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!
