I just started the g-fit "prime" bites and I love them for before a run. I love cottage cheese and a cold apple for after :)

Eggs are what work for me! :) Now that I'm adding miles I am eating chews. 126 calories over an hour (my body weight)

WONGERCHI helped me and basically as I get used to running longer I will be able to eat more. When I started I couldn't eat anything before 6 miles or..... Now it's 17 miles. I can eat anything before a 6 miler. So over time eventually I will be able to run 50 miles. But he advised eating chews or something like that from the start of my long run. Here is one of the links:

In this thread he is the 2nd poster and he explains it very well:

Again if your running to loose remember that the average mile only burns 100 calories so you don't want to eat what you run off. However 6 miles burns an average 600 miles so 6 miles over an hour plus 126 calories intake still = 475 deficit. (it's just an average 100 calories, so everyone should be different)

Hope this helps, and makes sense! Lol I'm not very good at explaining things. :)

I have been experimenting with this for some time now. I posted a link here from Runner's World about pre and post run fueling and followed the advice of the lady in the video and ate graham crackers and milk pre-run..but it didn't work for me. Truthfully there are days I go out on an empty stomach and run further than normal. Most days I am learning that I need a protein base and I usually fry and egg in Pam..and have some toast, an hour before I go out. At the very least fruit which helps. I hate having to burp while I'm running and if I eat certain things I do.

I like my eggs and v-8 in the morning! I have heard over and over carbs before a run. (I just don't listen)

Lately I've been hearing a lot about fueling your run with oatmeal. It was a whole grain or natural oatmeal. I thought all oatmeal was whole grain? I also have heard that many people like yogurt and fruit before a run.

Me - I love my eggs. I think coffee and v-8 cut down on muscle fatigue and soreness after a run. I'll have that and 16-24 oz of water in the hours following a run. I'm sure it's all mental, I just love my eggs, v-8 and coffee! :)

I try to run in the mornings and will eat a piece of fruit-apple or banana-before I run. Then I eat a bowl of raisin bran with soy milk as my breakfast...

If it's the afternoon I like eating a pb and banana sandwich (half) after but I never eat anything before.

What are yall eating? Trying to get a little variety....
