thoughts on eating in and dining out in the Delaware Valley
Monday, December 20, 2010
On the seventh day of Christmas blogging, my favorite newspaper reminded me that even through my biggest and best meals, running still works. This particular study found that of three groups whom they fed huge breakfasts, the group that ran before breakfast gained -- wait for it -- no weight. Now, the group that didn't exercise gained the most, and the group that exercised after eating gained about half as much weight as the non-exercising group. Not to mention running's effects on mood during the stressful holiday season. So for giant meals, make sure you run sometime after your coffee and before your breakfast (my favorite running window).
