88% of people who track their food intake for (just) 7 days lose weight 💥 

There are NO quick fixes, diet fads, elimination of entire food groups or starvation diets happening here.

You absolutely CAN build a lean & muscular athletic body - without feeling deprived or overwhelmed.

Hi, I’m Yvette, founder of Build Nutrition + coffee worshipper, ocean lover, and nutrient junkie.

In three decades of working and playing in the fitness industry, I've watched many competitive athletes and recreational fitness enthusiasts struggle to reach their goals – despite their efforts in the gym. I spent many years there myself. I was fit, but fat. Strong, but sick. Beyond frustrating!

Enter nutritional science with a holistic approach. 

Eating intentionally so that your body is satiated and thrives, that's the magic behind fat loss & performance!

We provide the science-backed information and the tools to start fuelling your body optimally.

With this new understanding of biological mechanisms, you're less likely to be misled by diet fads and tempted to deprive your body in search of unsustainable quick fixes. 

Your body starts feeling and functioning better, and guides new effortless choices that support your goals (bye bye cravings).

You see the results, all the while creating new habits & perspectives about food & your body (this is when the magic happens - aka your strong, lean and fit body emerges)!

Here’s how this works:

Meet Yvette. Once upon a time, she didn't know she was unwell until she experienced well. Through nutrition, she was able to heal from chronic IBS, hormone imbalances, sinus infections, and other ailments - all while competing at a pro level in physique/body building competitions. She's now passionate about helping others build the physique they aspire to, while enjoying optimal health and vitality, at any age and stage of life.
