To most people, understanding nutrition is only slightly less confusing than understanding Einstein's theory of relativity. A new book or article comes out weekly about the latest greatest way of eating. What My Nutrition concerns itself with is finding you not only a sound nutrition plan to follow, which will be effective, but also a foundational understanding of nutrition with the goal of incorporating this into your lifestyle.
Your body is the product of nutrition. The importance of nutrition in attaining body health can never be over-emphasized. What you eat will determine how often you fall sick, how obese you become, how physically fit you are, how long you will live and a host of other vital factors.

Hey David…..A big thank you for the new me! I started boot camp in January over the next couple of months I went from being 11stone and a big size 14 down to 8 stone 10lbs and a small size 10.I had a gym membership but didn’t seem to shift the weight as I didn’t know what I was doing, joining boot camp was the best decision I’ve ever made, not just the weight loss but my fitness level is through the roof. It’s not about crazy dieting and excessive exercise, it’s about a healthy balance and a fun routine.Thanks Candace Wood - Lost 2st 4lbs & 2 dress sizes!
I have just weighed myself after my first week of FitCamp, it was been really hard but after seeing the amazing results in my pictures I weighed myself and I've lost an amazing 16lb. I'm amazed and it's motivated me to work a lot harder. I can't believe I've lost a stone and 2lbs in a week it's incredible all I can say is thanks very much – Aaron Leonard, lost 16lbs on his first week training!
5 weeks of x1 zumba class & x1 fitcamp session every week plus Davids' diet plan and I've lost 1st 2lbs & had loads of fun! Emma Hope, Low Fell, lost 1st 2lbs in 5 weeks
I never ever thought that I would be able to feel good again, until, Fitcamp was suggested!
I felt sick at the thought that everyone would be fitter than me and that I wouldn’t be able to do it, I proved myself wrong! It’s the BEST thing I’ve ever done.... Green tea is now my daily drink; I’ve ditched the coffee with milk and sugar and stuck to the foods on David's diet list... By doing this I lost a staggering 9lbs in my first week.
The first session at fitcamp was painful, but I managed it, although I suffered for 3 days after, I felt amazing knowing I could actually keep up.. (just lol) I tried out a few of David’s exercises at home and found them easy to fit into my day. The second week I lost 4 lb....I wake up refreshed, I have more energy, my kids don’t get it in the neck now (lol) as am not as tired, and that’s after only a few weeks.
I do have a long way to go, but if you believe in yourself and have the right person to help steer you on what to eat and the right exercises, you’re nearly there... be positive, and try it, Fitcamp does rock!!! If I can do it, anyone can!!! I’ve struggled for 10 years with weight going up and down, now its David and BodyFX all the way! Try it you’ll be amazed!!!
My family and friends have noticed and my clothes are loose, it isn’t an instant fix, but hard work and determination will pay off and you will see results if you follow David's diet and also feel healthier. I’m hoping to have lost a couple more pounds when I weigh myself on Monday and also hoping to lose some more inches, but 13lbs in just over 2 weeks is great!
Good luck to all that try and do with the diet plan together with the session, it really does work! Cheryl Donaldson
Cheryl went on to lose 24lbs over the 5 week course and won the Biggest Loser Competition!
Jess Kevan lost 22cms, 1/2 stone of body fat and reduced her body % by a massive 12% in only 4 weeks!
Her sister Rachel dropped a dress size in the first 3 weeks!!!
Emma Reay lost 13.5cms and reduced her body fat by 8%!
Week 3/ Fitcamp #5 – Hi David, I put my skinny jeans on today where there's usually a stone of fat spilling over the top, and guess what??? They went on fine. Can’t bloody believe it. You are a genius. And we've still got loads of weeks left. Oh I’m gonna look hot by Xmas! Now lost 8lbs! plus 4 inches off waist & 2 inches off hips and 1.5 inches off thighs - In 3 weeks!!!Week 5 - I lost 15lbs, over a stone!
Week 3/Course 2 - I've lost 24lbs, nearly 2 stone!!! - Kirsty Bagnall
I hadn’t done any real exercise in ages! I have tried diets but they don’t work. I Saw Davids’ bootcamp and at first thought that it was going to be completely out of my league, but after speaking to David he encouraged me to give it a go. It was the best thing ever! After the 1st five weeks I have lost 4 inches from my waist and 7lbs!I felt so much better I have rejoined and have now lost nearly 2 stone/28lbs, plus I've had so many great compliments about my new body! I feel so much better for it! David is a great instructor! Thanks David.Amanda Thornton (age 38) - Lost 2 stone & 38cms & 3 dress sizes!
