Fit Fuel: A Chef’s Guide to Eating Well, Getting Fit and Living Your Best Life

I know it works because it’s built on the same health-focused principles I live by every day.

Celebrated chef and culinary personality, Robert Irvine, shifts his tough love tactics from the restaurant owner to the every day man (and woman!) with his new book, Fit Fuel: A Chef’s Guide to Eating Well, Getting Fit and Living Your Best Life. Developed from the lifetime of training and nutritional knowledge of Chef Irvine, with support from distinguished fitness writer Matt Tuthill, Fit Fuel is designed to inspire the countless individuals who find themselves struggling to find the motivation to reach their personal health and fitness goals. The book launches today, August 11, and is available at and on Amazon.

“Fit Fuel represents the first time that I’ve combined my passion and decades of experience in food and fitness with my ‘no excuses” motivational approach, to create a sensible and sustainable guide for those that are truly interested in changing their lives for the better,” said Chef Irvine. “I know it works because it’s built on the same health-focused principles I live by every day.”

Chef Irvine, whose hit Food Network series, Restaurant: Impossible, has skyrocketed his popularity as a stern-but-fair culinary expert, has created Fit Fuel as a means to provide its readers with the assurance that healthy living does not equate to boring food and painstaking workouts. The book is segmented into three distinct sections, the first of which examines the mental aspect of goal setting, habit forming and long-term maintenance. Here, Chef Irvine provides encouraging, digestible ideas of how to change the way we see and think about food, our selves, and our own unlimited potential. Just as he’s done in season after season of Restaurant Impossible, Chef Irvine provides readers with the same no-excuses encouragement and mental coaching in Fit Fuel, motivating with tools, resources and inspiration every step of the way.

The second section of the book focuses on training, with an easy-to-follow plan, demonstrated through A and B photography and well-defined techniques that the 49-year-old British Royal Navy veteran considers fundamental to his own lean and muscular physique.

In its final section, Fit Fuel goes on to reveal recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, all illustrated with realistic photography and step-by-step instructions. Few dishes or main ingredients are overlooked, despite their unmerited reputations as “no-no” foods. From pancakes to salads, beef to fish, Chef Irvine challenges the idea of good vs. bad as it pertains to the everyday diet, even sharing a handful of recipes to satisfy sweet tooth and emphasize the fact that healthy eating does not require deprivation.

Fit Fuel: A Chef’s Guide to Eating Well, Getting Fit and Living Your Best Life retails for $25.00 at A portion of the book’s proceeds will support the Robert Irvine Foundation, a not-for-profit organization founded by Chef Irvine that supports the individuals and organizations committed to enriching the lives of our military personnel (active, retired and veterans) and their families.
