My name is Dr Suzy Jones and I have a PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Leicester, UK, and also ISSN Diploma in Applied Sports and Exercise Nutrition (dip.ISSN) and a Certified Sports Nutritionist under the International Society for Sports Nutrition (CISSN).

After losing over 50kgs (almost 8stone) from exercising (weights and cardio) and learning to cook. It has been difficult and painful at times, and everyday is a learning experience.

Since losing the weight I have run a Tough Mudder, swam open water competitions and completed my first half marathon.

I follow a whole foods plant based diet after reading “How Not To Die” by Dr Michael Greger. I love to travel, which can sometimes clash with healthier eating than fast food. Therefore, I am setting up this blog to help and give advice on how to eat more whole food/plant based at home and travelling (especially travelling), and try to be as evidence-based as possible.

I also am the nutrition advisor for the Elite Gothenburg Squash team and give advice on meal timing, supplements and pre/post competition nutrition.

Interesting astronomy news may also make a feature every now and again.
