What to avoid


Meat before a big run (it will not digest in time for the run and you will feel it)


French Fries/Onion Rings (NO FRIED FOODS!!! Bad for everything)


Too much cheese


Doritos (all chips unless baked are pretty bad for you)






Buttered Popcorn at the theater, cooked in oil (air pop is good, but the taste is plain)


Soda and Monster Drinks




Buying microwave Popcorn (or any other product). Compare the different types and go for the one with less fat or less sodium.


List the foods you like that are not on the list and look them up to see if they are healthy or not before you eat them.


Design a diet based on what’s good for you and what you like.


Don’t overeat (you will feel bloated)


Don’t under eat (you will collapse during a run)


Go online and search for the amount of calories you should eat per day. See Mr. Mendoza for help after practice.
