Eat out and eat more

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Now, we’re not sug­gest­ing that food should just be con­sid­ered as fuel for train­ing – we like a Fri­day-night trip to the pizza place or a Sun­day pub roast as much as the next per­son. But watch­ing your por­tion sizes at so­cial events is a wise idea, ac­cord­ing to Cor­nell Univer­sity Food & Brand Lab sci­en­tists. Their study found that men were far more likely to overeat at so­cial gath­er­ings, which could neg­a­tively im­pact train­ing ef­fi­fi­ciency. Iron­i­cally, eat­ing more when out with the lads is per­ceived as a sign of viril­ity and strength.
