Weight loss advice for marathon runner


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I apologies in advance, I saw a similar post to this from 2013, but with no response, so I thought I'd take a chance and post this anyway.


I've been vegetarian for a few years and went whole food plant based over a year. I've had weight loss success while strength training but zero weight loss success while long distance running/marathons training. In the last couple of years, my focus has been less on strength and more time spent running, and haven't lost a lbs since. I'm getting ready to kick up my training in high gear again for a fall Marathon, but have ambitious time goals and think loosing 10-15lbs for the race could help.


Does anyone have advice on how to safely loose weight while marathon training? I just can't seem to find information on helpful ways to do this and I don't want to do anything that will harm my performance.
