Good nutrition is an essential element of any successful health and ﬁtness programme and the cornerstone to maintaining vitality, immunity, physical and mental performance.
Paying attention to your nutrition can radically transform your energy levels, mindset, assist your training performance and help you achieve the body you want, inside and out. That is why at Blueprint we place as much emphasis on nutrition and diet as we do on training.
Our team based in Tiverton, Devon includes a certified and insured nutritional therapist who holds specialist qualiﬁcations for personal training in nutrition for healthy living and sports.
As with all aspects of our service we consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size ﬁts all’ approach. Everyone who signs up to personal training sessions or packages will have the opportunity to look at their nutrition and we frequently use the following:*Food diary analysis
We don’t suggest fad diets or fashionable trends and prefer to focus on sound and healthy advice which gets results both in terms of a healthy physique and overall health and disease prevention.
You may know what you should be eating but need help making the changes and sticking to them. Or you may think there is room for improvement in the quality of your diet . Many symptoms of ill health, including low energy, problem skin and digestive problems are your body’s way of telling you that something you are doing isn’t working. The starting point is to look at what you are eating"and how it might be affecting you.
After analysis of your health history, current health status and eating habits, we can make recommendations about changes you can make to your nutrition to help improve your overall health, well-being, performance and body composition. We can provide advice on nutrition based on a sound and well researched scientiﬁc basis. We can help break bad habits and work with you to develop meal plans that you will be able to implement and stick to. With proper nutrition you can expect to see improvements in digestion, energy levels, skin conditions, moods, headaches and body composition.
Whether you are looking to lose a few pounds or need to signiﬁcantly reduce your BMI for health we can work with you to create an effective nutrition plan. We know that losing weight can be difﬁcult and that a person’s relationship with food can be very complex. That is why we don't believe in one size ﬁts all meal plans, or in very restrictive diets that are destined for failure. Often clients end up eating more than they were before - it’s just more of the right foods and less of those that harm.
We will sit with you and spend time understanding why it is that you are overweight and design a plan that delivers complete and balanced nutrition, that will work with your lifestyle to support natural and permanent weight loss and body fat reduction.
Weekend warriors, casual exercisers, competitive athletes can all see beneﬁts in performance when following a properly planned diet. Knowing what to eat before and after exercising, what supplements may support you when training, how to lose weight while preserving muscle and how to fuel for an endurance event can make a signiﬁcant impact on both the effectiveness of your training and the results you see when it matters most on competition day.
We have worked with individuals preparing for their ﬁrst marathon, those trying to drop body fat while maintaining energy and muscle, and people wanting to reduce DOMS (muscle soreness after exercising) by producing detailed and carefully planned meal and supplement programmes to maximise performance.
By working to optimise nutrition most of our clients report improvements to energy levels, mood, concentration, digestion, sleep, skin, and body fat within about 4 weeks. Clients who take their nutrition as seriously as their training will reap the beneﬁts.
Our nutritional advice is never given as a replacement for medical advice and we will always suggest you discuss any medical issues with a medical professional.
