What clients say about me
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.
Tom Evans (Team GB / RedBull Ultra Running Athlete)
Laurent has been instrumental in getting players to make nutrition changes to put them in the best possible position to attain & maintain optimal performance. Laurent also played a key role in injury rehab strategies which helped players greatly.
