The Nutrition for Runners Program is Here!

Friends – I have some VERY exciting news for you today. The Nutrition for Runners program is officially finished and ready for you!

My co-author, running coach Jason Fitzgerald, and I have spent nearly a year researching, writing, and tweaking this program. What originally began as just a simple e-book turned into much more than that, and I’m so proud of what we have turned it into.

Nutrition for Runners is a comprehensive nutrition and training program for runners. In addition to meal guides, expert interviews, and a full recipe cookbook, it also includes a library of training plans designed for either performance or weight loss. It’s truly a one stop shop for those of you looking to take your running performance to the next level.

The program is broken up into different tiers, the specific details (and pricing) of which you can read more about on the Nutrition for Runners page. Here’s what you will find included in the full program:

  • A full overview book, which includes our “5 Principles of Nutrition for Runners
  • Fueling strategies for every scenario: 5k, 10k, half marathon & marathon – plus workout fueling for morning, afternoon & evening runners
  • The complete “Ask the Dietitian” series, showing you how to reduce sugar cravings, which supplements are worth it, and more
  • Meal Guide & Runner’s Cookbook with example meal guides based on the time of day you run (!) and recipes sorted into categories for before, during, and after runs
  • Real food recipes for mid-run fuel, if you’re not a gel/gummy fan

You guys know that my blog (and my AnneTheRD private practice) is all about intuitive eating and simple, approachable recipes that don’t have you in the kitchen for hours. I’m proud to say that that is what you will find in the Nutrition for Runners program, too! The only time we recommend calorie counting is when you are initially determining how much fuel to take in during runs. (Intuitive eating doesn’t work so well when you’re 15 miles deep, you know?) But in the rest of the program you will find how to fuel right without calorie counting or stressing yourself out about every morsel of food you put into your body. We want you to remember that eating doesn’t have to be that hard – and by following our nutrition principles, you can fuel right without worrying about all those numbers.

Here’s some feedback we’ve been getting already about the program, from our email list subscribers (who received early access to it):

“I love the simplicity of your approach to nutrition in this program, without having to track servings of every food group. It’s so much more sustainable. I can naturally adjust portions based on training volume, and follow the same patterns while traveling too.” – Nicole

“I looked through the recipes and snack ideas and I LOVE them! You weren’t lying when you said they are quick and easy and have ingredients that you can actually find in your local supermarket! I have spent so much money on healthy recipe books to find that the ingredients are all weird and you have to go hunting for them at specialty stores. I don’t have time for all that.” – Johna

If you’re training for a race, looking to take your running to the next level, or simply want to make sure you’re fueling right for your runs, I hope you will take a look at the program.

If you’re interested, here are the full program details. You’ll want to check it out soon, because there’s a limited availability personal support tier (that includes check in calls with both me and Jason) that we’re only offering to the first 20 people. Don’t miss out!

Happy running and eating, everyone!

    Congratulations on getting this out there!! I know how hard you worked and you must be SO thrilled to have the finished product ready. Go celebrate your hard work, you deserve it!!

    Whoa. I was excited for this to be released but $79 for a zip file is pretty wild to me.
    Also, not to be a Debbie Downer but more of an educator that can’t turn it off, but your descriptions clearly say that you race training and weight loss don’t mesh yet your subtitle says “lose weight effortlessly”. People dole out big bucks for weight loss guides. Hope you didn’t add that to the title to collect a few pay checks.

    • 27

      Not Debbie Downer at all! I appreciate your concerns. Weight loss and intense race training don’t mesh, you are correct, and we talk about that extensively in the program. That said, we also talk about weight loss and how to work it in appropriately while also running (but not seriously training – that’s the difference – basically, you need to choose one goal – either a race PR/running goal or weight loss – it’s not wise to try to do both at the same time). There are also a number of weight loss specific running plans in the program, that will help to kick start weight loss but in a safe way. I hope that helps clear up the confusion! It can definitely be complicated. :)

    Congratulations, Anne. Just bought my copy — and printing it now!

    Hi Anne,
    I eat mostly vegetarian food and seafood a couple of times a week. Is your book (specifically the recipes and the meal guides) appropriate for vegetarians?

    • 32

      Yes, there are a large quantity of vegetarian and vegan recipes, and many of the others are easily customized to be vegetarian. I hope you like the program!

  3. […] While coffee specifically has not been studied in athletic performance, caffeine has been well researched and shown to be an acceptable and effective ergogenic aid. The recommended amount of caffeine to enhance performance is equivalent to about 1 large mug for females and up to 3 large mugs for men. (Please work with a sports dietitian to determine if you should take in caffeine/the optimal amount of caffeine to consume for sports performance. This is also something Anne and Jason discuss at length in their Nutrition for Runners program.) […]
