It’s time to change your life!

Congratulations on taking the next step. We are here to show you how easy real food living and performance can be.

Our foundation is in whole foods with a unique lower carbohydrate, higher fat (LCHF) and just eat real food (JERF) approach.

We can teach you how to develop metabolic efficiency for everything from fat loss to qualifying for Kona or the top level of your chosen sport. We have worked with thousands of individuals since 2011 and have built the greatest number of fat adapted athletes worldwide.

We have a number of program options, which you can find out more about below, and access individually from the drop down menu. Please browse the selection and if you need help deciding which option is best for you, we’d love to help. You can book your complimentary 15 minute consultation here or drop us a line here.

TNN Testimonials - Ross Kinsella, APA titled Sports Physiotherapist, Age group long course triathlete and marathoner.
Through one on one ongoing education with Steph Lowe and through my own research I now have the knowledge to understand that each meal needs to be based around protein and good fats to gain satiety. I am now gluten free, dairy free and sugar free as much as possible and I have never felt better. Through eating natural and wholesome food I feel in control of my training and life as a Sports Physiotherapist. Thanks TNN!

TNN Testimonials - Bernadette Robinson, Age group long course triathlete
Thank you for all your help and guidance in helping me become an endurance athlete. With your nutrition tips I am eating much healthier and training for longer, and have now completed my first two long course triathlons and a 170km ride. Your book “The Real Food Athlete” has been an invaluable source of information and I am now making my own energy bars and gels from memory as I have made the recipes up so many times. I feel confident that I am well on my way to achieve my goal of becoming an Ironman this year. Thank you!

TNN Testimonials - Catherine O’Loughlin, Marathon runner
Thank you so much for your support and help with getting my legs over the line I’m proud to be able to say I’m a New York Marathon Finisher! I managed it in 4:11hrs which I’m pretty happy with considering I climbed 5 x bridges & jostled amongst 50,000 people trying to achieve the same thing. I felt fantastic for the entire duration and never once hit a low point, which I am shocked about. It’s amazing how good nutrition and preparation carries you through!
