The secret to nutrition and training success?
This weekend I ran the first ever Performance Nutrition summit. An online conference featuring 5 of the UK’s top nutritionalists in Gavin Allinson, Matt Lovell, Laurent Bannock, Graeme Close and James Morton.
Between them these guys look after about 50% of the UK’s pro teams including Man City, Liverpool and Spurs football clubs, England Rugby, London Irish, Munster, London Broncos rugby clubs, UFC fighters, International Boxers, you name it!! SO it’s safe to say they know what their doing!
Over the course of the 2 days we covered everything from habit formation and NLP, to nutrient timing, to protein requirements, carb strategies, fasting, and much, much more. Click HERE to sign up for the summit and you’ll get a recording of all the talks this week.
But let me tell you that each and every one of the presenters specifically spent time emphasising that these strategies have their place, but ONLY after you’ve mastered the basics. The fundamentals of eating clean and building good habits.
Mastering the basics is the secret to success everyone is looking for!!
It was great to hear these top of their game coaches stress the importance of good foundations.
