  • " As a figure skater, I know that nutrition is important. Last summer I went to see the M2M Sports Nutritionist, Greg, so he could help me get ready for university. We looked at my daily meals, then we worked on meal planning. I realized I needed more protein. We talked about healthy food choices and we talked about budget. Then we went to the local grocery store and spent two hours going down each row. I learned how to read labels, choose fruits and veggies, look for deals and stay on budget. I've been away from home for 6 months now, and I am a really good shopper. I eat healthy food, and I know that I couldn't have done it without Greg! "
