'I'm training to be a doctor and Nourish Drinks are fuelling my studies'

We were thrilled to hear from Michael Aarons, the son of one of our regular customers. It turns out, she's been buying the drinks for Michael to help support him during his medical studies!

Michael is 22 and in his fourth year of studying medicine at Cambridge University. His time is split between hospitals in Cambridge and Ipswich, where he's currently working on his surgical attachment. So where do Nourish Drinks come in?

'I spend a lot of time on my feet and suffer from bad back pain, which tires me out at the end of a long day,' Michael told us. 'My work means I end up skipping meals and I was losing a lot of weight, which made me even more tired and less able to keep up with work at hospital. Then my mum found Nourish Drinks and began ordering them in bulk for me every month!'

Michael says that having Nourish Drinks regularly has made a huge difference to his energy levels, alertness and strength.

'I usually have one Nourish Drink for breakfast each day, although I sometimes carry one with me if I know I'm not going to have time to make or eat a "proper" meal,' he says. 'After having a Nourish Drink for breakfast I can go for longer before needing to stop work for lunch and have more energy throughout the day.'

As a medical student, Michael is keen to make the best choice for his nutrition. 'The reason I started Nourish Drinks was because of the calorie density; it's just such an efficient product. But what keeps me coming back is that they taste so good,' he enthuses. 'I've tried meal replacements but I found it difficult to stick with them because drinking them feels like a chore. With Nourish Drinks, I legitimately look forward to drinking one every morning because they taste so good!'

Does he have a favourite flavour?

'I was surprised that I like all the flavours,' he says, 'but my favourite is definitely chocolate.' Good luck with your studies, Michael!

Nourish Drinks have the support of respected doctors, nurses and medical professionals. Find out more about the Nourish Medical Advisory Panel here.
