Many people take up running to lose some weight.

If this is you or you've been running regularly for a while and are struggling to achieve your weight loss goals, you're going to love this podcast episode. In this episode, I talk with Emma Andrews.

Emma is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Plant Based Culinary Professional, and co-founder of Pineapple Collective, an Education Strategy and Content Marketing Agency working with natural health and wellness brands.

Emma specializes in sports nutrition, longevity education, and plant-based cooking.

She has coached athletes from the "everyday" to the "elite", and has spent over 6 years researching and developing her skills as a food coach in Australia and Canada, and working as a plant-based sports nutrition educator hosting workshops all across North America.

Some topics we chat about include:

  • Common reasons why runners don’t lose weight.
  • Foods to swap, emphasize or exclude.
  • Nutrient timing (and how this affects weight loss).
  • Meal and snack ideas.
  • Managing cravings and your appetite.
  • Food journaling and calorie counting - should you do it?
  • How to develop positive body image as a runner.
  • Hydration and weight loss.
  • and much more!
