One of my favorite parts about being a Registered Dietitian is getting to know all of the other amazing RDs there are out there. Over the years, through school, my dietetic internship, blogging and work I’ve gotten to know some Registered Dietitians that are doing some pretty incredible things. I like nothing more than celebrating and sharing their accomplishments, especially when I think it could benefit you, my readers!
One of my very good RD friends is Anne from Fannetastic Food. She and I went through our internships at similar times and have both been involved in the blogging world for a while now. Plus she’s an entrepreneur as well so she’s been a great resource for me and it’s nice to have someone to chat with about the kind of “non-traditional” dietetics work we’re both doing.
For the past year, Anne has been working with Jason Fitzgerald from Strength Running to develop a Nutrition For Runners program.
As you guys know, since I’ve found Crossfit, running just isn’t my thing anymore. HOWEVER, I know that lots of you guys are runners! So I thought I’d share some info about the Nutrition for Runners program with you guys in case any of you think it’d be helpful to you and your training!
Nutrition for Runners is a comprehensive nutrition and training program for runners. In addition to meal guides, expert interviews, and a full recipe cookbook, it also includes a library of training plans designed for either performance or weight loss. It’s truly a one stop shop for those of you looking to take your running performance to the next level.
Here’s what you will find included in the full program:
- A full overview book, which includes our “5 Principles of Nutrition for Runners“
- Fueling strategies for every scenario: 5k, 10k, half marathon & marathon – plus workout fueling for morning, afternoon & evening runners
- The complete “Ask the Dietitian” series, showing you how to reduce sugar cravings, which supplements are worth it, and more
- Meal Guide & Runner’s Cookbook with example meal guides based on the time of day you run (!) and recipes sorted into categories for before, during, and after runs
- Real food recipes for mid-run fuel, if you’re not a gel/gummy fan
- 30 easy to prepare, quick recipes for runners – plus 49 more ideas for simple snacks and meals
- 5 expert interviews (over 5 hours of audio!) on food intolerances, mistakes to avoid, race-specific fueling, inflammation & more
- 15 Training Plans so you can get faster in the 5k, 10k, half marathon & marathon – plus 3 weight loss plans to help you shed pounds easily
- The “Dietitian Approved” Shopping List, showing you exactly what to buy (and why)
I had a chance to look through everything included in the program and you guys, it’s fantastic! Some things I like:
- It uses intuitive eating principles instead of calorie counting (except when fueling for a long run).
- It focuses on 5 solid nutrition principles that I agree with.
- The Q&A section covers a lot of questions that I get asked myself as an RD.
- There are some great meal planning tips and recipe ideas.
- They offer suggestions based on what time of day you train- another thing I get asked a lot.
- The expert interviews are jam-packed with info from some very well-respected names.
- There are tons of different training plans to choose from (15 of them!) – something for runners of every level.
While this is pricier than your average ebook, it’s so much more than just an ebook! It’s like having a running coach and dietitian along with you while you’re training! So I think it’s worth the money.
