Since I started running people have had me try different vitamins and legal supplements. There are many vitamins for runners on the market that advertise faster recovery. Most of the time they are expensive or you have to join a group to sell them to get them at a lower price. In the end I have always felt let down because they never provided the results I was looking for. Usually, my urine was neon green, which means that my body was spitting out what it had too much of. I stopped spending my money on those supplements and decided to eat better.

I know we Americans do not eat right. If you want to have a healthy body you have to listen to what your mom always preached. Eat your fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water. Besides eating right, I do take a Flintstones multivitamin daily. I take them because of nostalgic reasons and they are cheap. If you have a favorite vitamin go ahead and comment. To learn more you can go to diet and nutrition.

If you have any questions or topics you would like for me to talk about Email them and I will address them personally and include them in my videos. Until next time, have a Great Run. Sign up for my newsletter for more tips.

    Hi Gil,
    My philosophy is to eat like your mom told you. Eat a balanced diet. Eat your veggies, drink a lot of water and eat what God made us.
