Nutrition is as individual as your fingerprint! Everybody metabolises food/energy at different rates. For a complete and confidential individual assessment and recommendations contact me.

But for now - to get us started - here are some simple tips which everybody can benefit from...

  • No supplements will replace real whole seasonal food! Get your protein from Meat, Fish Eggs not bars!

  • Eat mindfully (NO phones or tablets), slowly and chew all foods to a liquid – your stomach has NO teeth!

  • Don’t drink a lot with your meals it will dilute stomach acid which affects digestion

  • Get more sleep-Studies have found lack of sleep decreases recovery time and increases your risk of injury and avoid phones or tablets in the bedroom – these interfere with sleep and other bedroom activities!

  • Keep yourself hydrated by drinking small amounts of water instead of downing large amounts in one go. Your muscles are 75% water and a 3% loss can reduce strength by 10% and speed by 8%!
