Product Description

Product Description

The miles you log are great for keeping you fit, healthy, and happy, and they help you to maintain your weight. But weight loss is a different story. Because you run, you may think you can eat whatever you want and still drop pounds. Unfortunately, that's not true. Running is only half the equation. You have to look hard at what and how you eat, too. Conventional dieting wisdom tends to leave runners hungry, tired, and overweight.

Let Runner's World Essential Guides: Weight Loss lead you through the minefield of dieting by showing you everything you need to know to shed pounds without losing steam on the run. The editors of Runner's World, the foremost authorities on running on the planet, have collected the best information about weight loss on the run, answering questions such as:
  • What are the 8 Golden Rules of Weight Loss?
  • What should you eat to boost your metabolism?
  • What are the best foods to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner to optimize weight loss?
  • Weight-loss myths are debunked.

And you'll get simple ideas for pre- and post-workout snacks as well as delicious, ridiculously easy-to-make recipes like a healthy hamburger and Angel Cake so that you'll have the fuel you need to run and the knowledge you need to shed pounds and keep them off once and for all!

2.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Same Old 29 Nov 2011
By Teadye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Basically this "book" is an amalgam of magazine articles and reads like it. The author strings together a series of quotes from a disjointed bunch of experts and pretty much glosses over any serious treatment of the subject. I bought this book hoping to find some in-depth information on weight loss for RUNNERS. Not a re-hash of the same old stuff like: it's good to get off the couch, cut back on the funnel cakes and fries, whole foods are better than processed foods. Blah blah blah.

For example: The book gets off to a tantalizing start by implying that it will talk about why standard high protein/low carb diets are ineffective for people who are actively training for endurance running. But the subject never comes up again. Later a statement is made that running the same routine will eventually lead to burning less calories. Really? Never heard that one before! The claim is interesting, but again... never discussed or substantiated. Instead there is a quick swap to the old "you'll get bored and quit running" chestnut. Are you kidding me? Runner's World is currently printing articles admonishing us to take it a little easier and to spend some time with our families. Raise your hand if you think you'll quit anytime soon. In the same paragraph it states that people tend to do this because it's more comforting to stick with what you know... I'll agree there, but I need a little convincing to get to the point of believing that being in a "rut" (which is a matter of opinion) burns substantially less calories. Also the book digresses into off-topic subjects (such as how to up your PR by running hills) a lot, especially for a relatively short work.

If you are looking for a book that addresses the weight loss problems that people who already exercise and eat right face when they are training hard, it doesn't deliver that. Nothing new here. In fact, if you take any generic newbie running book and randomly throw in the words "weight-loss" and "fat-burning" every so often, you would have this book. The only positive thing about it is that it's really, really cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of a diet book then a running program 2 Mar 2013
By S. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was really looking forward to getting this book once I purchased my kindle. It came at a great low price and the book is an easy read. I was looking for more of a program on how to loose weight from running. The book focuses more on diet then its does running. Most if it was common sense. I'm not sure that I learned anything new but the positive side to the book is it's ability to motivate. Not because the author was motivational but because picking up this book when I'm at a low point frequently rekindled my desire to stay on track and get out there and run. I would definitely recommend this book to a beginner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short compilation of articles. Okay for the price. 22 Jun 2012

Not a lot of new information here if you read Runners Worl on a regular basis, this book is. Collection of articles. Lots of repetition. Fine for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 8 April 2013
By Nancy Waits - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't ran in about 6 years. Now, after having my first child, one of my main concerns is to be a happy and healthy mother. This book has great tips, is an easy read, and has helped encourage me to run again.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very good guide 1 Jun 2014
By Alisdair Rendell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Found this book to be a good guide to weight loss and running. Good information on planning your meals, a more sensible approach staying away from fad diets. I like the format and there's information about running schedules aimed at beginner runners. I would recommend this book to anyone planning on losing weight.
