My love of sport started at an early age. Unable to choose between rugby, swimming, and athletics; I represented my county in national competitions in all three. I was also the youngest member of a relay team that swam the English Channel in 11 hours at age 14.
I was awarded a sports scholarship to a top British school where I was pushed to the limit and eventually burnt out and ended up leaving early. After, I worked in some of London’s top nightclubs and then ended up working for four years as an Equity Derivatives broker in London.
I had about seven years of partying hard, developing an unhealthy relationship with alcohol which caused all kinds of problems.
In my early 20s, I gradually got bored of feeling awful all the time and slowly realised what made me happy. I started to experiment with different methods to improve my health, performance, and attitudes towards life.
I have experienced both ends of the health spectrum, in quite extreme ways which have given me a lot of life experience.
I stumbled across intermittent fasting whilst travelling through South America and realised the power it had to burn fat, boost energy levels and banish hunger pangs. I developed my own method known as “The 2 Meal Day” which is a fundamental part of my bespoke online plans. I use my passion for “real food” to create delicious, simple meals with a focus on nutritional content.
Since then I have trained as competed as a sprinter, ran an ultra marathon, and helped thousands of people achieve their goals, both through my London client base and my 2 Meal Day Community.
I believe that the modern environment is taking us out of sync with our natural rhythms which is affecting our physical and mental health. I teach people how to incorporate methods that reset your body to its natural state, like sleep, movement, intermittent fasting, breathing, and cold-water therapy – all things I have incorporated into my own life.
With my experience in the corporate world, my real passion is helping busy, hard-working women reach and sustain their fat loss goals, boost their energy and transform their health, without restriction or deprivation.
