About Chris Wood

Chris Wood is an English professional golfer who currently plays on the European Tour. After finishing 5th in the 2008 Open Championship as an amateur he turned professional in 2009 where he finished as the European Tour Rookie of the Year. He scored his first European tour victory at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in 2013.

The Diet Consultant currently works with Chris, supporting him during the European Tour.

My goal when I started working with Sharmain, was to maintain my energy levels and weight from week to week whilst travelling the world playing on the European tour. This has always been a challenge for me, but Sharmain helped me to understand how I can meet my energy requirements through regular sittings and which foods I should be eating in each country to achieve my goals.

My diet now, is much more varied and consists of the right balance of nutrients.  For example I have learnt to consume the optimal amount of protein to maintain my muscle mass but not too much that it hugely increases my metabolic rate. I now have much better energy levels and I’m able to maintain a stable weight. As I progress in my training going into next season, I’ll be working with Sharmain on the changes I need to make to my diet to compliment this. I’d recommend Sharmain to anyone wanting to improve their nutrition knowledge and implement changes to their diet as a result.
