Tim Noakes Shares His Diet Tricks for Success At The Office
Change your diet into jet fuel and become a boss at work and life with SA’s leading sports scientist
Many of us are unhealthy because we eat on the run, with diets governed by what we can grab. This affects our daily functioning, making us sluggish and unable to perform at our best.
The worst part of this is that some of us don’t even know it.
Professor Tim Noakes, the world-renowned SA sports scientist, is on a mission to change this by reviewing the busy person’s daily routine, refreshing their mindset on food, and revamping their on-the-go diet.
He’ll be doing this with a talk and masterclass on 28 and 29 March at Workshop17 Watershed at the Waterfront, accompanied by keto treats and low-carb classics.
SESSION 1: WORK. LIFE. NUTRITION 28 MARCH
Noakes, recently vindicated on accusations of advising someone via social media without examination, starts his mission with a keynote talk on Thursday 28 March. He’ll relay some anecdotes about his experiences over the past five years, and outline his latest thinking on the threat that decades of misleading nutritional guidelines have wrought on society. The session will close off with a Q&A to get into the details.
SESSION 2: TIM NOAKES MASTERCLASS 29 MARCH
The next morning’s Masterclass is an interactive experience where attendees will examine their daily habits and routines. This will help them better understand where food sits in their current daily lives, and help them in resetting their nutritional paths for optimal performance. Guests will then assess each other's diets, and design meal plans for one another to improve their performance and wellness in the modern, fast-paced world.
