Hi there! Wow I can’t believe I found this—complements of a great friend and inspiration from RunnersWorld online forums.
I am a passionate runner, but due to health issues that have built up over the past couple years, have just recently found I need to eat low carb and all natural. As of right now the only carbs I can get are those in fresh vegetables [maximal], fruit [whole only], and beans in limited portions.
While I am willing to make these changes for the healing I so desperately need, I hate feeling like I have to give up my athlete lifestyle and eating for that. I feel like an invalid instead of an athlete.
Plus, I am just getting into peak training for my fall marathon! How the heck am I supposed to maximize what I get out of my training without bread and cereal—or even rice and whole wheat for a while here?!
Hence, it is so great to see that this kind of eating CAN be that of an athlete…even a marathoner!
I hope I can learn from you guys and find my own success—for life, for my running dreams.
