I am a registered nutritionist (RNutr Sports & Exercise) with a degree in nutrition and food science. I am also an award-winning author and health writer, having written 26 books, including The Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition and, over the years, contributed to numerous health and fitness publications.

I have run my own nutrition and fitness consultancy since 1990, working within the media and publishing industry as well in the sports and fitness industry.

My aim, through my books and articles, is to teach people about food and nutrition in a practical, interesting way. I believe in simple, real food and love devising new recipes. As a former British bodybuilding champion (natural), I have a passion for fitness and believe that physical activity should be integral in everyone’s lives no matter how old they are.
