Runner’s World The Runner’s Diet
by Madelyn H. Fernstrom
If you are a serious runner, or are thinking about starting a running or run/walk program to keep fit and help you lose weight, forget about the traditional food pyramid–or today’s low-carb diets. As noted dietitian Madelyn H. Fernstrom, Ph.D., C.N.S., explains, the eating plan that best meets the needs of runners at all levels is based on a 50 percent carb, 25 percent protein, 25 percent fat ratio. Here Dr. Fernstrom details a realistic program, individualized for each person’s activity level, that will enable runners to maximize their performance while maintaining long-term success at weight control.
In Runner’s World The Runner’s Diet, the reader will discover:
o Why the 50-25-25 ratio works best for runners–and even walkers
o How to match your eating pattern to your running style
o How to make use of a daily food and activity log
With the imprimatur of Runner’s World, the leading authority in the running field, Runner’s World The Runner’s Diet by Madelyn H. Fernstrom with Ted Spiker is the first book to recognize that runners cannot depend solely on physical activity to control their weight–and to outline a lifetime weight-loss plan that is best for their special needs.

Tales from the Drunk Diet
by Lüc Carl
An excerpt taken straight from Lüc Carl’s upcoming memoir, The Drunk Diet: How I Lost 40 Pounds…Wasted, a beer-soaked tale of a long-haired, leather-clad rock ‘n roll party-maker who transformed a whiskey-and-5:00AM cheeseburger lifestyle into a wildly successful weight-loss regime.
Full of charismatic wit and insane stories about his life, this excerpt is a mix of memoir and advice: laugh and be inspired while he takes you along on his hilarious journey to become healthier and fitter, and live vicariously through a guy who likes to have a good time, ALL the time (even if that now means running 8 miles a day).
