Keeping Your Period As A Runner

Mar 28, 2022 | Let's Hear From The Experts

Kristy Baumann is a Registered Dietitian, marathon runner, wife, and mom to 6-month old and 3-year old.

As a new runner, she thought she was eating healthy to support her training. In reality, she was eating too ‘clean’ and unknowingly was restricting calories, cutting out fat and ignoring hunger signs. Food was constantly on her mind and she had a big sweet tooth. These were all signs of underfueling that resulted in recurring injuries and a poor relationship with food. It wasn’t until she began to change her mindset around food, understand the science of nutrition and how the body works that she was able to learn to fuel properly, feel more energized and improve her running.

Now, she is on a mission to spread the message that restricting food and following fad diets is not the answer. Having a positive relationship with food is the foundation of fueling well as a runner. You can follow her on IG @marathon.nutritionist.
