A unique eating plan for both novice and experienced runners–to help you achieve optimum performance and keep those unwanted pounds off.
If you are a serious runner, or are thinking about starting a running or run/walk program to keep fit and help you lose weight, forget about the traditional food pyramid–or today’s low-carb diets. As noted dietitian Madelyn H. Fernstrom, Ph.D., C.N.S., explains, the eating plan that best meets the needs of runners at all levels is based on a 50 percent carb, 25 percent protein, 25 percent fat ratio. Here Dr. Fernstrom details a realistic program, individualized for each person’s activity level, that will enable runners to maximize their performance while maintaining long-term success at weight control.
In Runner’s World The Runner’s Diet, the reader will discover:
o Why the 50-25-25 ratio works best for runners–and even walkers
o How to match your eating pattern to your running style
o How to make use of a daily food and activity log
With the imprimatur of Runner’s World, the leading authority in the running field, Runner’s World Runner’s Diet by Madelyn H. Fernstrom with Ted Spiker is the first book to recognize that runners cannot depend solely on physical activity to control their weight–and to outline a lifetime weight-loss plan that is best for their special needs.

This book really helped me and put my diet in perspective. I lost a lot of weight while training and running. I realized I didn’t have eat as much as I eating to run a marathon. I couldn’t figure out how I was gaining weight and not losing until I read this book.
I recommend this book to anyone that is a walker or a runner or if you are thinking about beginning to be one. There is a lot of reputable information. With so many myths and advice out there it was nice to find something with real research proven to work. I am a runner and have struggled with weight even with a regimen of running. I found out why in the first few pages and have began to lose those stubborn pounds. This will help simplify your journey for weight loss, management and life long health! To the author Madelyn Fernstrom ( PHD, CNS ) Thank You!
The book is an easy read and has a lot of valuable information for those just starting out as runners, those maintaining or those revisiting running after weeks, months or years off.
