Nutrition - Individual Dietary Analysis

Changing anything in life is never "easy" - least of all your dietary and lifestyle habits! It is however, vital, if you are to reach peak condition and peak health. Diet and nutrition is the cornerstone of optimal physical and mental functioning. Dietary changes become increasingly important when managing chronic health problems, when aiming to reach an ideal weight or body composition, or when wanting to find vibrant energy.

Whilst your personal trainer is there to answer any questions you may have regarding nutrition we have also teamed with Lucy-Ann Prideaux, a nutrition consultant with a Masters Degree in Nutrition and 20 years experience in the field of health and nutrition. She has a nutrition consultancy practice called Simply Nutrition providing dietary and lifestyle coaching and support to individuals and groups. You will receive a 20% discount off the cost of services provided by Simply Nutrition.

An initial consultation is set up to ascertain health, performance and nutritional goals, as well as gather necessary case details. This is followed by the gathering of detailed client (and diet) data via a food and lifestyle journal. A second session is completed over the phone and/or via e-mail, with discussion of how to meet set goals, and achieve optimal health, and performance via proposed dietary change.

Having your current diet and lifestyle evaluated by an experienced qualified nutritionist, being more aware of your day-to-day habits, and getting up-to-date nutritional advice, coaching and support to make necessary changes, is by far the most effective way to eating healthily AND happily.

Support materials include client report, strategies for change, personalised meal plans and recipe ideas, as well as e-mail support, to help put theory into "effective" everyday practice.

Clients that have purchased an additional 'individual dietary analysis' have found it to be most beneficial and strongly recommended as part of your ongoing fitness program. Prices are advertised on her website at www.simply-nutrition.co.uk
