Help me out ppl. Its hard to get away from old eating habits. I just read a book called "Born to Run". Talks about the Taramuhara ppl. They're a tribe of runners in Mexico located in cliffs north of Guatemala. They eat mainly beans and corn, but the thing is they drink like freakin sailors!!!

I have been running at night. Gonna try and increase the distance gradually. I'm running for good health, im starting to enjoy it, and training for Officer School for the Military.

when i started running for good health, this is what i did i took someone to encourage me to continue
for the first set of laps we ran 4 laps had a 1 lap break then 3,2, then 1 around every week i increased my running and know i can Jog 12 laps non stop then i am done
*each lap is 400 meters (i have no idea in miles)

thats how i did it
and by time if i dont run usually i would be very angry and i cant focus

but since you are in the military you probably used to run for miles and miles

Are you trying to lose weight buddy?

If so, you should eat 6 very small meals each day like this:

Breakfast (8.00am) - Bowl of Cereals with Milk, 1 no fat Yogurt, 1 Fruit, 70g of Protein Whey

Pre-Lunch (11.00am) - 70g of Turkey or Chicken breast, 50g almonds, Glass of Orange Juice

Lunch (2.00pm) - 70g Pasta or Pizza or Rice or any kind of carbs basically, shitload of Vegetables, a small (60g / 70g) Tuna steak and 1 fruit

Snack (5.00pm) - 70g of Protein whey or Protein Bar and 1 Banana

Dinner (8.00pm) - 100g of White meat or Any kind of Fish, 40g rice, shitload of vegetables again and 1 fruit


The solution is in giving your body a lot of Proteins which will help you with fat burning and to not "fill" you up with just 2 or 3 meals where you eat like a beast cos you are hungry of course.

You should drink about 5 to 6 liters of water a day. This is the hard part for most people, but fundamental. You need to make your body get rid of all the sh!t inside.


Moreover, for your body it isn't really good to just run. You should combine it with some weighting room sessions as well as some Plyometrics, where you jump around like a mad man.

You can run everyday, but run a little but less after you do weighting room sessions.

If you are really serious about this you should check P90X program.
It doesn't matter in what kind of condition you are, in 90 days with 1 hour a day for each day you'll be in the best shape of your life. Guaranteed.

I have been boxing for the last 4 years, I know about training hard :wink:

Hope this helped!

Not necessarily wanna "lose" weight. I just kinda got into running recently, and wanna try to eat right. P90X, i dont know about all that. Im in the Air Force and i know ppl that love it talk about it all the time. but i think i'll just run. When i start running seriously, within a yr of running i wanna try to do a marathon.

Yes, ok, I know what you mean.
However to accomplish better results, you would need to combine some other work with running: maybe swimming, jumping exercises and weighting room sessions. That is because you don't want your body and you blood pressure to get accustomed to running or you will never be able to do more each time.

That diet I told you will help you drop a few extra pounds (if you have any that is) but it is very healthy as well. Eat lots of proteins and don't touch the carbs at night unless you had a massive workout in the afternoon and need to recovery in which case you can have some.

And when you will run the marathon you will kick ass!!!
