Our Olympic golden girl shares her winning secrets

Team GB’s Jessica Ennis got ready for her gold medal-winning performance in the heptathlon event at the London 2012 Olympics by training hard but allowing herself a few treats.

‘I see a nutritionist but not for a strict diet plan,’ Jess, 26, told us earlier this summer.

‘They just check my body fat at different stages through the year and give me advice.

‘Because I’m training hard I have one day off a week and I allow myself a treat of a chocolate bar or a slice of cake.

‘I don’t overdo it or have it every day.’
