    My question: will Melissa be cooking us all dinner, to demonstrate what we should be eating?

    Ed – Ha ha, I take the prefered approach of “empowering the athlete” to take care of themselves! All the advice you need and the satisfaction of knowing that you can fuel yourself anytime, any place, anywhere (and not with Martini for those of you young enough to remember the advert!)

    Hippy – Well dessert can be good, try some high carbohydrate, low fat options such as Malt loaf, rice pudding, fruit scone and jam (easy on the cream!), summer pudding or fresh fruit and mango sorbet!
