Fast Fuel: Snacks
Need pre-run fuel, fast? These snacks are ready when you are
When your grumbling stomach threatens your next run, meet it in the middle and have a snack. "The right snack can prevent premature fatigue and keep blood-sugar levels steady," says sports dietitian Jan Dowell.
These options contain carbs for quick energy and a bit of protein to hold off hunger (it's best to avoid too much fat and fibre, which take longer to digest and can spell tummy trouble). Best of all, they take little or no prep, so you can grab a bite and go.