Just want to say a big big thanks for the last five weeks of fitcamp. The 5 week course has been excellent and showed big results, started out weighing 13st 13lbs, now at 12st 11lbs - total result! Looking forward to the next fitcamp
(glutton for punishment ha ha, it does get a little easier?) Once again big thanks - Michael Hunter Lost 1st 2lbs/16lbs!
Kim Hughs lost over a stone in 4 weeks!
Hiya David, just sending you a happy message because I am so happy! During my pregnancy I gained ALOT of weight I went up to 13st on the dot! Through my dance work and performing I lost 2 and a half stone, but was still having to wear size 12-14 tops instead of my pre-pregnancy size 8 ones - BUT since doing your bootcamps (it would have been even more if I’d stuck to the diet) I've toned up loads and today I tried on a size 8 top and it fit perfectly again!!! I couldn’t believe it man!! It’s been nearly 3 years since I've fit back into a size 8..I mean I could fit in them b4 but would hang out everywhere lol
So just wanna say thank you! It’s gave me a real buzz today! Hopefully I will lose a bit more weight with this next bootcamp and reach my target weight! Natasha ‘Cullen’ Mcintyre
I joined David's BODYfx Fittcamp 5 weeks ago as I'd had such good results from my Personal Training programmes with David and was keen to try something new and challenge myself, and I knew it would be effective. I also had some holiday weight to shift (as Greek food is no good for the hips!) ahead of another holiday 8 weeks later.
I have just completed my first 5 week Fitcamp and feel fitter, slimmer and much more body confident - i have received comments from friends and family on how much slimmer and toned I look, which is nice to hear.
The Fitcamp excercises change every week and I look forward to every session, to challenge myself and learn new techniques. It's nice to be part of a group too, where you can share results and motivate each other. I really enjoy exercising outdoors too - something I'd never done before.
My fitness levels have improved and taking 3 flights of stairs to my office every day is much easier, as well as training in the gym.
The diet advice and home workouts are really effective too, especially if you don't have time to go to a gym.
I was so impressed with the change in my body that i've signed up for the next bootcamp, as i got the results i wanted! Stephanie Thomson - Lost 7lbs and a dress size!
I joined BodyFx bootcamp as I was struggling to shift my 'baby belly'. I had been attending my local gym but still no results. I struggle with diets also, so this was ideal for me. I attended the bootcamp and also followed Davids diet and I lost a great 7lb. I was so exstatic that I signed up for the next bootcamp course! For that post baby weight I recommend this bootcamp as a must!! Emma Meddings Parker - Lost 1st/14lbs!
In the past I've done aerobic classes regularly, usually 2-3 times per week. I've done endless repetitions and variations of crunches and haven't got the results I've noticed after twice a week for 5 weeks of Bodyfx Bootcamp. David's routines work on your core muscles and as a result I've lost 2 inches from my waist! The routines are hard but achievable for people of all levels of fitness. If you're thinking of trying Bootcamp, I would recommend you give it a try! Sheila Wight - Lost over 5cms from waist!
I joined the bootcamp course 4 months after giving birth to try and get back my pre-pregnancy body and I can honestly say that after 4 weeks I can notice the difference. My partner actually thinks I look better than before I was pregnant! The sessions are challenging and fun, I can feel the difference hours after, I have more energy for the rest of the day, and I can feel that my muscles have actually done something, they don’t ache they just have a presence! I think having the class outdoors is lovely and you don’t need music to motivate you. Highly recommended! Lucy Trenbirth, UK
Mont Blanc Bootcamps...what a great way to shape up for summer in a team environment! I look forward immensely to our twice weekly sessions and have reaped the benefits. David keeps it interesting and rarely do we do the same exercise twice. I'll be back for round two! Jonathan Keightley, New Zealander (age 34)
The main reason I like Body Fx Bootcamps is that all the exercises are acheivable and challenging regardless of your age or fitness level. Each session is fun with a down to earth with a really friendly atmosphere, yet David still motivates us to push ourselves that little bit extra. Dawn Stanley
I joined the BodyFX bootcamp in Chamonix, France with a few friends as I was getting married on the beach 6 week later and we all wanted to get bikini fit! Davids’ classes are brilliant! Each class is fun and different and you can really feel your muscles working! We all had a great time and still got a really good workout! I didn’t think I’d see such great results after only 6 weeks! I forgot to take my measurements at the start, but can notice I’ve toned up so much and have loads more energy!
