    Weight watchers sounds crazy! Have you tried Slimming World? You can eat unlimited complex carbs and lean proteins (and fruit and veg), which is great if you’re training hard. I still find myself craving bread and sugary stuff (which is limited), but it does seem a lot more sustainable.

    I am on we too and for all long runs I calculate actiivity points at high intensity. It is the only way it works for me.

    Hey Bex, I haven’t tried Slimming World but Big Fat Marathon is on it and has had mad success with it! I’m kinda allergic to vegetables, so I struggle with it that way.

    Sarah – I’ve no idea why the hell they changed the Activity Points. Last time I tried WW I ended up with -174 points after 4 or 5 days.

    Matt – 1 mile = 100 cals. I’d be weary of ANYTHING that tells you that you burn 1500-2000 cals in a half marathon. When in doubt, low-ball the calories burned, and high-ball the calories consumed. It’ll work itself out that way.

      Yeah but I am 6 foot 3 and 210lbs Miranda. I usually underestimate what I burn too, the problem is I haven’t been monitoring my intake of food for at least a year.

    I have had the exact same issues with WW that you are describing regarding running. Still, I do like the program- I just want to tailor it to fit me. I had huge success with it in the past but haven’t had luck lately at all. If you find something that works, please keep sharing!!!
