How to have the energy, with Colette Heneghan
In the wake of the re-release of Graham and Colette’s book on nutrition for better, more sustained productivity, the two authors discuss how the project came to be.
> I was making bad choices on a regular basis
Colette describes how her busy international career left no room for her to consider diet, and sapped her energy leaving her saying no to things she otherwise would have wanted to say yes to. This realisation led her to retrain as a nutritionist, leaving her former career behind.
> The title was broken
Graham describes how the previous incarnation of the book was difficult to position within the market, despite readers finding it to be a “hidden gem”.
> Choose how you want to feel
The first point in the book’s nine-point plan empowers us to make choices as to what we eat and drink.
> Eat the rainbow
By having a broader range of colours on our plate, we eat a broader range of nutrients, which is a factor that will improve our dietary health, so Colette describes how “each colour has different gifts to give us”.