I’d recommend BodyFX bootcamps to everyone and have already signed up for the next bootcamp course! Sharon Gavin, Dublin, Ireland (27)
To anyone considering doing Davids Bootcamp I have this to say on the matter - DO IT!
I was apprehensive at first as I really dislike traditional exercise but even on my first session realised that I was going to really enjoy it and reap great benefits from it.
I am a barman in a ski resort and work late nights but found that no matter how hard it was going to be to get up in the morning that I looked forward to the session and felt great, albeit it tired, after.
It gave me the incentive to lose weight and to watch what I ate and it gave me a core strength I was lacking and more over that it pointed out that I was missing that core strength.
I thank David and Bootcamp, he will be missed but I look forward to his return. Chris Wensak (age 35) UK
As a naturally lazy person, I really did not want to do bootcamp, but saw the necessity in improving my body for the summer. However, I have been pleasantly surprised at the suitability of it for all fitness levels, the great sociability factor and how much better I feel - there is even an outside chance of a small muscle emerging in the six pack region! I would highly recommend Davids’ bootcamps and his approach. Barbara Falkiner, Zimbabwean (age 40)
WOW! I wasn’t sure this would be the sort of workout for me but after only one session - very addictive. Brilliant way to start the day, allows you to push hard physically through varied exercise positions and progress at your own natural ability. If you have the chance, get involved especially in the beautiful surroundings of the Chamonix Valley. Cheers Dave loved every minute. Steve Philip (age 37)
I joined the BodyFX bootcamps to jump start my training for a race I was doing. Not only am I ready for my race now, but Davids’ classes motivated me to get back in shape after having kids! What I love the most is David always keeps it interesting, challenging and fun! Vanessa Carrington, American (age 37)
I've now been to BodyFX bootcamp in blistering sun, torrential rain and gale force winds...why? Why me and over 20 other keen bootcampers...well I can’t answer for them all, but for me bootcamp is a great way to learn new exercises, feel muscles I didn’t know I had ache for days that follow, meet new people and just have a laugh. David has a great witty/’army’ style to his bootcamp sessions. He explains all the exercises very clearly, even I, someone with zero co-ordination has managed all but the dreaded ‘wolf-walks’!
So have I enjoyed the bootcamp course?...well I didn’t hesitate to sign up for the next one...along with all the other bootcampers!!! Holly Bean, UK (age 22)
I joined the 1st bootcamp in Chamonix to get fit. I work on a building site so my job can sometimes be pretty demanding, but even after the 1st session at bootcamp, I noticed my energy levels increase. The classes were a mixture of guys and girls and they were great. Really good workouts but good fun at the same time! I noticed a huge difference after the course and would definately sign up again!
Hope you're out here again sometime soon, Cheers! Dave Gavin
I only joined the Chamonix bootcamps at the last minute as I wasn't sure that I could commit to the full course but I am glad that I did.
The exercises are hard but fun and effective and David always gives an alternative option if someone can't do the original version. The course had loads of different people taking part of all ages and fitness levels and we all finished each session feeling like we'd really worked out.
David pushes you hard but he keeps the momentum up so that the hour flies by, you only realise how much you have worked when you are aching the next day!
I certainly got more out of bootcamp than I expected Ali Shayler (age 30) UK
After having a baby and doing nothing for a good year and half it was a necessity to start training again.
Boot camp for me is ideal as I am not good in motivating myself into sports, however I am very good at motivating myself to watch TV instead :-)
Every week you target another part of your body and even though the workouts are hard they are very rewarding. David is a brilliant teacher who makes you push yourself to do your best at all times and makes it fun to work out ( I know is that even possible) I wish that David would do these boot camps all year around because I would be there at every single one of them!!! Nissa French–Ramsteyn, UK/Dutch
I have seen not only an improvement in my core, but also in my "esprit". I enjoy coming over (all the way from St Gervais to Chamonix) to be whipped into shape by the ever cheerful sergeant David. Kris Bott, Franco/American
As soon as I knew David was going to be setting up some local Bootcamps, I wanted to sign up. I'd done some of David's classes at the gym and knew he was a guy who really knew his fitness stuff and if anyone could raise my fitness levels and get me out of the exercise plateau I was in - he was the guy.
