In Eat Like an Athlete, Simone demonstrates that healthy eating shouldn’t mean dieting; it should mean making food and eating choices that will enable you to live a full and healthy life. Simone provides key nutritional information to help you establish a healthy diet that meets your physical activity requirements, and offers practical suggestions like what to eat before exercise, keep in the pantry, take for lunch and cook for dinner. It covers the role of the important nutrients in the body, discusses the impact of the immune system, and addresses questions around fluid intake, food pre- and post-training, and nutritional requirements for different age groups. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated, hard work or expensive. It simply means fuelling your body, rather than depriving it, and examining your food intake and health with a positive outlook. Athletes use nutrition as a tool to maximise peak performance and with Eat Like an Athlete, you can too.
