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 the Nutrition Lead for English and Scottish National Ballet, providing nutritional and clinical guidance for both performance and health; Ultra X and also one of the Team Managers for The GB 24-Hour Team. She provides support to big organisations including The North Face and Asics, ensuring athletes and ambassadors understand the importance of nutrition in order to optimise 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. On top of this Renee is the founder of Team Renee McGregor, managing a team of practitioners, specialising in supporting individuals and athletes of all levels and ages, coaches, and sports science teams to provide nutritional strategies to enhance sports performance and manage eating disorders. This is reflected in her work on social media too, priding herself on proving an educational hub for both the professional and everyday athlete.
Renee is also a best-selling author of five books including Training Food and Orthorexia, When Healthy 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.
When not inspiring others with her incredible work, Renee can be found running the mountains and chasing the trails, most likely training for a crazy ultra-marathon. She recently became British Trail Running Champion in her age group over the short course and third female at The Spine Sprint.
