The new Formula 1 presenter reveals her diet secrets
6.30am: Kick off with builder’s tea and scrambled eggs in my hotel near the race track. I can’t digest gluten well so travel with oat biscuits to replace toast. Orange juice and natural yogurt.
8am: After a blast of Davina McCall’s fitness video I arrive at the track to go through all my interview questions for the drivers.
9am: Drink green tea to avoid loading up on coffee while I’m in the teams’ hospitality areas. Film a pit-lane feature before the drivers’ practice sessions start.
11am: Snack on almonds and an apple. Get through two litres of water while shuttling between the pit lane, team paddocks and commentary box.
1pm: Working lunch with the film crew – smoked mackerel and salad. I stay away from pudding (I’ve heard that too much sugar damages the collagen in your skin).
Nigel Denby, dietitian, says: "Suzi manages an almost perfect day. A really great breakfast with nutrient-packed proteins, slow-release carbs and fruit juice gets her off to a flying start. More lean protein snacks and regular doses of fruit and veg top up her energy and nutrient levels. While too much sugar isn’t great for your teeth and waistline, it won’t hurt your skin, Suzi!"
