If ‘going on a diet’ sounds like a step too far, you may be able to reduce your calorie intake less painfully by cutting down on some of the worst offenders, the foods (and drinks) that are loaded with calories but don’t satisfy or fill you up for very long.
Replace those silent calories with some lower calorie alternatives, and increase your activity levels, and soon you could be losing excess weight steadily and permanently.
A motor racing driver needs to be strong and aerobically fit. Healthy eating and a good nutritional plan are an essential platform for ongoing training and for racing.
The single most important nutritional factor for race day is hydration; without adequate hydration, concentration levels will fall. In addition, a well thought out plan for pre-race meals and post-race recovery will provide optimum energy levels and minimise the impacts of travelling and long weekend events.

A healthy diet needs to contain adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals, but you might need to make a study of nutrition in order to work out where to find all these good things.
