With most of the county signing up to the gym and looking to lose some of the Christmas excess, we thought that it would be worth sharing ‘The Jockey Diet’ to help shed pounds and stay healthy this January. Amazingly, jockeys manage to stay fit and healthy on less than 1,000 calories per day, and top riders – including Frankie Dettori – have donated their favourite low-calorie recipes to help us become winners in the weight-loss stakes. The meals – of between just 300 and 500 calories per serving – were chosen by Dettori, Hayley Turner, Ryan Moore, Richard Johnson and Paul Hanagan. Like all professional jockeys they have to maintain a certain weight for races and are constantly checking the scales.
While most men in Britain devour around 3,000 calories a day and women consume up to 2,000 calories – jockeys manage to perform a highly active job on around 1,000 calories per day. Now five nutritious recipes from top jockeys – along with tips on healthy eating – have been included in the Jockey Diet, which has been prepared by experts from the Professional Jockeys Association nutrition team. Frankie Dettori’s Chinese Noodles with Beef and Green Beans (Serves 2 - 300 calories per serving).
Britain’s best-known jockey, Frankie Dettori, is famous for winning all seven races at Ascot in September 1996. Dettori’s recipe for Chinese Noodles with Beef and Green Beans has just 300 calories per serving. Heat the oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan add the beef and stir fry for 5-7 mins, add the cooked beans, stir fry vegetables, horseradish sauce and soy sauce. Hayley Turner is the most successful female jockey riding in Britain. She was the first lady jockey to ride more than 100 winners in a season. Add the rice and cook over a low heat, stirring continuously until the rice is yellow and shiny. Gently fry the pepper for a few minutes in a little oil, add courgettes and mushrooms and cook until soft. Three-times champion Flat jockey Ryan Moore has won the Derby, the Oaks and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp - plus a host of other top races.
His chosen recipe, Fried Rice with Vegetables, is tasty, quick to make and is just 300 calories per serving. Richard Johnson would have been champion jockey many times over but for AP McCoy, who he has been runner-up to most years.
His Pork & Cashew Story Fry recipe has the most calories of any dish in this list but at 500 cals it is still a meal that you will not gain weight with. Paul’s Salmon Parcel recipe is very quick to prepare and make, as time is in short supply for top jockeys.

Serve with a small portion (3 egg sized) of new potatoes and boiled green beans and carrots. Eating out is part of a jockey's life and needs to be convenient and quick, especially when on the move.
It is all too easy to grab whatever is available or cheap without thinking about the nutritional balance. Recipes and tips were provided by the Professional Jockeys Association Nutrition Team and the jockeys' training aid 'Fuelling Winners'. One slice of multi-grain bread with organic peanut butter, protein shake, fruit and vegetables juice. Salt free cooked meat with slow digesting carbs like whole grain bread or brown rice and veggies.

One of Ireland's most successful sportspeople, jockey Tony McCoy, tells his fascinating story of how he lives with a fear of failure which has seen him ride over 4,000 winners without having a fear of injury in a career which has caused him to suffer over 50 broken bones. Over the years, these top riders have all developed favourite recipes for meals that are quick to make and are extremely low in calories. He has ridden over 500 winners in the UK in the last five years – including the Derby - and his lowest riding weight was 8st 6lbs. Here we give you the low down on the top 12 that have given us a right old chuckle when running on the track. ShapeFit has thousands of pages of fitness content with fun and interactive tools to help our visitors lose body fat, build lean muscle and increase their energy levels. Tony also talks about how he learned to become a winner, the importance of providing oneself with obstacles in order to be pushed to one's limits, winning the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award and how his patience is tested with a diet and weight loss regime which has seen him lose 5 pounds in an hour. Having worked as a line mechanic, landscaper, custodian, carpenter, web developer and disk jockey, he hopes to bring fresh insight into the topics he writes about from a variety of experiences.

High Fiber & Protein Diet Menus Good Foods to Eat Before Weightlifting The Glycemic Index for Kidney Beans Foods to Avoid with High Cholesterol How to Lose Weight All Over To lose weight, you need to be selective with your carbohydrates.
Glycemic load is a measure combining the amount of carbohydrates in food and their effect on blood-sugar levels.

Foods that raise blood sugar also increase insulin levels, which, in turn, increase hunger. Whole-grain breads have all the nutritional value of the grain's kernel and relatively low glycemic loads.
Rye is in many ways like wheat, but it is more well-rounded as a source of protein and it is higher in fiber than wheat.
As far as weight loss goes, fiber contributes to making food seem more satisfying, thus decreasing your appetite. Among all the grains, rye has the highest lignan content, and it is an excellent source of minerals, such as manganese and magnesium. Barley is also rich in fiber and lignans, and it is a great source of proteins and minerals, especially magnesium and selenium.
Rye and barley have relatively low gluten content, which is the protein responsible for bread's elastic-like structure. Without gluten, bread falls apart easier, so other flours are usually added when making barley bread. Although the proteins in wheat aren't as well-balanced as those in rye and barley, it is still an excellent source of protein and other minerals, such as manganese, phosphorus and magnesium. Using it as a substitute for less healthy sources of carbohydrates can help you lose weight. However, oats are a nutritious source of dietary fiber and minerals, especially calcium, potassium and magnesium.
Lysine, in particular, is a protein that many grains lack in sufficient quantity, but oats and rye are rich in it.
