Amy Yoder Begley - celebhealthy_comAmy Yoder Begley was born on January 11, 1978 in Topeka, Indiana, United States. She is known as an American middle and long distance runner and a US Olympian in the 10,000 meter event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. A product of East Noble High School, she attended college at the University of Arkansas. All throughout her career, she also became known for being a Nike Oregon Project athlete and for being able to train with Galen Rupp, Kara Goucher, Adam Goucher, and Josh Rohatinsky under coach Alberto Salazar.

Amy was diagnosed with Celiac disease years ago. Now she’s opting for a Gluten-free diet. According to her in one of her interviews, “Before I was diagnosed with Celiac, I couldn’t run more than 30 minutes without a bathroom. My day and training was planned around where I could find a bathroom. I also couldn’t eat within 6 hours of running. I was dehydrating in short races like 5,000m. Now that I’m on a gluten free diet my bone density is slowing increasing and the diarrhea, bloating and stomachaches are gone. I can now eat before I run without much worry. I feel much healthier and stronger.”

Now what does she usually eat before she starts racing? “The night before a race I pick a place that has a dedicated gluten free menu,” she said. “I find that these places are more likely to have special areas for preparing gluten free meals. My go to places include PF Changs and Outback. The morning of a nighttime race, I usually eat something I brought with me. That could be gluten free bread like Udi’s with almond butter and a banana.  Alternatively I will have Chex cereal with almond or soymilk. About two hours before a race I will then have 1.5 packets of Generation UCAN.  If I am running a morning race, I would just have the Generation UCAN and maybe a banana.”
