Do you want a body like Eva Mendes or David Beckham but don't know how?

Has common place advice on nutrition and health failed you?

Have you managed to lose weight but you felt deprived and didn't feel good doing so or… even worse, you put the weight back on afterwards?

It can be depressing… but we, Mac-Nutrition, are here to help! We are an expert nutrition consultancy based in the UK and we have helped hundreds of clients lose weight, get healthier and more importantly stay that way! We know what we are talking about which is why our client list ranges from celebrities, to football clubs and olympic athletes but we are here to help YOU!

We are really excited to be announcing our 2nd European talk. We have decided to hold our next talks in Malta, as this is a country we feel could really benefit from receiving a more up to date perspective on nutrition and exercise, which would help make real a difference outside of our immediate geographical market. Our top speakers Martin MacDonald (Clincial Peformance Nutritionist) and Christian Vassallo's (Exercise Specialist) knowledge, teaching and tips are a completely revolutionary to current media messages on health & diet given in Malta so make sure you reserve your seat to this exclusive event now! Their advice will be the most up to date nutritional science in a very easy to understand and, most importantly, practical manner… so fast track your way not only to beach ready body, but an improved body for your long-term health.

Session 1 – What is it and who is this for?

nutrition and sport venueSession 1 will be pitched at a level that will make it suitable for anyone interested in health, nutrition and exercise. The content will be funny, interactive and most of all challenge much of the mainstream dogma and misinformation around nutrition. No matter what your interest or level, you will learn something that is applicable to your health and fitness that you can take away and apply on a daily basis.

Session 2 – What is it and who is this for?

This session is a more intimate session with only 40 tickets available. It is for those individuals who want to learn how they can use nutrition and exercise to improve their body (and indirectly, their health). This session will have a much more practical focus and will teach attendees more specific nutritional techniques they can use to achieve their goals.
