Otherwise known as the Palaeolithic Diet... that’s my nutrition, 90% of the time. Rule 1: if it’s out of a packet, can, jar or tin.... it’s not food! Please come and ask if you want any help or guidance with your current eating plans whether for weight loss or sports performance. I owe my current fitness, health and well-being to others who have helped me, so it is only fitting that I help others. I hope to see you around the gym! Please come and say hello…
