"How often do you find yourself grumpy or angry because you are starving? How much do you love going out to dinner, lunch or breakfast? How good is the feeling when your big plate of food arrives in front of you with the smell going straight into your nostrils? Sound familiar? It is through this passion and love for food that we get a true rush of happiness thanks to the relationship with our hormones. By eating, you create a sense of enjoyment and this is well supported by the release of endorphins and serotonin from your glands. In my opinion some of the best times of the day revolve around our food." Widely-acclaimed cook, certified physical trainer, and a dynamic new voice on health and fitness issues, Dan Churchill rose to fame in 2013 when, at the age of 23, he gained international attention and legions of fans after appearing on MasterChef Australia which aired in over 90 countries. His recipes have since been featured in publications like Men's Health, Women's Fitness, and on websites like PopSugar and Lululemon's blog. Churchill has a bachelor's degree in Sport and Exercise Management, and a master's in Exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning).
He speaks on a number of food and health-related topics and consults for athletes and sports teams worldwide to help optimize their performance through nutrition.
