Personal Consultations

Helen can assess your baseline diet and formulate a new diet plan to help you achieve your personal goals, be they for sporting gains or for optimizing your health.

You will be asked to complete a 3 day food diary which will be assessed with nutritional analysis software before your consultation. During your consultation you’ll be informed of how your current diet matches up to scientific recommendations. We can then create a diet plan to fit around your tastes, day to day commitments, and training schedule. A nutrition report will be ready for you to take home with you, along with a nutrition plan for how to take things forward to improve your health, weight, or sporting performance. 

Follow up appointments will help monitor your nutritional status, provide new ideas for your diet plan, and keep you on track to attaining your personal nutrition goals.

Sports & Exercise Nutrition

Nutritional intake analysis:

Your dietary intake can be analyzed to provide you with a report of how your current dietary intake compares to recommended standards for your age, sex and activity levels. Dietary modifications to assess any deficiencies will then be discussed along with practical solutions including daily diet plans.

Performance nutrition plan:

Following nutritional intake analysis a weekly nutrition plan can be devised to fit around your training schedule and other daily commitments. This can be tailored to address personal performance goals whether increasing muscle, decreasing fat, aiding recovery from training sessions, avoiding over-training, or improving performance.

Race day nutrition:

A comprehensive eating and drinking plan can be formulated for a particular major event or competition. This will include a plan for 1 week pre-competition, competition day, and recovery nutrition. The pros and cons of ergogenic aids and supplements will be discussed to help you make an informed decision on these products.

Body composition analysis:

With the use of skin-fold calipers and girth measurements I can assess whole body and site specific fat and muscle stores, and importantly monitor changes over time in response to dietary and training modifications. This can be reported in relation to the elite standard for your particular sport, sex and age group.
