Bob provided me with the tools to find what foods made me perform at my highest levels. All the bad habits I thought were normal for athletes went away and he helped heal my gut. Instead of fearing GI distress episodes during my runs, I knew exactly what to eat and when to eat ahead of time and during workouts. My confidence in training and competing returned.



I never thought I would get rid of my runners trots but Bob's nutrition strategies help my gut heal itself and I'm proud to say I don't have to look for bathrooms during my training runs anymore!



I thought my bloating was because of my menstrual cycle but with Bob's help, I was able to determine the underlying nutrition cause and fix my bloating issues. Now, I am symptom-free and training better than ever!
