Matt Lovell: Jessica is exercising hard and hasn't been ill since Christmas – her multivitamin, antioxidant and fish oil supplementation programme will have helped to support her immune system.

Variety can be an issue in any diet, but almost any recipe can be modified and ratios changed to accommodate an individual's goal. Unfortunately a late night snack of crystalised ginger and dates is at the opposite end of the day for these carbohydrates to work best (in terms of body composition at least). On the variety front, different sorts of game are good as these animals tend to forage for themselves – eating a healthier diet means their meat is in turn healthier for us to eat. Rabbit, peasant, partridge and venison are readily available most places.
