NUTRITIONIST’S VERDICT

‘With the focus on lean protein and good carbs, Jodie’s diet provides theright balance of nutrients to fuel her training, replenish her glycogen storesafterwards and repair and build her muscles. Heavy training can strain theimmune system so Jodie should buy yoghurt with probiotic bacteria or takea probiotic supplement. Eating prebiotic foods such as banana and onionwill also help boost good bacteria. Making sure her diet contains vitamin Cand zinc will help strengthen her immunity too, so an orange, two kiwi fruitsor juice at breakfast would be good plus pumpkin seeds to boost zinc.’
