after having done 3 half-marathons now and having gained a little weight during the training for each I think the only way you can lose weight and increase your performance is to eat low-carb/paleo/primal and train at lower intensity (about 75% of Maxiumum heart rate) to teach your body to fuel primarily with fat, not with carbs.
I can now run 10 miles without needing breakfast and without feeling starved after the run.
My macronutients are about 70% fat, 20-25% protein, 5-10 % fat, total calories between 2000-2500 calories. I avoid all grains, beans and sugar.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
