Evi Van Acker

Olympic Medallist Dishes Out Food for Thought

A three-time European champion, Evi Van Acker also won several World Cup medals, she took bronze at the London Olympics in 2012, received the National Trophy for Sports Merit that same year and was named Sportswoman of the Year. Just to say, Van Acker is a Belgian sailing legend.

In between sailing, however, Van Acker also earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a masters in bioengineering. With what she additionally learnt during her career as a top athlete, she now devotes her attention to everything to do with (healthy) nutrition. She debunks myths and hypes, returns to the basics of a healthy diet, and discusses the impact of vegetables, fats, carbohydrates, etc. on our bodies. Food for thought, so to speak.
