I am a registered nutritionist (RNutr Sports & Exercise) accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN) and founder of Bean Nutrition Ltd. I have worked in both the private and public sectors before setting up my nutrition consultancy in 1990. During this time I have worked in the fitness sector, the media, the publishing industry, public relations and the food industry as well providing nutrition advice for hundreds of individuals.

As an author and health writer, I have written 26 books, including The Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition and, over the years, contributed articles to numerous print and digital media. My aim, through my books and articles, is to teach people about food and nutrition in a realistic, practical, interesting way.

I am a strong advocate of science-based advice and am sceptical of anything bearing unsubstantiated claims. I do not sell any nutritional product or supplement. As a former British bodybuilding champion, I have a passion for fitness and believe that physical activity should be integral in everyone’s lives no matter how old they are.
