What to eat?

“I could not figure out what I needed, but I was confident that my body would know, in the same way that any other wild animal’s body knows. Each animal has its own unique evolved diet. It is easy to overlook some detail when you’re trying to play God. I would rely on my appetite. And the more I ran, the more I craved greasy pork chops.”

I love this quote from Bernd Heinrich’s book, Why We Run. Heinrich wrote this about his eating as he was training to set the 100k world record at age 41, which he did end up setting.

As runners, we become obsessed with what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat. Why not simply listen to our bodies like other animals?

If you’re eating whole foods this sounds like wise advice.

Check out Salomon TV’s Video on Heinrich, he’s an interesting guy.

“Ideally, I’d like to be a bird, but running is a close second.”
