I appreciate the sensible nutritional information that is posted on this forum. I read the Runner's World Forum as well, and the nutrition info. posted there makes me want to tear out what's left of my hair. Some of it is very much on target, but there is a fairly widespread belief that running gives people a blank check to eat whatever they want and stay healthy and fit. And then many of the runners complain because they still have love handles and jiggly stomachs. LOL. I feel like a heretic when I post that I don't buy into the idea that runners need to chow down on tons of simple carbs - processed cereals, pasta, white rice, bagels, etc.
