  • Steak

    Meat or no meat in your running diet?

    When we exercise, we use our muscles, and when we eat meat, we are eating muscle. So it is not surprising that before the advances in sport nutrition that have taken place in the last 50 or so years, many people assumed that consuming meat was essential for anyone who exercised regularly, since this was seen as the logical way to prepare and refuel the muscles used during exercise.
