Description

Ian Thorpe has long been known for his incredible swimming achievements; less well-known is that he loves to cook. But Ian has learnt through years of competition that he can't just eat anything and achieve an elite level success, healthy eating is something that he has always had to keep in mind to perform at his peak. Now that he no longer swims competitively or trains for hours he has been able to apply all that he has learned to his diet and health. A lifetime love of cooking teamed with a refusal to give up the flavours of his favourite meals led Ian to develop a plan that allowed him to eat the delicious foods he loves and to maintain a healthy, lean, strong body. In his first cookbook, Ian shares the recipes that keep him trim and healthy. He shares his philosophy on diet gathered from nutritional experts over his years of elite sporting success. There will never be an excuse for eating pizza again.
