I need a better plan

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I just can not see myself eating two breakfasts on run days. I am trying to lose not gain.

ie - i had 1.3oz cheerios with 1/2c almond milk before my run
post run i had 16oz gatorade, 1 poached egg on one slice of toast, and 1c of frozen grapes.

I have tried to do a morning run without eating...I will on Monday. I love my clif bars but that is about 280ish in calories and tastes great with coffee. I love big breakfasts.

anywho, I need your help and love to hear ideas.

    I do a banana before my walk and that stays with me but I don't run. You are probably burning way more calories than I am. I hope you find something that works for you!

    Don't run on an empty stomach, not good! I like AEGISHOT's idea.

    Maybe you could eat a piece of fruit first and then a big breakfast after your run/

    Why the gatorade? It has a lot of sugar and cals. The breakfast you ate should have been great at replenishing any nutrients you lost. You might try drinking a protein smoothie instead of gatorade if you want to drink a meal?

Sorry if this sounded snooty, I just woke up from a nap when I wrote it. Looked at it again and decided it might sound rude. I think it is really cool that you are running in the AM!

    Why don't you try some fruits before the run and then your big meal after the run.
