Need some inspiration. Since January I have lost 5 stones working out on a treadmill and then a cross-trainer, most days doing about 30 minutes. After a little chat with friends and my sister have decided to do the GNR next September and have started with the C25K. Although I had to push myself onto W3r1. I have put on weight last week and this. I am eating the same as I was before I started this program only extra thing I am having is once I have finished my run I am having a glass of water and a lime ice-cube. At first I put it down to water retention but still putting on, since started I have put on half a stone.
Is it a case I need to change my diet, is my body keeping hold of the food I am eating to count balance the effects of running. My normal diet is as follows:-
Protein Yogurt and blackberries - Breakfast
2 Slices of white toast (plain) - Lunch
Salad with a selection of either cheese, Chicken or vegetables - Tea
With only water during the day and 1 pint of lime and soda after run with tea.
