Weight Loss Dietitian Sports nutritionist

lerouc's Photo lerouc 08 Mar 2016

I am looking for someone preferably in the Somerset West Area that can assist a guy with weight loss but also keep an eye on the fact that i do cycle a bit.

 

i have been to dietitians before but they have no idea what strain a 4hr+ ride is on my body.

 

Also i am not interested in someone that will make me climb on a scale check my length :ph34r: (height) and then tell me my BMI is OFF THE CHART and then give me a generic diet from a book which i could have downloaded from the internet and then just adjust the portion sizes.

 

I would prefer to get someone that actually cycles themselves.

Maybe even do some bloodtests or something to check for some irregularities or something like that.

If you don't come right in Somerset West, I'd recommend Adrian Penzhorn in Cape Town. Let me know if you want details.

I am working with a lady in Hurlingham who also works with performance athletes. She's not a registered dietician or nutritionist, but she has experience of working with athletes.

 

Currently our focus is mainly on losing weight and gaining strength, but also to get my nutrition right during the week and on rides (no more store bought energy bars for me... :mellow: ). Let me know if you want me to pass on her details...

Seeing that followup visits will be required i would really like someone closer to home. But i did google him a bit and he looks like exactly what i am looking for.
