Got a news letter from Runners World that some may find useful. It's basic information relating to running and weight gain.. www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-242
This was always an issue for me. I believe that as I was building my mileage, my body was struggling to keep up. A 10 mile run or longer would trigger an avalanche of cravings and post run hunger.
Now that I have been at it for a while, I can tell that adaptations have been made and I don't go crazy anymore with hunger. I've become more efficient with my energy usage.
I put this out there for those that may be wondering why the pounds aren't falling off as they are building mileage and dealing with the post run eating attacks. I think that as you become more efficient and your body adapts, it gets far easier to manage...
Just a thought.
Happy Running and keep at it.
