    Re: Runner's Diet and Nutrition

    It is far too easy to overeat as a result of exercise.  If one runs just 2 or 3 miles they'll get thirsty and likely hungry.  Taking in some Gatorade to replenish electrolytes and a sandwich to satisfy the extra hunger will amount to a lot more than the 200 or 300 calories the exercise burned.  This doesn't even account for a pre-run snack that may be needed for energy.  What to do?
