Good Afternoon Ladies!!!
I am posting this question on two team that I am on….Runner’s Café and Eating Clean because I want get opinions from both points of view!!!
I have recently started running and noticed my weight has been fluctuating a little…nothing I am too worried about but I am wondering if I am eating the right things at the right times to maximize my workouts and increase my training outcome!!!
I basically eat 6 times a day but am only really concerned with the first 4 that surround my workout…
Breakfast #1 7:30–Smoothie with Whey protein, almond milk with fruit on gym day (running and ST) and no fruit on non gym day (stationary bike or yoga)
Breakfast #2-10:00 ½ Whole wheat pita with 2-3 oz turkey or eggs with low fat cheese OR ½ cup cottage cheese with mixed fruit and high fiber cereal
Lunch- 1:00 5-6 oz Lean protein and lots of mixed veggies
Mid-afternoon snack 3:30- whichever snack I didn’t have earlier
What do you eat before and after you run/workout??? Does it matter or would it make a difference which snack I eat when…I guess I’m wondering if my carb distribution is beneficial to my workouts???
Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated!!!
