Dr Laurent Bannock

Performance Nutritionist, Scientist, and Educator in London, UK

I am a nutritionist specialising in elite health and performance. I am also an educator, and scientist based both in London and Norfolk, in the UK.

As a practitioner, with over 27 years experience, I specialise in supporting elite performance through my work with individual athletes and teams (ranging from tennis, boxing, MMA, rugby, & football to triathlon and ultra endurance), and consultancy to numerous elite professional sports teams. Recent notable roles have included supporting GB Fencing for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, and the Egyptian national football team for the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia.

As an educator I develop and support elite sports nutrition practitioners as the founder & CEO of the world renowned Guru Performance Institute, and am the host of the award winning "We Do Science" Podcast. I also speak regularly at international sports nutrition conferences.

What clients say about me
See him, listen to him, try it… I really feel I’m back there with my energy levels, that I can achieve most days what I accomplished in my 20s.

Dr Bannock was our Nutritionist for the FIFA 2018 World Cup. His influence and impact was priceless. Ramadan, travel between six countries, yet best performance & least number of injuries in our history. I recommend him as a Nutritionist of the highest calibre.
Dr Mahmoud Aboul Ela (Team Doctor, Egypt National Football A Team)
Laurent has opened my eyes. Ultra running requires high training volume & with his help I’m able to recover fully & prep for the next session with nutrition plans that are achievable home & away. I’m in much better shape & looking forward to carrying on.
