How’s your summer diet shaping up so far?
Summer has landed (apparently) and every so often I see a ray of light shining through my office window, sometimes sticking around long enough for me to warm up a bit.
Last week’s heatwave brought about a few moans in Lancaster (we’re never happy are we?), and it seems that the sun is preparing its hat ready for the end of July – the hottest day ever is on its way.
I don’t know about you, but hot weather can be one of the worst interruptions for my diet. Ice cream adverts start popping up, friends begin inviting you to BBQs and, of course, Wimbledon hits our screens (which in my household means snacking in front of the TV). It seems that all our effort in the gym after Christmas is preparing us for this moment… To go on our summer holiday and pile back on the pounds. We might have a great week away, but we come back feeling sluggish, guilty and disappointed about all that hard-work we’ve just undone. Getting physically fit is extremely important, but your nutritional fitness should also be a priority. What we all need are tasty, fresh and healthy recipes that are easy to make, cheap to buy and perfect for all the family. Our Personal Trainers have put together a fantastic selection of cookbooks to keep you on the straight and narrow this summer, including, our Picnic Favourites and our Low Fat Summer BBQ cookbooks.
Each and every recipe has been hand-picked just for you. With a full nutritional breakdown, including Carbohydrates, Fat, Protein and Calories, you know what your body is eating and exactly how much. Our cookbooks come in a handy PDF format – perfect for use on your phone, tablet or to print out and stick up in the kitchen! All this is yours for just £2.99.
