Yvoni Kyriakidou ~ Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist, BSc, MSc, ANutr
I am passionate about helping athletes and people from general population of all ages to achieve their personal nutritional goals.
I come from a basketball background over 14 years competing in Greek and British Leagues, where my versatile approach and experience in sports has lead me to work with a wide range of athletes. As a basketball athlete, I have overcome many physical challenges which I use to motivate others to reach their personal goals.
My passion remains wellness, sports and health promotion through a mind-body approach to nutrition.
7-day diet plans are constructed based on the individual, taking into account their diet, lifestyle, environment and many other factors.
