I am a ten times marathoner, few times ultramarathoner, countless half-marathoner nutritionist in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. My main focus is on REAL food for REAL results. Whether your goal is to lose weight or improve your running recovery and/or performance: nutrition is key, first and foremost.
I hate fad diets and starvation/extreme approaches with a passion, and my work and philosophy centres around not banning or omitting any one food group (carbohydrates, for example, have such a notoriously bad reputation of late). It’s all about balance and moderation, and of eating the right foods for YOU!
Having worked in the health and weight-loss industry for years, I am passionate about eating well for feeling great. We truly are what we eat. I know that for me personally, if I eat lots of chocolate, cereal, or sugary snacks, that I feel pretty much crap almost straight away or the next day, and conversely, if I eat an abundance of fresh, wholesome, ‘real’ food, along with lots of oily fish, avocado, a variety of veggies and seeds/nuts, then I have an extra spring in my step and feel pretty damn awesome (this is just a little bit about what works for me; however, we are all different and unique).
I know we are all so busy these days though, that’s it hard to find the time to really plan out your ideal, healthy diet plan. That’s where I come in: I wanted to make things easy for people to be able to make small changes and start to feel better (and lose weight) without drastically changing their schedule or feeling overwhelmed. So you can find my three ready-to-go programs here:
These programs will allow you to wade through all the confusion that surrounds food and nutrition online, and easily implement healthy changes: small steps that will lead to big results, and all based on REAL, wholesome food. Try the 5-day sugar-free program, the 14-day ‘clean’ eating program, or the 30-day more comprehensive program that goes into more in-depth detail especially for runners (but is suitable for ALL: runners and non-runners alike).
Together, we can feel better.
