I know many people start running to lose some weight and become healthier.
Running is great to get you out of the house and keep you active.
However, activity is just a small part of the weight loss game.
“You can’t outrun a poor diet”
Nutrition is a HUGE portion and from experience, after working with many runners it’s the part they really struggle with.
Sadly when marathon training, you really can’t get away with eating whatever you like..! Not if your goal is to lose weight.
There is so much information out there, how do you know what is correct and what will work for you?
Should you go High Fat? Maybe Low Carb? Should you count your macronutrients? Maybe even just make sure everything you eat is “natural”.
Sure, all of these may well work, and you might have tried them in the past, had some great results, but then circled back to where you started out.
I know, because I’ve seen and experienced it.
What if I told you there was a way to lose weight slowly over time that wasn’t super restrictive and was sustainable long term?
You’d probably laugh and say ‘yeah right’.
But let me tell you about a client of mine – I’ll call her Alice, but that’s not her real name.
Alice came to me because her daughter was getting married, it was a key moment in her daughter’s life.
She wanted to look her best on the wedding day and ooze confidence for those all important photos.
She wanted her daughter to be proud of her.
And secretly, she wanted everyone to turn to her and say how amazing she looked having lost all that weight.
I spoke to Alice at length about her goals and her background and I told her that I wouldn’t be putting her on a restrictive diet but introducing healthy habits every 2 weeks to help her towards her weight loss goal.
Alice was a little sceptical at first as what I was asking her to do seemed very easy… too easy, and not diet like at all.
Every 2 weeks we’d have our check in and I’d review her progress, ask her how she had found the previous 2 weeks and set the next habit.
Each time we had our check in there was something positive to talk about.
She was steadily losing weight.
Her body was changing and body fat was dropping.
The clothes she wore were becoming looser.
She was much happier in herself, feeling more positive and every time she heard the words “have you lost some weight”… well these were the best moments.
Those 5 simple words made her feel on top of the world.
They were asking her what diet she was on and she’d say “I’m not on a diet, I’m introducing healthy habits, it’s really easy and I’m never hungry!”
After 12 weeks Alice had lost just over a stone and a was down a dress size too.
She also lost this weight without exercising too!
Alice wasn’t a runner when she first started with me, but she is now gaining the confidence to be one – so hopefully in the near future you’ll see her out running.
She did all of this with no exercise, so just imagine what you can achieve with running and strength training included too.
The Lean Runner 90 Programme has done away with restrictive diets that are boring and don’t get you results long term.
The programme focuses on forming healthy habits slowly over time that will get you long lasting results.
The reason we use habit forming to help people achieve their weight loss goals is because when you focus on one habit at a time you have between 50 – 80% chance of making the new habit stick, compared to focusing on multiple habits at once where the figure drops to 5 -35%.
The Lean Runner 90 Programme has been created for runners that want to lose weight, improve their running and be the healthiest and happiest they have been in years.
The programme includes:
– Healthy habits (that’ll stick with you for life and prevent yo yo dieting)
– Accountability (because we all need a bit of support)
– Bi-weekly group calls so we can catch up, keep everyone accountable and on track with their progress
– Recorded group calls so you’ll have access to the information whenever you like to recap on what’s been covered in previous weeks
– Dedicated facebook group to help support and motivate everyone
– Plus a weight loss plan (including strength and running) all over 12 weeks designed specifically to aid runners wanting to get lean.
Due to the high educational content and time dedicated to each participant, there will only be 8 places available on the programme.
Each week is focused on implementing brand new and effective habits in an online group setting, where you’ll gain a LOT of focus from the RunCamp Team.
If you want to:
– Learn out all about protein, carbohydrates and fats – why we need them, how much we need and when is best to eat them
– Lose weight through our habit based training programme
– Improve running speed aided by our running training programme
– Boost confidence and feel better about yourself
– Reduce the amount of guess work over what you “can” or “can’t” eat
