    How much weight are you trying to drop? When exactly is your triathlon? I know of a glycemically balanced program that might be of interest. Let me know. My e-mail is  That's a great goal to have.

    It's great that you have chosen to change your lifestyle and incorporate running into your life, in addition to your change in diet. However, I would say from my experience as a runner that a diet for weight loss and a diet for training can be a bit different pending your weight goals; heavy athletic training can require calorie increases. What is your current diet composed of in terms of carbs, fibers, and proteins?

    Nutritionist Aimee Gallo will be doing a live free chat this Friday geared towards female triathletes/runners for the GOTRIbal network. It would be a great place to pop in and get some really helpful info from someone who knows.
