Ever wanted to know if you are eating enough protein for muscle synthesis? Or consuming enough carbohydrates to support glycogen stores to support a high-intensity training session? Or enough B12 to support mental health? Or enough iron to avoid anaemia?
This is a great service to have a four day nutrition intake analysed with a report provided to you. The analysis will be reviewed from a holistic perspective in addition to assessing your macronutrients and micronutrients. A holistic analysis takes into consideration it’s not simply about numbers!
