Q HOW DO I IN­CREASE MY FOOD IN­TAKE WITH­OUT PUTTING ON WEIGHT? Kelly Bur­ton, Manch­ester

Trail Running (UK) - - Training -

“Food tim­ing and the cor­rect food se­lec­tion is key,” says A Ge­or­gia. “Try to eat a meal around two to three hours be­fore a train­ing ses­sion and within an hour of fin­ish­ing. This will en­sure the food eaten is used to fuel your ses­sion, and af­ter­wards to help max­imise re­cov­ery and re­plen­ish stores be­fore the next bout of ex­er­cise. If you strug­gle to eat post-ex­er­cise, try mak­ing a shake to en­sure you re­fuel ad­e­quately.” Per­haps the best ad­vice is to not base your diet on any­one else’s. “It is vi­tal to note that there is no one-size-fits-all an­swer,” says Ge­or­gia. “Track your progress to find out what works and does not work for you.”
