METRIC/IMPERIAL CONVERSION CHART


I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT CHEFS EAT THE BEST FOOD AND THE WORST IN EQUAL MEASURE.

They work with the freshest, most delicious ingredients available, cook them
perfectly and are constantly trying little tasty mouthfuls as they work. But do they
get home and make themselves a nutritious meal at the end of their 16-hour shift?
I’m afraid they do not. The punishing working life of a chef means that they
often rely on junk food and sugary snacks to get through the day, and finding
time for exercise is really hard. When I was working in the restaurant at Royal
Hospital Road, I never left the kitchen, sending everyone else out on their break
rather than getting out myself, and I was snacking on the wrong things
throughout the day. Over time, I let myself get out of shape. My chef’s whites
got tighter and tighter and I felt lethargic and sluggish a lot of the time.
It all changed when I started forcing myself to go to the gym for a run. I had to
schedule it in like a trip to the dentist so I couldn’t get out of it! I started with
5km, then 10km, then, before I knew it, I was running my first marathon! That
was followed later the same year with an ultramarathon in South Africa … I was
hooked. Being fit made me feel great and it became my escape from my very
busy life. My eating improved, the weight came off and I looked and felt so
much better. My health improved dramatically, too. I turned 50 recently and,
given that my father died of a heart attack at 53, Tana organized a complete
health check-up for me. I was in training for the Ironman Triathlon World
Championship in Hawaii at the time and when they checked my pulse, it was the
lowest resting heart rate for a man of my age that they had ever seen! I must be
doing something right …
For me, being healthy involves eating well and taking exercise. This sounds
obvious but I can’t stress enough the importance of doing these things in
combination (though not necessarily at the same time!). To improve your diet
without exercising can only get you so far when you are trying to lose weight or
boost your health. Similarly, to take up exercising without considering what you
eat will have only limited success. It is the combination of the two that brings
better health.
But this is not a diet book telling you what (and what not) to eat, nor is it full
of faddy ideas about eating cabbage soup or living off grapefruits or eating like a
caveman. It works on the very simple premise that what you put into your body
makes a difference to how it functions. It also acknowledges that the body has
different requirements depending on what you are expecting it to do. If you are
trying to lose a bit of weight you need to eat less than when you are maintaining
a healthy weight, and when you are taking part in rigorous exercise you will need
to fuel your body correctly to ensure it has the resources to deliver.
Finally, healthy eating doesn’t have to be dull! As a chef, I want the food that I
eat to be tasty and satisfying as well as good for me. When I’m in training, I don’t
want my taste buds to get bored by eating the same things over and over again.
And I don’t ever want to feel deprived. These are my go-to recipes when I want
to eat well at home, and my great hope is that they will inspire you to get
cooking to improve your own health whatever your personal goal. Here’s to
better health!
