I’m a woman. I run. So it is only natural when @WomensRunning contacts me for an interview on sports nutrition that I’m going to say YES!
The article was on healthy lunches. In usual fashion, my spin focuses on meeting the body’s needs for nutrition and physical performance. When I get a chance to reach lots of people, I smash diet myths as much as I can. For this article, I picked the “low carb” myth – no way, Jackson! Runners need carbs. I emphasized whole grain carbs that are minimally processed and give a 1-2 punch of nutrients along with the quick energy we need right about lunch time. Manage your energy levels. Eat real food, enough so you don’t starve, and don’t fear the carbohydrate.
Check out my smattering of tips in the online article. I managed to get in messages about mindful eating (take a lunch break) and hydration. Better yet, go buy your own copy of the mag — lots of good stuff in this issue you can’t get online!
