutrition myself over the last couple of years, and it’s been great to have all this information in one file.

I can tell that you and Anne put SO much work into this, and it’s been great to benefit from all that research and brainpower. So yeah, it’s been awesome. Thanks for all your hard work!” – Alexis

“I just wanted to say that I am really pleased with my Full Package purchase of Nutrition for Runners. I’m already implementing changes to my diet and I’m very excited about the specific race recommendations. I’m a few minutes away from hitting a 90 minute half marathon goal and I truly believe honing down on nutrition will make all the difference.” – Elisa

“With the Nutrition for Runners program my eating habits have improved SO much. The choices I’m making are totally different from what they used to be – I don’t crash in the afternoons and evenings and don’t find myself eating junk food.

I’ve lost weight in the process too, which I’m still incredulous about – doesn’t weight loss mean feeling cranky and starving and deprived? Apparently not :)” – Carol
