It is with gleaming excitement that I welcome onboard Dr Rachel Brown. Actually Rachel gave me her commitment back before Christmas - where has time gone!

Who you might ask is....   Dr Rachel Brown Yes we officially have someone with Dr in front of their name on the team)
is a lecturer and sports nutritionist at the University of Otago. She has worked with individuals and groups with the goal of improving nutritional status and thereby influencing health, physical performance, and well-being.

Rachel sounds like his type of person when she first told me I would be able to eat anything and preferably the fattier the better and it wasn't a bad thing carrying a bit of extra weight - somehow I think that's not exactly what she said but it sounds good.

Not just here for her pretty face, Rachel has extensively researched the influence of diet on health, sports performance, body composition and energy regulation. Her expertise has been sought by some of New Zealand's top athletes. She has designed nutrition plans for the successful New Zealand crews in the Trans-Atlantic Rowing Challenge, America's Cup Yachtsmen, and Olympic Athletes.

More in depth profile coming in our new upgraded site - coming soonish....
