I have posted this in another forum (Weight Loss NHS) sorry for whoever else is on both... I would like other expert advice from runners...
I have never monitored my weight before and after runs. I do know that you lose liquids and all the rest, but this morning before going out for my daily run I looked at the scale and measures and I was 91 kg. 103 cm waist. I went out for 8 miles run which is about 1 hour for me and once back (after shower and a few glasses of water - at least 4) I looked at the scale again and surprise.. 88 Kg. ??? So I took the measuring tape and looked at it with even more surprise... 99 cm ??? I know for a fact that everything will be back to normal tonight (I won't keep this drop).
I need about 1100/1200 calories for the run, so I cannot lose more than 2-4 hg. of fat. I know liquid is important but is it possible that I have lost all these liquids? could it be (combined with my history of running and not losing weight) a sign of high liquid retention or food intolerance? Does anything else come up to your mind???
Anyway, it could be that this change in eating habit could help me get rid of this
so let's see what happens in a few weeks/months
have a great day
