There are many Diets and Supplements on the market these days; some are good some are not. I Like to educate people into a healthier eating plan that fits in with their life style, I do deal with one Supplement, but then again it all depends on your lifestyle and goals.

As my time as a Jockey I tried and tested many diets and healthy eating and with that experience and being a Nutrition Adviser, I know what works!

Food is essential for life, growth and good health. Every cell of every tissue and organ has been made from and is maintained in a healthy state by the food we eat. Also you are only as good as what you put in your body i.e. you don’t put diesel in an Aston martin or a Jaguar and expect it to perform well. Your body is the same; you need to M.O.T, service and look after it.

That does not mean you cannot eat or drink the things you like anymore, it just means you have to learn how to manage what you put in it.


 The only supplement that I promote is BioGenesis, it is used by Crossfit Athletes, an Olympic Cyclist, Triathletes and people who are serious about their training.  It helps with the following benefits.

  • Improving performance
  • Gain lean muscle mass
  • Reduce post exercise soreness
  • Increase energy and endurance
  • Quicker recovery times
  • Increase Mitochondrial volume and ATP
  • Slow the aging process-significantly

Why Do You Need A Balanced Diet?

Dietary needs vary from person to person according to age, sex, state of health and lifestyle. However, a good healthy diet will contain the following substances in the correct proportions and will be called a balanced diet. These substances are:

  • Carbohydrates.
  • Fats.
  • Proteins.
  • Minerals.
  • Vitamins.
  • Water.
  • Dietary Fibre.

Why Do We Need Carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates are a main source of energy and they are classified into two sub-groups:

  • Sugars (Fast releasing carbohydrates)
  • Starches (Slow releasing carbohydrates)

If we consume more carbohydrates than our bodies need then the excess will be converted and stored as fat.

Why Do We Need Fat?

Fat is important nutrients for the body:

  • A Source of energy.
  • Keep us warm as Insulation.
  • Fat can help to support and protect some organs of the body.

There are three main groups of fat:

  • Saturated – mainly animal fats (solid at room temperature).
  • Unsaturated – mainly vegetable or fish (liquid or soft at room temperature).
  • Hydrogenated – liquid hydrogen added to vegetable oils (creating firmer oils to act as saturated fat).

Why Do We Need Protein

Protein helps in the repair and growth of body tissues. It also provides energy if there is insufficient fat and carbohydrate available.

Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are 23 naturally occurring amino acids, the body can manufacture many of these but there are 8 essential amino acids that can only be provided by eating the food that contains them.

There are two types of protein:

  • Animal Protein: (high in fat and salt).
  • Vegetable Protein: (high in carbohydrate and fibre).

Why Do We Need Vitamins and Minerals

They are an essential element to our diet and they perform specific functions, and aid in the following:

  • Prevent infections.
  • Strengthen blood vessels.
  • Growth and repair.
  • Red blood cell production.
  • Energy production.

Although they are only needed in very small amounts, a deficiency could result in illness.

A balanced diet will contain more than enough of the vitamins and minerals that we need. Supplements should only be required if you are medically deficient or do not eat a balanced diet.

Why Do We Need Dietary Fibre

Although the body does not absorb dietary fibre it is still very important. It adds bulk to the meals that we eat and is vital for the proper functioning of the digestive system.

Why Do We Need Water

Water is one of the most important substances required in the body. It composes approximately 70% of body weight. It is vital for transporting nutrients, waste, metabolite and hormones around the body. It is also essential in regulating the body’s temperature. Small losses of water (2-3% of body weight) can seriously impair performance.
