Tom Daley fitness and nutrition book to HQ

HQ is to publish an "accessible and effective" nutrition, fitness and lifestyle book by diver Tom Daley, who will be representing Team GB in the Rio Olympics this August.

Executive publisher of HQ, Lisa Milton, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to Tom's Daily Plan from Rory Scarfe at Furniss Lawton.

Featuring more than 80 "easy-to-prepare" recipes, home workouts and lifestyle tips, Tom’s Daily Plan will show readers how to train their body and mind to reach their health and fitness goals.

The book will contain "quick, delicious" meals that can be cooked on a budget, with Daley’s workouts designed for time-poor people who require no extra equipment than what they have at home. He includes 20-minute daily routines that can be adapted, depending on the reader's ability and activity levels, for five days of the week, with two rest days.

Daley said: “As an Olympian, who trains for five hours a day, six days a week, I have learnt a huge amount about food and nutrition and have spent a lot of time trying to learn about my body and mind so I can perform to the best of my ability. This book aims to pass on some of these ideas, so that you can achieve your best and feel amazing, all day, every day.”

Daley, who shares his nutrition and fitness tips on social media, has 2.54m followers on Twitter, 1.3m on Instagram, 2.64m likes on Facebook and 252,086 subscribers to his YouTube channel.

Milton said: “Healthy eating is one of the current hottest trends, who better to help us help ourselves than Tom. He loves food, he loves exercise and he totally understands that we can’t all be at his level, but with a healthy diet and exercise everyone can be the best version of themselves.”

The book will be published on 29th December 2016 in trade paperback and e-book priced at £16.99.

Daley published his autobiography My Story with Michael Joseph in 2012.
