The No-Brainer Nutrition Guide for Every Runner

Welcome runners!

As a Registered Dietitian and marathon runner, I’m dedicated to using an evidence-based approach to sports nutrition.

What does that mean? Well, I’ll never recommend a crazy fad diet or supplement that hasn’t been proven by research. Instead, I try to give practical advice that is rooted in science.

That doesn’t mean it’s difficult to follow though! As a matter of fact, many many runners have benefitted from following my nutrition advice.

“The No-Brainer Nutrition Guide For Every Runner” delves into a variety of nutrition topics, such as:

  • How much should you eat and drink before, during and after a run?
  • Should you be using a sports supplement?
  • What should you eat if you run really early in the morning?
  • What’s the proper ratio of nutrients in a recovery meal?
  • What the heck are BCAA and should you be supplementing with them?
  • How can you follow a meatless diet and still fuel your running routine?
  • What are some natural alternatives to sports nutrition products?
  • How should your fueling change as you increase my mileage?
