Introducing Renee McGregor

Renee is a leading Sports and Eating disorder specialist dietitian with 20 years of experience working in clinical and performance nutrition. She's worked with athletes across the globe, including supporting Olympic (London, 2012), Paralympic (Rio, 2016) and Commonwealth (Queensland, 2018) teams. Renee is also the Nutrition Lead for English and Scottish National Ballet, providing nutritional and clinical guidance for both performance and health.

She is particularly passionate about female athletes and their health, regularly providing expert commentary on understanding how the body works, optimising hormonal health and how this impacts our performance. She is regularly asked to work directly with high performing and professional athletes that have developed a dysfunctional relationship with food that is impacting their performance, health and career.

Renee is also a best-selling author of 5 books including: Training Food and Orthorexia, When Health Eating Goes Bad and her new book, More Fuel You which was out June 2022 and has already sold out of its first print run. She writes a monthly column for Runners World and is often asked to comment and provide technical support on documentaries, news and media. She was the Clinical Advisor for the BBC documentary, Freddie Flintoff: Living with Bulimia.

The outdoors is where Renee feels most alive. As someone who comes from an ethnic minority background and struggled with racism as a young girl while she grew up in an urban area, she found her escapism in sport. She had her first trip to the countryside when she was 11 years old and has been hooked ever since. When not inspiring others with her incredible work, Renee can be found running in the mountains and chasing trails, most likely training for a crazy ultra-marathon. Last year (2022) she became British Trail Running Champion in her age group over the short course and 3rd female at the Spine Sprint. She recently returned from racing in Upper Mustang, Nepal where she placed 4th female.
