The foods that joggers need have to meet their energy demands as they have to sweat-out and burn a lot. So if they do not get the kind of high energy that their intensive training asks for they won’t sustain much and will burn-out fast. I have seen myself that when I jog for around 3 miles my body is drained off all its resources; I need immediate recharging, so that I could be ready for the next jogging session.
I am not a professional athelete still I gotta take high energy producing foods like boiled eggs, beans, potatoes, etc. Without them I won’t be able to repair the wear and tear that my body gets from the fitness routines I follow. There are special foods that you cannot do without and they have to be a part of the meals.

Bananas for muscles repair like anything and fire you up so that you can run that extra mile. So my best bet are bananas and at the top of the chart. Eat as many as you can, 3 to start with; they are full of fibers and dissolve in the blood stream quite quickly, so are easily digested; secondly, you get your energy quota from them.
Beef is protein rich food and also supply you the vital iron that helps avoid fatigue that is common with most professional runners, and true for routine joggers like me as well. Some iron-rich vegetables that you can have are beans, peas, most cereals. Eat them and see the difference they make.
Berries are all Vitamin C and Potassium

Now another option worth adopting is berries; sweet, delicious, juicy they repair the muscle tears got from hard running and keep your injuries out. Have berries any types blueberries, blackberries, red-berries, cranberries, strawberries etc. to meet the challenges of your body.
Guys/girls never take your body’s needs non-seriously and eat well to stay fit. Muscles are the key so your goal is to keep them free of damage and fulfill their energy deficiencies.
