Tuesday Tip: Taming that Runger 🏃🏻 Runger - the dreaded runners hunger - but it’s not limited to runners! Do you find yourself much hungrier on days you exercise? or after long runs / cycle rides? And do you struggle then to eat what you need without over eating or resorting to grabbing quick fixes (like chocolate and crisps)? You’re not alone! I’m ALWAYS hungry! lol! It’s natural to be hungrier on days when you workout more, but the key to managing it is ensuring you’re prepared on those days and are clever about the way you fuel yourself. 🍏
If you’re doing a big workout e.g. a long run, cycle ride, or several classes, then have a small snack before the session. You want to aim for around 100 - 150 kcals and go for something that has about 15g protein and 30 - 40g of carb. A good example is something like a banana or apple with 1/2 tbsp peanut butter. Then after your workout have another snack but go for something with 10 - 15g protein to 20 - 30g carbs. A good example is approx 85g yoghurt and a piece of fruit, or hummus with veggies. You don’t need to buy expensive pre/post workout shakes - stick to real food if you can!
Happy Tuesday 🤗
