About Me

Dec McLaughlin is the founder of DM Nutrition, a 'nutritionist in your pocket' that helps entrepreneurs lose up to 10kg, build 3-4kg muscle and 1/2 stress levels in as little as 90-days. Dec discovered the power of science-backed nutrition micro-habits during his Medicinal Chemistry masters degree where he helped friends and relatives lose up to 20kg without hours of meal prep or exercise. Since then, he has gone on to lead the restart of the Startup Grind Edinburgh chapter after a short period of inactivity. Speakers since 2018 include Gillian Docherty OBE (The Data Lab), Bruce Walker (FutureX) & Marta Krupinska (Head, Google for Startups UK). His passion for wellbeing and tech has also lead him into his current role at BackHug, a smart back therapy device that alleviates back aches and pains at home. He supports the commercialisation of this innovative technology, with the ultimate aim of providing relief for bad backs, anytime, anywhere.
