The secret of the sports elite - and how you can eat to win in your life
World-leading sports nutritionist James Collins shapes the eating habits of Olympic athletes and Premier League footballers, so they are on peak form when it counts. After a decade of working with the likes of Arsenal FC, England Football and Team GB, now he’s distilling his elite sports success into simple food principles that any of us can follow to feel at our best in our daily lives.
Peak performance is all about energy and how to eat and exercise right for your body and your routine. By following The Energy Plan, you will learn how to fuel your body for your life, power through the 4pm slump, get the best out of your day if you're working from home and resist the junk foods that drag you down. Instead you will naturally choose foods that leave you bursting with energy for work and play – and allow you to fully recharge afterwards. You’ll feel more productive, sleep well, lose unwanted weight and avoid illness.
Forget fasting and low carb diets. The Energy Plan is a whole new mindset that will forever change your relationship with food, exercise and your body, giving you a winning edge in everything that you do.
'After following James’s plan, I had so much more energy and felt at my peak physically.’
