When to eat

I've started running and my question is....

When should I eat, before or after running?

When you are hungry.

If you are trying to lose weight the prevailing thought is to not eat before running and running in the morning.

If you had to choose between before and after I'd choose after and stock up on some carbs and protein.

Ok cool, I'm only trying to lose like 10-15 pounds. I'm at about 168 and would like to be 150ish.

I'm running and doing free weights.

Any other suggestions?

This is a n=1 study (meaning its all about me)

When I'm trying to lose weight I run 6x a week. When I'm "normal" I run 4-5 times a week. Now, I also do weights, I bike, I swim as well.

But for some reason the weight seems to disappear alot faster when I up the run to 6 times a week as the detriment to biking and swimming.

Keep the protein and carbs up and the fats down. Eat balanced with some carbs, protein and fat in every meal.

Just by the fact you started running... if you don't change your diet any you will lose weight if you maintaing your weight before. If you were gaining weight before you started running you may want to cut back on the calories a bit.

If you run 6 times a week for 30 minutes at a 9 or so minute per mile pace you'll burn up 1800 calories per week just running. Add in probably another 900 calories a week in weight lifting (3x a week) and you created 2700 calories worth of new activity.

Cut back 500 calories a week in your diet for 3500 calories and you created about a 1 3/4 pound weight loss per week. 6 weeks and you lose 10 pounds.
