About me

Tamar Aliphon

Professional Sport Nutritionist

I’m Tamar, a mum of one. I enjoy long hikes through the countryside and short walks to the fridge. I’m a passionate creative who before ‘this’ built a life around fashion and branding; working as a stylist, writer, content creator, and marketing asset designer. These days I’m more devoted to building strength in the gym and competing as a powerlifter. Frequently found with my nose in a psychology book. Always fantasising about my next travel adventure. Oh, and I’m an accredited Professional Sports Nutritionist.

My story

I am actually YOU… 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 6 months ago. Yep. I have put my body through pretty much all of it. I have been overweight and underweight. I have been pregnant. I have excessively restricted my food intake and I have binged. Scale obsessed. I have suffered body dysmorphia and self loathing. Weight Watchers, Slimming World, Atkins, Dukan, Cabbage Soup (one of the worse ones), Avocado, High Fat, Low Carb, I was a mess… you name a diet, I’ve been there and got a stretch mark to prove it. In my crazy, loud, multi-cultural family the kitchen and the meals that come out of it are the heart and soul of us. I LOVE food but so many times I managed to suck the joy from eating it by serving up a side order of guilt.

A few years ago life ground to a halt when I was struck with various auto-immune illnesses, fibromyalgia and CFS. The outlook from health professionals was bleak. Desperate to get some semblance of a life back I began to read and research the healing powers of food, vitamins and minerals. I embarked on my first general nutrition course, used homeopathy, and gradually my health began to improve. Determined to put my new-found energy to good use, at the age of 31 I nervously stepped into a gym and had my first strength training PT session (it is never too late to start). I absolutely fell in love with powerlifting and 2 years later I was competing on the British platform alongside some of the strongest athletes this country has produced to date. There was a shift in my focus from how I looked, to how good I could feel and what my body could do! I was on the pathway to where I am today; at peace with my body, uninterested with the extremes, happily nourished, unrestricted and focussed on fuelling my busy lifestyle.

 

Naturally, I was driven to improve and learn more so I qualified for an Accredited Diploma in Professional Sport Nutrition and started sharing what I had learned with family and friends. This passion became a career. Now it is my pleasure to teach you how to enjoy a flexible approach to nutrition by combining scientifically backed and proven facts, with simple, healthy lifestyle changes.
