What are my diet options?
Experts recommend you eat 5 to 6 small, well balanced meals, each day.
Carbohydrates: If you are on a low-carb diet, discontinue it at once. Carbohydrates provide glycogen, which your body needs to burn in order to produce energy for the race. So your diet needs to be rich in carbs. Foods for marathon training include: potatoes, yams, beans, macaroni, spaghetti, brown rice among many others.
Proteins: Indian foods high in protein include: chickpeas, lentils, nuts and paneer. They help repair & restore muscle tissue, and are also important as a source of energy.
Fats: Stick to foods low in saturated fats and cholesterol. Foods such as nuts, oil and cold-water fish provide essential fats called omega-3, can help prevent certain diseases.
Calcium: It prevents osteoporosis and stress fractures for runners. Good sources: low-fat dairy products, calcium-fortified juices, leafy vegetables, beans, and eggs. You consumption should be 1,000 to 1,300 mg of calcium per day. Iron delivers oxygen to your cells. Men should aim for 8 mg of iron a day and its 18 mg for women. Sources: lean meat, green leafy vegetables, nuts, shrimp, and scallops.
