This week’s live show guest was the massively knowledgeable sports nutritionist Anita Bean, author of The Runners’ Cookbook. Anita knows all the latest research and real science behind performance and recovery and answered all your questions. She covered fasted running, overeating after runs, B12 deficiencies and fatigue, plant-based vs veggie vs meat-eating diets, best foods for recovery, DIY energy drinks and the best fuel for ultra races.

Anita is about to release a new book of over 100 Vegetarian Meals for Fitness in 30 minutes, which sounds excellent (scroll down for links)

Anita’s book is on sale 26 Dec 2019, pre-order it here:
Vegetarian Meals in 30 Minutes: More than 100 delicious recipes for fitness
