Holly Archer is an international middle-distance runner, has represented Great Britain at numerous international events, and is the current 2021 indoor European silver medalist over 1500m.

Previously Holly ran in the NCAA college system for  SMU (Southern Methodist University), Dallas Texas. Here she was multiple conference champion and ‘All American’ in her event (1500m) (Get more info from Holly to elaborate)

Holly trains over 70 miles per week both on and off the track.  A lot of the time the track and tempo running is high intensity – the training largely focuses on hitting specific running times and running paces. To optimize performance, Holly felt that she needed to focus more on her diet and nutrition to help ensure her gut and metabolism are working effectively to get the most out of training.

What Holly found out with her Food Marble Journey so far…

After tracking her diet for several weeks (but not using our FODMAP Kit) Holly has found that lactose and inulin appeared to show the most peaks with fermentation and hydrogen levels.  Interestingly Holly’s high fermentation scores caused symptoms such as bloating and swelling in the evenings, therefore she has decided that morning training sessions might suit her digestive system better.

Holly’s next step is to try our 6-Week Discover Plan and FODMAP testing kit. Holly will be able to discover what foods are causing her symptoms so she can design workouts and goals around her schedule instead of letting her symptoms dictate it for her.
