Today I had a consultation with Ian Collins, the director of Evelyn Faye Nutrition. He was easy to talk to and we discussed a lot of things, including the results of my gene test, how I'm eating at the moment and what exercise I do. This is what I came away with:
- my current weight training program is well suited to my genetic profile
- increasing the pace of my walking will help with my cardiovascular health and weight loss
- my diet and water intake are good, but he'd like to see me eat more at dinner and before bed (that is, avoid going hungry), and include more fruit in my diet. He also suggested taking Glisodin, to help stimulate my body's defence against free radicals.
- the protein powders and B-vitamins I use are good, so to continue with those
- he suggested switching my preworkout drink to Combust as it is better suited to my genetic profile and goals (and it's cheaper than what I have been having - bonus!)
- he suggested including calcium and magnesium, because I'm not eating much dairy (it doesn't agree with me) and I sometimes get cramps in my calves

So I will do measures over the weekend, then implement the changes and see how I go.

In other exciting news, I have a job interview on Tuesday morning.

Ian's a genuine soul who's happy to help anyone who needs it. You couldn't meet a nicer guy. Ian & Lawrey have helped me immensely over the past couple of years and it's obviously done me wonders.

With these changes you'll no doubt be feeling ever better then you have before. Your goal is yet another step closer Charlotte. :o) xxx
