About Nick Eggleton, Senior Health Coach, Founder, Managing Director
Nick used to be very unhealthy marketing agency owner.
He was overweight as a result of years of poor habits in nutrition, exercise and lifestyle.
He drank a little, pretty much every night, ate everything he wanted, but always felt bloated. He snored and suffered sleep apnoea.
His skin and stamina were poor, he often felt lethargic, sometimes his memory would let him down. He was a stereotypical stressed and ‘moody’ businessman and the wrong side of 50.
What changed in Nick’s words.
“I regularly listened to podcasts (like Tim Ferriss / Joe Rogan) and occasionally one would discuss nutrition and I started to look at the idea of food differently. Not as an art form or to be unconsidered, but as something more scientific. More medical and mindful.
I became worried about developing age related illnesses as a consequence of my poor habits. Things like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and especially dementia.
As a ‘marketing guy’ and a huge sceptic, I also recognised marketing was part of the problem. I understood how I’d been programmed to ignore what my body was saying, and listen to the 'experts', sponsored by or maliciously influenced by the food and pharmaceutical industries.
For years food manufacturers have used marketing and lobbying to re-programme the way we as a society think, feel and believe in food and to economically direct us towards their profitability by changing and normalising behaviours that do not serve our health.
So, I began to listen, read, collect data, analyse and educate myself in order to plan a change.
I found and studied medical research articles on real scientific websites (PubMed) and read a lot of books on the subject.
Jane and I began to change our lifestyle, and have never felt healthier or been healthier.
I even managed to lose 37 Kilos in the process. Jane lost 20 Kilos.
The change was so dramatic I found people asking why, how, and to help them to do the same. I could bore people to death for hours on the science and answering questions.
I'm so passionate about the benefits that I wanted to share this opportunity with people like me and do it full-time.
So, I trained as a Health Coach and now support the implementation of healthy lifestyle habits for people, especially ones that run businesses and their staff, because I can relate to their challenges.
Especially those that have little time, lots of stress and the same worries I had about ageing, weight gain and living a longer healthy life by preventing illness, and are possibly concerned their bad habits could affect the lives of their children, and their children's children.”
“I’m no fitness freak or nutrition nerd. No woowoo wally. At heart I'm a lazy lard arse.
I love eating. But I find so called ‘healthy food’ bland. I like drinking. But alcohol is not nutritious.
I hate exercise. But I want to be healthy and fit without having to follow an exhaustive, time-consuming exercise programme.
Over the hundreds of hours of study and years of self experimentation, I've learned how to look healthy, feel healthy, live healthy and slow-down the ageing process and be physically the best my genes will allow. In the process cutting the risks to the most common causes of death: cancer dementia, diabetes and heart disease in the process.
I want you to experience these benefits as well.
By understanding, planning and committing to engaging in behaviours that promote your optimal gene expression.
My job as a health coach is to support you any way I can.”
