The miles you log are great for keeping you fit, healthy, and happy, and they help you to maintain your weight. But weight loss is a different story. Because you run, you may think you can eat whatever you want and still drop pounds. Unfortunately, that's not true. Running is only half the equation. You have to look hard at what and how you eat, too. Conventional dieting wisdom tends to leave runners hungry, tired, and overweight.

Let Runner's World Essential Guides: Weight Loss lead you through the minefield of dieting by showing you everything you need to know to shed pounds without losing steam on the run. The editors of Runner's World, the foremost authorities on running on the planet, have collected the best information about weight loss on the run, answering questions such as:

  • What are the 8 Golden Rules of Weight Loss? 
  • What should you eat to boost your metabolism? 
  • What are the best foods to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner to optimize weight loss? 
  • Weight-loss myths are debunked


And you'll get simple ideas for pre- and post-workout snacks as well as delicious, ridiculously easy-to-make recipes like a healthy hamburger and Angel Cake so that you'll have the fuel you need to run and the knowledge you need to shed pounds and keep them off once and for all!

It was okay, most of the same information I read was in the Runner's World complete guide to women's running. If I had to read one book, I would read the complete guide rather than this one. Read full review
