Put those wicked ways behind you with these kick-it tricks
A snack such as a banana will see you right before a lunchtime run, but even the busiest runners shouldn't neglect post-run fuelling. Research suggests you eat 1.5g of carbs per kilogram of body weight within 30 minutes of exercise to restore glycogen reserves and prevent low blood sugar levels.Break it: Mixing protein with carbs boosts muscle protein synthesis. "Go for ham salad sandwiches without mayo and an isotonic sports drink for extra carbs and electrolytes," says Mike Gleeson, professor of exercise biochemistry at Loughborough University.

This is an interesting article but makes me realise how little I understand about what I stick in my mouth and its effects on my body.
^^^^ are you serious?
dont skip breakfast, dont eat too much sugar and avoid booze.
ground breaking stuff from runnersworld
One coffee a day?? I have mine black no sugar. I never knew there were enough calories in my coffee for me to gain weight full stop let alone in a year
...so I can now blame my weight gain not on eating too much but infact on black coloured water....
The advice in this article seems a little pointless as there are far better aspects of nutrition that could have been covered here for athletes.
I also find it quite irritating that this article is giving dietary advice yet has not sought the opinion of a Dietitian or a Sports Dietitian. These health professionals are the ones who have spent many years in training on the subject and therefore would be best informed to give such advice.
Instead you take the opinions of a nutritionist, who by the way does not need any type of formal training and can call themselves such after reading an article from the internet, as well as some science professor. Next time it would be better if you consulted someone more qualified, so that they could give advice that was actually useful.
This report = no more fun in my life!
Whatever happened to work hard, play hard?!
