Lately I have read a few blog posts and talked to some friends who are having either nutrition or diet questions. So I have decided to write a quick post to share what I have learned over the past year and a half. This past year and a half I have been working out regularly and have also taken up long distance running as a hobby. Normally I do not have too much difficulty with my weight as long as I eat regularly, but when I train heavily it does makes it hard to maintain. (Many people have trouble losing weight, I have trouble gaining weight or keeping it up because I am so active.) I need to keep close tabs of my caloric intake as well as making sure that I have a balance diet in the process.
