PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR EXERCISE DIET
It is quite common for regular running to "naturally" alter certain eating habits. Moderate effort for longer than 40 minutes generally increases calorie combustion and can, over time, lead to significant weight loss. The only reliable way to lose weight is obviously to burn more calories than you take in (with or without some sports activity).
Keep in mind:
- It is better not to go on a low-sugar diet if you're running on a regular basis.~
- It is important to stay nourished and hydrated when jogging for more than 60 minutes and to quickly replenish stores of glycogen (the exercise fuel stored in muscles and the liver) after training. Energy bars or drinks are good but bananas, cereals or brown bread are also recommended.
- It is wise to avoid weighing yourself too often (once a week, early in the morning after urination is sufficient). Ensure that the weight loss linked to running is not too drastic.
