Sports nutrition consultancy
My current sports nutrition practice
I have my own sports nutrition consultancy practice. I give individual advice (cyclists, kayakers, runners, rugby players, soccer players, dancers, gymnasts), give presentations for teams and clubs, write articles, and advice companies.
My goals in sports nutrition
Become a world-class nutritionist. Work with and learn from the best experts in nutrition and related fields like coaching, exercise physiology and medicine. Work with inspiring athletes. Get my PhD in sports nutrition.
My own sporting background
Running. Middle distance until 2001: 1.52 on 800, 3.47 on 1500 after that I have moved to long distance and ran 1.06.17 on half marathon. Still need to complete my first marathon. I want to run sub 2.20 once in my life. I was assistant-coach in my running team when I was injured: time well spent!

Other things of interest about me
I like cooking. Not like in everyday, but like being quit the chef in the weekend. I live in a cute little house next to a beautiful forest and close to the beach. If you are in The Netherlands, you are invited for a long run!
