Fossa wrote:In general a runner's diet should just be one that is generally healthy. Unless you're doing serious distance running you don't need to worry about things like carb loading, and even if you are it's too soon for you to be concerned. Before you can carb load your slow twitch muscles need to adapt to increase their mitochondria count and their glycogen storage capability, along with your liver's storage.
Simplifying the math for you, you want to take your body weight in kilograms and multiply it by 0.24. That's how many grams of protein you want, each day, from these foods. Full list can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysine#Dietary_sources

With the protein slack taken up by other foodstuffs, why would it not be? There are healthy diets with meat every meal and healthy diets completely without.

shocklocks wrote:Those are some super protein packed lentils you have there. Also .5g per kg? An 80kg individual needs 40g of protein if he isn't a hard out weight lifter? That's just plain wrong. Like to the point where you're risking protein deficiency.
Ulc wrote:As for the amount of protein in the diet, yeah, that should have been per pound - more exactly, the figure are 0.8 g of protein per kg bodyweight, so said 80 kg. person needs just around 65 grams of protein. That is rather easy to get without eating meat, a couple of glasses of milk, perhaps a egg or two, different kinds of leafy greens, legumes of different kinds and you're there.
