Whether you like it or not, regular running does not mean you should let your nutrition suffer. In fact, the opposite is true.
And if you’re looking to lose weight, coupling consistent running with a good diet can increase your chances of reaching your goal weight.
In this episode I talk with Jason Fitzgerald from Strength Running.
Jason is a running coach, 2:39 marathoner and a wealth of practical knowledge when it comes to all things running.
If you want to become the best runner you can be, your diet can not be ignored. Listen to this podcast episode and be sure to check out Jason’s Nutrition for Runners program.
