One advantage to the warmer weather is being able to get outside. Spring time provides a great opportunity to start running and training again. Most people will be starting their training over after taking the winter months off.
Often lost in the shuffle of trying to loose weight running is your diet. Diet is one of the most important factors that is usually lost when we start our running programs again. However, there isn't one specific diet that should be followed. Each runner is different, but a good diet will go a long way in seeing results.

"If you want to get fit and lose weight, it's important to make some changes to your diet. And while deep down you may know that to lose weight you must eat less and move more, it's hard to resist the lure of diets that promise instant, permanent results with little work or restraint.
The truth is that diets are a lot like training plans. There's no one diet that's best for everyone. Only one healthy eating strategy is best for a particular person at a particular time. Each diet has its benefits and drawbacks for new runners.
The most important factor in any diet is how well it helps you meet your goals and fits your needs, and helps you maintain the healthy eating habits for life."
