About Me

 

Hi my name is Jennifer Moulin and I am a degree qualified Clinical Nutritionist with a particular interest in gastrointestinal complaints and sports nutrition.

 

My Qualifications

 

  • Bachelor of Health Science in Nutritional Medicine from Endeavour College of Natural Health

  • Cert IV Personal Trainer

  • Cert III Exercise Instructor

  • Experienced Food Coach

 

I am registered with the Australian Natural Therapies Association (ANTA) and Fitness Australia.

 

My Philosophy

 

My programs are designed to suit individual lifestyles and needs in order to get back to good health and stay there by setting realistic goals. Simple changes in nutrition can make major changes to overall health, sports performance and wellbeing.

 

My Journey

 

I have not always eaten well. In my 20’s as a graduate and working my way up the career ladder I often skipped meals or made rushed unhealthy choices due to convenience and hunger. I gained weight and felt tired and stressed much of the time.

 

I feel that my poor nutrition led to my fertility issues, PCOS diagnosis and difficulty pregnancies. Having my two children had a profound effect on my attitude towards nutrition and healthy eating. Being responsible for these precious humans and what I put on their plate made me acutely aware of how their health was in my hands.

 

I began to read extensively about nutrition and the role it can play on health and development. I learnt how to cook healthy and nutritious meals (my Spanish mother-in-law was a huge help in this). Having two small children and a part time job I learned how to make cooking healthy meals quick and easy.

 

Eventually I realised that I wanted to help other people with their nutrition and began my journey back into tertiary education, gaining my degree in Nutritional Medicine.

 

When it comes to fitness I have always loved sports, mostly team sports such as soccer and field hockey but I also enjoy tennis and running.

 

In 2007 when my husband announced he was going to enter a 100km trail run in the Blue Mountains I thought he was crazy. That was just the beginning. He has now completed many Ultra's and I have spent a lot of time researching and working with him in putting together nutrition plans that would alleviate his gut issues and leg cramps that often hindered his performance on race day.

 

I now work with other athletes to optimise their performance by ensuring they have the right nutrition plans for them both during the event and day to day.

 

Trail running is now my favourite way to exercise and get outdoors. I have run many of the shorter distance races including Running Wild and Sydney Trail Series courses as well as the Buffalo Stampede 22km and the Wild Endurance 50km. My challenge for 2016 is the Mount Blanc half marathon in France.
