Nutrition for Runners is the only nutrition program for runners designed by both a USA Track & Field certified running coach and a Registered Dietitian.
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.
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.
Soon, we started reviewing the most popular diet books for runners.
“Eating healthy” seems simple, right? But simple ain’t easy.
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!
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!
There’s no shortage of food products sold to us with billions of marketing dollars – that aren’t actually food!
