NUTRI­TION

Runner's World South Africa - - GEAR EDITOR’S TOP PICKS - – nutri­tion­ist Kim Lar­son (RW Jan­uary 2018)

“Ever won­dered why crash di­ets don’t work? Part of the prob­lem is that they’re tough to main­tain; se­vere de­pri­va­tion tends to lead to binge­ing. But also, switch­ing to an ul­tra-low-kilo­joule diet ac­tu­ally slows down your me­tab­o­lism by up to 50 per cent, lay­ing the ground­work for weight gain later on.”
