Serious runners, both professionals and non professionals, take good care of their health and eat better quality food. So what exactly are considered “good” food? Well, as we have been taught for as early as preschool, the good food are those that are rich in vitamins and minerals such as fruits and vegetables. Meat is also part of the good food pyramid along with fruits and vegetables, however, to a moderate amount. Processed food or junk food is frowned upon by weight watchers and nutritionists alike.
If you are really serious in doing a lifestyle change when it comes to eating, it is best to consult a nutritionist who can setup a diet custom fitted to you, who will give careful consideration to your lifestyle, body type and nutritional needs. What works for one person does not necessarily work for the other. We are all unique individuals. Our bodies might have different nutritional deprivation and demands.
