Question:

Hi, I am starting out training as a beginner for the Great South Run in October.  I am doing it as fundraising but also to help lose weight.  Can you recommend some good foods I can eat to help give me the energy but not to put on weight?  I am a vegetarian (no fish also) who is very prone to weight gain.

Thank you!

Jane

Answer:

 Hi Jane,

A great source of protein and carbohydrate for energy levels are lentils, chick peas, kidney, pinto and black-eyed beans. Try using them in curries or as hot or cold salads mixed with olive oil, lemon juice and coriander -tasty! You could consider a vegetarian protein supplement if you are struggling to get enough protein from your diet.

Good luck with the training,
