I am sorry to have started a new thread, I am just so confused and getting quite annoyed after days and hours of searching online, I hope you can all offer me some pointers as you have done on a lot of the threads I've read on here over the past few days.
I am trying to start running again, sat here in my running gear as I type trying to build up the courage to stand up and walk out the door.
What I am getting really really really annoyed about, is what I am meant to eat! I am starting running again (I completed couch to 5k in 2012 but had surgery on my foot in the August so stopped), last time I never really made any changes to what I ate but now I am in terrible condition, get tired just walking up a flight of stairs, smoking again and at least 3 stone over weight (too scared to weigh myself), I literally have 1 pair of trousers that fit me and its getting to the point I don't want to go outside and have anyone see me, so I've decided that today will be a new start.
Ive searched and searched and all i see is conflicting advice, its the south beach diet, its the low GI diet, apparently if you want to have energy to run, you should be eating 60% carbs but carbs are surely terrible for weightloss? I am desperately trying to find some information on what to eat/food plans for people who want to lose weight and still have the energy to run.
Can anyone point me in the right direction before I retreat to bed crying into my ben and jerrys? I've had a rad through the Runners World running and nutrition forum but i'm really looking for some solid advice on what is good and what is bad, anyone out there have some experience in running for fitness and weightloss and the diets they used? I'd be forever grateful!
