Each and every person has a specific lifestyle with particular eating habits, level of physical activity, body composition and, last but not least, their own MIND. For some people sticking to a “diet” can be an ongoing battle, but once you have a tailor-made eating plan designed to fit your precise needs, and you can really FEEL the difference after following it for a while. You will even find it very difficult to look back.
Whether you have to eat to exercise or exercise to eat, Tamaryn Jarvis is able to give you expert dietary advice and personal meal plans to assist you in disease prevention, management of various health conditions and diseases, weight management, and eating for sustained energy and optimal performance.
