In August 2019, my fascination in nutrition and the fact that 80% of weight loss is diet related, has lead me to begin studying a Post Graduate Diploma in Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
This is a Science to Practice online programme with the Institute of Performance Nutrition (IOPN) and is accredited by the British Dietetic Association (BDA), The Association For Nutrition (AfN) and The American College Of Sport’s Medicine (ACSM).
