Summary

We all know the benefits of healthy eating, but in practice, it’s often just not compatible with a busy, working lifestyle. Grabbing food on the go between meetings, before you rush to the gym, after catching up with friends - there’s just not enough time to be fussy - what you eat often takes a backseat.  

But what if that didn’t have to be the case? What if what you were eating actually gave you more time: boosting your productivity, increasing your focus, and ensuring that you didn’t fall victim to that daily 3pm energy slump? 

Productivity and nutrition experts Graham Allcott and Colette Heneghan present a new way to think about what you eat: the Productivity Ninja way. A new book in the best-selling Productivity Ninja series, Work Fuel shows you how eating well can and should fit into your lifestyle, however busy it is. From surviving conferences and work trips to how to best put together your food shopping list, Work Fuel provides you with an investment plan, promising to improve your performance, focus and energy by changing the way that you eat.

Nothing new, but well presented anyway.

I'm going to return this book.

It isn't bad, in fact it's quite well narrated, but it just isn't of any benefit to me.

That's because of where I'm at, but whether you will benefit will depend upon your own personal starting point -- I'm already experienced and knowledgeable with nutrition, and as such this did not present me with any new information.

Also, I have been vegan for 6 years and not eaten meat for 15 years, and this book only vaguely mentions the benefits of avoiding animal products -- which, btw, are all unnecessary for good health. Yes, it includes information on eating a predominantly plant-based diet, but it still incorporates animal products in a way I personally deem as unnecessary.

That said, however, for anyone who is living a fast paced lifestyle and doesn't know where to start, or lacks proper food education, this will undoubtedly be a great place to begin.

There are also a few exercises in the book, which I personally didn't enjoy hearing and had no intention of carrying out; I listen to audiobooks when I'm walking, running or driving, and as such these tasks always irk me somewhat.

The narration kept the book interesting, and if you are new to nutrition, or want some semi-decent ideas on how to improve your diet, then don't listen to my personal negativity as this book will certainly be of benefit to you.
