My name is Sharmain; a registered Sport Dietitian with a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Post Graduate Diploma in Sport Exercise Nutrition from the well recognised International Olympic Committee (IOC).
I have over 8 years of experience; which includes (NHS) clinical nutrition; working within specialist areas such as weight management, gastroenterology (the gut to you and I), oncology, hepatology and stroke rehabilitation to name just a few.
I was also the Lead Nutritionist with Bath Rugby Union during the 2008/9 and 2009/2010 seasons. Here I gained a better understanding into the professional world of elite sport, and specifically the challenges that athletes face when trying to achieve the right nutrition for their goals. Following this, I worked with London based rugby team Harlequins where I continued to help players to meet their body composition goals, support their recovery and more importantly improve their performance.
After four rewarding years within the NHS, I moved into a commercial career with Maxinutrition (aka Maximuscle owned by GlaxoSmithKline). Here, I had the chance to broaden my knowledge into the world of nutritional supplements; their use, their development and more importantly the science in which they are based upon. Responsible for supporting the marketing team by providing accurate sports nutrition messages, content and product usage recommendations. I also represented the company as the Nutrition Expert presenting to and writing for media publications such as Cosmopolitan, Mens Health, The Times, Daily Star, Perfect Wedding, The Metro and many more. I have been lucky enough to work with celebrities, elite athletes and budding weekend warriors alike, more recently so as Expert Sport Dietitian at the GSK Human Performance Lab.
