I'm a marathon a month girl....I have 3 more states to complete marathons in 50 states! I gained a ton of weight marathoning, eating too many carbs, no fat...Another runner told me about this diet because my feet hurt from too much weight...It is everything I was ever against! This is a crazy diet for me, however I have been eating Paleo for a week and am now shedding inches...Amazing, no pounds, just inches...I wondered about portion control, how many calories etc. to eat. I run a marathon or ultra every month... I have been eating until I've felt full which is alot....Also I had to break down yesterday and eat a ton of carrots and Jicamas for a carb load because I am not eating grains or beans...Any suggestions on a book for ultra runners trying to be on Paleo?

Whilst not an ultra marathoner - my housemate just completed his third marathon; but his first on Paleo! He got a PB and had so much energy!

He read quite a lot of Nell Stephenson, as she is a Paleo athlete with lots of great advice.

Good luck!

All of them are good but Loren Cordain "The Paleo Diet" wrote the "The Paleo Diet for athletes also. Mark Sisson at marksdailyapple (the primal blueprint) just did a series of posts on eating for marathoners. He was a world class marathoner and Ironman Tri athlete. He really knows his stuff.
