LIGHT AND FAST

IN RUNNING TERMS, LEAN GENERALLY MEANS QUICK, BUT TOO MUCH WEIGHT LOSS CAN DETRIMENT PERFORMANCE. NUTRITIONIST MICHELLE NEWITT EXPLAINS HOW TO TRIM THE FAT, WITHOUT SUFFERING AN ENERGY HIT

To be the best runner you can be, you need to be as lean as possible, but if you don’t eat enough you aren’t going to have enough energy to perform at your best. Luckily, there are ways to lose body fat without compromising performance – it’s just a case of being streetwise with your food choices.

It’s often believed that if you do enough running then you can eat whatever you like and still be lean. Although this may work for some – those blessed with a super fast metabolism – the majority of people need to be mindful of what they put into their bodies if they want to be as lean as possible. There’s a saying, you can’t out train a bad diet, and it’s true; often one’s appetite goes up in line with the volume of training so if you have a bad diet, and by that I mean regularly consuming a lot of sugar or processed foods, then the elusive leanness you’re after may never come, even with a high volume of running.

About Men's Running

I once had the pleasure of interviewing Usain Bolt. Amid all the joking and theatrics, I asked him what his nutrition secret was. Beckoning me to come closer, he looked me in the eye and said: “Fried chicken.” e fastest man in the world was fuelled by a well-known high street chain of fast food – one man’s fuel is another man’s poison. For most of us, this would be a recipe for disaster. At Men’s Running, we’ve never been evangelical about food but have consistently promoted a healthy eating plan to fuel better performances. is special issue tells you everything you need to know about food types, what to eat and when. We’ve also packed in some mouth-watering recipes so that you can get busy in the kitchen and amaze your friends and family with your culinary skills! Of course, ‘fuel’ doesn’t just mean food. In the last 15 years, sports nutritionists have been extolling the virtues of various products like creatine and whey protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. We explain why and how you can use these products as part of a healthy diet. Enjoy this special issue and fuel your body to even better running in 2019!
