Nutrition Consultant Gareth Edwards has won three
sporting National Championship titles. In 2006 he was
approached by Elite UK sailor Paul Brotherton to help
loose unwanted weight and regain physical performance.
The programme was effective. (6 Kilo weight loss and
remarkable increase of strength and endurance).
Paul then became the coach for the world conquering
Yngling girl’s crew at the 2008 Olympic Games.
He used some of the principals he’d employed to
achieve his own turnaround to help his team keep down
to weight while maintaining peak physical performance.
These are his words:
"You don't need to spend too much time with Gareth
to see that food is a total passion for him and as one
of the fittest looking and best preserved people I know
there is not much of an argument about the benefits.
I dipped my toe into the world of eating correctly and
accurately and was genuinely amazed at the energy and
ability to recover from exercise. It was not difficult
to pass on the basic ethos of his message to my athletes
and to support them through the first few difficult
days of the transition. The eating patterns that we
established early in 2007 where a substantial part of
the success that followed. I would recommend Gareth
as a determined, passionate and committed nutritionist.
Anyone who takes ultimate performance seriously would
be well served to knock on his door."

note that Dave Scott, five times winner of the Hawaii
