    Ever wondered if a Ballet dancer fuels up on potatoes?

    …Wonder no more. We caught up with Reece and here’s what he had to say:

    “In terms of eating potatoes – I do, and regularly!  I’d say at least 3 meals per week contain potatoes. I use them in two different ways. In the run up to a pre-performance (before a show), potatoes will often be in my meal as my source of carbohydrate, which helps fuel me throughout the performance.  I will have this meal approx. 2 hours pre-performance to allow my body to digest fully and then release the carbs when I am on stage. If I don’t have a performance, often I’ll have potatoes in my evening meal at home. This will be the biggest meal I eat and potatoes are very useful for refuelling my body and the carbs from potatoes help my body absorb protein – both of which are crucial for me the repair my muscles for the next day of training.”
