Fuel For Life by Bear Grylls

Published by Bantam Press for £14.99

What have Bear Grylls and I got in common?  Well, not a lot on the face of it, but dig a little deeper and you will find that we do actually share some dietry precepts.  Like Bear, I have abandoned gluten and dairy products, I havent yet quite managed to cut out sugar, and feel a great deal better for it.  Bears thesis is simply that by eating better, you will feel better.  His book is full of inspiring ideas and recipes.  He is not at all dogmatic, but suggests that you can make gradual changes over a period of time.  If you are looking to improve your health and fitness, you may just find this book inspires you.  I havent yet abseiled down a rock face, but give me time.
