# 3 Weight Gain
Do: Recognize that marathon training requires appropriate fueling. Like many runners, I started running to lose weight. I assumed that marathon training would be a great way to speed up the process. It isn’t; marathon training leads to increased hunger and feelings of food entitlement.
Don’t: Allow your training to lead to food entitlement. Running 16 miles is pretty amazing, but it doesn’t mean you can overeat on pizza, cookies, bagels and other high carb foods every day of the week. High quality food keeps marathon hunger in check and provides energy for your runs.
