Run Training Plan -
Friday Footie - Back after very long break
Recently I have watched a few documentaries regarding food in todays diet of the average Joe Bloggs. I think its fair to say that after watching Super Size Me, most of us realise that eating burgers non stop is a bad idea.
In other documentaries on even the likes of the BBC and channel four sometimes you learn more detail about our relationship with the likes of Salt, Sugar, Fat, Caffeine etc. If your interested in finding out more, do a search in YouTube for 'the truth about food' or the excellent 'the people who made us fat'. Nowadays, I know a wee bit more about emotional eating and strange as it sounds I stay well clear of 'lighter/low fat' foods.
I found a decent guy on Facebook who does a lot of running but drinks regularly juices instead of typical meals at times. http://www.runningonjuice.com/ He advised me to add protein powder and add avocado (for more fat) to my juices to bulk them up a bit. I even did a long run recently where pre run I had sweet potato's; and dates and nuts (instead of gels) for during the run. Healthier alternatives are possible.
Most of the time I still do porridge toast bananas etc with gels during long runs but I think its good to know you can have the healthier option once in a while too.
