Food coach realist and personal trainer Christian Coates created award-winning healthy food delivery consultancy – a gourmet diet delivery service – straight to those who wanted to eat well and look good.

Fitness Gourmet: Delicious Recipes for Peak Performance (published by Jacqui Small) brings the reader a range of mouthwatering recipes which they can adapt to suit their own diet needs.

Whether your aim is to lose weight, build bulk or maintain (or ‘Burn, Balance or Build’), find out how you can adapt one recipe three different ways to give you the outcome you want.

The information at the start of the book explains the basics of nutrition as well as taking you through the process of working out which diet code is the one for you. Once the basics have been covered it’s time to move onto the recipes which are divided into the categories of breakfasts, snacks, main meals, and  juices, shakes and smoothies.

The photography by Yuki Sugiura is wonderful. The delicious recipes certainly don’t look like ‘diet food’ but takes the healthy eating approach instead. Combine it with the requirements set by your diet code and you should see the results you want.

Fitness Gourmet is available from all good book sellers now (rrp. £25.00).
