"One of my favourite meals during Fit Factor was chicken and spinach curry: Fry an onion in olive oil, once browned remove from heat and add two heaped teaspoons of curry powder, half a teaspoon of all purpose seasoning and half a teaspoon of paprika. Return to the heat and add two chicken breasts cut into cubes. Fry for 30 seconds and thoroughly mix then add a carton of passata and enough water to ensure the chicken is covered. Add some spinach, bring to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Eat without rice or Nann bread. If you increase the quantities make a big pan full so you have a meal for the next few days." - Nick Cotterill "Do it for yourself, not because you think you should or somebody has suggested you should. Set yourself small goals and the buzz you get when you achieve them just motivates you to do more. We are all capable of achieving far more than we think we are." - Claire Hancock "You are never too old, big or heavy to get fit and lose weight. Just take a look at what''s been done by the Fit Factor eight. A positive attitude and giving 100% is what you need to do. Do things at your own pace and do it for no one but you." - Ian Gibson
