Cook, Eat, Burn

Cook, Eat, Burn sees young TV cook Donal Skehan undertake a series of challenges, and prepare some healthy food, designed for an active lifestyle. During the series Donal climbs Ireland’s highest mountain, goes kayaking, coasteering, rock climbing and abseiling, cycles the Green Way in Co Mayo and joins a boot camp in Dublin. He is joined on the challenges by Dr Brendan Egan, a university lecturer on sports nutrition and a player for the Sligo GAA senior football team. Brendan explains to Donal the different types of exercise he is undertaking, and the different physiological effects they are having on his body and together they discuss the best types of food to eat for quick bursts of energy, for prolonged bouts of exercise and for recovery. Donal cooks four separate dishes in each episode, designed to match the activities and maximise the health and fitness benefits derived from them.