From week 1 I really loved it - It was a lovely group of people and we all worked together. It was so much more motivating than being in a gym by yourself. David really encouraged you to push your body to do things you didn’t think you could even manage. There was such a wide range of ages and fitness abilities and David gave good options no matter what your abilities and so you could challenge yourself that bit further by trying out that slightly harder option and you would surprise yourself with what you could actually do. It was fantastic to be outside as well after being cooped up in an office all day long.
It was a fantastic back to basics workouts with no equipment, just using your own body weight and even if you think you are fit already you would still feel challenged and have sore muscles in the following days as you were working your muscles in a new way and no two sessions were the same so there is no chance to get complacent.
After just 4 weeks I have so much more upper body strength and can even manage full push ups! My core also is much stronger and though I may not have the full six pack washboard stomach just yet there is definition there so maybe more of a 4 pack at the mo and my skinny jeans fit much better. I've signed up for the next course already - my only problem now is that I find the gym so boring in comparison! I've loved Bootcamp so much thank you - looking forward to round two and doing some boxing! Joanne Proctor, Group Fitness Instructor (age 31)
Without a gym nor weights – it’s a challenging ‘back to basics’ getting fit regime! It’s also great to have the encouragement and camaraderie while pushing myself to get that last ‘suicide press up’ or last 10 seconds of ‘the plank’! David – you make torturing ourselves fun! Lisa Fleury, American
Having never done a Bootcamp before I was very nervous when I turned up alone, however I have now made friends through the bootcamps and by week 4 was noticing amazing results! I have lost weight and inches, although it’s a tough workout it’s worth every drop of sweat. Thank you David. Erin Muller, German (age 33)
We have just finished the FX Factor Botcamp Course - it was six weeks of great fun, hard work and fantastic results. Between us we lost 12 and a half inches and 48 mm of body fat! We also more than doubled our fitness levels!
This would not of been possible without the help, support and encouragement of our fitness trainer David Souter
A big thank you from Julie Young and Jane Walker. Julie & Jane, UK - FX Factor Bootcamp Winners 2009!
I enrolled on the FX Factor Bootcamp Course and absolutely loved it. It was exercising whilst having fun, losing weight, toning up and feeling great all at the same time. Everyone in the class thoroughly enjoyed it and we have all become good friends.
I have lost half a stone in weight, toned up and now feel much more positive about my body. David has motivated me to keeping fit and has made a tremendous positive difference to my health and fitness. He is very sympathetic and understanding to your requirements. He brings out your full potential without it being a mental and physical chore.
Now for the first time since I had my baby, I now actually enjoy going to the gym to keep fit and is now a part of my lifestyle. Martine Forster, UK - Lost over half a stone!
Sun, rain, clouds, snow ( not far away ) ,dogs, babies, toddlers, kids, mud, frogs, plank walks and yes I’ve finally got biceps !!! I'm missing Chamonix Bootcamp, come back !!! Chloe Bean
I'm writing to say how much I enjoy David's bootcamps and what a difference they have made to me. This is my second boot camp course. In the first, I could barely do the exercises, now I'm confident that my fitness levels are building up and I can feel the difference every day. My muscles feel well worked out all over my body. I am sleeping better and my diet has improved. Liz Haggis
I have really enjoyed the bootcamps, even the ones in the rain! I definitely feel stronger and will be waiting for you to come back to Chamonix! My dodgy hip and shoulder have improved with the exercises, my stomach may not be washboard flat, buts it’s not the jelly belly it was! Thank you! Mandy Worthington, UK
My bad back and injured shoulder have strengthened up and are now pain free plus I'm down 2 holes on my belt! Each session is different from the last and I love the exercises and names...can't wait for the next course! Steve Ashford (age 33), lost 15.5cms & 10mm of Body Fat
I just wanted to say that I thought the bootcamps were been great. Your kind of training is exactly the kind I enjoy. You correct us when we are going wrong and encourages us when we are tired. Keep up the good work when you go back to the UK Ellie Nicolaou, French
