As a Michelin-starred chef with personal experience of dieting, Tom Kerridge knows that cooking good food is the first step on the road to both weight-loss and better performance.
Having lost more than 12 stone in the last five years, Tom knows from experience how important it is to motivate yourself to start dieting and exercising - and to stay on track.
In Lose Weight & Get Fit he shows how you can eat well, shed the pounds and kick-start a more active lifestyle. This book is for everyone who knows they want to lose weight and do some more exercise, but also needs the motivation to get started.
As Tom says: "For me, losing weight was less about reaching a target weight and more about getting fitter and healthier. I reckon that setting fitness goals alongside weight-loss goals is a win-win formula for lasting success - and here are the recipes to help you. When I first set out to lose weight, I concentrated mainly on what I was eating,' he says. 'But now I know that it's to do with fitness as well: the two working together is the winning formula for getting maximum results and maintaining those results long term. And the number one rule when it comes to eating well on a diet is to keep food interesting! Every recipe in this book not only sustains you through the day, but provides fantastic tastes and textures with each mouthful."
His home-cooked recipes for British classics, international dishes and family favourites are generous, flavour-packed and nutritious while still lower in calories.
With chef's techniques for the best lower-calorie cooking, plus tips for stepping up to fitness targets, Tom will give you the inspiration you need to lose weight AND get fit. Peri-peri chicken, cottage pie, fudgy chocolate brownies - this is diet food with a difference.

AUTHOR: Tom Kerridge worked as a chef in restaurants across Britain before deciding to set out on his own and take over a rundown pub in the quiet Buckinghamshire town of Marlow. He opened The Hand & Flowers with his wife Beth in 2005, and it went on to become the first (and only) pub in the world to acquire two Michelin stars. In 2014 he opened a second pub in Marlow, The Coach, which was followed by The Butcher's Tap. Most recently, he and his core team launched Kerridge's Bar & Grill, which is housed in the Corinthia Hotel London. His previous books include Proper Pub Food, Tom Kerridge's Best Ever Dishes, Tom's Table and the bestselling Tom Kerridge's Dopamine Diet, Lose Weight for Good and Tom Kerridge's Fresh Start.
