I am a runner and need to loose weight fast! Any suggestions?

I had my first track meet and i qualified for districts in the mile and 2 mile. I really want to loose 10 Lbs. in 3 weeks, because i don’t want to just end up with a medal like last year, i want to get 1st. I think loosing weight will make me run faster. Should i just stop eating all together?

    Don’t stop eating…keep eating

    Let me give you some food and mini work out tips you can add. I’m only doing this because I honestly think you’ll benefit from it…so get out a pen and paper, okay hun?

    Please follow what i’m about to tell you and i promise you that you will see a new you

    I’m a Vegetarian and I’m super thin, and I always have a lot of protein, and I hate tofu loll …and I have tons of snacks to choose from

    I bareeeely work out ….and I’ve never had a belly, big thighs, or big butt SO Listen k? I’m pretty much perfect-its not cocky,i just am…

    Walk Walk Walk! and walk some more…its actually better than running….running makes your ankles weak over time. Do you want that when your older? I don’t think so. I actually do the bike, which is amazing…the faster you petal the more calories you burn….the belly is actually burning fat b/c you are sweating. Not a lot of ppl. know that walking on treadmill/bike/or walking outside burns fat around the mid section…but it is so true. ALSO IMPORTANT: Do not use incline k? b/c your thighs will get bigger…try little to no resistance!! 🙂 Walking also will burn the extra surrounding fat that is covering muscles (underneath it)…so definitely do a lot of carido. Try sit ups too like 2 to 3 times a week to make abs show quicker!

    Being a vegetarian or even one that eats red meat or dairy like ONCE IN AWHILE is the best to be one because you are healthy as a horse and you won’t have that excess fat and food inside your intestines that most red meats do.

    Look, alright, I’m not trying to promote becoming a vegetarian, but here me out k?

    Here’s what I eat and my protein is perfect and I’m super healthy and have tons of snacks to choose from

    Having a high protein diet is good in loosing fat, because the more protein is in a food item the less total fat and calories from fat!

    I eat lots of beans (Lima, Soy, red kidney, black, navy- RAW; never in can(but that is just my choice-if you wanted canned its NOOOO PROBLEM)

    Try Quinoa too, you can find it in your grain, beans, or nut aisles

    I also eat lots of salad with tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, carrots-yum yum!

    The entire kosher aisle has manyyyy products to munch on!

    Also, Some Kashi products are great to snack on!

    Try Edamame too!- tons of protein and tastes delicious! (Veggie section even though it’s a bean loll)

    Dairy (if you eat it): cheese-I’d suggest you go for this yogurt called “Fage 0” or “Chobani” yogurt (it has about 15 grams of protein in it I believe)… Ummm lets see, what else? Theres Goat cheese and ALL goat products which I consider to eat if my protein is too low (but that is rare b/c I usually get my protein in evvveryday.

    ALL vegetables are fun and easy to cook-I like broccoli, asparagus, yams, pumpkin, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower-and you can do whatever you want with it (fry, boil, steam, baked…etc.)

    Have you ever heard of Matzo’s? they are crackers that have 4 grams of fat per serving (1) and only has 21 grams to 27 grams of Carbs in it depending on which version you get. BUT make sure you get the 100% whole wheat ones ya know?-just to be the healthiest. There is also absolutely no sugar in it either (sugar if not burned turns into fat btw)…..
    The calories range from like 90 to 140 calories too! Oh, did I mention they are extremely delicious!? (Kosher aisle)

    Mott’s applesauce, no added sugar is one of my favorite things to eat too!
    You can find organic applesauce too which provide different flavors without added sugar
    All “no added sugar” products are phenomenal

    NOTE: BEEF, Oh my god -it is very bad for you and does not leave your intestine for months and months (look it up on internet…it’s the worse food for you-unless used in moderation and VERY VERY small portions)

    Brown rice or even white rice is great too
    Miso soups are fantastic as well as any other soups (especially the ones with very little sodium)

    Fruit is ALWAYS a great snack at night!

    Ok, that’s all I can think about now off the top of my head, if you need to know anymore then just message me k?

    Take care

    (I know I went on a rampage here, but I honestly hope this helps!)

    if u stop eating, you wont gain all the nutrients ur body needs to maintain speed and agility!! >.< dont NOT eat!!! bananas are good. eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. it well seriouslt give you a metabolism boost and burn fatt. also, if ur a runner already, try exceeding ur time laps by just a little, but dont strain urself. eat whole wheats and grains; they help to cease ur appetite so that u don't have naughty cravings 🙂 ~good luck!!!

    I should probably be offering you some sort of congratulations. I appreciate your commitment to your chosen sport. Actually, the best way to lose your weight is to keep training on schedule. That and keep your eating supporting your goal. All this said from someone who doesn’t run because I don’t like the feel of my body slamming into the ground. Either way, keep it up, have fun, and you will do super.

    I think it is a bad idea to stop eating all together, your body won’t have what it needs to give you the strength to run, that would be unhealthy. Maybe cut your calories, bread, sweets and red meats. Eat 5 small meals a day with whole wheat carbs, vegetables, 3 fruits, 2 dairy low in fat like soy milk(light) and low fat yogurt or string cheese and protein like egg beaters, turkey, fish or white meat of chicken or nuts. Try a multivitamin for athletes also if you don’t take already. God Bless, hope this helps.
