The No-Brainer Nutrition Guide For Every Runner

An all-inclusive nutrition guide to help you master your fueling plan, feel strong and confident and run your best race ever!

Created by a Registered Dietitian & marathon runner

As a Registered Dietitian who has spoken to hundreds of runners, I know that proper fueling techniques can be confusing and overwhelming. I also know that incorporating sports nutrition tactics into your running routine is one of the simplest ways to quickly boost performance…  

But let’s be honest, sometimes just getting out the door for a run can be difficult enough, without even thinking about nutrition. I totally get that because I started running at the ripe old age of 30 and had to learn about nutrition along the way. 

I became a runner by signing up for (and then training for) a half marathon. Crazy, right?! During that training, my stomach felt wonky after almost every single run. I wasn’t able to tolerate food, so I never really recovered properly and my legs felt heavy during almost every run. But as a determined new runner, I pressed on!  

During my struggle, I was in grad school and changing careers to become a Registered Dietitian. I learned about the science of fueling, and I implemented these techniques in my new running career.  

Through my education (and some trial and error), I discovered that there is a right and wrong way to practice sports nutrition. As a matter of fact, the right nutrition plan is the secret weapon that you’re probably missing from your training.  

Now my sports nutrition techniques are so ingrained in my everyday life, that I rarely even think twice about fueling. It’s just something that I do and reap the benefits from! As a result, I’ve become a stronger and faster runner, and I’ve gone on to run a full marathon, a dozen half marathons and over 30+ races. Oh, and did I mention that I rarely ever have stomach issues during my races?  

Now, you may be thinking, “Well you’re a Registered Dietitian, and you were taught about sports nutrition in school. I don’t even know where to start!” And you’re right, I do have the knowledge in sports nutrition, and that makes me the perfect resource for YOU.

 Maybe you’ve had some of these questions as you’ve started to look into sports nutrition…  

  • How much should I drink before, during and after a run?
  • Should I be using a sports supplement?
  • What should I eat if I run really early in the morning?
  • What’s the proper ratio of nutrients in a recovery meal?
  • What the heck are BCAA and should I be supplementing with them?
  • How can I follow a meatless diet and still fuel my running routine?
  • What are some natural alternatives to sports nutrition products?
  • How should my fueling change as I increase my mileage? 

If you have any of these questions, you’ve found the answer!

What people are saying...

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the guide - it’s a fantastic tool!! I actually just ran my first half marathon a few ago and wish I had had it during my training. It dispels a lot of myths and explains concepts so clearly, from fact- and science-based standpoints. I really appreciate how you made recommendations so easy to follow as well ( thinking of hydrating as simply taking 2-3 big gulps every 15 minutes). Breaking it down like that makes it so much easier to implement! I think it’s super helpful for both novice and experienced runners!" -- Valerie

“The No-Brainer Nutrition Guide for Every Runner is full of sage, tried and true advice that every runner needs to know, especially those starting out. Natalie addresses all the myths and rumors we hear and read about; topics like carbs, protein requirements, hydration and acknowledges that every runner is different and has different levels of tolerance when it comes to what fuels our bodies. The most important takeaway is to try out the suggestions of different foods and fuels in this book prior to your race day to give your body a chance to figure out what works best for you!” --Cindy

“This is a great, easy to read guide for running nutrition. There are great ideas for things to use for hydration and nutrition, as well as when you use them and how much. It is really easy to follow and I can’t wait to use them on my next training cycle.”-- Jessy

"I am training for my first marathon, and this guide on nutrition really helped me learn how to properly fuel my body!” --Joann

Who created all of this awesome info?

Hey, that’s me! I’m Natalie Rizzo, an NYC-based Registered Dietitian, creator of Nutrition à la Natalie and marathon runner. I write for and act as the expert in several national publications, like Runner’s World, Prevention and NBC News.  

My goal is to simplify complicated nutrition information so that you can achieve all of your fitness and nutrition goals. I want to teach you how to use nutrition and fitness to reach your peak athletic potential, whether that’s losing enough weight to run a mile or running a marathon.  

Before I was a Registered Dietitian, I worked in Advertising and was your standard gym rat. I recognized the importance of exercising, but I never really paid much attention to sports nutrition. Little did I know, I was sabotaging my own fitness routine because I didn’t have enough fuel to even get through my workouts.

Throughout my studies, I learned that no athlete can “go the distance” without knowing how to fuel, refuel and properly hydrate. Now my goal is to help you navigate this complicated landscape of “food as fuel”.
