Sports Nutrition Consultations
I provide personal Nutritional Consultations in London. These consultations are suitable for anyone who is serious about improving your health or performance in some way. You don’t need to be an international standard athlete. I get just as much pleasure helping an overweight stressed businessman as I do an Olympic athlete.
Some of the activities the last few clients have embarked on include:
- Guy last year completed the marathon de sable.
- One client climbed Everest.
- Another walked 800 miles in 30 days around the cliffs of Cornwall.
- A third completed an iron man.
- A 4th client recently qualified for the Hawaii Iron Man.
- We’ve chap focusing on a south pole solo mission later this year
- We saw someone with chronic fatigue the week before with a rare digestive disorder
Prior to meeting you’ll complete 3 online questionnaires, this information helps me evaluate where you are currently and the likely areas for improvement. The data that is collected comes from different sectors of your life and helps me build a 3 Dimensional profile of you, your body and what makes you tick. The first questionnaire is
Lifestyle Analysis and Questionnaire
This in depth survey helps identify what makes you tick, your motivations, day to day habits, working strategies, likes, dislikes and trends. When we analyse the answers we can identify patterns that can provide insights into your behaviours which may have been contributing to your results and highlight immedaite areas for improvement.
Symptom related questionnaire
This is a detailed questionnaire designed to find any imbalances in your body; it tackles all areas of the body, immune system, digestive function, neurotransmitter release. It provides insight into areas of likely imbalance and importantly areas which may require further investigation.
It’s hard to believe that a questionnaire can provide this level of insight, I compare it to a psychometric type of analysis which you may be more familiar with. I’m often amazed at how accurate these can be when all I’ve done is answered a few multiple choice questions. This really can be an absolute eye-opener!
This detailed evaluation will suggests food groups and ratios of macro nutrients which would be most suited to your metabolic type, it takes the guess work out of beginning your programme. e.g. You may be metabolically suited to having a diet that has higher or lower levels of carbohydrates.
Everyone has a slightly different metabolic makeup if you take 2 ends of the spectrum and contrast people who live in arctic regions and those that live around the Mediterranean. Throughout the millions of years of human evolution and adaption those 2 different populations will have adapted widely differing different metabolic profiles due to teh foods that they typically consume.
Even with what might be considered similar ethnic backgrounds there can be big differences, it’s why I need to eat more often than my wife, often she will say I can’t believe you’re hungry again. You might know people that can eat a really poor diet but never seem to put on any fat. These differences are often due to differences in metabolic type.
This information is essential to fine tuning your diet so we can match your metabolic type with your nutritional requirements.
We’ll then meet in person and have a consultation that will last for up to an hour maybe longer. We’ll review the results of your questionnaires. We’ll discuss your sporting goals and develop a plan for realising them . I’ll also conduct a comprehensive 13 point skin fold body fat analysis.
I’ll write up a report collating information from all 3 questionnaires and our personal consultation. We’ll use this report as your ‘ROAD MAP’ as you make changes and improvements over the coming 6 months. A key compenent of ths report will be the detailed nutritonal strategy that we set up
Monthly consultations. We’ll touch base each month face to face or via skype to monitor your progress, resolve potential problems and set new targets and goals so you continue to improve. We’ll also re -nalyse your body composition.
