Matt Perry, 40

 

Matt Perry, 40, from Kent was looking to lose weight and improve his energy levels when he took the YorkTest food intolerance test in May 2014. He was also having trouble sleeping which was affecting his ability to focus on everyday tasks.

Matt’s test revealed some surprising and unexpected reactions to wheat, yeast, gluten, soya, milk, egg white & yolk, crustacean mix, lentils, peanuts, mustard seed, grape.  Faced with such a large list, he was understandably daunted.

"When I first got my results I was at first shocked that my staple food groups were the things I was intolerant to. I thought ok, I should be able to get around it and then I started to look at ingredients and that's when it sunk in how much I would have to change... Simple things like a sandwich, being that I can't have wheat, yeast, gluten or soya made this a challenge." 

Guided by his consultation with Nutritional Therapist Sarah, Matt felt he had the support needed to make some big changes to his diet. It didn’t take long for him to feel the benefits. 

"Nearly 5 weeks on and I feel amazing. I have lost over an inch from my waist and lost 17lbs in weight. I go to sleep almost instantly rather than staring at the ceiling. My energy levels through the day are higher; I am more focused and clear headed. Also in my first triathlon of the season I knocked 17 minutes off my time from last year... A simple test and re-education on your eating habits can turn your life around."
