Too many runners have been running too long with too few good results.
Many struggle weight gain, even as they log the miles. When I started working with Michelle, she was the classic example of someone who ran to eat. She thought if she worked hard enough she would reach her running and weight goals. When she did not see the desired results, she ate less and ran more.
Michelle’s frustration is grew. Things got worse. She ate even less and ran even more. And she was still gaining weight. Running had stopped being enjoyable. It was no longer a hobby or sport. It was something to do to burn calories to lose weight. And it wasn’t working.
But how is it possible that Michelle continued to run more, eat less, and still gain weight?
Michelle’s case is not unique. After I spent time with Michelle and created a custom nutrition plan, she started eating foods that she enjoys again. She also no longer worries about weight gain. She has an understanding of how the body works and how her diet affects her day to day.
