Found an ideal nutritionist

I think I have found someone who can guide me back to gainz! My weights have been suffering badly over the last 12 mths. Slipping slowly away. Going from 6 days in the gym since 2010, to barely 3 days and half arsed effort. I actually cried a few times just stepping foot inside the door. 

Now, knowing I am Coeliac, and realising the extent of the damage, I can move forward to regaining energy and strength. Or, at least I can try. I have not put on weight for over 5 years and I am struggling to maintain what little muscle I have left. 

Anyway, Perry is a veteran bodybuilding coach, has a post grad degree in nutrition and is an ex-mechanic! Fingers crossed he can help me manage my macros and nutrients so I am not spending more time eating than sleeping. 

I REALLY want to do 10 full, great form pull ups, a 2x my body weight deadlift and reach 100kg on the squats. Plus, I want my energy to last the whole day. I crash at about 6 pm. Some days, I get light headed and can barely stand up. 

One step at a time. I'll give Perry 6 mths to help and I'll reassess.

Congratulations!  I hope it works out well.

Just know that you have been sick.  Be patient.  Give it a year. I know you want to recover quickly, but it really does take time.  A year goes by fast.  Believe me, I am a very active almost 60 year old.   I suffered from vertebrae fractures two months after my celiac disease diagnosis doing NOTHING.  Unfortunately, one of my hidden symptoms was osteoporosis.  My known symptom was anemia which could cause heart failure if not addressed (or normal).  Make sure your doctor says it is safe.  

Maybe I should start training again for triathlons.  ??‍♀️??‍♀️?‍♀️  My chances of placing are much better at my age!  ?
