    I am about 50 lbs overweight have been training for the Cleveland rock and roll half marathon. I have not lost much weight at all. Could you give me advice on how to do so while training for the half? I don’t know if my metabolism is shot or what I was following a 1200 calorie diet per day regardless of how much I was burning during the days. I need help!

      Aisha, it sounds to me like you aren’t eating nearly enough if you are training for a half marathon. Have you heard of Go Kaleo’s blog? Her theory on working out/calorie intake sounds a bit counter-intuitive at first, but I would strongly suggest reading her posts on finding your ideal weight. She also has a great post on calorie intake along w/ links to some “advanced” calorie calculators at http://gokaleo.com/2012/04/29/a-primer-on-calories/

      I am currently training for a full marathon and am on the shorter/petite side but I still eat between 2,200-2,400 calories a day (and often still find myself hungry at night). When training for a half I probably net a bit less than that, but never less than 2,000. You really want to make sure you are eating enough to support your training without crapping out your metabolism!!

  2. Two things: 1) Your diet is fucking immense. Pot Noodle for breakfast, cheese and ice cream for lunch and 10 shots of vodka for a snack? Amazing. 2) WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THE BARCODE READER ON MYFITNESSPAL?! Do you have to pay for that bit, I can’t see it on my app? I can never be arsed faffing about entering each and every food so only ever manage to log a day or two at a time.
