Im currently 9st 10lbs, and i would like to get down to 9st. My body fat is around 32% which i know isnt good! I have been running hard (about 4 miles most days) for a few weeks now and have actually put weight on, I know that I have probably been putting muscle on and I know muscle weighs more than fat but its a little disheartening! Has ANY professional runner or personal trainer got any tips for me like what to eat etc? Im also loosing almost all my energy about 2 miles into my run so any advise on that would also help!! My daily diet is usually something like this…
Breakfast- Wholemeal toast with Natural peanut butter (only if after morning run) or bran flakes with blueberries & skimmed milk or porridge with flaxseed.
Mid morning- Banana or Apple
Lunch – Tuna Salad & a yoghurt or if no bread in morning i will have a sandwich to fuel my run in evening.
mid afternoon – protein shake if running in evening or fruit.
Dinner – Chicken Breast or Fish Jacket Potato salad or veg followed by another yoghurt.
I dont really snack on cakes/chocolate or crisps as i know they wont help but i just need advise as to whether im doing this right. I know the toning up will come if i continue but i dont want to stall that happening by not doing something right.v
