Overview

A unique eating plan for both novice and experienced runners—to help you achieve optimum performance and keep those unwanted pounds off.

If you are a serious runner, or are thinking about starting a running or run/walk program to keep fit and help you lose weight, forget about the traditional food pyramid—or today's low-carb diets. As noted dietitian Madelyn H. Fernstrom, Ph.D., C.N.S., explains, the eating plan that best meets the needs of runners at all levels is based on a 50 percent carb, 25 percent protein, 25 percent fat ratio. Here Dr. Fernstrom details a realistic program, individualized for each person's activity level, that will enable runners to maximize their performance while maintaining long-term success at weight control.

In Runner's World The Runner's Diet, the reader will discover:

o Why the 50-25-25 ratio works best for runners—and even walkers

o How to match your eating pattern to your running style

o How to make use of a daily food and activity log

With the imprimatur of Runner's World, the leading authority in the running field, this is the first book to recognize that runners cannot depend solely on physical activity to control their weight—and to outline a lifetime weight-loss plan that is best for their special needs.

    How to lose weight book

    This is a book about how to lose weight by running. It is not a book about what a runner should eat for better performance. I think that the title is very misleading. Furthermore, I think that it ignores important facts in order to make it simple. The author says several times that a mile ALWAYS burns 100 calories no matter how fast you go. It is true that speed has little impact on the number of calories burned. BUT, a runner's weight and the type of terrain (hilly,flat,etc) covered have a big impact on calories burned. A 220 lb person doesn't burn the same number of calories as a 100 lb person!!!

    If you understand that this is a how to lose weight dieting book, then maybe you should buy it (but I don't recommend it). But if you are currently a runner and want to know what to eat for performance, then this is definitely not the book for you.

    Focuses on an unhealthy diet

    I am a marathoner and running my first 50K in a few weeks. I was looking for a book to help me shed some weight without giving up my training focus. This book is for runners who can run on minimal calories. Appendix 7 provides a basic plan of only 1,200 calories. And I was EXTREMELY disappointed that this book promotes the use of sugar substitutes and these 100 calories snack items. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    Do Not Buy!!

    This book DOES NOT support a healthy lifestyle! The author claims that 'diet' soda is a free food and is ok to consume, but that protein supplements are not beneficial?! Seems like the author is someone that is the typical overweight american that does not take true health seriously. This book is a 'spit' in the face to most athletes and especially elites!

    - from a concerned, healthy, Registered Nurse and serious runner of 15 years.
