Making Nutrition Simple: Interview with Nancy Clark
Running can be complicated enough when you consider the myriad of factors that go into the perfect training schedule. However, when you add in the difficulty of designing the perfect nutrition plan to compliment your training, things really get confusing.
Luckily, world-renowned running nutritionist Nancy Clark is on our podcast today to show you step-by-step how you can simplify your nutrition for optimal training and racing.
Nancy Clark is one of the most respected and influential sports nutritionist in the world. Perhaps she is most well known for her best selling sports nutrition book, Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition Guidebook. However, she’s also penned the Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions and Food Guide for New Runners: Getting It Right From the Start.
On our show, Nancy is going to help you simplify your nutrition and help answer some tricky questions when it comes to sustainable weight loss and marathon racing. Specifically, we cover:
- How to manage weight loss by following the simple practice of fueling by day, dieting by night.
- How to establish “food buckets” to make meal decisions easy and to help you structure a nutrition plan that works for you.
- We also cover nutrition during the marathon, including how many calories an hour to take in and different food choices to fuel your race.
