Perhaps you have a roommate who is a runner, perhaps you married one, perhaps you gave birth to one. In any case you now have a food shortage problem since your runner is "training" and running two or three times a day and babbling on and on about VOX2 or some other such nonsense. This has lead you to wonder: how do I feed a runner?
Well here are some tips.
1. Keep breakfast foods on hand. Encourage large breakfasts.
The trick is to keep the runner
from getting very hungry
. Honestly, that is impossible, but if fed a breakfast the runner will not come in, pass out on the couch
, then rise 2 hours later and consume all of your bread and peanut-butter. Breakfast is a good time to give the runner fatty foods
. No diet should be without fat, but runners won't want to eat it very often since it can make their sensitive
. Breakfast is the time for fats and starch: hashbrowns
with cream, and possibly a sausage on a biscuit. Fiber
is also a good idea, so consider chopping up green apples
and placing them in strategic tempting spots
about your home. Hide a bran muffin
in the runner's day bag for best effects.
. The eating problem
runners have is caused by a deep need for energy
. Fat breaks down too slowly and can cause nausea
...veggies are too low in calories
to be effective. This leaves starches
. The best starches are the most complex: wheat bread
, buckwheat noodles
. These contain starches coiled up like tense springs ready to release their energy for the runner.
3. Hide the Sugar
. The runner will want sugar
. The runner will eat donuts
with joy, then pass out on the couch
and wake up cranky and mean
. To avoid this problem hide the donuts from the runner
. You see, runners *think* they want sugar, but sugar is not filling and only gives the runner a quick energy fix
. If you can’t get your runner to eat the bran muffin
tempt the runner with some fruits
, which have sugar, but in a less refined form than cookies and such. After a bit of fruit try the bran muffin
again. Things will look up for you!
