With an impressive career spanning over 35 years in sports nutrition, Don currently holds the position of The Nutrition X Consultancy’s Head Nutritionist, as well as Emeritus Professor of Sports Nutrition at Liverpool John Moores University. Research-active since 1980 in the fields of carbohydrate and fat metabolism, nutritional supplements and applied aspects of sports/performance nutrition, Don was also chair of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences ‘Sports Nutrition Interest Group’ and a member of the working party on sports nutrition accreditation; a joint initiative between BASES, Nutrition Society, the BOA and dietitians.
