Here is another tip based on a reader request. How do I keep from eating so much? I am paraphrasing but this is the basis of the tips below.

I hired a sports nutrition coach, Kelli from Apex Nutrition, last summer and it has been a fantastic experience. So much so I have partnered with Kelli.

Much of what Kelli has taught me has been very common sense approach to eating right. A long the way I picked up some valuable tips on dealing with my intake of foods. I am going to share a few below.

Not eating more than I need to

  • Hire a nutritionist to discover what your Resting Metabolic Rate is so you know how much you should be eating in
  • I log everything I consume (Some days) so I can make sure I am not overspending my calorie budget
  • I plan meals in advance so I don’t have to over think my meals an leave anything to chance

Know what to eat and drink

Know when to eat

  • Eating several small meals a day spaced approx 2 hours apart can do wonder for digestion and metabolism
  • Not eating 2-3 hours before going to bed
  • Not eating 1-2 hours before a work out or race
  • Not especially breakfast

Changing your diet is never an easy task and I have tried many things to keep from pigging out. While I was doing many of things above I still struggled to loose or keep off. What it boiled down to was .

If you are frustrated with your diet and food choices don’t despair, Hire Kelly!

Until the next tip have a great ride,
