WHAT’S THE BEST WAY Q TO LOSE WEIGHT BY RUN­NING?

Trail Running (UK) - - TRAINING Q&A - Dar­ren Ja­cobs, via email

AGen­er­ally, the more time on your feet or more miles you do, the more you will lose – al­though there is a ‘fat­burn­ing zone’, in which you will lose weight more ef­fi­ciently. But it’s not just about run­ning.

“This is a ques­tion of nutri­tion. It’s about how you fuel your runs and how healthy and bal­anced your diet is,” says Rob­bie Britton. “Con­sis­tent, var­ied train­ing, along­side a healthy and bal­anced diet, will bring the changes you want. But, lighter does not al­ways mean faster and it is im­por­tant to look at other mea­sures of health, such as bone health and hor­monal changes, that can oc­cur through too much weight loss. It’s best to talk to a reg­is­tered sports di­eti­cian for ad­vice and be pa­tient.”
