Alan Murchison is a Michelin-Starred chef. He's also a nutrition coach and cook to some of the world's top cyclists. But like all things in life, success is hard-won, and you can't just expect to keep it once you've got it. In this episode, Alan - aka The Performance Chef - tells Anthony and James what it takes to get to the top, and discusses the high and lows of staying there.
Alan is also the author of The Cycling Chef series of recipe books for cyclists, whose recipes feature each month in Cyclist magazine, and which are published in full by Bloomsbury.

We hear a lot about ketones in the pro peloton, but what are they?
According to the experts H.V.M.N, ketones are a natural source of fuel for your body. When stored carbs are depleted, your body starts to convert fat into ketones. Studies show that ketones are 28% more efficient than glucose, making them a super-efficient fuel source for the brain and the body.
These benefits led H.V.M.N to create Ketone-IQ: a drinkable ketone designed to support energy, focus and endurance.
Developed alongside the U.S. military, Ketone-IQ is one of the most powerful ketone supplements on the market. It’s designed to elevate your ketone levels for up to 4 hours – much longer than other products. Plus, it’s vegan, caffeine free, and compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s guidelines. That’s a major win for athletes.
Ketone-IQ Shots are the best way to get your ketones on the go. They’re portable, convenient, and fit perfectly in your pocket during a ride or a race.
